There is a lot of actions figures featuring Summer Glau as River Tam in Firefly or in Serenity; here's a non-exaustive list and the location where you can find them.

Pictures from the same collections and more can be found in the gallery : Creativity Section - Action Figures

River Tam - Big Damn Heroes Animated Maquette #1 at Quantum Mechanix

River Tam - Big Damn Heroes Animated Maquette

Quote
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.

QMx has 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. River measures 6" tall by 6" wide without the base. The base measures 5" x 7" x 1".

The River Tam Big Damn Heroes Animated Maquette is being offered in an edition of 1,500 for just $69.95.

River Tam - Big Damn Heroes Animated Maquette #5 at Quantum Mechanix

River Tam - Big Damn Heroes Animated Maquette

Quote
She Can Kill You With Her Brain ...

... but axes are much more fun! She's our brilliant, beautiful, but deadly teenager: River Tam – the psychic savant of Serenity – who kicks butt in hand-to-hand combat and poses a serious danger to just about everyone, including herself.

River is the fifth animated maquette in our best-selling series of Little Damn Heroes™. Standing 4.5 inches tall, our luxuriantly maned, sculpted resin maquette smiles impishly while holding a bloody Reaver axe and sword. All in a day's work for Dr. Tam's little sister.

Before you get lost in her limpid brown eyes, remember that with a firearm, she's a better shot than any of us – with her eyes closed.

Offered in an edition of 1,000, each numbered River animated maquette is priced at just $39.95. Our naughty girl won't be around long, so act fast – and remember to duck!

River Tam in Serenity PVC Set at Dark Horse

River Tam in Serenity PVC Set

Quote
Serenity fans rejoice! The master sculptors at Gentle Giant Studios have taken full-size 3-D digital scans of the main actors from Joss Whedon's blockbuster film Serenity and created a fabulous, realistically detailed PVC set of the favorite three crew members. This process has allowed us to achieve an unprecedented level of accurate detail, both in terms of the distinctive likenesses and the accessories and costumes. Since you can't get these actors to come visit you at home and sit on your bookshelf or computer, this is probably the next best thing!

Featuring Jayne (4" tall), Mal (3.9" tall), and River (3.45" tall), Packaged in deluxe, full-color window box
Price: $17.99

River Triumphant Statue at Diamond Select Toys

River Triumphant Statue

Quote
From the climactic final battle comes this latest Serenity release...the River Triumphant statue! She may be a psychotic killing machine, but River Tam can do some serious damage...especially against an army of Reavers! Standing seven inches tall, this Michael Norman sculpt is in-scale with past action figure releases to create the ultimate Serenity display.
Price: $99.00

Quote
Waiting for me when I got home today was my "River Triumphant" statue from Diamond Select Toys. One of only 1,000 (#16!), this statue was sculpted by Michael Norman. Here's the lowdown.

Interview with Michael Leavey, Diamond Select Toys's Marketing and Sales Supervisor, about River Triumphant Statue launch back in June 2007.



How did the “River Triumphant” statue come about?
Quote
"We always wanted to do more action figures but the movie box office and DVD sales were not where the buyers wanted to see them, so we had to come up with another way for fans to fill out their action figure collections if they wanted to. The one most obviously missing was River!"

Was it sculpted solely from screen shots? Who did the sculpt?
Quote
"We used a digital scan that was done for the movie's visual effects and lots of screen shots to get the outfit details as accurate as possible. Michael Norman did the sculpt."

How long does it take to create these statues, from inception to final product?
Quote
"It can take as long as 9 months from idea to store shelves."

How much involvement (if any) does Joss Whedon have on these projects? What about Summer Glau?
Quote
"Officially Joss has no involvement BUT we keep in touch with him and show him what we are working on. At SDCC last year we asked what he thought about the idea and he loved it – in fact when we debuted the piece he said, 'My life is complete, except for that other stuff I need to do.'"

“River Triumphant” stayed on your top ten preorders list almost since it was announced. Have orders been what you expected?
Quote
"They have been solid. Not as high as we expected, but we think when people see the piece in person that will sell it!"

That's the hardest thing to get, just like in a drawing as you said.

Funny thing is that Quantum mechanix first maquette was not Summer look-alike and had a stern look, so that they decided to make another one with a cute look, almost a cartoonish River.

I said that in relation with the project actually. Even professionals have a hard time do it right, let alone non-professionals. I'm optimistic through, you can do it I think.

Some of these actions figures have been published a few years ago and are sold out but one can find them online (ebay or amazon).

I'm afraid you'll have to wait untill i make a similar thread for TSCC action figures to have your answer.

I have listed only professional products but fans have also created actions figures; here's a good one.

Crafted River Tam by Silvana Kathryn

River Tam Custom Action Figures

I am an active member of a craft website...Last week I signed up for a round of the Whedonverse Swap. If you don't get the reference than you must have been living under a rock for the last 15 years and are obviously not interested in awesomocity should look up Joss Whedon.

This is the second round of this swap I have participated in. Last round I made the River Tam [a character from the much loved and sadly missed tv series Firefly] doll pictured above. She turned out AMAZING and I am so surprised at myself for not having posted about her here. Anyhow, now proceeds my raving squee of fangirldom!

StatueFan, a blog specialised on collectibles, has made a full review of the River Tam - Big Damn Heroes Animated Maquette #1 from Quantum Mechanix; also included lots of additional pics.

Here's an excerpt from the article :

Quote
Despite being an animated maquette not based on Summer Glau, the likeness is still exceptional. River’s pose, weaponry and clothing are all recreated very accurately and the paint style does a great job of capturing the “gritty” reality of Firefly.


River Tam - Big Damn Heroes Animated Maquette
Quote
Conclusion
The River Tam – Big Damn Heroes Animated Maquette is a must own for Firefly fans. Get it now. It is very inexpensive, selling for as little as $52 from some online retailers and to be honest, with the lack of quality Firefly products available, there is no reason not to own this unless you are unwilling to live with the fact it isn’t sculpted as Summer Glau. Aside from some really high end and overpriced Firefly ship and vehicle replicas, there exist relatively few quality pieces from the Firefly verse. This one isn’t perfect, but until someone decides to make some larger scale statues with sculpts based on actors who play the characters, this will have to do.

A dedicated Firefly fan decided to recreate River's clothes from 'Objects in Space'

Quote (Jennifer)
Hello everyone! I've been wanting to do River Tam's dress from 'Objects in Space' for a while now and after literally two years of searching for a suitable dress I came up with nothing, so I decided to handpaint the costume myself. I decided to do this because I found a near perfect vest of hers and the TUK boots she wears (well not the exact ones, but close enough). I just wanted to post up my progress here since I'm pretty happy with how it's turning out.


Here's the original dress :

And here are Jennifer made clothes; looks shiny biggrin

Since Jennifer is both dedicated and skilled, here's others pictures of her in various River Tam costumes.
