Not Quite Right

EzyDVD produce some nice stuff, I nearly always wait for their exclusive collectors tins for things like Firefly and Stargate and movies I really like. They also produce some pretty cool collectable box sets of Star Trek so when I saw their very nice looking torpedo casing Star Trek movie collection I pre-ordered as soon as it was available. It finally arrived today – to say I’m disappointed is an understatement. Aside from being broken (half of the magnetic lock is unstuck) it looks nothing like the advertised image.

The shape is all wrong, it should be completely rounded at the ends and the whole thing (sides) should have a rounded shape to it – not just the ends.  Plastic isn’t nice and shiny.  Printing is really bad, although the red on black does show up better in the photo than it does IRL.  The edges don’t meet properly (it has an overbite) and the latch is broken.  It’s “supposed” to be a “replica”….. hrmph!

Judge for yourself… as always, click to enlarge.

Stargate F-302 Replica

This astoundingly wonderful replica of Stargate’s F-302 aircraft is going to impress any Stargate Fan.

Quantum Mechanix’ model F-302 is highly detailed, created from actual CGI files used in Stargate SG1. It is hand painted and comes mounted on a “flight deck” (but is detachable). All regulation markings are included and it comes armed with nose guns and missiles.

The replica is scaled at 1/129th and has a wingspan of 8 inches and measures 4.5 inches from nose to engine exhaust.

You can purchase the F-302 through the QMX Website mid-December.

Stargate Atlantis Cancelled

I feared this day was coming when they first officially announced they were discussing a new series (Stargate Universe). But it still came as a shock to hear today that season 5 will be the last for Stargate Atlantis. They intend to finish the series with a 2 hour TV/DVD movie and have plans for other possible movies in the future.

If you have a problem with this – contact Sci-Fi and MGM and express your thoughts. My recommendation is that it’s wise to be polite and while you may be angry, swearing and throwing threats at them won’t help.
