The First Official Firefly Action Figures Are Just a Wee Bit Disappointing

Firefly, despite its massive fanbase, has never had an official line of action figures.

Until now.

This new line from Entertainment Earth is the first licensed line, and even though I understand they’re going for a purposeful retro look here, something really got lost in translation. Despite the watermark and footnote, these are official images from their site, not stolen prototypes that will never see the light of day.

The figures from the neck down are perfectly alright given the style, and they certainly have appropriate accessories. But…those faces. It’s like they were assembled from a rough police sketch of the character in question. “What does Mal look like?” “He has brown hair.” “Anything else?” “Nope.”
