The comedian of the team
Hoban Washburne is one of the central characters of the series Firefly”. Not having found its public at its release, the series lasted only 14 episodes and 1 TV movie. It is however considered, today, as cult by many fans. This explains the release of this series of pop figures! Firefly is a futuristic science-fiction series with a western/steampunk atmosphere, taking place a few hundred years in the future, when humans have colonized the galaxy. It’s a clever mix of action, government conspiracies and humor! The action is centered on the crew of a ship, the Serenity, whose more or less legal activities range from transporting passengers to transporting illegal goods, including burglary. The ship is captained by Malcolm Reynolds and his first mate Zoe, both of whom had fought with the Independents against the current government: the Alliance. Hoban “Wash” Washburne is the pilot of the ship but also the husband of Zoe. If we know that she didn’t like him at their first meeting, we can imagine that he finally managed to conquer her with his humor and his big heart. For that and his taste for the Hawaiian shirts, we can bring him closer to another emblematic character of Joss, Xander Harris of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. With Kaylee, the mechanic, it’s up to them to make sure that the ship can still fly!
