Stargate Props Going Up For Auction

will_die writes "After all the recent auctions for Propworx's Battlestar Galactica props, they are now selling off 15 years of Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis props. Over the next couple of months minor items will be sold on eBay, and the major items will be sold in two live auctions. eBay auctions will consist of smaller props, most costumes, drawings and even parts of Stargates. The live auctions will contain items such as the Thor puppet, The Ark of Truth, and the only fully working Stargate. (Multiple Stargates needed for travel)." My wife will be bidding on Daniel Jackson. I wouldn't mind a Zat gun, but at $3K–$4K, it's a bit rich for my blood... although if the neighbor's dog keeps getting out of his electric fence I might have no choice...

Cheaper Alternative (1, Funny)

Buy a brick of velveeta cheese and a bottle of castor oil. Sprinkle some of the castor oil on the brick and feed it to the dog every time it gets out of the fence.

Trust me, the problem will solve itself one way or the other.

You're right, you should just talk to your neighbor about that frothing pit bull.

Also known as Stargate's Emergency Plot Device. Ever notice how every one of them they find is almost dead or will be dead very very shortly, but is always just enough to save the plot? So it goes to follow that any ZPM would have exactly enough power to work at the auction and then be useless.

magsol (1406749) | more than 4 years ago | (#30953534)

Yeah, that's pretty obvious. It was indeed introduced as a "save their ass" device, but it wasn't maxed out keeping the city running. It ran for the next two seasons, allowing them to raise and lower shields, engage and disengage the cloak, fire drones, and have plenty of power to spare for everyday goings-on. I believe it was the episode with Rodney and his sister experimenting with parallel universes in season 3 which drained the ZPM.

I believe it was the episode with Rodney and his sister experimenting with parallel universes in season 3 which drained the ZPM.

For starters, I believe they claimed to be using some mini Naquada generators to keep the general city running. It was mentioned a few times in season 1 such as when there was an energy draining monster, and later they needed to make one give off an EMP.

As for the shield, I don't recall them using the left-over ZPM for that... they did use it to make a cloak but even they said that used very little power. Unless you mean the shield around the gate itself, at which point I don't recall if that was the ZPM or their generators.

You are correct, Rodney and his sister finished it off trying to send "Rod" back to his universe. However a few episodes later they managed to get a few.

Re:A Working ZPM (4, Interesting)

bill_kress (99356) | more than 4 years ago | (#30954248)

They actually did a fairly good job of slowly integrating technology. At first, each alien tech was extremely rare and hard to find, then they would either find more or find a way to duplicate one.

The ZPMs worked exactly this way. At first they would get one, it would go away and they might get another. They were old and rarely had a charge. Towards the end there were actually a handful in use.

Same with ships and most other tech.

I like that technology wasn't arbitrary like on Star Trek, where they might get their hands on a technology or idea that was world changing to solve a single intractable problem, but then that idea would just vanish instead of getting integrated into the rest of the system. (Being able to travel backwards in time would have solved a LOT of problems, and they had that technology for a LONG time without anything preventing them from using it--eventually they figured out that it was a problem and invented a time-police, but that was much later)

1) Have you noticed that the stock market is tanking lately? Invest in what? As for savings, with the Federal government printing money as fast as it can, your cash's value is falling like a rock. You might as well buy something you enjoy with it.

2) Do you tell this to people who buy Picassos too? Those aren't all that easy to sell either. There's probably a lot more geeks on Slashdot who'd be interested in a Stargate prop for $2k or whatever than people able to buy a Picasso for its proper value.

Are you one of those people who has almost no material possessions, because they're too busy "saving" and "investing" all their money?

And the reason we have these economic problems is because of people like you, who "invested" their money in stupid places like the real estate market, creating a bubble that burst. People buying shit like Stargate props actually helps the economy; it doesn't create any kind of bubble, and helps to fund a productive venture (the creation of TV shows) that employs lots of people.

If you had spent your money on some TV show props instead of wasting it on overvalued real estate, then you'd still have those props to look at and enjoy, and probably sell to some other fan. Instead, you're underwater on your investment properties, or you've walked away and the bank is eating the difference and asking the government for a bail-out with newly-printed dollars. Good job on your "investing".

Re:What do you do with this stuff? (1)

radish (98371) | more than 4 years ago | (#30953844)

Have you noticed that the stock market is tanking lately?

The Dow is up something like 25% in the last 12 months. Is that your definition of "tanking"?

As for savings, with the Federal government printing money as fast as it can, your cash's value is falling like a rock

Right. Except that inflation (which is a measure of how fast cash loses value) is fairly low right now, and is predicted to decline in the short term [forecasts.org].

Do you tell this to people who buy Picassos too? Those aren't all that easy to sell either.

