I had never seen the Firefly television show when I eventually rented the movie Serenity. It looked cool. Once I saw it, I loved it. Someone then lent me the Firefly series DVDs. Wicked cool concept with great stories and great characters. Though loved by fans, the Joss Whedon show was canceled after one season.
There were some figures released a few years ago, but Funko finally stepped up to the plate with some great 6 inch, nicely articulated figures, showing off five of the main crew characters. Included are Malcolm Reynolds, Jayne Cobb, Zoe Washburne, Hoban Washburne, and Kaylee Frye.
There are also two convention exclusives out there - Malcolm with Long Brown Overcoat and Jayne Cobb with his trademark knit ski hat.
A fun series from Funko. Nicely done.
Apparently likeness rights and licensing rights won't allow for more Serenity characters, but Inara, Simon, River, The Operative, and Reaver would make an excellent Series 2. Just sayin!
