fun with this playset as you travel with the motley crew of renegades
aboard the Firefly-class mid-bulk transport vessel Serenity as they
out-think Alliance pursuers and deadly Reavers with nothing but wits &
bailing wire. Yes they smuggle, yes they harbor a fugitive
schizophrenic telepath, yes they don't all get along so well. But
the one thing they all have in common, and the one thing keeping them all
together, is Serenity. Now you too, can relive all the adventures
yourself in LEGO style.
From the creative mind of Designer Thomas Lockwood comes a masterpiece of design,
function, and fun. A true Browncoat's dream come true, the Firefly
Serenity Playset is the set that never was meant to be. This set has
everything you want in a toy: Immediate recognizability, features to play
with, spectacular part usage, and
model accuracy & proportion. It all comes together to make this
building toy a playable set with an eye towards hours of fun (in building
This playset has an interesting history. Originally the design
was put up on the LEGO
CUUSOO site with the possibility of becoming an actual LEGO branded
product with a required 10,000 votes. After just a couple of months,
in what must have been some sort of speed record, all votes were obtained and
success seemed imminent. Much to the chagrin of supporters
everywhere, the playset did not pass LEGO's review, despite recognition,
praise, and visibility from a bunch of websites,
Wired.com, retweets from 3 of the show's actors & Grant Imahara.

Steps have been taken to ensure that this model finally
will be available for all. While not an official LEGO set, this is being
provided as a service to find & source all the bricks required to put this
together, along with the instructions and a few other surprises.
Spend your time building the model, not sourcing and waiting for all the parts to come.
Instead, get a box of parts in the mail, ready to build. Heck, have
the minifigs build it!
