    It's a perfect circle. That's the extent of my knowledge.

    I believe they said it is 22 feet in diameter. Don't qoute me on that, though. I'll have to go back and watch the DVD special features again, but I believe they said 22 feet. It's gonna take a lot to carve an 11 foot Stargate out of foam...........

    22 to 25 ft in diameter. lol one time I was watching Monster House and I was like I should call them and have them put a stargate in my living room with the TV screen in the middle lol and make it so when ever i change the channel it spins and when i quit changing them for a minute it does the chevron lock sound lol. I always wanted a stargate.

    That would be great. I could imagine the iris closing to conceal the tv for like parties and stuff.

    I think the MGM FAQ has the diameter of the gate.

    Holy crap, what a fantastic idea!!

    Now i want my own stargate in my living room!

    I'd like it full size, but of course i know that would be ridiculous... you'd need a special room (like a big hall) just to put it in... but i'd like a real metal stargate with chevrons on it, and one that turns... man that'd be hellish expensive...... i want!

    Since I'm planning to design my own house, that I'll build when I move to the states, I think I'm gonna have a Stargate instead of a regular door.

    Good idea, but then you'll have to leave the Iris open a bit for the mail-man.
