We got a glimpse over a year and a half ago, when pics were leaked and demos were spotted at a con and one of the test pieces was auctioned off for CSTS, and some of us remember the original Little Damn Heroes cartoons by Adam Levermore-Rich that the maquettes are based on.But now they’re here and she’s looking very shiny indeed.
You can get ’em at QMx or TFAW, but if you’re getting the QMx Insider newsletter you already know about the great 24-hour launch-day deal QMx has going today only (and if you’re not getting the newsletter, I think maybe you should so you know what I’m talking about, yes?). Besides, the newsletter will be the only way to find out about… I’ve said too much.
Shiny! The word epitomizes Serenity’s unsinkable engineer, Kaywinnit Lee Frye, or as she’s known to her friends, Kaylee. And now for the first time, Kaylee’s shining spirit is captured in this limited edition, hand-painted animation maquette, designed by well-known artist Adam Levermore-Rich, creator of the best-selling Serenity: Blue Sun Travel Posters. The stylized statue brings together Kaylee’s two seemingly contradictory aspects – savant engineer and girly girl – perfectly. Smiling beatifically, the 4 1/2′ Kaylee Maquette is sculpted wearing her mechanic’s coveralls (complete with teddy bear patch) and holding her trademark rainbow parasol, standing in her work boots on a black resin base. Limited to 1,500 pieces, this maquette will be a unique collectible that deserves a place in every Browncoat’s collection. Painted and ready to display.
They’ll be limited to 1,500, first in a series of Little Damn Heroes maquettes. And that’s the key, here: “first in a series.” I’ve seen the other two demo pieces, and I want the complete set. And I will yell at you until you buy enough of these to make the rest of the set a reality. And I can be pretty shrill, so get over to quantummechanix.com or TFAW.com and click away.
