The fifth week of the Stargate props, costumes and set dec auctions has begun! This week includes 115 lots of items ranging from SG and Atlantis uniforms to light-up Puddle Jumper parts, access cards and bantos rods!
As with every week, GateWorld brings you highlights of our favorite lots. Here’s what we’ve selected for week five!
Wraith Rifle with Working Lights
Light-up rifle used mainly by Wraith drones in the production of Stargate Atlantis Season One. From Season Two forward, these weapons were often replaced with more compact pistols.
Dr. Lee Alternate Reality Glasses
Glasses worn by actor Bill Dow playing an alternate version of “Bill Lee” in the Stargate SG-1 episode, “The Road Not Taken”. In both realities, Dr. Lee was a scientist based at Stargate command from its fourth year of operation forward. He was often used as comic relief on both SG-1 and Atlantis. Lee is one of the few characters to have appeared on all three live-action incarnations of the Stargate franchise.
Enemy Mine Original Charcoal Art
Original charcoal sketch of the Unas territorial marker from the Stargate SG-1 Season Seven episode, “Enemy Mine.” Artist James Robbins often worked with charcoal, his favorite medium, to share his vision.
Genii Hero Control Panel
Screen-used control panel used in the Genii mine set of the Stargate Atlantis Season Four episode, “Trio”.
Wraith Stunt Costume
Long black jacket, trousers and armor pads worn by Wraith “Commanders” during the production of Stargate Atlantis. The Wraith were the species responsible for defeating the Ancients, running them out of the Pegasus Galaxy and back to Earth ten thousand years ago. The arrival of the Atlantis expedition awoke them to the promise of a new feeding ground in the Milky Way.
Replicator Armored Costume
Tan armor jacket, armored chest piece, brown gauntlets and grieves, and gray undershirt and trousers, worn by a member of the Asuran Replicator guard in the third and fourth seasons of Stargate Atlantis. In the Season Three two-parter, “The Return”, these Replicators stormed Atlantis and took control from a ship of Ancients who recently returned to their home.
Zat gun used by both Jaffa and humans in the production of Stargate SG-1. Zat’ni’katels were introduced in the SG-1 Season One finale, “Within the Serpent’s Grasp,” as a less-powerful alternative to the much larger staff weapon. The name, and the 3-shots-desintegrate nature of the Zat gun became the butt of numerous in-jokes, namely in the 100th episode “Wormhole X-Treme!”
Stargate Command light box translight featured in countless episodes of Stargate SG-1. Translights were used at the base to display information. This particular translight depicts the mean surface temperature of another world.
Lucian Alliance Uniform
Gray and black uniform blouse and trousers, worn by a member of the Lucian Alliance during the production of Stargate SG-1. With the loss of the Goa’uld to the Replicators hundreds of planets, once enslaved, were free to govern their own territories. The corrupt Lucian Alliance stepped forward to fill much of this power vacuum.
Wall Sconce with Working Lights
Light-up wall sconce used by Michael Shanks and David Hewlett as “Daniel Jackson” and “Rodney McKay,” respectively, in the Stargate Atlantis Season Five episode, “First Contact.” Daniel and Rodney tapped this and other lights in various sequences until the two determined how to use them to enter Janus’s secret laboratory.
What, from last week’s auctions, sold best and worst? An Atlantis working wall light went for $1,625, followed by a Wraith Stunner with working lights for $1,025 and Mitchell’s sword from “Camelot” for $910. For the opposite end, a Wraith stunner holster went for $31, the concept art for an alien’s anatomy from “One False Step” sold for $32, and a naquadah brick sold for $48.
The latest series of auctions will run now through Sunday night. Visit eBay now to bid, and be sure to check out StargateArtifacts.com for more information!
I’m fed up with seeing these articles about SGA props being sold. It’s depressing enough as it is to have SGA be cancelled for BattleGate 90210. Then TPTB promise us a movie, and instead of keeping their word, they betray the fans again! ARRGG :(
may i be the first to point out that “Trio” was in season 4, not 3! Also, i wish i had some spare monies to buy some of this stuff… stupid rich people :(
Yeah I gotta agree every time I see more of this stuff those movies look farther and farther away. As in circling the drain.
those movies are doomed.
I don’t think its a sign that the movies are going away, I mean comon, are we gonna use those reetu drawings again? Though selling the clothes and the gate does raise eyebrows. Heck, the clothes they sell can be used to make 10 more of them!
All of the pieces of the gate being sold off thus far have been essentially “flashing” and are just left over pieces from assembly of the props themselves so I don’t think that has much to do with anything. Props and costumes are created constantly so I would imagine what has been sold off thus far is just the tip of the iceberg. Still, it’s sad to see that so many of TPTB and the actors keep saying the movies won’t happen and THEN to see this stuff getting sold off. Though I’m glad I was able to get a… Read more »
I have to tell you that if they were to make more movies i would hope they would make new props instead of recycling the old ones, more cost effective but I like to see variety in my props so they don’t all look alike from episode to episode, or too the movies, but that is me I guess.
I actually think making new costumes is more cost effective… To make a C4 block cost less than 5 bucks, sell it on the internet for 10 times the price!
Hopefully, not everyone is clueless about the game that’s going on. There will be no Atlantis movie. There MAY be an SG-1 movie, but that’s doubtful too. SGU (aka Battlegate Voyager: 90210) is the vehicle they have hitched the Stargate wagon to, and it is too weak to pull the weight. SGU has killed the Stargate franchise as we knew it, and may have killed it for good. Where is the money going to come from to recreate the sets in CGI, or to pay the characters from either Atlantis or SG-1 to star in them? How will they pull… Read more »
It’s a shame they’re charging such ridiculous amounts for postage to the UK, they say minimum of $85! Which would cost more than some of the items I’d otherwise bid on :(
a Lot of the stuff, the vast majority, is stuff that will not be used again. and of course they posted this info here (where else would they) plus im personally glad they did. i won an item for a Very fair price. one of the extras in continuum who was wearing a suit and tie suit (not like a flight suit or something) happens to be my exact size. and now i have what retailed to be a very expensive suit outside, for less than $80… new clothes for my friends wedding-check (and no one will be able to… Read more »
