So is the SG-1 line dead? I can't believe nothing outside the Prior Daniel and Unending/Continuum Teal'c two pack has been announced. It feels like it has been forever since we have had any new Stargate figures. Atlantis series 4 is still a month away (until it is delayed another couple of months. ) We haven't heard of a series 5 yet either. I wonder if Atlantis' cancellation means the line is done as well?
For the most part the SG-1 Line is dead. I am surprised that they didn't try to get a wave of toys for the movies.
Atlantis Wave 4 was slated for 9/15, and then about 3 weeks ago I saw that it had been moved back to 10/29, and now it is slated for 11/26 according to the info over at Diamond Select. At this rate the line will come out after the series is done.
Did the 12" figures actually ever come out either? I don't recall ever seeing a packaged shot of them even. I was trying to remember if they showed them off at Wizard World Philly but can't remember. And I didn't take any pictures if they were there.
They are still showing on Pre-Order, but I can't imagine that there has been a lot of demand for these things. This is a wave that I was happy to pass on.
I think with SG-1 cancelled and now Atlantis headed in the same direction it might be hard for them to generate any ongoing interest in the line. It's a shame, though, because SG-1 had 10 years over which it seems like it could have built a line and following with toy collectors yet they only came on towards the end.
If they'd done a 4" line or 12" line (earlier) I'd probably have been involved in it but didn't want to jump in on a new scale, plus cost, I was already spending my collecting money elsewhere.
I would love to have more toys from this line, but I am also happy it appears to be done. I was spending too much on figures to make customs of the toys to fill my desire to have as many different figures as possible. Especially with the cancellation it made my desire to get an army of Wraith Drones non existant. That is cash that I can put towards other things.
