River Kicks Ass

Joss Whedon is known for the post-modern deconstruction of myth: for genre bending that mixes humor, horror, sci-fi and drama to great effect; and for some of the cleverest dialog in entertainment. But above all, Joss is best known for creating babes who kick ass. And no Whedonverse character kicks more ass than River Tam of the TV series Firefly and the movie Serenity.

We at QMx have dedicated our first Big Damn Heroes animated maquette to her awesomeness.

River is posed in the midst of battle with the Reavers, displaying a dancer's grace with a look (and a copious spattering of her enemies' blood) that shows she means business. Great pains were taken to study both River's prop sword and axe as well as her dress and boots, all of which are re-created in precise detail.

Even the uniquely sculpted, highly detailed base evokes the atmosphere of Whedon's Firefly and Serenity Verse, complementing the style and stance of River herself.

Each River Tam maquette is cast in polystone resin and hand painted, reflecting the high standards you've come to expect from a QMx maquette.

The River Tam Big Damn Heroes Animated Maquette is being offered in an edition of 1,500.

Big Damn Heroes

The Big Damn Heroes line of maquettes feature more mature animé-style designs, including realistic wardrobe, props and settings, as well as thematically matched, detailed bases.

Significantly larger than our best-selling Little Damn Heroes, the typical LDH maquette is less than 4.5 inches tall (11.43 cm) while the BDH maquettes start at more than 6 inches tall (15.24 cm). The new line takes a more serious approach to its subject matter, offering a sexier, more heroic version.
