What do you guys think. Will it be a Firefly or Serenity line our Christmas gift?

Ok, I'll try, but it'll be hard. My hopes are really up most of the time. :monkey3

I know we've been discussing it on the Genereal board, but I thought I'd bring it here to talk exclusively of Firefly as a possibility, but I see it's not. :confused:

I'd be down with some Firefly or Serenity products... not going to hold my breath. But if the 5th element can get product... than nothing is impossible!!!

Lets just hope we don't get bobble-heads.

yeah i definitely laughed when i saw the 5th element bobbleheads. they couldn't even come out with something cool for that license like a 12" corbin dallas or 12"leeloo.

Anything that's not a 1/6th style product holds no interest for me unfortunately.

One can only dream that we will see a Firefly line.

really? so in a room full of strippers, 47 inch plasma screens and hot wings, you'd be in the corner carefully stroking the hair of your Origins Connor MacLeod with Exclusive Leather jerkin?

1/1 scale is awesome, especially when it comes to strippers. ;)

If you'd have said Medievil Kurgan I would have agreed. The jerkin on Connor sucks.

While I would buy the crew (and possibly a Reaver), I highly doubt that's the license. My guess is it is something Lucas related. Sideshow has a great relationship with them through their mutual Star Wars figure cash printing machine. So, I think they both are expanding that relationship. My first guess after reading the newsletter, esp. with the secrecy, is Indiana Jones. God, I really want a decent, affordable Indy, Dr. Jones Sr., and possibly a young Indy. It would also make sense with the new movie SUPPOSEDLY beginning production next year.

I agree, it could be Indy (especialy if we predict it based on people's opinions), and that would be great, but I want my Firefly figures!!:monkey1

Well as you probably know by now, the new license is WarCraft. I have no interest in that, but hopefully it will do ok for Sideshow. I kind of doubt it though...

Majestic has both the current and classic incarnations of BSG. So it wouldn't be that.

Still holding out hope that the New Year announcement is Firefly but given all the hoopla surrounding Warcraft and its total lameness I really can't imagine what it will be - but I doubt it will hold any interest for me.

I don't have any hopes on the New Year surprise, don't know why, I don't think it'll be another license. I hope I'm wrong.

Boo all around on the new announcements (for me at least). Maybe Firefly will be announced next year :monkey2 :monkey2 :monkey2

Part of me wonders if the potential Firefly licence is the reason we haven't seen any of the Firefly actors appear in the Buffy line ?

After all - you've got Gina Torres in both the X-Files (she was in the episode that the 2nd Doggett is from) and Angel and Nathan Fillion from Buffy - both of whom were fairly major villains in the Buffyverse. Maybe SSC really does hope to get a Firefly licence but doesn't want to kill the potential by making these guys in another line.......... Well - I hope that's the reason anyway.

Well, again, to be the bearer of bad news (at least for Whedon fans)...

The new license is Spider-man 3, but it's probably just for Premium Format figures or statues/maquettes. I doubt Hasbro would turn over the 12" figure license to Sideshow right now, though they did with Star Wars.

It would be smart for them to do that as they probably have enough other Spider-man 3 product to keep them busy, and they could do fully sculpted 12" Icons and 9" cloth/plastic figures of Spider-Man 3 and give Sideshow the cloth/plastic 12" figure license.

I doubt it though, as Sideshow would already have to be working on it to be released in time for the movie, and they would have released a full press release on what exactly their Spider-man 3 license involves.
