    Looks like Hyper Novae. Already got that. If something's coming out in 2016, it needs better posability, and not just to KO someone else's 3P product and change the scale. Meh.
    Frozen fingers/hand-gloves on an upscale is pretty unimpressive.

    I'd want a MP-styled version, not this--an up scaled CHUG figure.

    A reissue of Hyper Novae? Hell yeah!
    I always felt that toy was a way better Nova Prime than the MMC version, much better size and build.
    So downsize this to voyager please.

    I like it in general, but I think I'll stick with the Beelzeboss and versions of the character, playing the G1 and SG versions of Nove Prime.

    I could always use more Nova Prime representations, however I feel that this should be MPP-10 size, for reasons.

    Nope, as much of a fan as I am of the Battle Tanker Mold (I have 3 copies), I was not impressed by the original Hyper Novae. I loved the look of it, but it appeared too encumbered by the rest of the Tanker. If I'm to get a Nova to go with Prime, I'd like it to not only be a match in size, but in style as well.

    How dare you taunt me with the hope of a new, possibly comic-accurate, Nova Prime figure. I shall retire back to the shadows until another is announced.

    This isn't a new figure, it's an upscaled version of the MT Hyper Novae.

    So it's a new figure then. New as in, not having existed before.

    Exactly. Thus my hope upon reading the title, and disappointment upon entering the thread. Perhaps a mod should change the title.

    I suppose, but more specifically I was addressing the "new, possibly comic-accurate" statement together. Being an upscale version of an existing mold, if he didn't find the original to be comic-accurate, he probably won't find this one to be, either.

    Technically it's a new product, not a new figure.
