(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.
The Funko POP! Marvel Nova Prime PX Vinyl Figure is limited to just 30,000 pieces. As an added bonus for retailer orders, every six POP! 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.
The PREVIEWS Exclusive Marvel Nova Prime Funko POP! (OCT188711, SRP $11.99) is now available for pre-order at comic shops. To find a comic shop near you, visit www.comicshoplocator.com.
