Atlantis Stargate section on sale this week

A very rare and special piece of Stargate history -- a section of Stargate itself -- could be yours very soon.

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.

Check out the “propworx” eBay account on eBay by following this link! You can also view the Stargate Segment by going to its page directly. Again, these auction items end Sunday, February 27.

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.

As have been said before, if they do want to make an Atlantis movie these auctions doesn’t matter, mots props would be redone anyway.
Darren and David went trough it all in one of the podcasts can’t remember which one of course :p

Aww, that’s so sad. :(
Really hits you in the gut that we aren’t going to see SGA again, in any form.

I really hope that MGM considers making bith SGU and SGA movies those series need closure and not be forgotten.

I hate you for posting this. I was hoping to get that dang communications stone for less than $600.

@David, I know, and I’ve even bought a few things, but it’s still sad.

I hate these auctions! I want a piece of it! Always soo expensive! What about giving the fans a chance to actually get something instead of people with lots of money!

Wish they woulda sold the complete gate to a museum rather than cut it up.

What makes this whole thing even more sad is that to some people who have been celebrating the canceling of SGU it is finally dawning the fact that their boycot of SGU and subsequent end of it,always meant killing the entire franchise..there never was any other logical consequence!So now all of you can reap what you sowed.I’m not trying to belittle,or minimize the SyFy’s and producer’s liability,but in the end the splitting of the fandom and the non stop bashing and ranting share that liability,to say the least,if it’s not the main reason for canceling the SGU and consequently ending… Read more »

They told us not to watch it if we didnt like it! So we did and now its dead. They ultimately created a show that didnt fit in with the previous ones. How you can expect a fanbase to migrate to new show that is nothing like what they fell in love with! They turned hit from a fun relaxing and interesting show to a over character driven drama while making us SICK with the shaky camera. If i liked shows like that i would never have watched SG-1 or Atlantis. They killed it not the fans, the fans simply… Read more »

Jim, I think you go a bit overboard blaming fans for not watching SGU. Though it is sad SGU and Stargate is going, going, gone.. it would have still been here had it been better. I mean, even Robert.. the producer decided to leave “after ses. 2” – that was a big clue he didn’t even believe in it any more. I watched SGU casually and would have continued doing so but I really couldn’t say it was great. It’s the characters, I didn’t particularly like any of them (Eli and the Captain maybe) and though I love Robert Carlyle… Read more »

@Jim, a fair number of people tuned into the premier of SGU, less than half have stuck it through to the end. Even if every registered member of this site boycotted the show, it wouldn’t have mattered. It was the casual viewer who decided they didn’t care enough about the show or the characters to continue watching. Not disgruntled fans who post on internet sites.

the casual viewer got a bad impression by seeing the split in fandom. If stargate lost its core fanbase then how could we expect the casual viewer to muster the urge to keep watching SGU? Most casual viewers want to be part of some fanbase, sadly stargate fans all of them have been an embarrassment.

Mythos

It was the showrunners, specifically Brad Wright, changing Stargate and essentially blowing off the long-term fans of the Stargate franchise that caused this. All actions have consequences. I think most of those who spoke out against SGU knew that it would probably mean the end, but if SGU was the direction that the franchise was going to go with, they would sooner have it end. I don’t think anyone can rationally claim that Stargate wouldn’t have been better off sticking with Atlantis at this point. The ratings were on an upswing and if they had just given it a little… Read more »

I agree that the producers killed the show,I said that on numerous occasiones,I mean they are the most guilty for it’s downfall.What I meant to say is to point to some’s fans illusiones that once the SGU is gone,they were gonna get SGA ans SG1 movies and who knows what else back. Now we all have one big NOTHING!!
Is this better?

Jim
Member

@Duneknight Yes stargate fans have been embarrassment and we all got exactly what we deserved,nothing!
I think one completely opposite example are Smallville’s fans..they stuck by their show through all of it ups and downs and in the end got the improvements and basically all they wanted,including the upcoming finale they all expect as an epic launch of a Superman character.Which unlike us and our cliffhanger,they’ll get!

Mythos

@Jim – I’m not sure that it’s not better. At least now, if there is another iteration, it’s less likely to be in the same style as SGU and more likely to go back to the ways of SG1 and SGA. Space Operas are hard to pull off on television to begin with. To do so while the focus is on forced drama just won’t work. I said elsewhere that the type of audience that is looking for such mundane drama details will never accept a space setting. At least not in today’s world. There will obviously be some exceptions,… Read more »

@mythos So it’s between that song..”I need a heroo..” and Turner’s…”we don’t need another heroo..” lol! I wouldn’t quite agree with your observation on Smallville,because Clark hasn’t been a hero,Superman for at least 7 of those ten years that show has been airing.He’s been struggling and had to get there.In fact fans have begun to become really impatient about that at some points,more than just one. The most popular guy on Lost hasn’t been the hero Jack,but the anti-hero Sawyer,who also learned to change,to a certain extent. What I’m saying is you don’t neccessarily need a hero to draw in… Read more »

