    Default Sideshow Firefly Figures Please!

    Firefly Fanatic and I began discussing this in another board, but it was best to give this topic a thread. I don't think I am the only one that feels that Sideshow could further empty our pocketbooks by exploring the rest of the Whedonverse. I think Firefly figures would do incredibly well for them. While the timing may not be perfect with nothing available to coincide with the movie, I think that all of the Firefly Fans would follow this line.
    My suggestions for figures would be the following:

    Captain Malcolm Reynolds (with browncoat of course)
    Exclusive "Pre-Cynical" War Era Mal with cross.
    Zoe Warren
    Exclusive War Era Zoe, in her warrior-woman gear.
    Jayne Cobb (with the hat from his ma)
    Exlcusive "Fancy Jayne" for the excursion to the heart of gold
    Kaylee Frye (in her mechanic's gear)
    Exclusive Kaylee in her dress from Shindig
    Hoban "Wash" Washburn (Would come with dinosaurs)
    Exclusive Wash with mustache
    Simon Tam (Regular version-Take your pick)
    Exclusive Hospital Scrubs Simon
    River Tam (Again, Take your pick)
    Exclusive Space Suit River
    Inara Merra - I guess just two different outfits, I can't think of anything episode specific for Inara
    Shepard Book-Regular Version in ponytail
    Exclusive Book with hair out!
    And for the guest stars (Because hey, the buffy line has a der kinderstod figure, so why not!)
    Jubal Early-because you have to have a villian, especially one as bizarre and truly frightening as Jubal (Bob. A Fett anyone?)
    Saffron-She could come with the Lassiter
    Tracey-Could come with his own coffin (and would be perfect for BTVS and Angel line as well!)
    Last but not least, the statue of Jayne from Jaynestown would be a great polystone piece, ala the POTA lawgiver statue)
    Any other ideas? Would this fly, or is this all just wishful thinking?

    Until then, I still have to deal with the constant barrage from LOTR items on my wallet. Sheesh...

    For those of you not familiar with Firefly there is a movie opening September 30th called Serenity which is the big screen movie for this series. People who haven't seen the show will still be able to enjoy the movie without needing to know the background.

    Love your list!!! I'd love to see an Inarra figure with both hair up and down - she's beautiful either way so I'm sure it would be a big seller.

    I'd even like a Jayne with a slash across his chest where River attacked him!

    Ooh, how about as an exclusive item for River that little box thing that Simon had her in?!!

    And to go with Kaylee and her Shindig dress I'd love to see Mal in his gussied up clothing too with a saber to go with him and his tightpants!

    And would also love to see some replica of Serenity herself! To scale for the crew to fit in would be wonderful but huge and too expensive for anyone to buy so a little one would still be great to have.

    I don't know that a line that deep would be supported, but I'd buy everything. The only two characters I'd really be interested beyond the initial 9 is Saffron and the bounty hunter from the last episode - he was really cool.

    And the Mudder "Jane" statue is a brilliant idea as an environment.

    If the Mal from Shindig were to be made, then perhaps it could be a two-pack, with Larry Drake! Get ready all of you L.A. Law fans! I wouldn't be sad if they made Andrew Bryniarski, just to let him get kicked into the engine of Serenity, or the creepy guys with blue gloves. "Two by Two, with hands of blue."

    I posted this on the FireflyFan board forever ago but I can't remember if I did here so here it is
    _________________________________________

    I would absolutely LOVE 1/6 scale action figures and I think Sideshow is the company to do them. Not only are they the master of this field they have an added advantage being able re-use many of their existing knives and molds for these figures. Just as action figures are made with molds, clothing (for toys and people) is made with knives that cut big blocks of cloth in to the individual pieces that make up a clothing item. So by re-using the knives on these figures they can save the money and time because a.) They already have the knives b.) They don’t have to waste time trying different patterns and cuts to find what will work c.) They know how the clothing will fit on their standard bodies.

    The same can be said for the molded components (heads, hands, foot wear, and accessories) but in reverse. Pieces made for a Firefly line can be re-used for the Buffy/Angel line especially since 4 of the 9 cast members appeared on those shows (3 of which were big multi-episode baddies). Here are some examples of what I’m talking about.



    Malcolm Reynolds

    Shirt: Dana Scully shirt in navy w/ shorten sleeves w/’leather’ vest – new item
    Pants: Anna Valerious pants in tan
    Jacket: Graduation Buffy jacket in a beige canvas
    Footwear: Jinx boots in brown
    Accessories: Necklace (just string), holster, Zoë’s gun (modified Billy the Kid), gloved hands (Xenia Onatopp), apple, knife (Jinx)
