Grab Bag O' Geekiness  
So, lyssie inspired me to pull my SG-1 toys out of their packaging and actually set up the Stargate. (not all of them, just enough to complete the Gate and ramp, I have a few variants as well) I felt quite a bit like Felger (OMG! FELGER!) They're not very dynamic, sorry. I had to put them up and then take them down before the rugrat came home, but for those who want to see the first two groups of SG-1 figures and the Gate, they're under the cut.

There's no question that Teal'c is the best likeness. Besides, he has knees! (Daniel and Jack don't. So I couldn't manage to pose them on the ramp). But the detail is pretty impressive, especially all the little accessories. Thor comes with three Replicator bugs and a tiny seashell-looking communicator thing! I'm not sure why they gave Sam a gun and Jack a zat, since Sam's carried a zat as her sidearm for quite some time now, but whatever.

The Jaffa comes with a pretty cool Serpent mask, but you have to pop off the guy's head to put it on, and I'm not brave enough. What if it won't go back on?

I have an extra Jaffa which I'm seriously considering repainting gold to make him into Apophis. Because yes, I have plenty of space for action figures. NOT. And I just know if I go down that route, I'm going to start customizing the ones I want and I have no time or space for them. (Baal! In that purple-white imperial outfit from Off the Grid, mmm. yes. Or a miniature Martouf, in Tok'ra desert camo!)

And I ordered Series Three, even though I HAVE Farscape figures somewhere in the garage and could probably just use my Aeryn and Crichton figs. I'm such a frelling completist, it's ridiculous.


JR Bourne was on 24 and I did not know! Flist, you are all fired! Fortunately the torrent was still active and I have it now. (And yes, I know Shanks is going to be on it, that's why I was looking at IMDB in the first place).


I have done hardly any writing, BUT I have been a very good fangirl in the swapping videos department. To any of my sources who wander here, be assured YOU ARE LOVED, and I'm paying it forward just as fast as I can. *g*

Cool pics. They do look very detailed. And fun to play with. :)

yes, they are. The little zats are amazingly cute. And Sam comes with a long crystal for fixing the hyperdrive or something. At least that's what I hope it's for...

Wheee! Daniel is holding his glasses! *snerks*

And now I want a Martouf action figure complete with super stoopid looking desert hood getup that he still manages to look hot in :P

And JR Bourne on 24! I think I may have to watch when it finally makes it here :D
lizardbeth: Marty Squeelizardbeth_j on April 11th, 2007 11:49 pm (UTC)
YES! THE HAT! that would make it just perfect! :D

OMG, now I have to make one! (you are a bad, bad enabler!)

*ponders* There needs to be a Martouf. Sam needs someone to molest. since there is no Kara or Anders figure to do it for us.

And there should be a Jacob! Because we need snarky!Dad to glare at everyone.
lizardbeth: Martouf-Samlizardbeth_j on April 11th, 2007 11:56 pm (UTC)
I'm more and more tempted by Martouf all the time. Poor Sam, all lonely.... Hm, I have an extra Jack-in-t-shirt, I'm sure I could do something with that. The RDA likeness isn't so great that I can't pretend it isn't someone else, especially in Tok'ra gear with pretty blue eyes...

Jacob! would also be awesome. If, more difficult.

Either that, or a Doc Franklin. Because I'm currently wanting to ship Sam/Doc Franklin.

Repaint Jack! both of them.
lizardbeth: Sinclairlizardbeth_j on April 12th, 2007 01:47 am (UTC)
I'm embarrassed to admit, but I'm pretty sure I have an actual Franklin, although he'd be only 6" tall, so a bit short for Sam.

Sam/Stephen? *blinks* okay...

I have seen some B5 figures (I want a Susan, omg), but yes, too small. sigh.

My brain works in strange ways while staring at B5 on my tv.

I can't even remember what the Ivanova looks like. I do remember she came with a special green-teal uniform though - it was odd. All my B5 figures have been in a box a LO0ONG time.

heh. It's not like I can't see it -- thinking about it, he probably is one of the more likely people that Sam might go for on B5. But until I was writing something that might bring them into proximity I don't think I'd have ever thought about it.

I am the crossover queen, baby. Anyone, anywhere, anytime. ;)
lizardbeth: Anders - Lee - Kara who?lizardbeth_j on April 12th, 2007 04:34 am (UTC)
heh. This is true. I have to get a plot and a reasonable way to put them together -- you just... do it. which is awesome. *G*

Wow , action figures

Pretty cool

And fun! *g*
