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.

sean maher

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…

Firefly fans, I think you’re going to need to free up some wall space and start clearing your credit cards because QMx just announced their new Serenity Hull Art Artisan Replica and it’s a beaut.

The replica is 1:3 scale, and made of aircraft-grade aluminum. It’s also painted with aircraft-grade primer and paint and then weathered to show a little wear and tear.

Pre-orders start Monday, February 9th at 10 a.m. PST.

fillion big bang theory

Even if you’ve never watched an episode of The Big Bang Theory, you may want to tune in on Feb. 19 since it’s been announced that Nathan Fillion will be making a cameo appearance as, well, himself.

From the looks of it, Raj and Leonard are going to be geeking out over Captain Reynolds and, really, can you blame them?

I don’t know if they release blooper reels from TBBT, but I’ll bet Nathan’s episode has more than its fair share.

firefly fistful of credits

We all know the primary goal of the crew aboard Serenity: Get a job, do said job, get paid. Done and done. It sounds so simple, but it seems as though jobs never go as they should. You can experience the frustration of Captain Malcolm Reynolds and his crew in the new board game Firefly Fistful of Credits. It doesn’t come with a cool Serenity Yahtzee cup like this game and the board isn’t as complex as Firefly: The Game, but it’s nothing to sneeze at. Here’s what it’s all about:

The game features 3 distinct heist scenarios inspired by the episodes “Bushwhacked,” “The Train Job,” and “Ariel;” each with their own highly-detailed board, tokens, and Heist card, which details unique objectives from the show that must be accomplished in order to win.

The game is designed for 2-4 players, and each of those players can choose any two Serenity crew members to team up to complete the heist.

You can pre-order now to receive Firefly Fistful of Credits in April.

20fb_firefly_ornament_set

Dear fellow Browncoats: it is possible to cover a small tree with ornaments inspired by the Firefly universe. ThinkGeek has a four pack of ornaments that feature the Blue Sun logo, the Independent flag, an Engineered by Firefly plaque, and Serenity herself. They also have a tiny Jayne hat. You can compliment these ornaments by making some felt ornaments of the Fruity Oaty Bar girls and painting ornaments with the pattern from Kaylee’s umbrella.

See pictures of the other Firefly ornaments after the break.

firefly zoe wash

This 2 second animation featuring Zoe and Wash was created by artist Stephen Byrne and is part of a larger project called The Animated Adventures Of Firefly. In addition to the clip, he also released a time lapse video of just what went into making this two seconds happen.

Both of those things would be fascinating and a joy for any Firefly or animation fan on their own. But if you’re like me, this two seconds likely gets you right in the feels.

Head after the break to see the making of video.

2020_firefly_serenity_flash_drive_extended

Serenity is used to haul cargo in Firefly - legal and otherwise. You can use her to store your virtual cargo with this snazzy 8GB flash drive from ThinkGeek. A Serenity USB drive was first proposed by incubot last year, but despite having an official license, Fox told them they couldn’t use Kickstarter to raise funds. They still made the product available for purchase, but fulfilling orders has been a slow process. However, ThinkGeek seems to swooped in with a similar product (which may or may not be incubot’s design). Either way, it’s significantly cheaper and in-stock now.

See a couple more photos of the information smuggling Serenity after the break.
