No excuse for that. ohmy.gif They just need some better QC(quality control) on the engraver(s) they farm out to do the lettering. That's all. sakopen.gif

Edit: Actually, Mac2Nite - I would contact them and request an exchange of the knife .... because that specific
lettering is so iconic and synonymous with the MacGyver brand/logo .... 'engraved' in fan's minds really through the explosive graphics used with ..... thus nothing else is really acceptable.

I agree... but I'll wait awhile & see if Legends addresses the issue and then request an exchange if they correct the "type" to the correct one pictured on the website.

WOW... hope you got yours KiwiTek! Maybe they'll make more after they fill all of the back orders?

I thought this thing could have been much better, just a engraved Spartan or Tinker without the photo and frame would seem more appropriate. If you guys really like it, great, but my first thought was meh.

We regret to announce that the MacGyver knife display has been permanently withdrawn and will no longer be available.

We do have a small number of Swiss Army Knives that have been personally autographed by Richard Dean Anderson and these will be made available on our website shortly.

I think it's kind of amateurish and not unlike a bait and switch where you are shown one product and sent another.  Where was the engraving done? China?  unsure.gif

Unfortunately the engraving process was extremely difficult. We have a laser engraver and trying to obtain a clean 'cut' with the laser heat on the plastic was a definite challenge. If anyone is unsatisfied with the product they have received, we are prepared to accept it back for a full refund. We regret we are unable to exchange them as we have now permanently withdrawn the product from manufacture and they will no longer be available.

Thank you.

That's a bummer that the display is no longer available. It's a nice display, and I've gotten a lot of compliments on mine. Thanks for showing us Mac fans a little love... we certainly appreciate it. happy.gif

Agreed... I really love mine and have also received many compliments regarding my display.

I just want to tell Paul that any comments/critiques on my part regarding the engraving on the knife were never meant to denigrate the appearance or the amazing work that went into creating this fantastic collectable.

Sorry to those who were unable to obtain one before they were gone sad.gif

And I would also like to send out a HUGE "Thank You" to Legends Canada and Richard Dean Anderson for all that you do for all of us RDA/MacGyver/Stargate fans out here! And the fact that all of the profits go to RDA's charities is icing on the cake!

Yeah, I've seen a wide variation in quality with this service and depending on the laser model used. The following company has gotten good reviews on some of the multi-tool sites. It can be done well, but I guess you gotta shop around a bit.

Thank you very much for your kind comments, they are greatly appreciated.

In recognising there was very little merchandise in the collectible market relating to MacGyver, we tried to create something that would appeal to Richard's loyal fanbase. Unfortunately, our efforts in doing so ran into a stumbling block with respect to licensing, hence our decision to withdraw the knife display. We rightly acknowledge the proprietary ownership of the rights to the name MacGyver and if the opportunity arises, we shall pursue this matter in our efforts to reach an amicable arrangement with the owner. Should this be successful, then we may attempt to bring this item back to the market with their approval.

I would also like to acknowledge your comment concerning our activity with Richard and his chosen charities. I consider it a privilege to work with him in this regard and he and I both enjoy the superb support we receive from his fans.

Thanks again!

Paul

So let me get this right... Paramount wont do anything for the fans themselves but they wont allow the star of the show to do anything either??

I've got a word to describe paramount, but I'm pretty sure it would get me kicked out of this place if I used it.

It's not like Legends is selling bootleg copies of the show!

Thank you for your feedback, Paul. It is frustrating indeed. Especially when all that the fans wish to do is to purchase an authentic collectors item of the show.

Hmmmmm hmm.bmp now I'm curious - I wonder what part of the 'display' is that the rights holders have an issue with? Is it the blurb? The photograph? Or the name 'MacGyver' that is protected/copyrighted? Or all of the above. I'm thinking a signed SAK with a non-Paramount issue photo(there must be some laying around) of RDA, and a clever blurb that appeases the legal beagles might work as well ... or better!

