Hey, Browncoat: Didn't get that Big Damn Replica of the good ship Serenity from Joss Whedon's Firefly/Serenity for Christmas?

Console youself with this: the smallest replica, which will come to the 'verse soon from Quantum Mechanix.

It's a 2-inch model of the doughty ship, perfect for your keychain. There's no price yet, but we expect it's a lot cheaper than the $2,495 for the big one. Here's the official description:

Happy New Year, fellow Core-Techs! Thought we'd kick off the year with a sneak peek at a fun little item we currently have in development - the Firefly Keychain.

We've been working on this one for over a year now. If making a big Firefly replica is challenging, then making a small one is no less so, as you try to decide what details to keep, what to reject, and how to take a ship that in "real life" is over 269 feet long and shrink it - convincingly - down to two inches.

Cast is solid metal, the keychain has real heft to it. We used the studio CG effects files, shrunk down to a ridiculous extent, to capture the design, but obviously had to make many tweaks along the way. But our designers love a challenge, and we just couldn't resist the idea of a Serenity that fits in your pocket and that you can carry around with you, where ever you go.
