Micronauts

Galactic Warrior was a character in the Micronauts series. The depiction of Galactic Warrior has varied vastly from one fictional setting to another.

Development

Mego released Galactic Warrior in 1976. He was also released by Airfix. He was release by Gig under the name Guerriero Galattico.

According to Bryan Wilkinson on Facebook, when Palisades Toys was first planning on Micronauts toys to release they had hoped to release Galactic Warrior in blue, green, red and gold. This release would possibly be done in plastic. This toy was never released by Palisades Toys.

Concept art for a new version of Galactic Warrior was done by Mike Bazzell as part of Palisades wave 3, although the figure was never produced.[1]

Derryl DePriest said at SDCC 2016 that the Micronauts Classic Collection toys were created using a combination of the 1970's molds recovered by Takara and various Microman parts.[2]

Concept art for a new version of Galactic Warrior was done by Dave Waugh as part of Palisades wave 3, although the figure was never produced.[3]

In 2018 several parts for Galactic Warrior were released on Shapeways by Mathew Robert Ignash.

In the Marvel Comics Micronauts Bug was refereed to as the Galactic Warrior several times, although his design had no resemblance to Galactic Warrior and was based on the green Space Glider figure.

The design of Arcturus Rann was based on the blue Galactic Warrior figure wearing a Space Glider helmet and glider pack.
