I just went on ebay to search Firefly/Serenity and they had action figures of Jayne and Mal...they are awful! They look nothing like either character and Mal quite frankly looks like a distorted Jedi...what happened?? Were there monkeys???

I choose to rise instead of fall- U2

yeah, I love my Buffy & Spike dolls...
but Mal & Jayne were pretty substandard IMO.

So I made my own Jayne: I found a 12" GI w/a goatee
and dressed him up as Jayne (w/the hat...)
well you can see him here:

Embers, GREAT doll! I especially like the tiny Blue Sun shirt you dressed him in. 10 out of 10!

see now that's a Jayne doll....now you should see if you can do something about poor Mal in his cast off Jedi clothes and someone else's face.

I agree about the action figures, however, there is one good one out there. It was done for a convention(i think), and is an unpainted Jayne figure. It looks almost like the statue from Canton. I had to get one. Look for it if you get a chance.

So who is he?
He's my husband.
Well who in the damn galaxy ain't!

I made the t-shirt with a little tiny iron on transfer
eventually I want him to have a full set of the famous Jayne shirts!

I think the 'pin-up' is actually from the clockface in the Rythmn and Hues office. (Is this a sad geeky thing to know?)

I think our BDHs were just so excited that anyone wanted to make action figures,
that they just weren't too critical about how they looked!

and who else was insulted that River got passed over?
I mean she WAS the Action Hero of 'Serenity' after all....

hmm that's a point...but if Mal and Jayne look like that, what horrors would they have visited on poor sweet River. I can only imagine...they'd probably use left over princess amadala dolls or something:(

and being geeky about this stuff is good...
because it MATTERS!

But I thought they stripped River's amygdala. Oh, Amadala. Never mind.
