Heathside welcomes Stargate line

Published on: 1st September 2023

The Stargate collection is produced through a licence agreement with MGM consumer products and will include die cast ships, prop replicas and figures.

Heathside Trading has established an agreement with MGM to become a licensee for Stargate, in a deal brokered by Rocket Licensing. The licensed line, which will launch from spring 2024 through selected retail partners, as well as direct-to-consumer through MasterReplicas.com, will include die-cast ships, prop replicas and figures based on the Stargate library. This includes the original film, Stargate The Ark Of Truth, Stargate Continuum, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Origins, Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Universe.

Darren Epstein from Heathside commented: ‘’We are so thrilled to be working with MGM and Rocket on this series of prop replicas, ships and die cast. As big fans of the films and TV series, we are excited to offer these fantastic new ranges of product under our Master Replicas and Khadou brands.”

Robert Marick, Head of MGM Consumer Products said, “The team at Heathside is known for its high quality collectibles and the line they are releasing for Stargate is sure to delight fans of the franchise. Through this collaboration, we are continuing to offer additional ways for fans to enjoy Stargate well beyond the content on screen.”

Rather than releasing all the ships in one go, Heathside Trading, through Master Replicas, will be making a curated selection of vehicles, prop replicas and figures available over the course of the licence. This will allow fans to add to the continuance of their collections. with selected resellers who will be making stock available on a limited basis online.

Since its introduction in 1997, Stargate has become a cultural phenomenon, capturing the imaginations of sci-fi lovers and inspiring legions of fans around the world. The franchise includes three TV series, three films, an animated series and a web series. In addition, millions of DVDs have been sold. Spanning nearly 30 years, the franchise lives well beyond the screen, having found its way into games, comic books, trading cards and more.

This latest licence agreement follows Heathside’s recent announcement that it will produce die cast vehicles and prop replicas based on sci-fi series, The Expanse, through a licence agreement with Alcon Television Group.
