PREVIEWS Exclusive Marvel Nova Prime Funko POP! Figure Soars into Comic Shops – Action Figure Insider

(BALTIMORE, MD) — (June 6, 2019) — In 1976, Nova debuted in Marv Wolfman and John Buscema’s The Man Called Nova #1. Now, the elite superhero is making his maiden voyage to comic shops as a PREVIEWS Exclusive Funko POP! Vinyl figure along with a PREVIEWS Exclusive Guardians of the Galaxy #7 variant cover.

When the last surviving member of the planet Xandar’s elite Nova Corps is dying, he selects New York high school student Richard Rider to replace him. Rider, calling himself Nova, takes up the superhero mantle, along with the uniform, and receives the powers of a Nova Centurion. Now, he just has to figure out how to use them!

This PREVIEWS Exclusive POP! of Nova features the hero in his classic costume and boasts a metallic paint job and sculpted transparent energy powers, all with signature Funko flair. He stands about 3 3/4″ tall and comes in a collector-friendly window box for display.

Marvel Nova Prime figures ordered through July 1st, 2019, comic shops will receive a PREVIEWS Exclusive Guardians of the Galaxy #7 variant, featuring a cover by Funko’s Mike Martin that reimagines Nova’s first appearance in The Man Called Nova #1.

Daniel Pickett

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
