Stargate was a science-fiction phenomenon, launched in 1994 with a summer blockbuster movie, and followed in 1997 with the long-running TV series Stargate SG-1. Spin-off shows Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe built on the extensive mythology, along with a couple of TV movies, animated series, and web series.
To mark the forthcoming 25th anniversary of the start of the first TV show, I’ve created this minifig-scaled display piece, composed of the Stargate itself, along with the famous gangway located in the secret complex inside Cheyenne Mountain…
Included with this set are six minifgures representing Colonel Jack O’Neill, Captain Samantha Carter, Teal’c, and Dr Daniel Jackson, each holding a piece of equipment that represents them well. The other two are Jaffa warriors, holding brick-built staff weapons. six minifigs for 850 pieces, that's a ratio of 142:1 which is much higher than the LEGO Ideas Tron Legacy set which stood at 77:1 (3 figs for 230 parts) - this is definitely not a minifig-only submission :)
I've also included a Naquadah generator and Sam's cat, Schrödinger.
The construction of the circular gate is quite unique, making use of a specific recent piece to hold it all together. To show that the concept works in real life, all the images are actual photographs, not digital renders.
To celebrate reaching 5,000 supporters, I'm now including the M.A.L.P. (Mobile Analytic Laboratory Probe), and I found a way to keep it stationary on a sloping ramp (no, it's not glued there!).
Made up of around 900 pieces, this Stargate model would be a fun, original and affordable way to celebrate the show, and would take pride of place on any fan’s desk or shelf.
Dial the gate, chevron seven is locked, and see you on the other side!
