Here's a quick little project I knocked out this weekend. I was home sick about a month ago, and without the energy to venture further than the edge of my bed, I did what I always do in these types of situations; search the seedy underbelly of the internet for horrifically depraved furry porn and poorly written fanfictions.
I came across a site selling, among other things
, Stargate props and replicas
(some of you may already know I'm an SG1 fan
). Now, while I don't have the kind of disposable income at my mercy to build a miniature replica armory in my closet (don't judge me!), I'd be damned if I didn't at least pick up a set of Replicator Blocks
... hang on, they're not replicas? Screen-used pieces!? YES please!
And about two weeks later, a tightly wrapped manila envelope arrived at my doorstep. So, to better display them, I set up a little shadow box
, along with the nice little certificate of authenticity included in the set. The blocks themselves are light weight, silver-painted, resin pieces, measuring at 1.75" (4.5cm) x 0.85" (2.25cm) x 0.25" (0.5cm). These are the standard flat "1-sided" blocks most commonly used on surfaces where large amounts of blocks were needed and close-up detail wasn't terribly important, meaning the backs of the blocks are completely flat. They're painted, but none of the other details were etched out.
