Coming out of the Toy Fair, it looks as if we have a new Richard Rider Nova toy.

Hasbro revealed their Marvel Super Hero Mashers and Titans figures where we see a Nova, which looks a lot like Nova Prime Richard Rider.

Though Marvel Comics cancelled the Richard Rider Nova comic book because of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, the Richard Rider Nova action figure that was a part of the Marvel Infinite movie line actually sold the best (even better than Rocket Raccoon and Iron Man). Likewise, fans chose Richard Rider to be the Nova of choice for the Marvel Heroes 2015 video game.

Now in what looks to be a no-brainer, new Richard Rider Nova action figures look to be coming out.

Marvel Comics replaced Richard Rider with a Spider-Man-ish character that fans call NINO aka Nova In Name Only. Sales on NINO quickly fell below the Richard Rider run, and Jeph Loeb, who was responsible for replacing the true Nova, was off the book by issue five.
