Good Head sculpt
Nova is a figure that I personally do not care about. My Marvel Legends collection does not go this deep and this one has very little appeal for me. As a figure it has good articulation and a nice sculpt and stands well on it’s own. I hope we don’t start seeing “kid” versions of character, I’m not down with that concept at all. Easy pass for me.
