The official Stargate prop and costume auction house is selling a particularly historic piece of franchise history this week: an original Atlantis Stargate segment.
Propworx, the company which has brought more than 40 weeks of Stargate auctions to eBay, is taking a bit of a breather before its Second Live Auction on March 19 (announcement). But before it does this, the company intends to go out with a bang.
A complete section of Stargate from the Atlantis television series is now available to own on eBay, and will be up for grabs until Sunday, February 27. This is not a Stargate auction per se, but a “Sci Fi” auction which includes multiple properties.
The starting price for the Stargate is $5,000. Three previous Stargate sections sold for that amount last September, and three more segments are scheduled to be sold in the live auction in February. This Stargate section, which fully lights via two standard wall plugs, will be the only one offered outside of a live auction.
Propworx is also selling several other iconic Stargate pieces alongside the gate, including an Ancient communication stone, a complete Jaffa warrior costume, Jacob Carter’s Tok’ra uniform and numerous costumes worn by SG-1 and Atlantis main cast members. Two tan desert camouflage costumes worn by SG-1 stars Michael Shanks and Amanda Tapping are also on sale. Tan uniforms from SG-1 are extremely hard to come by in the costume community.
In addition to Stargate, Propworx is also selling items from “Aliens,” the reimagined Battlestar Galactica, Defying Gravity, “Fantastic Four,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man,” The Robinsons: Lost In Space aborted pilot, and “X-Men 2.” These properties combined total more than 260 lots, many of which are showcased in the YouTube video below.
In anticipation of the March 19 live auction, the next Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis Official Prop and Costume auction catalog is now for sale, and can be purchased by visiting this link.
