Now we get to what makes Quantum Mechanix so amazing: big huge spaceship models! I'm very sad I couldn't be at SDCC, because I would have loved to see these in person. Still, I'm glad Brian took so many photos. These are definitely the greatest things Brian has ever photographed, in my opinion.
Let's start with the Viper Mk II from Battlestar Galactica, faithfully recreated with glowing engine exhausts and a detailed cockpit. The Viper comes in one of several editions. You can get the Adama version, signed by Edward James Olmos (and featuring Adama's call sign "Husker"). The cockpit for that one has analog gauges, and the package comes with William Adama's dogtags. There's a Starbuck version, with a screen in the cockpit showing the Eye of Jupiter. The Starbuck Edition comes signed by Katee Sackhoff, and comes with Kara Thrace's bloodied dogtags and a wedding ring. Finally there's the Fleet Edition, where you can have the call signs of other characters (or your own) placed on the side, as well as several other customization options.
Next we get to my personal favorite: the Enterprise-D from Star Trek: The Next Generation. This is a 25th Anniversary piece, which will be more expensive than QMx's previous replica, and is limited to 50 pieces. Yes, I'm totally lusting after this one. It's my favorite starship design in all of sci-fi, meticulously recreated and lit. Want SO badly.
QMx has a healthy lineup of Firefly items, and SDCC featured their replica of Serenity. This large scale model used 3D data from the studio, recreating the version of the ship seen in Serenity. The price is a US$2500, and you'll have a few customization options (whether or not shuttles are attached, engine position, etc.).
We'll end on the 1/6-scale TARDIS replica because I know absolutely nothing about Doctor Who. It does look like a pretty piece of kit, especially for fans of the show. Be sure to check out all the photos in the gallery!
