QMx has revealed an amazingly detailed replica model of the ship Serenity from Joss Whedon's Firefly. This is a must own collectible for any fan of the series, and it's one of the most detailed replicas of Captain Mal's ship that exists anywhere.
The Artisan Serenity is a massive 1:125 scale model that is created directly from the 3D models that were made for the 2005 movie. One of the things that makes this so unique is that each order is handmade in a process that takes about 130 hours, which is why it looks so damn incredible.
I'm sure you're wondering how much this bad boy actually costs. Are you ready for this? $7,495! If you want one, and can afford it, it's available for pre-order here. As much as I would have to love this, there's no way I could afford that price. It's still freakin' cool though! I've included all the details for the replica below the photos.
Quite simply, this is the biggest, most-detailed, most-impressive replica of Serenity ever created. QMx has spent the last decade in the tireless pursuit of this ship right here. And while we've produced many fine versions of Captain Mal's boat before, we couldn't help but feel there was just that little bit more we wanted to add, that extra bit of shiny we wanted to include. We wanted nothing less than to create the ultimate version of Serenity. Because until we achieved that, we can't truly say we've done the finest ship in the Verse justice.
What you see before you here the culmination of that dream. No detailed spared, no interior left unbuilt, this is the version of Serenity never to be eclipsed. Fact is, the only way to do better will be to wait 500 years and buy your own Series 3 Firefly!
Created from the digital files of the Serenity from the sci-fi TV series, Firefly. The QMx FX Cinema Arts model shop created the 3-D files, prototyped and 3-D printed this replica. Then QMx artisans did all the mold work and casting to make this screen-accurate replica of Serenity at 1:124 scale.
