Firefly – Mal’s Dog Tags

The blueprints were the first item I bought, and this is the latest (but probably not the last). There are many things in between, so don’t worry; there will be more posts.

Serenity, dogtags,

No, it’s not smokes from the future; it’s Mal’s dogtags. Trust Mal to keep his dog tags in a box of cigarillos.

QMx put some attention to the details of the box, and it’s not even the thing you’re buying. You can read the description of the dog tags HERE.

The white area on the edge of the lid gave me pause . . . then I imagined the box would have had a seal, and pulling it off would rip off some of the paper.

Serenity, dogtags,

Much like I am afraid of doing with the clear plastic tab now used to keep the box closed.

Serenity, dogtags,

Unlike most of the other stuff I bought, these do not have a significant role in the show or movie. Actually, I don’t remember seeing dog tags, but I suppose I could have missed them in one of my many, many viewings.

Here’s the other side . . . 

Serenity, dogtags,

I should mention that these are replacements. The original set I received had a casting flaw, and QMx replaced them. These have a couple of very small casting flaws; one which I digitally fixed in the photo, and one at the bottom of the left dog tag. Neither are readily visible by the naked eye, so I’m OK with them.

Anyway, when QMx shipped the replacement set, they also sent me this (no charge).

Serenity, dogtags,

For them who have not seen the series . . . 

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Astute persons might have noticed these doodles, and correctly surmised they hold some significance for me, and perhaps for humanity at large.  

If you click on the doodle, and nothing happens, this is the link it’s supposed to go to:

      I liked the idea . . . a lot of these things are geared toward people who will actually use them at conventions, when they dress up.

      I just like the look of them.

        I know what u mean. And yes cosplayers probably loves them as well but I wouldn’t mind having this at my place just for the beauty of those dog tags.

    Nice! And the button (or pin?) showing Wash playing with one of his dinosaurs is great!
