Nova Prime Project Update and New Images
MISP Steve - Sunday, December 13, 2009

Mastercollectables, a bunch of fanatical collectors that wants to make custom creations come to life. Have posted an update and new images and details for their fan made edition of Decepticon leader Nova Prime. The update includes a lengthy Q&A about the figure with details on the project and their plans for it going forwards.

This figure is based on IDW's Generation 1 comic character, Nova Prime. Also known as Nemesis Prime, he was the predecessor to Sentinel Prime. He believed Transformers to be the supreme life form that Decepticons should hold rein over all lesser life forms in the Universe. Read more about Nova Prime at

    Answers to Nova Commander Queries

    1. Is Nova Commander going to be mass produced? The short answer is No. The reasons are the following.

    a. Mastercollectables was started by a few Mecha collectors. We just have the same passion and we met up over coffee and just brainstormed. As usual we had ideas and concepts on paper so each of us decided to put our abilities into the partnership. We consider ourself a designer startup. Minimal external funding for our projects. We enjoy what we're doing for the fans. Thus to mass produce Nova Commander frankly is beyond our current financial capabilities. We have our day jobs and just pour in our extra time and some pooled funds to get some of our small projects going.

    b. The Nova Commander pictures that you see was designed for the purpose of testing certain engineering designs for joints especially for larger mecha. We do envy the designing skills of Studio Half Eye. Their engineering is fantastic and even themselves after producing so many fantastic resin engineering designer toys have decided to focus on - designing and kits. To just do complete resin toys was time consuming and costly. For e.g a Perfect Transformation Getter-1 is like 500USD when it first came out..and we consider SHE to be close to the best and this was from an established company.

    c. Mastercollectables is a very small team with limited resources. We do not have the resources to mass produce this. To mass produce this would mean metal tooling which would cost in the area of 150-200K or more depending on complexity.

    d. Why is Nova Commander so difficult and costly to produce?
    1. It's large.
    2. Lots of parts - Close to 200 parts. The more parts for a resin toy..the more expensive to cast,mold, reproduce and build.

    e. So any ETA if it's even produced?
    At this moment we're still in the contemplation mode, doing testing and using Nova as a engineering test sample so we can safely say No ETA.

    f. Then why sell the prototype testshot on ebay?
    It's our way to "fund" this difficult project as we go along in "refining it" for future projects. We hope our fans would like our products and support it their way.
