I finally finished in time for Wonderfest this figure of 'Nova' from Starblazers.

For years, I've been wanting to do a figure of this character, but didn't want to portray her the way she was in the 70's.
I wanted to bring her a little more up to date.

The live action film also did this, taking many cues from the RDM Battlestar Galactica 'Starbuck' played by Katee Sackhoff.

However, I wanted to keep her a little sexier than depicted in the live action film.

Years of looking for the 'right' look and kit, finally finally paid of at WF 2010.
Resin Pimps had a great figure of 'Black Widow' that I felt I could modify.

I removed the wrist gauntlets, and the utility belt.
I also took the tops off the guns and scratch built ones from the show.
I changed the black stripe pattern a touch to flow better and brought in the 'arrow' theme. I was pondering over the holster, but decided because she had two guns, to omit it. I felt if she had two guns, I should have two holsters. That idea then seemed like she would look like she escaped from a western.

Last, I replaced the base, with a scratch built one. I liked the idea of something looking like a blasted chunk of Yamato hull.

Hope you guys like it.

Not bad, not bad at all! Well done!

Yuki is one of those iconic characters that, over at Japan's Wonderfest, SOMEBODY does a new one every year. This surely stands up to that. :)

And, good job, you got pretty close to the changes made for the new Yamato 2199 series currently ongoing!
