Marvel Legends Infinite Series Nova


Moving on to some Marvel Legends figures. The Guardians of the Galaxy wave have hit. First up is Nova.




Nova is a much wanted figure for me. I missed the one from the Nemesis wave. It's probably a good thing though going by the reviews of that. This figure looks ten times better and he's in his modern look which I prefer. He's got a great head sculpt. They did the helmet really well. I like the shape of it. The star is a separate piece and was stuck on. It's hard to see his eyes but there's actually an outline for them. Check out the uniform. The torso is new. The detail on it is superb. I love the armoured lines look. The colours are great too. There's black mixed in with the metallic blue and the gold goes very well with it. The spikes on his forearms and legs are stuck on except for the tips.  

























The shoulder pads have hinges so as to allow more arm articulation. 


He's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, double jointed elbows, swivel hinge wrists, ab crunch, wiast rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees and ankle hinge and pivot. Take note not to keep his waist turned for too long as it'll bend the pointed parts of his belt. 






























Comparison shots.



Awesome figure! Just love it! Thanks for viewing!

The blue on him looks like the color from the plastics, if am not wrong from the pics. Similar to Iron Monger.

However he reminds me of Judge Dredd.

Nice post and figure. Thanks