God only knows... Paramount hates us. However, Zlotoff actually has the rights to the pilot... I think. An RDA-related display isn't a bad idea if Paramount decides to get frisky.

Honestly, I prefer that my money goes to RDA's charities anyway. At least that way, I know the money is going to a good cause.

Zlotoff owns everything new, CBS (which owns Paramount) owns the TV show, which means the sets, images and characters (except MacGyver, because Zlotoff owns that) are owned by CBS.

So I guess technically Paul could be shafted from both sides at once. Which sucks when you consider this was being done for charity by the star of the show AND as has already been mentioned CBS aren't interested in giving the fans anything.

You'd think they could let one slide for a charity which is very much inline with what the show itself promoted. dry.gif

Thanks to everyone for posting your comments regarding this issue.

For clarification, the communication received came from CBS, not Mr Zlotoff directly. The issue concerned the unlicensed use of the name MacGyver, as well as the image. We duly acknowledged their concerns and proprietary rights and immediately terminated the project. Should there be any interest forthcoming from Mr Zlotoff or CBS concerning the negotiation of a license agreement, we would be happy to consider this. Although the project in its current form has been terminated, we would be open to reviving it under reasonable terms that would still allow this to be sold at an attractive price for buyers. We do not waiver from our view that there is little (if anything) in the collectible market for MacGyver fans and it was in light of this that we attempted to create something to address this.

As you have noted, there is a charity aspect to everything we do with Richard and this project was included in that program. In the absence of reaching an accord with CBS or Mr Zlotoff, then the MacGyver knife display will remain a closed matter. We may however consider creating some form of memorabilia display that focusses on Richard (as has been suggested on this forum). But for now, we are moving forward with other (non related) projects.

Again, my thanks to those members of this forum who have taken the time to comment on this matter.

Now I'm going to shamefully show my ignorance: what does CBS have to do with MacGyver? I thought it was an ABC TV series... blush.gif

CBS/Paramount actually owns MacGyver... ABC just aired it. Actually, I think ABC is either owned or connected to Disney. I didn't know this either... Thanks Wikipedia!!!

Yeah I only found out recently that Disney was the parent company of CBS.

Here's the run down.

TV shows are made by production companies who then sell to TV channels to broadcast.

In MacGyver's case the production company which made it was Paramount and the TV channel which broadcast it was ABC.

Paramount was initially purchased by CBS Corporation becoming 'CBS Paramount' and handing all ownership/copyrights to CBS, which is how CBS now own MacGyver.

CBS Corporation and ABC broadcasting are now both owned by Disney but apparently still continue to operate as separate companies.


That's show biz!

Strange but I always thought MacGyver was a show that should have been owned by Disney.

Now if only they could work to make a reboot.

TV companies never cease to amaze me. They have thousands of fans of their shows, but never want to actually do anything for said fans if it isn't lining their pockets. I used to run a fan site for a WB show. They were actually quite nice about the content I had up, and I was even given an account with them to get promo images for each episode to post etc.

Then one day some newbie in the office decided he was going to play big shot. I got an e-mail out of the blue threatening me with legal action if I didn't take the images down immediately. Even though they'd given me the account on the first place!

It did get sorted, but its so sad that fans can't enjoy being fans because of red tape!

I hope legends does something with RDA like this again, I'd love it!

Tried again today to respond to MacGyverOnline message and keep getting this:

"We could not find any matches for the member names you entered into the carbon copy box, please check the input before resubmitting

This personal message has not been sent" sad.gif

Guess my only option is to list it over on eBay....

Hey Mac2Nite!

I'm not sure if this is the problem you're having or not, but I've gotten that error when I've put someone's name in the "carbon copy" box. There shouldn't be any names in that box, just where the second line from the top in the "recipient's name" section.

It should look like the below. I hope this helps, as I've done this to myself in the past. lol If not, sorry! I tried!

If you want, you test it out with my username and see if it's giving you the same problem. I don't mind. wink.gif

Also make sure your clicking reply and not the forward option (which is right beside it.
