A sci-fi television collection that was solely 11 aired episodes lengthy has turn into a cult traditional amongst sci-fi followers and was the third television collection by Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel author, Joss Whedon. Set 500 years sooner or later, Firefly is totally different to different sci-fi collection in that it doesn’t have an enormous price range, the Serenity ship isn’t a giant highly effective battle cruiser however a run down area freighter and it doesn’t have an enormous solid.

For Firefly followers who’re additionally Funko followers, there are 6 small ReAction figures out there – why they didn’t make a full set is a thriller. At simply 3.5 inches tall, these tiny poseable figures aren’t as detailed as some however if you wish to get your children (giant or small!) into Firefly, I’m positive they gained’t thoughts!
My favourite Funko’s are the POP variations – these are extra stylized than the motion figures however I believe they’ve higher particulars. Sadly there appear to be solely 5 of the primary characters out there – Malcolm, Zoe, Kaylee, Jayne and Hoban however all of them look nice. I do like this Malcolm Reynolds plushie – I believe it captures him fairly effectively contemplating it’s only a plushie!
In this final part, I discovered a few of my favourite t-shirts – there are a great deal of totally different ones out there however I believed these three had been essentially the most placing. The Serenity Owners Manual seems to be an adaptation of the well-known Haynes motorcar manuals – a really intelligent concept and can attraction to any Firefly fan who additionally dabbles with automobile mechanics! The Firefly in a jar additionally appealed to me as a really intelligent adaptation of a well-known exercise. We don’t have many fireflies right here within the UK to go and seize one for a jar however I’m accustomed to the concept!
I loved Firefly however I wouldn’t name myself an enormous fan – I definitely can’t quote dialogue and even acknowledge each character however I believe I’m going to revisit the collection – perhaps I’ll recognize it extra now I’ve time to take pleasure in it correctly.
