    Default Stargate merchandise - share your ideas here

    So the question is in the title. What would you like to get as a Stargate merchandise?

    1. Fridge magnets : Jaffa symbols, glyphs, Army patches, chevrons (with or without gate elements for the 3 shows)
    2. Book shelf holder : like Egyptian design, half of the stargate
    3. Decorations : mini statues like MALP, DHD, jumper, ZPM, replicator, ships minatures, KINOs
    4. Cookie cutter forms : replicator block, Jaffa symbols, glyphs
    5. Bookmarks, book covers
    6. Garden statues : like a bigger Stargate for ponds, or smaller one for aquariums
    7. Christmas decorations

    So just think about what would you spend money on and what was missing in the last. Maybe some of this can be made nowadays by a 3d printer or DIY.

    I always wanted to see a book about the collected concept arts for the SG shows. Joe still has got such new ones what I haven't seen before.

    Anything that could be used for Airsoft/Cosplay. Such as costume/uniform items etc.

    I have imained how cool it would be to have Christmas lights where lots of little acivated stargate would be on the tree and the blue lights would be hidden between the two edges of the activated wormhole.

    Or they could restart the action figures with Universe or more Atlantis characters.

    Hopefully we will see more if the franchise is ever restarted... Until that time we have to do it by ourselves.

    Replica weapons and props.

    Reasonably priced so I may add to my T.E.R., Sodan staff and multitude on P90'ties.

    It would be funny to see replicator block as printable objects or even as LEGO elements. Then everybody could build their favorite replicator from pieces like a puzzle.

    It's unlikely that Lego would license Stargate.
    They apparently have a policy in place which prohibits military style sets -- as in reflecting real life military which Stargate does.

    There are 2 people that I know of, which have entered models for Lego's consideration. However, the selection process is long and quite difficult, so it's therefore very unlikely we will ever see anything Stargate licensed by Lego.

    However, it doesn't stop anyone from creating something with Lego blocks themselves of course.

    They are off a horrible quality and best be ignored at all costs.
    To this day I've never received a replacement block to finish my Wraith Dart.

    Lego, on the other hand, send me a replacement block a week after I request it.

    Here's what a quick search on Etsy turned up -- all non-licensed obviously so legality is questionable depending what MGM's policy is on it (Disney would have send out a cease-and-desist letter at the first sign of copying).

    I have directly tried to not comment the quality of them, but at least they were trying. I was even surprised that a Wraith Dart exists while no Pegasus galaxy stargate or jumper or anything else from SG:A.

    Somehow MGM was always finding cheap solution and they hide sligthly amateurish companies to provide better quality merchandise products. I mean even if they have even invested millions of dollars into Stargate : Worlds, but that was also made by a small studio. Then the same happened with the comics. Simply we have not been lucky. The whole franchise could have been even stronger if it could have been supported by a bit more professional treatment on merchandise level.

    So many wasted costumes and props. They should have collecte these and make a permanent Stargate exhibition in Vancouver. There have shot so many shows (like BSG, Eureka, Once upon a time, Travelers, Dark matter) in this city that I am sure it could have been a great tourist attraction.
