Has Galactus ever been at full power?

Ever?

Good question.  Is he at top strength right after feeding?  Or does he need a nap?  How long after he consumes the energy from his latest meal is available to him as power? 
Was the quality of the consumed planet's energy enough to completely energize Galactus?  Is any planet's energy enough?   
 
I'd like to think that Galactus, created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in an attempt to represent God without invoking of offending any religion or beliefs thereof, at full power is absolutley the most powerfull of any and all Marvel characters.  All of them, including:  Living Tribunal, Eternity, Beyonder, Phoenix-Force, Thanos, Korvac, the Celestials, etc.  Hell, all of them combined!  He's never been shown to be this powerfull, though.  It'd be a hard story to pull off;  Galactus at full power = God.  What does he do then?  Who could possibly be a viable  
opponent?  For what purpose would he need his full potential/peak power?  I'd like to see that one.

Well, he's constantly using his power, so probably no. But he's been close before. It's never really stated when he is at or near full power as much as it is stated that he is weak or low on power. From what I have seen, for him to reach near full power he would have to feed much more than he does usually. 
 
The only real examples I can think of is when he knew him and Tyrant were going to go at it he began preparing himself. After Annihilation we get to see how much he needs to consume just to get back to normal, so that is probably the pace he would need to go when trying to gain his max. He might have been at full power when Frankln and Valeria brought him from the heart of Eternity though.

Full power?  Probably not.  
 
Well-fed is another story though, though in this state he isn't devouring worlds so he tends not to fight when sated and thus his typical strongest.

There is no fully powered Galactus. He can't exist given the showings he's had. There is no limit to how much he can devour.

I hope he is at full power now.  When you pursue an invasion of Asgard, you better be ready.  No excuses.  This could be the fight of  the century.  Or maybe it will leave us,  the readers hungry for more. With a Galactus appetite.
