When I heard the Guardians of the Galaxy may feature cameo characters from Marvel I got to thinking, who would I like to see? Nova was my first choice and here's my take on a GoG Nova. I went with a mix of classic, Annihilation, and movie-esq designs for his costume using a ML Constrictor base body, the arms and lower legs of Avengers Loki, head of an Ult Spiderman Nova, and fodder fists. Extra armor ridges were sculpted on as were his chest ports. Two Street Fighter dragon-uppercut blasts were modded to fit on his smaller fists and I created a double ball jointed flight stand that's modular in nature. He was painted with Testors Model Master Acrylics and a special mix of Formula P3 gold, metallic gold pigment, and acrylic sealer for the best gold paint I've been able to use. Now Nova can rocket towards trouble and blast the bad guys into orbit!

I knew we'd start seeing some nice Novas using that head. But the sculpts on the chest and legs are the really impressive parts. Nice job!

Thanks, I wanted to give him 'movie seams' but wasn't sure how to do it, so I used the armor's panel lines, heh.
