If you are a huge Stargate fan, then you should get in line for the upcoming Stargate Auction being put on by MGM and Propworx, the auction house that recently ran the Star Trek auction in Las Vegas. The Stargate auction will have over 850 lots of props, costumes, production artwork, concept drawings and set pieces will go up for sale September 25-26 in Seattle, Washington.
Most notable among the lots is the Lot 51: SG-1 Travel Stargate used during location shooting of Stargate SG-1 and in the second season of Stargate Universe. This huge prop is made of fiberglass and mounted on a welded steel frame and features working lights behind the chevrons and is 22 feet tall.
Lot 560: M.A.L.P or Mobile Analytic Laboratory Probe vehicle used by Stargate Command to investigate alien planets before sending in a live team, was used in Stargate SG-1 Season One and would make the perfect addition to a collector’s display of the gate. Lot 590 is a fully articulating animatronic Asgard puppet portraying Thor and numerous other Asgard throughout the most recent years of SG-1 and Atlantis. This was the final version of the puppet to be created by the Stargate special effects team and measures four feet in length!
“Never in one place have so many beautiful props, costumes and set pieces from the Stargate franchise been auctioned at one time,” said Alec Peters, CEO and founder of Propworx in a prepared statement. “Stargate’s reputation as a visually beautiful and intellectually challenging series is on display at one of the most stunning locations on Earth, the Science Fiction Museum in Seattle. We are honored to bring this event to the loyal fans and collectors who have followed the series throughout its development.”
