Wow, That’s Big!: The Eye Of Abeyllion


The Eye of Abeyllion is a huge human eyeball the size of the planet Jupiter. No, it is not something that looks like an eye, it IS an eye. No, the eye is not frozen, nor does it have an atmosphere, water, soil or lifeforms on its surface. It maintains a temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit and rotates in random directions. Really, it’s like a huge Mad Eye Moody eye out there orbiting the star Abeyllion.

Nobody goes anywhere near that system because the Eye creeps them the fuck out.

Wow, That’s Big!: The Giant All Beef Hot Dog

At Ed’s Big Weenie, a hot dog restaurant in Critter City, Texas, they have a 20 pound all beef hot dog. It measures 3 feet long and is available for purchase at $75.00. It comes with a proportionately sized bun and whichever condiments you like, including sauerkraut. Chili and cheese are extra.

Amazingly enough, Ed sells about 300 of these monster dogs every year, mostly during conventions like CritterCon.

Wow, That’s Big!: DAF Dragonslayer A-3

On Earth 446-H, the world is at war. In the fight against the Darkness League, the Dwarven Air Force has created ment flying ships. The largest of these is the Dragonslayer A-3, a combination bomber and aircraft carrier. The A-3 measures 2,000 feet long, 300 feet wide and has 18 decks. 6 of those decks are above the flight deck, which can launch any planes up to the size of the Human X-90 bomber/fighter.

The ship normally carries 30 DAF Griffon class fighters and as many as 300 assorted bombs. It has a crew of 1,500 dwarves, gnomes and halflings.

Wow, That’s Big!: The Air Whale

.

Nobody on Earth 21-M knows where the extraterrestrial lifeform dubbed “The Air Whale” came from, but pretty much everyone on the planet has seen him more than once.

The Air Whale is a nearly transparent creature roughly shaped like a Blue Whale. It measures just over 3 miles long and a half a mile wide for most of its length. From belly to back, it is about 1,000 feet thick.

When it appeared in Earths atmosphere in 1950, it caused a worldwide panic. Most governments were ready to try shooting it down, but cooler heads prevailed when it did nothing aggressive. Sadly, the North Korean Air Force did attack it with 5 jet fighters. Just before they got into firing range, the creature emitted a single focused sonic pulse and blew the planes up. Since that day, nobody has made an aggressive move against the Air Whale.

The Air Whale is known to consume pollutants in the atmosphere, and often “dives” cities like Los Angeles, New York and Beijing, swallowing up tons of smog with each dive. Later, the creature excretes boxcar sized pellets of solid waste, mostly carbon.

Wow, That’s Big!: The Godskull Of Murn
.

First of all, the Godskull of Murn is not the skull of a god. It was the skull of a Storm Giant named Pargor that wanted to be three times the size of the largest Storm Giant ever. Since that giant had been 110 feet tall, the Wizard that Pargor had taken prisoner dutifully zapped him to 330 feet tall, at which point Pargor stumbled over his own feet and fell off of his mountain, breaking his neck and 34 other bones. The Wizard then escaped and ran off into the mists of history.

Fast forward 600 years and a group of down on their luck monks find the skull of Pargor. A bit of praying to their god reveals the truth about it, but the monks see a money making opportunity. They haul the skull back to their small monastery in Murn and start telling anyone who will listen that it is the skull of some dead god and it may have certain divine powers.

Now, 25 years later, people come from far and wide to look at and touch the skull. All of them leave some amount of money in the donation box, so now the Holy Brotherhood of the Skull has a fine big monastery and many monks spreading the good word.

Wow, That’s Big!: The Incredible Steam Elephant

.

Shown for the first time at the 1882 London Exhibition of Science & Industry, the Steam Elephant was roughly 5 times the size of any pachyderm that ever lived. It was created by Professor Henry Leamington and his top student, Sir Malcolm Redmond.

Besides having the gigantic steam powered creature do several tricks, the Professor would give up to 20 people a ride around the Exhibition on it, at a shilling per person. Thousands of people took the ride.

After the Exhibition, the Professor toured with the great beast for three years. He went all over Europe, Asia and North America. In the fall of 1885, he returned to England and placed the Incredible Steam Elephant on permanent display in the British Museum of Science.

Wow, That’s Big!: The World’s Largest Four Sided Die

Was built on Earth 1-L by eccentric gaming billionaire Dave Gary. It measures 30 feet on a side and is made of foam rubber and painted with a special paint that gives it a pink marble look. It was made, along with equally huge 6, 8, 10, 12 and 20 sided dice, to celebrate Dungeon Con 25 in 1995. All of the dice are fully roll-able once they are lifted to the top of the 150 foot dice tower that was built the same year.

Each year, 1 hour before the con opens, the huge dice are rolled. Any con attendee whose badge dice images match the die roll get VIP treatment, a big exclusive swag bag and a free com badge and hotel suite for the next year’s con.
