LOS ANGELES — May 16, 2014 — Quantum Mechanix Inc. (QMx), a leading sci-fi and pop culture collectibles company, unveiled the first in a new line of realistic 1:6 scale figures for cult classic TV series Firefly at Dallas Comic Con, May 16-18 in Dallas, Texas.
The debut figure in the line, the 12-inch-tall Captain Malcolm Reynolds, is available for previewing at the QMx booth (#1227) during Dallas Comic Con. Features include interchangeable hands, screen-accurate brown coat, holster, and boots made of fabric, microsuede and simulated leather, functioning buckles and buttons, and Captain Mal’s must-have accessories: a PAL communicator and his trusty pistol.
A special version of the figure available exclusively from QMxOnline.com will include the Lassiter laser pistol accessory with an extra hand to grip it.
