Who are the MacGyver kids?
As a reminder, the Children of MacGyver Association has made it its mission to revive this stargate of Stargate SG-1 by building a replica of them in original size, i.e. more than six meters in diameter. The members use an original part of the door that has been used in the filming of episodes of the series for years.
Once done, the replica will be just like the door of the series. Its ring will rotate, its chevrons will be luminous, and its main chevron should be movable and lockable like that of the SGC’s door.
In 2019 the association presented a first version of his door at a convention in London. For this reason the replica decorated with blue chevrons and Pegasian glyphs to look like the gateway to Atlantis. The enthusiasm of the audience and the fans was great at the time and the club was able to reap a lot of positive feedback.
