Marvel Universe Nova

Here's a look at the Marvel Universe Nova. I wanted to post this earlier but various things kept me from doing so. Most worryingly is that my computer has been acting up. I would hate to dip into the toy budget to fund a new computer. Lol. Anyway lets get on to the figure.

Starting with the helmet. I think its fine except that its hard to make out his eyes. The inside of his helmet at his eyes is painted a light blue. I think black would have been better so there would be more contrast with his eyes which are silver. The chest armour is stuck on to his chest. The shoulder armour is flexible so he can still raise his arms. The gold attachments on his arms and legs can be moved. Just be sure to position them properly when posing. There's some shiny blue mixed-in on his costume on the front and upper back torso. The front view is okay but the back view is awkward.  

The collectible comic shot is of Nova #1.

Articulation. He's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, single hinge elbows, wrist swivel, torso pivot, waist rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. He can't look up much due to his helmet but he can look down pretty well.

A comparison shot.

Nova is another great figure. I think wave 20 has been superb. There's still no sign of them at retail but I think a couple of the speciality shops have them. Thanks for viewing!

Nova was always a favorite of mine as a kid and this figure looks great. I really like the pictures you took of him too.
