QMx is doing a lot to keep the spirit of Firefly alive, as you can tell from their presence at NYCC. Oh wait, that's a picture of Captain Hammer in the header? I think maybe they're just keeping the spirit of Nathan Fillion a... read
Themed to Star Trek, Star Wars, and Firefly We officially have one foot firmly in September and Loot Crate has announced the theme for this month's box. Drawing from the Sci-fi realms of Star Trek, Star Wars, and Firefly, the next round is called "Galactic." As always,... read feature
If you're a sci-fi fan, you should really know about QMx (Quantum Mechanix). Their entire existence is like a love letter to all of my favorite sci-fi TV franchises. At SDCC this year, the marquee features were two large scal... read
Some keychains and DC Comics posters Quantum Mechanix (QMx) has announced their SDCC exclusives, and while they don't look like anything I'd fight someone to get (the gold standard for exclusives), they do seem like cool souvenirs.
First up is a gold Millennium ... read feature
Who lives in the sewers under the city? It’s Monday, so that means Funko has announced another batch of SDCC exclusives. This one opens up with a Pop! mashup between SpongeBob SquarePants and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. SpongeBob is green, with Leonardo&rs... read feature
Or before the Alliance gets their hands on him Firefly may have been canned 11 years ago (holy cow that makes me feel old) but its fandom has stayed true. In fact I think some portion of them are keeping Castle on the air, but I digress...
Quantum Mechanix is at least par... read feature
Joss Whedon's space western Firefly has an absurdly dedicated fanbase... to which I don't belong, having never developed a taste for the show. That said, it's hard not to appreciate an impressive-looking spaceship when you se... read
One scene from Firefly that really made me smile was Wash playing with the toy dinosaurs that sit near the controls to Serenity. They were just plastic toys but seeing the way the pilot loving played with them, combined ... read
In terms of things that appealed to me personally, Quantum Mechanix was the big winner at Comic Con. Their booth wasn't the biggest or the flashiest, but it tapped into all of my nerdy sci-fi love. Star Trek, Battlestar Galac... read
No CGI magic here, just talented artists plying their craft This week on Custom Made Monday, we've gone to the movies for a bit! Or maybe back to the 1920s ... or the pages of your comic book ... or into the sky on a jetpack ... or all of the above. Why? Because they're all among this week's customs, silly.
Hit the jump to check it all out! read feature
Timely movie-themed customs pop up in this week's post Custom Made Monday is back this week after a brief C2E2-related vacation (pre-event preparation, mostly), and it seems in our time, we've missed a few things. Notably, there's some new custom designer toys worth sharing, but ... read feature
What happens when you give an amazing builder (Adrian Drake) a whole lot of LEGO Bricks (70,000 of them) and a whole lot of time to play with them (about 475 hours over 21 months)? You get... this thing of beauty. This 7-foot... read
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 defi... read
As a sci-fi TV show nerd and a figure collector, Quantum Mechanix is one of my favorite companies. And though I can't afford their more extravagant merchandise, there were plenty of smaller things to see at SDCC.

Quantum Mechanix has been doing its darndest to please Firefly fans, and their WonderCon stuff continues that tradition. I think Whedonites in general will appreciate their various figures, such as the Little Damn Heroes vers... read
