Mal and Jayne "Action Figures"
Monday, February 21, 2005

There's been discussion of Firefly action figures today. I thought that a couple of my kid's Star Wars figurines gould be modified fairly easily to make decent Mal and Jayne figures. What do you think?

This is quite neat. Jayne is good, Mal definitely needs a darker color for his coat (and not two colors).

Malcom Reynolds an ancestor of Han Solo? No, no, no. He's a descendant

Yeah, I'm thinking that I could cut the coat shorter (though I think that it's too bulky anyway, but it doesn't come off!) and re-paint it, along the rest of the clothes to match Mal's. Then definately darken his eyes and hair colour.
Han Solo and Mal -- oh yea, there's more than a family resemblance!

The Jayne *is* pretty good. His hat comes off so I could either mod that one or make a small orange mom hat. When my son opened his present he looked at this figure and said "It's Jayne!". :)

Of course, I'll have to buy my own figurines to modify.

Groovy! I like how Jayne looks like he's pointing down, as if he's sayin' "get yer ass over here!" or somethin' :)

<Grinning> I definately think that I'm making a trip to "Toys R Us" tomorrow. I like to paint gaming minatures as well - maybe I could find some to work with for the whole crew... hmm, maybe in the "Worlds of Warcraft" series? Suggestions?

Mal was Han, but Jayne was who?

Definitely a good Jayne, not too sure on Mal though - is he trying to be Deckard in BladeRunner? :)

To Rat: The "Jayne" figure looks to be Lt. Page, technical leader of the SpecForces commandos seen in RotJ (destroying the shield bunker), serving under Han, Luke & Leia.

Fear my geek cred.

Inara and the Shepard getting hitched!
Oh dear, I "know" that this is just wrong of me... but I saw this (very) little screen-cap and had to giggle at the first thought that came into my head about it: Huh, Inara and Book are getting hitched! It's a delightful set-up -- there's Kaylee at the side as the witness; as Captain, Mal is officiating; and our spectrum opposites Inara and Book are warmly, if somewhat formally completing thier vows. Ok, yea, it ain't ever gonna happen, but I've always liked the respectful relationship between the two (who coincedently Mal has the most trouble with condoning either's profession, hmm...). I noticed this first when Inara switched roles with the Shepard in the pilot eps: he went to her for confession and she offered her solace to him. Very interesting symbolism. Joss is soooo good at this stuff! Anyway, just a ramble from an iconoclastic iconographer.


Jayne, Mal, & Book
Well, here's my first set of our BDH's "action figures" that I modified from a (Force 9?) and a couple of Star Wars figures. I remodled Jayne's hat a bit, cut back Han Solo's coat to Mal's length, cut back the long ponytail and mustache for Book and repainted everbody's costuming, skin and hair tone. Not perfect, but it was fun. Now I have to fine models for the other figures!
