I wish they still used their helmet. I don't care if they're impractical! They look groovy!

I find it hilarious that the Jaffa helmets in the movie were sleek and kind of slid away and disappeared when they were removed, but the ones in the series just kind of went "KA-CHUNK!" and movied almost out of the way.  I guess Apophis's budget wasn't as high as Ra's... Don't mind me, I just watched the movie and 2 hour pilot back to back the other day. Oh, and I can't seem to get the Faze's link working...

Nasty Pasty: Two figures!! OMFG KREE!!  eek

Ranadok: Don't forget, the guards in the movie weren't Jaffa, they were Goa'uld who just chose to serve Ra like Jaffa, so they were probably spoiled more than Jaffa would be with cool-killer-foldaway-action helmets!  big grin
And the website is comet-miniatures.com, search for Stargate on it.

Oh did anybody hear that there is apparently a Stargate Sg-1 Ride? Apparently its a roller coaster wormhole trip.

That minatures set looks cool, but to be perfect it really needs a minature Richard Dean Anderson, with a teeny tiny machine gun you can use to blaze away at the Jaffa figures whilst yelling a neverending stream of one-liners.

Been there, done that...

My wargames club ran a stargate game last year, I knocked up a stargate and dhd:

Sorry I can't get a better photo (It looks better up close and in better lighting I swear!), the stargate is in the house of the guy in the picture, along with all the figures of jaffa, the sg team and some topless hotties with Zat pistols.

Next year will be stargate atlantis, heres a couple of Richard Dean Anderson-esque minis I've been roped into painting up for it:

Just saw stargate this afternoon, a weird and funny racing episode, filled with futurama-style alien adverts, there is the odd bit of humour in there...

Well, thanks to our buddy the internet I was able to watch Atlantis (probably years before it will be broadcasted here)... all the episodes one after another... after the huge Atlantis dose I have to say that I really like it! Every show after it reaches a certein amount of episodes become tedious, including SG-1, a show I used to watch regularly (and for some reason also my dad) until I lost interest. It has a fresh feeling about it although the familiar themes, and the best thing of all that they deal or refer to the larger story every single episode, which is great.

I mentioned this earlier in the thread:

What do you guys think would be cool ideas for a Stargate videogame?

I could picture an awesome 1st-Person-Shooter where youre a member of an SG-Team going off-world for missions.

That would kick so much ass.

That would be pretty cool. I know that there is a mod for Half-life 2 in the works that is trying to be just that, but who knows how successful it will be.  There is also a mod for the first Half-Life that has a Stargate-themed multiplayer, but I haven't tried it yet.

There apparently is an FPS/single & multiplayer game (SG-1 based) in development by a Sydney developer called Perception (Thunderboats and Top Down Racer, I've never heard of them either) and publishers JoWooD, apparently for PS2, XBox and PC!
August 2005 they say, apparently they had trouble getting the license, that's why it took so long.

Interview here.

I've just watched the 14th episode of Stargate: Atlantis. While it was mainly on the "more talking, less action" side, and the obscure "something suddenly appears out of space to save our heros in the last second" beginning, I liked the twist in the end (which I didn't see in advance). What can I say, this show got better and better since it got started and now it is remaining at the high bar it established for itself. If they cancel this show, I will lose all faith in the American enterteinment industry.

It's already been renewed for a second season. And SG-1 for a ninth, meaning it will equal the X-Files as the all-time longest running sci-fi show.

Very Interesting.  I thought that SG-1 was done after this season, now they've renewed it for another!  That works for me, it's still a pretty good show.  I don't think Richard Dan Anderson will be around much though.  I wonder who will fill in?

G'buh?  I thought episode 10 was the last one until mid-January.  Do you have super-insider-kung-fu connections? Did it air early and I missed something?  Does whatever applied to Atlantis apply to SG1 as well? I must know!

Atlantis has been pretty good, though I think it is lacking a certain something. I can't put my finger on it, but it seems to be... incomplete.  I think it is (for the moment) a bit too similar to SG1. That isn't really that bad, I though SG1 was very standard sci-fi itself for the first season or so, so it doesn't mean anything.

It needs some kickass alien allies like SG-1's Asgard.
(unless they get some in episodes I haven't seen yet)

I think the show would absolutely suck if good ol Jack wasnt around anymore. He really brings out the best the show has to offer. I was very sad when he was promoted and doesnt go on missions anymore, but losing his character permanently would be suicide for the show.

Yes, I got connections... connections to the internet.
episodes are airing on one of the Sky channels if I am not wrong (maybe sky one). No one even heard of the show here!

On the subject of RDA:

I think the other actors on the show aren't given enough credit. Yes, the show would lose a lot if Jack left, but I think the rest of the cast would be strong enough to carry on. I think the show's already taken a hit by losing Hammond, though.


On the subject of Atlantis:

I think it's off to a strong start. My biggest gripe would be that they haven't explored Atlantis itself enough, but they've got plenty of time to remedy that.

It's actually one of the few shows whose new episodes I watch weekly at the moment (aside from SG-1, The Simpsons, and probably Enterprise and Scrubs in the new year).

Oh, and also I think that Atlantis is still airing in the States every so often (in the UK, we've only just passed the episode where
, and I know there's at least one episode in the States ("Home" ) which has aired already).

Ah, I see Atlantis had their very own "Gatekeeper" type episode.
It was still good though.

I think Sky One are enjoying their ability to show the new episodes - the introducer last night touted it as the "world premiere" of the episode.  smile

I also heard that Ben Browder will be joining SG1 (the show, not necessarily the team) (Link) as a regular cast member in season nine.  I've never heard of him before, but a google search reveals him to look a lot like Dr. Jackson. I was just thinking the other day that SG1 is running low on core cast members, but I don't know if it is a good idea to add a completely new character this late in a show's run. Eh, we'll see how it works out.

I thought it looked like him, but I don't think it was. I can't remember the name of the character, but  there are no Dan Castellanetas listed as guest starring on Atlantis on either IMDB or TVtome. It's too bad, though...

Well it's official, January 21st. New episodes of Atlantis and SG-1 on Scifi Channel. Judging by the first half of both seasons, I can't wait for either.
