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.

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.

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…

The first time we saw Adrian Drake’s 7-foot long LEGO Serenity from Firefly, we wanted to see how it was built.

Now we get our wish. Apparently, Adrian rebuilt his masterpiece and decided to make a time-lapse video of it. He notes: “This was filmed over the course of about 14 months and encompasses 4166 individual images, taken at 60 second intervals, plus detail images from the first build.”

She’s a beautiful thing to behold and the video is very, very shiny.

It is also after the break.

These Firefly action figures might not be quite what you were hoping for, but when you realize they’re part of Funko’s ReAction line that’s a throwback to classic Kenner action figures, they make perfect sense. There’s Mal, Zoe, Jayne, Wash and Kaylee, each with matching accessories. Kaylee has a wrench, Jayne has two big guns, and Wash has a little blue dinosaur.

If these figures aren’t your thing, don’t despair. Funko is also releasing a realistic 6-inch Firefly figure line in the near future.

I can’t confirm this 100% because I didn’t see the catalog personally, but we have this picture of the new Funko catalog from this weekend’s Toy Fair and that sure looks like our Big Damn Heroes in Funko POP! style.

Little POP! Heroes? I don’t know what you call them. I just know that it’s shiny and must be mine.

The thought of Firefly returning sets every Browncoat’s heart racing, but Joss Whedon has ruled it out because everyone is busy with other projects. However, Tim Minear, former Firefly writer and producer, has other ideas. In an interview with EW, Minear acknowledges the challenge of reuniting the cast, but doesn’t rule it out:

I’m completely talking off the top of my head, but there’s a show that’s been on for the last couple years that’s reinvented the form in terms of the limited series. I’m trying to think of the name of that show — Oh yes! American Horror Story! It doesn’t have to be 13 episodes. Look how Sherlock does it.

It would still require an epic feat of coordination to get all the cast members as well as key players like Joss Whedon on set at the same time, but for a limited-run series, it feels much more plausible. Unlikely…but definitely plausible.

Malcolm Reynolds QMx Statue

Be still my Captain Tightpants lovin’ heart. QMx has announced their new Malcolm Reynolds 1:6 Scale Master Series Statue and it sure is shiny.

I actually got to see this statue during development and, I can tell you from personal experience, it’s a sight to behold. Cast in solid polystone, it’s 17 inches tall, including the 11.5 inch x 9 inch base diorama, and weighs more than 6 pounds.

QMx also combined digital and hand sculpting for maximum detail (right down to the brass buckles on his brown suede coat) and each statue is hand painted. It’s limited to 1000 units and comes with a COA.

Take a few and check out the pictures after the break. It’s definitely worth a look.

Talk about shiny, QMx recently previewed a just-completed 3D model for their upcoming 1:3 scale replica of Jayne Cobb’s best girl Vera!

QMx says she measures 11 inches from stock to barrel tip. No word yet on a release date, but considering how long fans have been hoping to see a Vera replica, we had to share.

In other Firefly news, QMx just put up the waiting list for their Serenity 1:250 Scale Cutaway Replica. Expected to ship by the end of Q2 2014, the Serenity Cutaway Replica is being offered in a numbered, limited edition of 2,000 for $349.

Check out more pics of the Serenity Cutaway Replica after the break.
