I think there should be a competition where someone can win all of the Stargate and SGA DVDs. That would be soooo cool.:cool:

Anyway, I thought you'd rather have a dart?

If the appropriate deals could be made with the merchandise companies...it would be cool. A lot of them give away small amounts of stuff as promo...

Fandamonium may do that.

I'm assuming that Darren wouldn't impose that sort of restriction on GW's competitions...they'd be open to all...

Probably limited to Region 1 DVD, but anything's possible.

Here's a good competition:
SGA Soundtrack CD.

Good idea, huh

Region 1, thats not fair :(

Darren
October 27th, 2005, 08:32 AM
Well, if the folks we are working with only provide the Region 1 release (because that's what they are currently promoting), we only have the Region 1 release. It would be kind of silly to send that kind of a prize to someone in the Czech Republic.

I'd want a titanium model of Atlantis, and blueprints to go along with it.

Same here :D
Its ironic that they make DVD's with region codes to prevent people from other countries obtaining the same DVD at a lower price or get it before its actual release date in that country, and then they go ahead and make multi-region DVD players, im not complaining though :D

While you're at it, how to make a fully functional ZPM.

DVDs would be cool to win. So would books/companion guides, action figures, signed actor photos, all sorts of things. I have no idea what it takes to set up such contests and get the prizes, so good luck Darren! :)

While you're at it, how to make a fully functional ZPM.I wouldn't mind getting one of the ZPM Props. All we need is someone to sneak onto the set, nick one of 'em (we've seen all three ZPMs in the reactor, so they would have several), and give it out in this competition. That would make one hell of a conversation piece to put on one's mantle... or to try to ransom it off to the US Government... :p

If that's done. make sure it's the COMPLETE season 8 (the entire "Threads", not the edited version ) :p :p

Usually competitions give you one or two seasons. 8 seasons, no, 9 (counting SGA) might be too much for MGM's bean counters ;)

Personally I think we could be offered the following: Sign actor photo, books/companion guides, and action figure. I think DVDs would be a less of a possibility.

November 1st, 2005, 06:46 PM
I'd settle for Seasons Five and Six of SG-1 (the ones I'm missing)... ZPM prop would be cool, too... And of course, to satisfy David, I want the Pegasus Galaxy! :p :D

Convention tickets would be an awesome prize. Though costs maybe a bit of an issue. But then again, if GateWorld could get a Convention sponsor (like Creation Entertainment) than it might work out.

They don't even have to pay for the travel costs, just the tickets are the prize.

One of these has to be the ultimate prize:

Stargate Props (http://www.lightspeedfineart.com/Props.html)


Life sized replica Jaffa Staff from Stargate SG-1
Replica of the Stargate from SG-1. Available in Working :eek: and non working static versions.

Be realistic fellas. A couple of DVDs, novels, figures maybe are easy and affordable.

Set visits? Gateworld is on good terms with TPTB after all!

Nem2k
November 14th, 2005, 02:05 PM
well, come on, this is easy....if we all chip in a little bit of money as an entry fee to the competition, that money can be used to purchase a prize (which will be determined through a poll)

then the winner will win whatever it is that wins the poll....simple enough no? id be willing to throw in £10 which covers the cost of half a DVD box set alone, imagine how much money we'd have if we all did that....we could easily get enough to buy one of those working replica Gates

altho some of the ideas like set visits are also pretty good, i know id want that more than any $40000 prize ;)

Elite Anubis Guard

Well, as the Franchise has at least 2 warehouses full of props from SG-1 (and now SGA), perhaps a small momento? I think most of us have the DVD's or at least tapes/DVD's......and the books are now easily obtained, so how about something a tad special? Just a suggestion.....

Maybe some defunct, no-longer needed authentic prop ( a small one, mind you. the cost for International shipping's a killer sometimes).

Nah, I think we should stop being idiots here. Darren has stated they are doing something in the ways of competitions. It isn't becoming of us to be picky and say daft and stupid things.
