Here is a picture of the back of the packaging for series 2.



But the best part of this is...



It appears that they are actually going to make the Desert Combat Carter...she was a display piece at one of the earlier conventions in 2006 (as was a Teal'c, O'Neil, & Jackson piece). So it looks like they finally are starting to make pieces fans want.

I wonder when/where/how the Desert Carter will be availible? It's a good choice of a figure for sure, I just hope it isn't that hard to get.

Has anyone received their sets yet. I am still waiting on AFX (never doing business with them again) for my stuff. Going to go through NewForce or BBTS going forward. This is ridiculous how long this is taking.

SG update
January 10, 2007 | 9:01 PM | newforce1

Our truck of SG1 series 2 should arrive Thursday. We hope to have all preorders shipped by Monday (15th). We have added wave 3 (both sets and cases with free pre production figure), Replicator Carter and the "ASCENSION" DANIEL & ANUBIS ACTION FIGURE 2-PACK presales to the SG Catalog.



This is from New Force the other day. They charged my card and I got a tracking number so it should be here soon. I know I said I wasn't going back but they came through in the end for Series 1. I also went ahead and pre-ordered Series 3, as well as RepliCarter, and the Daniel/Anubis 2-Pack.

If you look at the paperwork that come with series 2 it is for the mail-a-way Elite Serpent guard. The problem is that the expiration date is 12/31/2006.

So I e-mailed them asking what was going on with the promotion since one aspect says while supplies last, but the other says it expires on 12/31/2006. Especially since Series 2 didn't come out until after the promotion ended.

I was informed that it has been extended to the While Supplies Last due to the shipping delays. I am excited since I have another 4 UPC's to mail in.

Just got notification that the my SG-1 Stuff is shipping from AFX. Of course the misses saw it in our on-line banking statement and I had to fess up. At least if it had been a couple more days it was possible it would have been on page 2 and she never looks at page 2.

Oh well...at least I am getting my figures finally.

So I finally got time to crack open my case and get everything set! Damn that took too long. Thankfully there is 3 months before I have to do that again.

I have the following spare Stargate pieces if anyone is interested...

1 - Jackson
3 - O'Neill
5 - Teal'c

No cost...just want to get rid of them.

Finally got everything opened and on display...



Whole set of everything.



This shows the 2 customs of Teal'c that I made. All I did was swap the heads from the Black Ops with the regular version.



This shows the regular version of the the Elite Serpent Guard and the the custom Teal'c. I removed the head from the regular version and put a head from Teal'c Serpent guard on it. I then used an extra Serpent Guard helmet and put that on the headless Teal'c to make another serpent guard.

I found this while reading Gateworld.

They have a link to a web site that shows 75 pictures of the Stargate Atlantis Series 1 and Stargate SG-1 Series 3 figures.

Here is the Link


Also Gateworld is reporting that there was a problem with the pieces of the gate sent with Samantha Carter. That story can be found here.

Snippit of the story about the Carter Piece...
       Apparently, there has been some problem with the Stargate and ramp pieces previously released.
       Diamond Select's Web site has info on a replacement offer for those who received the wrong piece
       of the gate with the Series 2 Samantha Carter figure.

I went to DS's web site and found nothing about it. What I discovered with the Carter pieces is that the pegs to support the Stargate on the stand are too big for the holes. I just took a drill and made the holes a little bit bigger and it worked just fine for me. I believe I used an 1/8th size drill bit and I just twisted it by hand a couple times.

I had the same problem. I pressed really hard and then they fit in. :)

The new Atlantis figures look pretty snazzy. I think they got a pretty good likeness of Weir and Sheppard. I think I may need to start buying full cases of the figures from New Force, as opposed to the half cases. I really would like extras for customizing.

The first gate I put together I snapped one of the pegs off in the gate with a piece of the support. I realized the problem and thats when I got the drill stuff out. It sucks, but is rather eay to fix yourself.

They made 3 Teal'c figures. When I am done with my customs I will have 11 Teal'c figures.

Want some of my extra parts?

For anyone that is looking to get their replacement part for Samantha Carter, here is the link over to Diamond Select for the information about getting your piece.
