Fans of Firefly have something to look forward to when Dallas Comic Con arrives in mid-May. For the folks at Quantum Mechanix Inc. have put together a line of action figures based off of the Firefly crew. That’s right, you can have you very own tiny-sized Malcolm Reynolds to place on your shelf so he can watch you while you do unspeakable things to yourself in the dark. Read on for all the details.

Time for your weekly dose of the fantastic fandom-based art that’s hit the web this week with your Nerd Art Dump. Each and every week we pick and choose through the masses of prints and pics on the digital frontier to give you nothing but the best to fill your geek needs. So on with the dump.

ABOVE: Because no super heroine is complete until they’ve had their chance at becoming an old 40s-stye pin-up model, Ant Lucia has put together these great works of art. Definitely the kind of thing that you could hang on your wall and not feel like a (complete) dork. (more…)

We’ve all hoped for more Firefly goodness over the years.  We’ve all thought that the idea of a shiny online game would be absolutely epic.  We all refuse to let the Browncoat love die.

Fox has answered the call and is releasing a Firefly Online game.  However, it’s going to be a “multi-user, social online role-playing game”.  Yes, you read that correctly.  It’s a gorram MUSORPG (or whatever) for Android and iOS.

So, so, so not shiny.  While it’s entirely possible that the game would be executed well and the fandom would warm up to it, because all things are possible in the ‘Verse, it’s definitely getting a lukewarm reception right now.

If you haven’t already completely tossed everything out the window, hit the jump for more.
