- Fully Articulated Body: 38 points of articulation
- Realistic Portrait: The figure’s portrait has been sculpted by hand to capture not just a likeness, but the essence of Mal’s character.
- Browncoat: Pattern and fabric matched from original screen-used coat. Everything from the microsuede material to the brass buckles give this coat the heft and drape to move realistically with the figure.
- Button-Down Shirt: Authentically tailored to fit the articulated body like a real shirt.
- Tight Pants: Custom fit for thrilling heroics, these tight pants come complete with “Solo” stripes on the sides.
- Suspenders: Gotta keep your tight pants up! These suspenders use real fabric and simulated leather to match the real thing.
- Boots: Mal’s boots are sculpted to look like heavy-grain, weathered leather and posed to showcase the wide confident stance of a ship’s captain.
- Gun Belt and Holster: Buckles, hardware and simulated leather are all cut to match the screen-used costume.
- Mal's Pistol: The Moses Bros’ sidearm can sit in the holster or fit into the special plug-and-play “shooting” hand.
- PAL Communicator: For when Mal needs to tell Jayne he’s standing right next to him.
- Left and Right Gloved Hands: Since 1:6 scale fingers are just too small to articulate in a convincing way, multiple posed hands are provided, each one easily swapped out.
- Left and Right Bare Fists: For the next time you find yourself in an Alliance-friendly bar come U-Day, looking for a quiet drink.
- Right Pistol Hand: Each hand is meticulously sculpted for not only correct anatomy, but also to hold the many accessories the figure can be displayed with. This one holds Mal’s trusty sidearm.
- Left Open Hand: Can hold a PAL in a pinch.
- Figure Display Base: To help the upright man stay that way.
- QMx-DIRECT EXCLUSIVE! Lassiter Laser Pistol: Buy your Articulated Mal Figure direct from QMxOnline.com and you’ll get the bonus loot of one screen-accurate Lassiter and a modular hand to hold it with. It was Mal’s biggest haul – plus a herd of 1:6 scale cows would have required a much bigger box!
