Featuring authentic likenesses, screen-accurate costumes and accessories unique to each character, the QMx 1:6 scale articulated figure line aims to deliver the most detailed replicas of the Firefly crew ever made.

The debut figure in the line, the 12-inch-tall Captain Malcolm Reynolds, can be previewed at the QMx booth (#1227) during Dallas Comic Con in Dallas, TX. Features include interchangeable hands, screen-accurate brown coat, holster, and boots made of fabric, microsuede and simulated leather, functioning buckles and buttons, and Captain Mal’s must-have accessories: a PAL communicator and his trusty pistol.

A special version of the figure available exclusively from QMxOnline.com will include the Lassiter laser pistol accessory with an extra hand to hold it with.

 

“Fans have longed for a quality line of Firefly figures for some time,” said Jared Chapman, director of product development at QMx. “From real, working costume details to incredibly accurate likenesses, we think fans will be blown away with what they’ll get from QMx.”

 

Firefly has always been our very favorite property,” added Andy Gore, CEO of Quantum Mechanix. “Creating best-in-class realistic articulated figures for Firefly has always been a dream of ours – because the best is what this show and its fans deserve.”

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
