Each bi-monthly delivery has been themed around one of the characters. So far, we’ve had KayleeJayneZoeWashburne, YoSaffBridge, and the Serenity ship – this month features Shepard!

You’ll always get a copy of The Signal. Inside you’ll find information on each product along with stories from Firefly. This month had a nice piece on the career of the late Ron Glass – who played Shepard.

Theme Pin – Value $5-10?

Each month includes a pin. This is my favorite pin yet – it comes from a very specific word of advice given by Shepard to Captain Reynolds.

Replica Jayne Shirt – Value $15?

This month’s exclusive shirt is a replica shirt. While this is a Shepard box, this is a Jayne replica shirt, which is odd but something I’m ok with because this is the kind of shirt I hope we get more of – stuff pulled from the costume design!

Shepard Little Damn Heroes Mini Master Figure – Value $20-25

OK – back on track with a Shepard Little Damn Hero vinyl figure!

I’m really enjoying Halo and Firefly crates – a lot of that has to do with the exclusive vinyl figure lines like this – please do a vinyl line for Marvel?!

Anyways, this really does nicely capture Shepard’s typical laid-back but ‘worthier’ attitude.

QBit Figure – Value $10-15?

We get a second vinyl figure this month (YAY). This will continue your Firefly QBit collection!

Typically, these are in every crate, but there were a few that they were excluded from. When they’re in the box, you’ll be able to snag one of two characters in these blind boxes – this month featured Zoe (who I got!) and Badger.

Firefly Pocket Watch – Value $10-15?

Stay shiny with this Firefly pocket watch.

Firefly-Cargo-Crate-March-2017-0027

This is in line with any replica pocket watch from a subscription – it’s not the highest of quality materials, but it’s a nice callout to the show – on the outside body and clock face.

Serenity: A Shepards Tale Graphic Novel – Value $8-10?

You’ll get a graphic novel from the Serenity comic series. This is an exclusive cover made just for Cargo Crate, too.

Firefly-Cargo-Crate-March-2017-0018

The Serenity series is a great way to extend the series for fans – but hopefully, Firefly will be brought back soon? Fingers crossed!

Atlas the ‘Verse Planetary Flash Card – Value $1?

In past boxes, we received to information cards on the Firefly Universe – this month everyone gets just the Haven card.

Firefly-Cargo-Crate-March-2017-0013

Each card has planetary details on the reverse side.

Firefly Travel Sticker – Value $2?

Continue your Firefly passport with this Southdown Abbey sticker!

Verdict: I’m always excited for Firefly Cargo Crate because I can’t wait to see the latest in the figure line. This month’s figure wasn’t flashy, but neither was Shepard – so it fits. Between both figures, the shirt, the pin, and graphic novel – this box is a win for me. How about you?

  1. I really like the pocket watch but I can’t for the life of me figure out how to set the time on it. I’ve looked all over it for a wind or something to pull out to set it and can’t find anything. Have you been able to?

    • Pull up on the little wheel on the top and twist it. That allows you to set the time

      • Done! I can wear (and use) it with pants, but what I need now is a Simon waist-coat (future Cargo Crate item – YES!) … are you listening Loot Crate?

        Thankyou very much for the tip on the setting of time – you are indeed Shiny!

        • Simon-style I mean, and with a (sturdy enough to hold the watch safely) fob-pocket.

  2. I got Badger for the Q-Bit and I LOVE HIM!!! Mark Sheppard needs more love

  3. I don’t usually buy these boxes because I’m not into figures, but I need the Special Hell pin. I’m neither a molester nor do I talk in theatres, but I feel like that was an iconic Shepherd moment, and I like the inside joke with other Firefly fans. They will smile upon seeing the pin; people not familiar with Firefly will wonder what the heck it means. I hope I’ll be able to swap for it.

  4. I thought the pin was weird because the Special Hell is for molesters. So wearing the pin that says “[I’m] going to that special hell” would be imply that you’re a molester. No, thanks.

    I was a bit bummed about the comic because of course I already own it. A nicer hardback copy.

    It feels like there was not a lot of care put into this box.

    • Also it is for people who talk in the theater.

      • I don’t do that, either. 😇
