Shiny 1:180 Scale Firefly-Class Ship.

Is there anything sideshow collectibles can't do? This one will cost you though; about $3000 with a $600 deposit before they'll even begin work on it. Here's Sideshow's description:
Celebrated by millions of fans around the world, the titular ship of Joss Whedon’s visionary movie masterpiece, Serenity, has existed in all its glory in digital form only – until now. More than three years in the making, Serenity – The Big Damn Replica, has been painstakingly crafted to be absolutely screen-accurate in every aspect. Unlike most ships from science fiction, Serenity was designed from the ground up to be as realistic as possible, from her floor plan to her construction, using real-world components and manufacturing processes. As one of her creators observed, the idea was to make Serenity so real, fans could see themselves walking her decks. With such a sense of place and familiarity, viewers would never feel lost in this Firefly-Class Transport.
When it came time to develop this replica, we could do no less. Every bolt, every seam and every asymmetrical plate has been recreated with exacting attention to detail in this first and only screen-accurate replica of Serenity. Years of intense effort have gone into all aspects of this model, from the model sculpture built from the movie special effects master files to the paint job created to match not just the colors of the ship, but the materials as well.

Not sure if anyone will buy this, but the mere fact that sideshow is willing to make it shows that Firefly/Serenity will be around for a long time.