@Jim – But with Smallville, even in the earlier episodes, he was still the ‘hero’. Both because he was still the one making the right decisions and also because he was a legacy. Superman was already known. So the established character was already known. You didn’t have to look anywhere else and question. And yes, fans did become impatient but mostly because they didn’t realize that they can’t simply put Superman on Smallville. There are licensing issues and costs. It was said long ago that he wouldn’t become Superman until the finale. As for Lost, it was an anomaly. There… Read more »

@mythos lol..that’s why when I said that people need someone to identify with,I immediately explained,that because of it those characters need to be redeemable..because if someone is alchocholic they do need the hope that he can get out of it and messed up characters make up for a good drama!See,you can’t do that,you can’t pull just one part of my sentence out of the context and completely change it’s meaning. That is called,putting words in other’s mouth and is completely invalid argument. So if you want to have an argument with someone,you should make sure you’re really having an argument… Read more »

@Duneknight “the casual viewer got a bad impression by seeing the split in fandom.” Wrong. The casual TV viewer doesn’t know the first thing about online fandom. Casual viewers got a bad first impression from the bad first episodes of SGU, nothing more. @Jim “I think one completely opposite example are Smallville’s fans..they stuck by their show through all of it ups and downs and in the end got the improvements and basically all they wanted,including the upcoming finale they all expect as an epic launch of a Superman character.” That’s because the producers and writers of Smallville made a… Read more »

Speaking of heroes a big shout out to the 1st SOFD-D brothers in Lybia right now,protecting and ex-filling our citizens!!

@Jim – Only I’m not actually arguing a point. :P I’m just providing the details of the scenario. Time proves what is right and wrong (or more what’s correct and incorrect as to not imply a moral connotation). Regarding identifying with the characters, I was making a different point than you. They don’t need to identify with the character, they need to want to identify with the character. Th alcoholics and the like, that is. The difference is subtle, but it is there. And your use of Smallville may have been to talk about fans sticking with the show, my… Read more »

Not a single bid on the gate segment…

@ mythos and jim. I would say that both of your comments are valid and after reading your points felt compelled to add another alternative point of view. Sci Fi has always followed a pattern laid down since the late sixties with Star Trek. The heroic crew vs the enemies of all they hold dear. This has served us well for more than forty years clearly. However the later Star Trek spin offs began to lose their lustre for me personally because the format became rigid and over used. Next Gen found its stride, but DS9 just seemed to continue… Read more »

I do have one gripe though. Thise that hated on the series without even watching it. You have no right to comment on wether or not this series deserved to be cancelled or not.

To form an opinion I believe you should at least watch the material in question before you can make an objective decision.

Those that watched it and hated it after. Fair play at least you took a look first and then made your choice.

But to hate for hates sake is frankly wrong.

@ David – You are right, it IS better to see parts of SG1 and Atlantis history getting sold off to people who will give them good homes, and appreciate what they have. Another plus point is at least you are involved with the process in a professional capacity, which also is a big contrast to what happened with Star Trek, or (Don’t laugh) Thunderbirds. (The series not the 2004 movie). Its just a shame the Gate had to be cut into pizza style pieces to make it’s sale work. @ Everyone else. I say the TPAB made a long… Read more »

It’s bittersweet to see this. Now we now for a fact that no one in the inner circle thinks the movies will be made…I can think of no greater Symbolic gesture to express this, then cutting the Lantian gate into 6 frakkin mantle pieces!

How can you switch from Genuine Scifi, which though higly Improbable, could actually have happen… To 2 shows that could never be, and embody SyFy’s whole switch to the “Imagination” platform?

I like Sanctuary too, but dont for a second think it would have ever got of the ground, if not for Stargate. and Wharehouse 13 has me changing the channel on half the episodes (alot like the first half of SGU) But at least SGU was SciFi, and actually COULD get better, as evidenced by season 2…

Thunderbird 2

(I assume you address me Trinium) Its simple really. I don’t choose my Sci Fi programming by whats probable or not. I choose it by whether I like the concept, characters and the stories they tell. – Thunderbirds, Babylon 5, The X Files, Dr Who, – all completely different forms of Sci Fi, and I have enjoyed them all. Its simply a matter of personal taste. I like to think Sanctuary and Warehouse 13 are a sub-genre in their own right too. Back on topic – Have the SG1 gates been pie sliced like the Atlantis gate?

Jim

@mythos You say They don’t need to identify with the character,they need to want to identify with the character,lol!I refuse to believe you don’t see the absurdity in what you said.Yeah what drives me to the show is the fact that I WANT to identify with the character,that’s what I think about…oh man.I truly believe that what you meant to say wasn’t that they need to want to…,but you meant to say they need to be ABLE to identify with the character.I say taht,because that is the exact frase you used before.But in this case you just couldn’t use it… Read more »

FYI The ray gun in your video was originally built for a movie called beer money. There was originally a working hero with mechanical aperture and lights.
I know because I built it, as well as the Stargate drone and a few other items you have.
