Capture

Jesse L. Martin and his Flash co-stars Rick Cosnett and Carlos Valdes sang a gospel version of the Firefly theme song that will have you once again crying over the show’s demise. They did it as a thank you after Joss Whedon made a large donation to their Kickstarter.

The group is working on a short film called The Letter Carrier that tells the story of a black family in the 1860s hiding from slavery in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The story is told through music, making this thank you especially appropriate.

See Joss’s tweet and the video after the break.

serenity hull

Firefly fans, I think you’re going to need to free up some wall space and start clearing your credit cards because QMx just announced their new Serenity Hull Art Artisan Replica and it’s a beaut.

The replica is 1:3 scale, and made of aircraft-grade aluminum. It’s also painted with aircraft-grade primer and paint and then weathered to show a little wear and tear.

Pre-orders start Monday, February 9th at 10 a.m. PST.

whedon slayer theory edit

The Whedonverse is a wonderful place and more than one fan has put forth a theory that many Joss Whedon shows are connected in one form or another.

This cross universe Slayer theory, however, may be my favorite so far. It’s also the most comprehensive.

Check it out after the break and prepare to have your mind blown.

firefly fistful of credits

We all know the primary goal of the crew aboard Serenity: Get a job, do said job, get paid. Done and done. It sounds so simple, but it seems as though jobs never go as they should. You can experience the frustration of Captain Malcolm Reynolds and his crew in the new board game Firefly Fistful of Credits. It doesn’t come with a cool Serenity Yahtzee cup like this game and the board isn’t as complex as Firefly: The Game, but it’s nothing to sneeze at. Here’s what it’s all about:

The game features 3 distinct heist scenarios inspired by the episodes “Bushwhacked,” “The Train Job,” and “Ariel;” each with their own highly-detailed board, tokens, and Heist card, which details unique objectives from the show that must be accomplished in order to win.

The game is designed for 2-4 players, and each of those players can choose any two Serenity crew members to team up to complete the heist.

You can pre-order now to receive Firefly Fistful of Credits in April.

2020_firefly_serenity_flash_drive_extended

Serenity is used to haul cargo in Firefly - legal and otherwise. You can use her to store your virtual cargo with this snazzy 8GB flash drive from ThinkGeek. A Serenity USB drive was first proposed by incubot last year, but despite having an official license, Fox told them they couldn’t use Kickstarter to raise funds. They still made the product available for purchase, but fulfilling orders has been a slow process. However, ThinkGeek seems to swooped in with a similar product (which may or may not be incubot’s design). Either way, it’s significantly cheaper and in-stock now.

See a couple more photos of the information smuggling Serenity after the break.

The level of squee that happened when I saw this Firefly Magnetic Poetry by ThinkGeek would likely be considered embarrassing if it was seen by the public.

Magnetic poetry is already fun, but Firefly magnetic poetry with the Firefly font and words like gorram and ruttin’? I may paint a wall of my house with magnetic paint!

The set contains 428 words (and suffixes) from the show and even has a a magnet of Serenity and the Firefly logo.

I know I’m gonna get one. How about you?

serenity 1

QMx got serious about making an insanely detailed and beautiful replica of Serenity, and they’ve delivered with a screen accurate model. We saw the debut of the giant Serenity at San Diego Comic-Con last summer, and now it’s available for pre-order.

They spared no expense in making this limited edition, artisan 1:124 scale model. Their Cinema Arts model shop made the 3D files and 3D printed the replica. It has over 250 parts, 100 LEDs, multiple layers and shades of paint, and more:

Incredible complexity. More than 250 parts — cast and laser cut.
Extra strength. Steel skeletal structure and internal brass structure for main engine rotation.
Interior bling. More than 100 LEDs controlled by a 12-volt system.
Multi-layered colors. A total of 25 different colors of high-quality studio paints.
No decals. All graphics on Serenity are painted on by hand, even Serenity’s logo.
Exquisite details. Miniature bridge with crew members, galley with furniture and cargo bay with cargo.
Movable parts. Manually operable cargo bay door and hinged reactor vent covers.
Wireless remote. Custom electronics created by QMx FX Cinema Arts with a four-channel remote control. Effects include:
Interior lighting for the bridge, galley and cargo bay, and illuminates docked shuttles.
Active formation lights
Rotating gravity rotor lights
Reactor housing illumination with a hard burn and twinkling firefly effect.
Cool display. Serenity’s lighted display base is a box stand with a Translight inset of a nebula. It features a 12-inch steel stand that adjusts at a variety of angles for optimal display.
Pro prop crate. Each Serenity is shipped in custom-cut foam and stored in a hand-built wooden apple crate, just like what the pros use to safeguard their props

The edition is capped at 500 pieces. Honestly, I’ve never seen a replica taken to this level before.

See all the beautiful details in photos after the break.

QMx_SerenityPlush

QMx started making Firefly merchandise because the owner, Andy Gore, is a bonafide Browncoat. They keep making it because they love the show and because we need our Firefly goodies.

I know I needed this Serenity Plush, so I’m just pleased as punch that they went and made it. I’ve seen her up close and this 18-inch Firefly Serenity Plush is quite shiny, with awesome detail (it even has little plush shuttles!).

You can sign up for the mailing list now to be notified when it’s available to order.

Check out more pictures of her after the break.

ducttape-serenity-1

This duct tape version of Serenity from Firefly is shiny because there’s nothing but silver duct tape as far as the eye can see. It’s the creation of Jacob LaRocca who is a member of Artisan’s Asylum, a Massachusetts-based maker community. The ship was on display at World Maker Faire and if you want your own shiny Serenity, check out LaRocca’s imgur page to see just how it was built.
