We’ve been anxiously awaiting Alan Tuduk’s Con Man webseries, and the new trailer he and Nathan Fillion dropped at SDCC has us more excited than ever. It looks like it will be the next best thing to Firefly season 2.

But, before we get into it, refresh your memory with the synopsis:

Con Man centers on the post-show life of Wray Nerely (Alan Tudyk) the co-star of “Spectrum,” a sci-fi series, which was canceled before its time and went on to become a cult classic beloved by fans. Wray’s good friend, Jack Moore (Nathan Fillion) starred as the series Captain and has gone on to become a major celebrity, while Wray (Tudyk) hasn’t found his desired level of stardom. Wray is the begrudging guest of sci-fi conventions, comic book store appearances, and different pop culture events; however, everything is not as it seems from the outside. The series will explore these events and all the weird and crazy things that happen to them along the way.

Con Man also features a plethora of Sci-Fi’s biggest personalities including: Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), Amy Acker (Person of Interest), Gina Torres (Firefly, Suits), Sean Maher (Firelfly, Eastsiders), Felicia Day (Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Seth Green (Family Guy/Austin Powers), Mindy Sterling (Austin Powers), Jewel Staite, (Firefly), Summer Glau (Firefly, Terminator: SCC), Sean Astin (Lord of The Rings), James Gunn and Joss Whedon.

QMx has teamed up with Bicycle to produce a new set of Firefly Playing Cards and, yes… they’re pretty shiny.

The art is by the talented Ben Mund and features Browncoat favorites like Vera, Mal’s pistol, and even Serenity herself on the Ace of Spades. QMx says there’s even a Easter egg or two for the sharp-eyed fan to find.

They’re in stock now and you can see more pictures after the break.

The shiniest ship in the ‘Verse is returning to the skies for Firefly Online. We’ve already seen a clip of Sean Maher reprising his role as Dr. Simon Tam as well as Alan Tudyk as Wash, but the latest clip features Captain Tightpants himself (Nathan Fillion) waxing poetic about his days on the show and how happy he is to be stepping back into the role. A second clip has voice director Andrea Romano sharing her excitement about being able to work with the cast.

See the videos after the break.

Jesse L. Martin and his Flash co-stars Rick Cosnett and Carlos Valdes sang a gospel version of the Firefly theme song that will have you once again crying over the show’s demise. They did it as a thank you after Joss Whedon made a large donation to their Kickstarter.

The group is working on a short film called The Letter Carrier that tells the story of a black family in the 1860s hiding from slavery in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The story is told through music, making this thank you especially appropriate.

See Joss’s tweet and the video after the break.

I don’t think there was a doubt in anyone’s mind that an Indiegogo campaign for a webseries featuring Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion would be successful.

They’ve already quadrupled their funding goal with 28 days left to go.

Yes, Browncoats are the best—and these guys know it. As thank you to their fans, Alan and Nathan unveiled a teaser for Con Man. I think you’ll agree that this is money well spent.

firefly monopoly

I’m not sure I really need to say anything other than there’s a new Firefly Monopoly game. Do I need to say anything other than that?

Well, I guess I should tell you it’s coming in April and give you a link to buy it. Because it’s so very shiny.

scully and mulder

At New York Toy Fair 2015, which kicked off on Saturday and is running through Tuesday, there is A) a lot of Frozen, B) A LOT OF FROZEN, C) a Tribble coin purse from The Coop (bless), and D) all the Funko you can shake an adorable plastic figurine at. If you weren’t there either because you weren’t in New York or you were in New York but made the completely reasonable decision to stay indoors where it wasn’t frakking freezing, you can live the experience vicariously through me. There’s no visual aid for my reaction to the upcoming X-Files figures, above, but it was something like this. Behind the cut: Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jaws, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Arrow, Firefly, The Fifth Element, Star Trek, and more!

These blurry images are your first look at the upcoming Funko action figures for Firefly and The Rocketeer. These 6″ figures have appeared in the catalog for Toy Fair and they look great. There’s the whole crew from Firefly and The Rocketeer as a sole figure. It’s hard to see the details, but if they are anything like other recent Legacy collection figures, they’ll be fantastic.

At the very least they’ll be a lot better than Funko’s ReAction Firefly figures.

See the Rocketeer version the break.

Cool things are happening out in the ‘Verse in terms of the Firefly Online game. The game’s companion app, The Cortex, was recently released and FFO is releasing new content both within the app and over on their Facebook page leading up to the game’s release.

Part of that new content comes in the form of videos, and the newest addition is an interview exerpt with Sean Maher. Maher is reprising his role as Dr. Simon Tam and it’s very sweet to see what he has to say about returning to work with our Big Damn Heroes.

The full interview is available inside the Cortex app. Apparently, interviews with the rest of the cast will follow each Wednesday.

Plus, for those of you who like the shiny in your hot little hands instead of online, the February Loot Crate will include one of four collectible cards with a special gift code that will unlock the Overland premium ship in the Cortex.

Just make sure to use the code “NERDAPPROVED” at checkout to get 10% off your Loot Crate subscription.

Check out the Maher video after the break along with a “Behind The Performances” video after the break…
