If, like me, you yearn for the days when Firefly was on television and still feel like it should return then you might be pleased to know that ToyVault have received the license to create toys and games based on its universe…
“Currently celebrating the tenth anniversary since its premiere on Fox, “Firefly” has maintained a strong position in the hearts of science-fiction fans all over the world. Starring Nathan Fillion as Captain Malcolm Reynolds with a ragtag crew aboard the spaceship Serenity, “Firefly” is best known for its unique spin on classic sci-fi tropes, witty dialogue and memorable characters, courtesy of beloved creator Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Avengers).
In the months to follow, Toy Vault plans to launch multiple table-top games, decorative pillows, a line of collectable mini-plushes of the entire Serenity crew, and more.
“Licensing ‘Firefly’ is a dream come true for all of us here at Toy Vault,” says Project Director, Zac Pensol. “We’re all great fans of the show and are committed to creating products that fans will think are absolutely… well… shiny!”
“The ‘Firefly’ fans are loyal to the franchise and this line from Toy Vault will certainly give them something to cheer about,” said Jeffrey Godsick, President of Fox Consumer Products.”
Now of course this doesn’t mean we will certainly be getting a board game but ‘multiple tabletop games’ does sound very promising. The role-playing game is still a big hit and of course the universe of Firefly and Serenity is pretty fantastic.
We can only hope this proves to be a great year for Firefly fans. You can check out a Forum Post about it right here on Beasts of War..
