My mind is blown by this custom Lego project. It’s not just an amazing reproduction of Serenity in Lego bricks, it’s 7-freaking-feet long! Let me keep running down the numbers: 7 feet, 135 pounds, 70,000 bricks, and 475 hours over a period of 21 months. Just process that for a minute. You know what it adds up to? That Adrian Drake, the builder of this beautiful beast, is awesome. Plain and simple.
Drake used the Serenity Blueprints Reference Pack from QMx as a beginning point to design his model of the Firefly class ship. He converted it to Lego and tried to make it as accurate as possible—I think he did a pretty okay job. Not only is the outside of the ship beautiful, he’s rebuilt some of the interior sets like the kitchen.
But it gets better. Inara’s shuttle detaches. The wings actually swing and move. The cargo bay and drive both light up and there are custom minifigs of the crew that are absolutely adorable.
Drool over more photos after the break.
