Hot on the heels of yesterday's Liliana Vess review comes the elven planeswalker Nissa Revane. Nissa has been featured on four Magic the Gathering cards over the years and referenced in an additional six. As I mentioned yesterday, this trend of character development in MtG is totally new to me, but I'm impressed. My favorite thing about this character (aside from her penchant for green magic.. and green clothes.. and green eyes) is the fact that she reminds me a lot of my favorite Magic card from my youth; Earthbind. If Nissa had fairy wings, she'd be a doppelganger for the lovely creature on the Earthbind card. Funko's Legacy Collections are showing the potential to be a major powerhouse in the action figure world. With the amazing number of cool licenses in their POP line, I can't wait to see if the same variety surfaces in the Legacy Collection. I have dreams of Dark Crystal and Labyrinth figures! Someday.. someday. Let's check out Nissa in detail below!
Overall, Nissa has a much duller appearance than the other two MtG Funko ladies. I think a lot of this has to do with her eyes. If they were a little smaller she'd look less doe-eyed and more formidable.
Nissa comes with an amazing wooden staff. I love this accessory!
Here are a few images of Nissa from Magic cards and promotional art.
Here is that Earthbind card I mentioned above.
Time for a Comparison Pic!
