SO! That pre-order of the mysterious "Firefly with book" thing on Amazon came today!
It’s a teensy Firefly figure—bigger than a blind bag but, obviously, smaller than G1 Firefly. But she is molded to be in the same pose (even has the same “boot foot”, ha ha ha!)
She’s really, really cute. Her mold looks a little funky compared to Big Firefly because Little Firefly’s head is bigger. But considering they actually had to make a new mold for her? PRETTY DAMN GOOD.
What really sells me on her, though, is they she comes with a teensy version of Firefly’s purple star brush. I just … really appreciate that they took the time to do the research and make that little brush.
She also come with a little “book”, cardboard bound. Not a story, but some celebratory pages featuring Firefly, Glory, Starshine, and Snuzzle (same poses you see on current G1 shirts and such), plus some pages with backcard art. Including the never-produced Celestial ponies.
All in all, I’m glad I took a chance and pre-ordered her.
By the way, Tiny Firefly has symbols on BOTH sides. BOO-YAH!!
