This is a project of my own design, being an homage to the crew of the Serenity.
If you really need me to explain who these characters are then you are a tremendously lucky person, because that means you get to watch Firefly for the first time (Now go watch Firefly then come back!).
For everyone else, I hope these recreations are acceptably accurate to please.
The only figure that is not customized is Inara. She wears a completely different outfit each episode! I finally decided that when I get around to it I will make her black and red outfit with gold necklace from "Trash".
River is depicted in her outfit from Bushwacked (sorry, no post holer).
I call this piece "Sudden but Inevitable" it is the primary control station of the Serenity. Along with Wash and his two "dinosaurs".
Firefly faithful elements:
- THE RED BUTTON!
- Complex geometry cockpit
- The two "desk lights"
- The interpersonal video coms
- the keyboard
- Recessed blue view screens
- The two screen panel with a camera in the middle that Mal uses to call people.
- The yellow cables that run along the back "right" of the cockpit and in the middle of the core console (represented by gold rod and tile with cables)
- The round "sensor dish" all the way to the left.
- A control stick that can easily rotate.
I need to add a "pack" to the end of the control station. There is a leather satchel on the console that I have overlooked to this point.
Here is a simple depiction of the "back" of the cargo bay, along with the wheeled mule and some cargo. Looks like Mal has some nutritional/immunization bars!
This is a work in progress I call "The Heart of Serenity"
True to show elements:
- Bronze bowl at the front
- Four "wings"
- Removable catalyzer!
This build also has an element that comes out the back of the casing that allows you to spin the engine.
I intend to add a few other elements to this like Kaylee's hammock...It is a lot harder to make a good lego hammock that you realize...go ahead and try...its really hard.
Also, I was just watching "Trash" again at ATX...and do shin wha! (or whatever) I just realized that the case of the engine slides open...well, now I gotta do that!
This is the Mess of the Serenity. Done in MLcad. Not sure if or when I will get around to building it, but I have recreated it as accurately as I can with the videos and pictures available.
If there is a lot of interest I will look into making instructions and part list for these.
