Legos are great, Stargate is great, and now these two great tastes can finally taste great together. Sort of. There is in fact now a set of stackable building blocks with various Stargate themes, but it just so happens that they’re not technically Lego brand. A toy company called Best-Block, which makes a version of Lego-style bricks, has the official Stargate license and has been manufacturing a variety of different sets.
The Stargate SG-1 Earth set alone contains 900 pieces and only retails for around forty bucks. There’s also Stargate Atlantis Daedelus (230 pieces), Stargate SG-1 Death Glider Attack (250 pieces, including Anubis, a death glider, and a tower), and Jaffa Vs. SG-1 (750 pieces) sets.
On the front of the Best-Block boxes they say, “works with other brands,” and they look like you’ll be able to integrate your actual Legos into the mix. You can mount your Sphinx and pyramid models and let all your other little Lego dudes get in on the action. Imagine what you could do if you bring out your Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter collections. Think of the nerdy crossover possibilities.
From the look of things, the Stargate Best-Blocks only seem to be available via the Sears Canada website, which apparently won’t deliver to the U.S.. Doesn’t that whole set of circumstances seem a little strange? I’ll bet you could track them down if you dedicate yourself to the search. Surely you’ll be able to find them on eBay, or through some vendor on Amazon, before too long.
