Galactus is an omnipotent or nigh-omnipotent being to some, he has virtually limitless power from the Power Cosmic but what if he went toe to toe with the Celestials, who would win? A fully powered Galacuts or the Celestials?

Are you sure? The Celestials had a hard time with the Asgardian Gods and Galactus has enough power to wipe out the Asgardians with one energy wave (except Odin and Thor) so look at it closely and give me a reason for your answer.

Thor alone drove galactus away from eating the planet by smacking him off his feat, and since we have two major celestials (One-Above-All their leader, and the sleeping celestial) Galactus cant win.

Ok but didn't Galactus devour the Dreaming Celestial? And if the two were not part of the Celestials do you think Galactus coud beat them?

Galactus is a force of universal nature, relevant to Eternity and Death. The Celetials are just very powerful and intelligent aliens.

Galactus is far from omnipoetent or nigh! and it was the other way around, the Asguardians and the Olympians had a hard time just with one Celestial! Galactus might be lucky at best with a single Celestial, any more, and he better run to far away corner of the universe!

Galactus can beat the Celestials if he is in full power, Galactus is an eternal god, almost like God, but the Celestials are alien beings with immense power more like the Watchers, Galactus is too powerful for the Celestials to beat (including One-Above-All), are the Celestials evil or good? They seem so dispicable.

Galactus is NEVER full! That's his lot in his universe, to constanly consume planets, his energy constanly depletes! Again, as stated before, Galactus MIGHT do well enough against a lone Celestial, but he would get his A#$ handed to him by the Host!

Ok, if Galactus found a way to become fully powered he would be able to beat some Celestials (not all). Are the Celestials good or evil?

Neither, their above Godlike beings! They may possibly have something to do with Eternity himself, whether they came from him?

Ok, but Galactus wears armor to sustain his immense power, if Galactus fought them without his armor he would be much more powerful thsn any Celestial.

No, Galactus wears his armor to contain his power, so when he battles his power isn't used to its full extent but if he took off his armor his power would be released which means he would be too powerful for the Celestials. Galactus wears the armor because he can't control and sustain his complete power.

Ah, yeah, not sure where your getting your info from, but it's a little mixed up and you might want to research a little more :-) Galactus without his armour would be naked, and I doubt being naked would make Galactus more powerfull! P.S. I think you really need to also read up on the Celestials to better understand them, seems like your basing what you know solely based on Galactus, which that info seems to be slighty skewed!

Galactus could never beat all of the celestrials because there are billions of them. But there might not be that many celestials that could take Galactus solo infact there are not maybe the dreaming celestrial, or there OAA, but Galactus could beat any celestrial solo probably even two or three of them at a time he would have a hard time dealling with any more than that.

I Don't recall saying I was ever acting! and they would not do it cause their wise, but more so cause they know their place! The only two beings who went above LT was Thanos with the HOTU and pre-retcon Beyonder!  Thanos with Hotu was not in regular marvel 616 and Beyonder has been retconned since his original conception!

If I recall correctly, Thanos with the IG took on Celestials, Lord Order & Chaos, Galactus, The Stranger and Eternity himself  to name but a few cosmic/universal giants, and beat them all,  yet LT could turn the IG off with a click of his fingers and end it all!

True but that was only 2 celestrials he took on I said if they had about 16 of there most powerful ones. I think it was stated that the celestials don't come from outside of the multiverse.

@Theracles: sorry friend, i know that this is a long forgotten topic, but when exactly did the Celestials have a hard time with the Asgardians? The Celestials eradicated them, with ease. when Odin, Zeus, and Vishnu went to confront Arishem the Judge, they hit him with a combined blast of power that could have destroyed a planet, and Arishem barely took notice of it. then he opened a portal to all three of their respective domains, and began to destroy them, and all 3 of the gods went white with fear, because they could see him doing it. the only reason he stopped was because Odin, Zeus, and Vishnu got down on their knees to Arishem, and promised to never again interfere with the works of the Celestials. of course, it was a lie, and that was when Odin had the Destroyer Armor created, and took it to each and every god-head in the realms of earth, and had them infuse it with a portion of their own power. 1000 years later, Odin absorbed all the life essence of each and every asgardian(except for Thor) and entered the Armor. the total power of Odin and all of Asgard made the Destroyer grow to the same height of the Celestials. he then drew the all-powerful Odinsword, and went to fight the Celestials. the battle was a massacre. the only time the OdinDestroyer damaged a Celestial was when he chopped the arm off Nezzar the Calculator, and it instantly grew right back. even when he unleashed the Destroyers greatest weapon, his beams of total disintegration, one of the Celestials, just casual raised his hand, and deflected it like it was nothing. Ziran the Tester grabbed the Destroyers arm, and with the other arm, pummeled Ziran with enough force to pulverize planets, and it didn't even phase him. when the Celestials were finished with playing with the Destroyer, they used their combined power to reduce it to molten slag, leaving Odin's and all of the Asgardians life force to be lost in limbo. The only reason the Celestials did not kill Thor, or destroy the planet was Thor's mother, Gaea, appeared and begged Arishem to spare her son and all of earth. she gave them an offering of young gods, explaining that all mankind would one day have the same potential. The only reason Odin and the rest of Asgard were restored to their bodies, was because Thor went to all of the god-heads, and asked them to bestow another portion of their power into Mjolnir, which allowed Thor to retrieve their drifting life energies.  so i am just curious, at what time did the Celestials have a hard time? i do not ask out of rudeness, i ask because maybe you know something about another confrontation that i do not. 
 
Don't get me wrong, i believe that Galactus is more powerful than all but 3 Celestials: Arishem the Judge, Exitar the Exterminator, and the leader of the Celestials, One Above All, and in their cases i do not think they are more powerful, just equal to Galactus. But Galactus vs. an entire host of Celestials, i would have to give it to the Celestials, only because while Galactus may have more power than the Celestials, it is not limitless. the more he uses in a battle, the weaker he gets over time.

He did last a lot longer against the Galactus engine then they did. I think most of the Celestials turned tail and made a run for it.

@RoninTheFury: 
I agree with most of what you said. 
 
I do disagree with the Clestials you named to rival Galactus,The one above all (Celestial) has shown to be equal to the dreaming celestial and is only lord of the 4th host, not all of them, Galactus would stomp him. The invisible woman killed Exitar by expanding a forcefield in his brain after Thor put a big hole in his chest. In the Thanos imperitive Galactus was shown to be much stronger than any of the Celistials present, encluding Arishem. Galactus would stomp all three of them.  
 
The only Celestial that would have any chance in a 1 vs 1 with Galactus is Scathan and Scathan would most likely win.
