    I mean one that can face it's wings forward and shoot, and perhaps bigger. The Gold Standard is still MT Hypernovae, as IF's has issues(They really need to revisit Powermaster OP.), and MMC's wings can't point forward to shoot. Do you want to see one?

    If you ain't afraid of pin punches, the X-Mortis upgrade kit blows them all to pieces. Absolutely a stunner and one of the best pieces on my, or any, shelf.

    The SND X-Mortis was an infuriating nightmare to put together. The wings are the only good thing about that kit. Sold mine a few days ago in fact.

    Waiting to see how the oversized Hypernovae ko turns out.

    I hope so. Wishing for Perfect Effect to try or Maketoys to take another shot in Cross Dimensions.

    I hope so. I want to see him get the full 10 inch leader mp treatment and figures like DX9 Carry and FT Roadking prove how far integrated big truck to normal bot transformations can be these days so I think Nova would be a prime candidate for super efficient engineering potential. Him and Fallen, both would make for jaw dropping mp designs.

    Not from 3Ps anyway. I expect one to come from Hastak sooner.

    I'd hope for a commander class figure though it would probably be a leader.

    Yeah I really hope we get more Nova Prime and Fallen figures. I’ve always loved both of those designs.

    I’m actually on the hunt for a Hyper Novae at the moment, but I’d gladly take more figures of him, either official or third party

    I think, if the character was more prominent in popular media, we'd be seeing more of him.

    There's the KO of Hypernovae. Who knows when/if that thing'll ever come out, though. But it's the one I've got my eye on.

    Unfortunately no. For some unknown reason, 3rd party simply ignores massive characters in TF lore like the Fallen and the rest of the primes. There's big money there I'm telling ya. I have been begging for a MP sized Fallen for years at this point and no one has made one for over a decade (outside of a legends class figure).

    I honestly think the fandom should be asking for that rather than their 3rd or 4th optimus, cyclones, or whatever G1 bot that's been done to death.

    Maybe we'll get one as a repaint/remold when Maketoys revives themselves and releases their Galaxy Convoy:

    I was really shocked we didn't get a retool of Cybertron mode Optimus Prime in Siege as Nova Prime

    Throw me in for another X-Mortis fan. It's a lot of fun once you get him together, very photogenic. The wings and head sculpt are A++

    I'd love to see a Nova Prime based on the original design from the comics.

    I had the Primo Vitalis Kit, and it was beautiful, but wasn't fun to transform, and the CW Prime mold's waist pin was terrifying to remove. So much so that both me and my buddy who had the same kit both had SUPER loose waists post-upgrade.

    As for Nova Prime, I'm hoping we'll see something official in the part three of the trilogy post-Earthrise, since right now it's G1 redux again. I could also see Nova getting a fan figure vote option too. I'm in the camp waiting to see what the KO Hyper Novae is like, because I love that figure, but it just doesn't scaled with my other IDW stuff. If the KO is wonky, I'll probably pick up MMC's Nova Prime at some point.

    However, Nova was also an IDW1 baddie, so unless they work him into the new comics, I doubt it.

    They tried to work him into Combiner Wars (kinda) when he was teased in Transformers: Devastation. Too bad that never got a sequel.

    that is still one of the most disappointing things ever to me, devastation was a great game and should have gotten a sequel
