Two guys could be a Corps. Not these two, but still.

So, a couple of weeks ago, the Wal-Mart by my work finally put some new figures. Nothing I was really jumping up and down for, no, but new! It had been some time, leave it at that. And I had a little gift card from work, so on my lunch break I picked up the Ultimate Spider-Man Human Rocket Nova!

I was bored with him before I went home for the day.

Let's accentuate the positive first: Um...the blue paint is a nice shade. And the disc-shooter doohickey he came with shoots pretty well. But the articulation is surprisingly lacking for this scale--granted, this isn't a Legends figure or anything, but he only has shoulders, hips, knees, and neck. And the neck commits the same fatal flaw the ML Nova had: he's a flier that can't look up.

So, apparently, neither dogs nor members of the Nova Corps can look up.

Hilarious as usual.

It's true too! Where ARE the rest of the Nova Corps?

Is it me, or do they look as though there is a Starro on their little helmets?

Funny stuff as usual goo. I reallt surprised(but maybe not?) by the lack of articulation on that new figure. Are he other figures in that line as messed up articulation-wise as this Nova one? I guess the Nova Corps' finally getting it's spotlight in the sun(kinda) thanks to Loeb and Bendis, so I guess kudos to them. But the whole things sounds like a continuity mess already with Rich still dead, and Loeb says the GoTG existed for the past 15 years? Huh.
