SUPER-8-The-Argus-Cube-Prop-Replica-Quantum-Mechanix

This is the Quantum Mechanix (QMx) prop replica of the Argus Cube as seen in J.J. Abrams’ Super 8.

The Argus Cube, so named by the scientist studying the only alien ever to be captured alive, is a biomechanical miracle. Each cube is an organic magnet, capable of reassembling itself on an atomic level to fit almost any purpose.

The cubes are the building blocks of the Super 8 Alien’s spaceship. Essentially indestructible, thousands of cubes were recovered when the ship crashed on earth in the 1950’s. Scientists studying the cubes couldn’t determine their function until they applied an electrical charge that caused the cubes to momentarily form a part of the ship.

Features of this prop replica:

  1. Produced using the 3-D solid model files used to create the screen-used props
  2. Represents an exact replica of the Argus Cube in “passive mode”
  3. With a polystone core, the exterior of the cube is plated with a smooth pearlescent coating, perfectly replicating the semi-organic, semi-metallic finish of the hero prop.

Limited Edition 2009 STAR TREK USS Enterprise (Quantum Mechanix)

This is QMx’s limited commemorative edition replica of the U.S.S. Enterprise 1701 based on the ship in J.J. Abrams’ 2009 film Star Trek.

Created by Quantum Mechanix using the original digital effects files, these were limited to only 5,000 pieces and are now a highly sought after rare Star Trek collectible.

Measuring 8.5 inches long, this Enterpirse 1701 replica is cast in sold metal, incorporates chrome, and utilizes textured steel and pewter to create the perfect finish. There’s no plastic on this baby.

Each replica has an official QMx Certificate of Authenticity.

It’s a rare opportunity when one of these comes along for sale these days, let alone when it comes along still brand new. As I write this post there’s only one available that I’m aware of. It’s new and it’s via a vendor on Ebay. The asking price is $399.99. The image below is the one in question:

FIREFLY Little Damn Heroes Serenity Maquette (QMx)

This is a Quantum Mechanix manufactured statue of Serenity, the Firefly-class transport from Joss Whedon’s excellent sci-fi series Firefly.

Crafted of polystone, this hand painted statue matches the Firefly TV series version of the vessel in every detail having been built from the show’s actual CG files.

It’s sized at 1:400 scale (about 8-inches long) and comprises dozens of parts, some as small as a millimeter!

Dubbed the “9th Big Damn Hero” by Joss Whedon, this Little Damn Heroes Serenity Maquette makes a terrific addition to every damn collection!
