The guys at AFTimes have been at WonderCon (lucky, lucky people) and have been snapping toys all over the place and while most of them are great – Star Trek, Star Wars, BSG and Avengers seem to be the flavour of the day – these are the ones that we are no officially giddy over.
The models on display were Wash, Kaylee, Serenity herself and, as an added bonus for Joss Whedon fans, how about Doctor Horrible and Penny? Call the bank manager, I’m gonna need a loan!
