For some reason, they made me think of the Solo twins…

Browncoats will never give up hope that Firefly will make a triumphant return, but there’s nothing at all on the horizon officially. Instead, we have this fantastic fan film, The Verse, created by the folks at Loot Crate. It’s technically not Firefly, but it’s about as close as we’re gonna get.

You may be familiar with Loot Crate as the monthly subscription service that delivers a box of geeky goodness to doorsteps every month. This month it’s a Galactic box full of Firefly-themed products, making this the shiniest month ever. That’s why they’ve given us this 16-minute film that was written by fans, for fans, and even has props produced by Quantum Mechanix. Clearly, this was a labor of love that took the combined effort of Browncoats from all corners.

The stars of the short talk and look like the cast of the show. Makes you wonder if they’re a bunch of Browncoats, too. That cast includes Ryan Caldwell, Jennifer Wenger, Zack Finfrock, Peter Weidman, Tybee Diskin, Alex Marshall-Brown, Ewan Chung, and Vic Mignogna. They’ll make you want to kick back and watch the show all over again.

See the film after the break.

Aside from their awesome Firefly collectibles, QMx has a history of creating fan friendly goodies that can make their way into packages. They’re up to those awesome shenanigans again with these adorable Firefly papercraft figures of Captain Malcolm Reynolds and Serenity.

The figures were created by Argentine artist Gus Santome and are printed on 100-lb satin-finish paper. I saw them at SDCC and they were really cute!

Just spend $25 or more on Firefly products at qmxonline.com through September 30, 2014 while supplies last. Some limitations apply, so read up if you have questions.

Firefly game

Get ready to roll dice Browncoats, because a Firefly Collector’s Edition of Yahtzee is coming your way. It’s a bizarre combination that I didn’t see coming, but it is pretty shiny. The set comes with a cool Serenity ship cup (I want to buy the game just for that) and custom dice. Pre-order now to play Yahtzee with Serenity in September.

Guardians Ballesteros

The more I see of Patrick Ballesteros’ art, the more I want to buy it all and wallpaper a room with it. There’s something about his work that just makes me smile.

This 25¢ Wonders series imagines your favorite characters as kids and gives them the best kiddie rides ever. I think Ripley from Aliens is my personal favorite.

You can see more of Patrick’s “Wonders” after the break.

Preview night at SDCC was insane. Busy busy busy and a sea of humanity. But I did find a very shiny girl within that insanity over at the QMx booth.

Meet the newest QMx Serenity.

She’s 1:124 scale and based on the filming miniature with a length of 26.5 inches, width of 17 inches, and height 7.5 inches.

She also has an aluminum and steel internal armature with over 100 led lights and she’s handcrafted by the artisans at QMx.

Oh and, her engines turn in case of a need for a Crazy Ivan.

No word yet on release date or price, but she’s lovely to look at.

Head after the break to see more.

It looks like Redditor daandruff’s wife is quite the Browncoat. He posted the above pic of his wife’s painting of everybody’s favorite Firefly-class transporter, Serenity (look closely: does it look like the primary bumper panel fell off? No? Good. Mal will be happy), and I have to say that she did an awesome job.

However, as commenters pointed out, the only problem is that the stars are visible in front of the planets. The good news is that fellow Redditor jaxspider saved the day with Photoshop. See the corrected version after the break…

Earlier this week, we posted a little napkin art from Joss Whedon in which he brought back Buffy the Vampire Slayer at a fan’s request. Look’s like he’s outdone himself with this bit of art, now expanded to the size of a notebook. This time, it’s Firefly and he jokes that he’s bringing back Wash, just like Agent Coulson. Heart. Breaking.

See the tweet after the break.
