I went searching on eBay for this patch, or anything 'verse-y, and found this cool little dragon patch.

I ordered 6 of them for my "Fool Me Twice" Alliance uniforms.

I also found these fire-breathing dragon Boy Scout patrol patches
http://www.ebay.com/itm/350280184945?ss ... 1423.l2649
and thought it was an awesome Independents' patch.

Mike, I ordered and got the fire-breathing patch, real nice! The other dragon patch, is ordered and coming.
Thanks for the links, and now I will have a "Fool Me Twice" patch coming, cool!

Oh, you patch-Companion, you!

I'm going to put velcro on my Alliance uniforms so that I can have
one unit with the lightning-and-cogwheel patch,
and another unit with the dragon patch.

I bought a bunch more of the fire-breathing dragon patches to use on some Independent's gear.
I searched that same seller and found phoenix, griffon and crab patches I liked.
I'll be putting them in a framed display like this:

I figure I have as much right as anyone to grow the EU Firefly 'verse, since nothing official is going on.

I like your way of thinking! :mrgreen:

I will have to get the other patches. You just had to get me to spend more money. :D

Where did you get the different size 12th Cav patches!!!
I would also love one of those browncoat flags - the subdued one for my uniform when I deploy - any leads on the seller?

QMx was only selling the one size I thought - I have 2 of them, but they are the ones on the right (your right). I guess I missed the earlier ones......

Thanks for the link.

QMx originally released the small 12th Cav patches around the time they first released the Cerberus T-shirt with the 12th Cav emblem on the back.
I wrote a product review for their website saying that they were nicely detailed
but were too subdued (compared to the T-shirt emblem) and didn't impress as I felt they should.
I think QMx intended for the patches to be worn on baseball caps more than as a sleeve patch.
After a period of time
(the sale of the first production run, I assume)
QMx re-released the 12th Cav patch in the larger size.
As a customer I appreciated that they had listened to the customer
(and I'm also assuming that I wasn't the only person to express disappointment with the patch)
and the changed the patch to more reflect the vibrant colors of the emblem as seen on the T-shirt.
I changed my review on the QMx site to reflect my opinion that the larger patch was more eye-catching.

I also liked the option of the smaller patch, but QMx only seems to be willing to hold inventories of a single item.
And if they are only going to carry one 12th Cav patch, it should be the brighter, larger one.

I missed the larger one, I just forgot. That is the way it goes.
