Serenity- The Big Dam Replica


We have no idea how much this model replica of the Serenity ship from Firefly is but boy is it shiny. The 19 inch replica is a product of Quantum Mechanix which is the same company that brought us the $900 Cylon Raider from BSG. So we can only imagine this bad boy, with all its bell and whistles has got to be close to double that. Pricing aside this is a testament to true craftsmanship.

More than three years in the making, Serenity – The Big Damn Replica, has been painstakingly crafted to be absolutely screen-accurate in every aspect. Unlike most other iconic ships from science fiction, Serenity was designed from the ground up to be as realistic as possible, from her floor planto her construction, using real-world components andmanufacturing processes.  As one of her creators observed, the idea was to make Serenity so real, fans could easily imagine themselves walking her decks. With such a sense of place and familiarity, viewers would never feel lost in this Firefly-Class Transport.

The model will be at Comic Con all weekend, but you can sign up for the waiting list to buy one at the link. (Quantum Mechanix)
