The LEGO Ideas Stargate project has just passed the halfway milestone of 5k votes. Join me and get to know Captain Mutant the creator and understand a bit more about his project, the challenges of the LEGO build and maybe a little more of the Stargate universe for any noobs 🙂
I’m a massive fan of Stargate – well sci-fi in general, but Stargate is my second favourite after Star Trek. This LEGO Ideas project reflects the primary part of the show, the Stargate itself. This one is the original ring found on earth and set up in the Cheyenne Mountain complex in the original 1994 Movie.
In this interview with Captain Mutant, we discuss his inspiration, the challenges of the build and talk a bit outside of this build and into the broader Stargate Universe – this includes the massive Daedalus ship!

Introduction to this LEGO Ideas project
Stargate was a science-fiction phenomenon, launched in 1994 with a summer blockbuster movie, and followed in 1997 with the long-running TV series Stargate SG-1. Spin-off shows Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe built on the extensive mythology, along with a couple of TV movies, animated series, and web series.
To mark the forthcoming 25th anniversary of the start of the first TV show, I’ve created this minifig-scaled display piece, composed of the Stargate itself, along with the famous gangway located in the secret complex inside Cheyenne Mountain…
Included with this set are six minifgures representing Colonel Jack O’Neill, Captain Samantha Carter, Teal’c, and Dr Daniel Jackson. The other two are Jaffa warriors, holding brick-built staff weapons. six minifigs for 850 pieces, that’s a ratio of 142:1 which is much higher than the LEGO Ideas Tron Legacy set which stood at 77:1 (3 figs for 230 parts) – this is definitely not a minifig-only submission 🙂
