Ok, usually I will be the first person to say, “Why in God’s name did you waste your money on that?” However, if you are willing to spend $2,495 on this…I’ve got your back! Hell, I might even fork over some Washington’s to help pay for one! I am a huge fan of Joss Whedon’s Serenity, and to see this Serenity: The Big Damn Replica makes my mouth water instantly. At the price of $2,495 you can be sure you will getting a true treasure. Every replica (and only 1,000 will be made) comes signed by Nathan Fillion, Capt. Malcolm Reynolds himself! That right there sold me! And it also includes an Original, Exclusive Jason Palmer Print. It has been 3 years in the making and it will finally be ready for purchase/pre-order at Quantum Mechanix on October 30, 2009 @ 12pm PST. It is the first and only accurate replica. It has been designed to be as realistic as possible. How so you ask….well: the sculpture itself was taken directly from the movie CG master files. It measures 19”x12”x7” making it a 1:180 scale. More then 250 parts are used to build each replica and every graphic on the ship is hand painted, NO decals are used. More then 30 different colors of flat and metallic paint were used and the ship also has 32 lighting effects! With a wireless remote included to control the lighting. The base looks like a landing pad straight from The Verse (which adds 4.5” to the total height) and when you look at the Bridge, you can see 8 different crew members. The replica will be shipped in custom-foam and a hand built wooden apple crate. And as a little extra, you can have it custom made: the engines pose, the shuttles in flight or docked, and the reactor shutters open or closed. It will take 30-90 days for it to be delivered and if you call to pre-order one, a personal concierge will help process your order (and only because of the concierge, I want to order one).
