****...New Force is nearly a month behind everyone else. Makes me glad I didn't order through them.

I have been told to go to hell; well at least I will know everyone there!

Ryan - Did you get enough figures to send away for the Elite Serpent Guard? Have you heard if they are arriving yet?

I sent my UPC codes 2 weeks ago, and I figured that since they were not asking for money, and all they needed was 4 different UPC codes that these should ship quicker than say Stormtrooper Lucas!!!

I checked the tracking and it is indeed en route, which is a big weight off my shoulders.

I ordered half a case. It comes with 1 Black Ops O'Neill, 1 General O'Neill, 1 Colonel O'Neill, 1 Daniel Jackson, and 1 Jaffa Serpant Guard. So once they arrive I'll have enough to get the Red Serpant Guard.

My figures finally arrived down at my parents house today, now I've just got to wait until they are shipped up here to Fort Collins.

And on the Stargate front I've got some really, really bad news:

Stargate SG-1 cancelled, Atlantis renewed

SCI FI Channel confirms SG-1 cancellation

Cooper: SG-1 will go on

I guess there is a bit of silver lining in there, as Atlantis will continue, and SG-1 will probably continue to some degree. But I can't say that lightens the load much. I'm actually quite suprised this had to happen, and I choose to blame Sci-Fi for it.

******* SCI-FI ********!!!!

THIS IS THE STUPIDEST MISTAKE IN THE WORLD.






Good News...

I went to go get my mail today, and guess what I found. Elite Serpent Guard. I am not overly impressed with the painting (especially the skullcap [super bright red]).


I AM JUST SO PISSED OFF AT THE CANCELLATION OF SG-1!!!!!!

DID I SAY ******* SCI-FI ********!!!

I was a little depressed as once I got all my figures opened that they only made one Daniel Jackson but 30 different Jack O'Neills. So I went out purchased a Col. O'Neill and another Daniel Jackson and swapped heads.

Damn it. I think I missed out on my chance to order Series 2 from New Force. I wasnt going to order from them again but when my figures finally arrived they came with an unpainted Jaffa that didn't originally come with it so I decide they really weren't that bad. And not to mention they are a lot cheaper than anywhere else. I waited for awhile because A) My credit card expired this month and I didn't want to have probelms if they charged the order to the old card; and B) I wasn't sure if I was going to use NewForce again. And now they are sold out. BBTS has the set availible still but it is $10 higher and doesn't include the Jaffa Armor Teal'c. :-\

I preordered mine as soon as BBTS put them out.

For future reference so not to have this problem again. You probably can place the order, and if your card expires call them or there should be away to change the Credit Card being billed. I know I have done that with BBTS & EE on PreOrders.

The unpainted figures are good, but I have enough stuff going on that I am passing on that set.

Nice. New Force relisted Series 2 so I was able to pick up the set of 4 plus the exclusive Jaffa Teal'c for $50. Hopefully Series 2 isn't too far off, I'd like to have a complete SG-1 team sooner rather than later. :)

I still haven't heard anything about the variants, does anyone know what the deal with them is?

Any word on when Series 2 is suppose to start hitting. BBTS is still showing September on their site, but since the 1st series was delayed a month I figure this one to be delayed as well.

BBTS has the following on PreOrder. I have placed mine.







The also are doing sales of the following individual figures.





Note no Daniel Jackson in Black Ops single orders.
=============================================

The thing I think is ironic in all of this is that they are coming out with a 3rd series, have hinted at a bunch of different paint variants, and people around the world are excitied about this but they are cancelling the series. The best part is that the 3rd series of toys is slatted to hit just before we get the last 10 episodes of SG-1.

Sorry I am still a little bitter about this whole thing.

Oh I'm still more than aliitle bitter. Escpecially after watching the SG-1 Comic Con panel on Sci-Fi Pulse last night, and hearing some Sci-Fi Exec. tell the fans that SG-1 would go on as long as we want it to, and that it was up to us. 1 month later and they cancel the series. >:(

If you haven't already seen SaveStargateSG1.com, be sure to check it out, and tell all of your friends to as well.

The prototype pictures never show the articulation. They are all better once you get the figure. Right Ryan?

So I finally got my Red Jaffa yesterday, is he not supposed to come with the serpant helmet? If that's the case I'm quite disappointed. I agree the skull capp and the the boots are a bit too vibrant. They seem to have gottne the red on the torso armor pretty close but it is too brite elsewhere. I really hope Series Two starts shipping soon...