Actually, they're very easy to sell. Got a $100m painting - try putting it up for sale for $50m and see how fast it sells. The very definition of market value is "what someone will pay for it" - so by definition if something's worth $100m then someone is willing to pay that. But you are right in a sense, all collectibles (including costumes and paintings) are basically equivalent, the difference is how many people are interested and how much they're willing to pay.

There's probably a lot more geeks on Slashdot who'd be interested in a Stargate prop for $2k or whatever than people able to buy a Picasso for its proper value

The problem is only one geek can get that prop, which pushes the price up beyond $2k until only one geek can afford it. The paintings work the same way...and the higher price is an indication of how many MORE people are interested in that than in the prop.

And the reason we have these economic problems is because of people like you, who "invested" their money in stupid places like the real estate market, creating a bubble that burst

Simple investment is not the issue. The problem comes when people cheat and try to sell something which isn't how it appears (i.e. fake Picasso's which can't be differentiated from the real deal, or crappy CDO's which don't have the rating they claim to have). If I put all my money into what I think is a real painting, and it turns out to be worthless, I've lost my money and the ability to continue investing. When that happens to enough people the markets seize up. The stock market is no different to the collectibles market in that respect.

People buying shit like Stargate props actually helps the economy; it doesn't create any kind of bubble, and helps to fund a productive venture (the creation of TV shows) that employs lots of people.

I doubt VERY MUCH that when the TV studios are planning a new show they take into account how much the props will sell for at auction in 15 years time. The sale of props has nothing to do with supporting the production.

Yeah, it's much better to invest when the market is high.

As for savings, with the Federal government printing money as fast as it can, your cash's value is falling like a rock. You might as well buy something you enjoy with it.

Inflation for 2009 was negative. But that's irrelevant since we know the government is destroying all your money as we speak. If only there were some kind of low-risk investment options that would protect against inflation... oh, to live in a world like that.

No, you are right though, "investing" is a ludicrous idea, best spend all your money on useless shit.

There's nothing wrong with a passion, so long as it's legal and you don't go over-board.

Some people buy art, golf clubs, performance parts for their car, PC equipment. Sure, if you let it go too far and buy more stuff than you can afford, it's an issue.

Some people really love the show; maybe they felt it played a part in their life, maybe they met a friend/spouse/etc due to a common point-of-interest, maybe they just enjoyed the show.

I'm not really into art or antiques, but that doesn't mean I shake my head when I hear someone bought a piece for their living room. So long as they don't put themselves in the financial hole, I say got for it.

I try to keep a nice entertainment system at home along with TV/devices/furniture/lighting/etc. I don't go overboard with it, but it's something I enjoy.

Stargate? (5, Interesting)

Kirin Fenrir (1001780) | more than 4 years ago | (#30952668)

Wake me when the sell the actual STARGATE. That prop is both sexy and mechanically-impressive.

Two full stargate props were originally built for the SG-1 pilot "Children of the Gods", the second of which was reconstructed from the prop used in the film. They are made of steel and fiberglass, and are 22 feet (6.7 m) in diameter. The second prop is less detailed, and is used for exterior scenes; in the pilot it was used solely on the planet Chulak. The primary one, however, is quite sophisticated. It is fully automated, and capable of rotating and emitting light. This is achieved by the use of a specially-designed 22-foot (6.7 m) circular gear, which turns the inner ring on a precise pinion drive wheel, using an eight horsepower electric motor. The top seven chevrons emit laser pulses which are read by a sensor fed into a computer responsible for the gate's movement, which is consequently able to start and stop the rotation very quickly. This main prop is kept almost immovably at the permanent set of the SGC, at Bridge Studios, Vancouver.

I am pretty sure that I have seen on the show a circle made of seemingly weathered stone-like wedges, embedded into the forest floor.

They also simply paint the pattern onto the decks of the ships. It's occasionally shown clearly enough to get a clean image to build from.

Transport ring wedges could be cast in concrete with a mold, painted, and installed outdoors. I'd like to go put one out in the middle of nowhere for a sci-fi fan to find 20 years from now.

. . .Naquadah Generator, and all associated patents, and a sufficient supply of Naquadah to power it for a couple centuries. However much it costs, it will pay for itself. *grin*

You should go halfsies with the guy buying the StarGate for a garage door. Of course, you'll both need a GDO.

I wonder what this means for SGU? (1)

JSBiff (87824) | more than 4 years ago | (#30953334)

It's a little unclear from the site if *everything* from SG1 and SGA are being sold off, or just select props that the writers don't envision ever using again? I wonder what this means for Stargate: Universe? I mean, in theory, they are still in contact with Star Gate Command, and at some point, they may get the Destiny Gate working again to travel back to Earth, so seems like you'd still need the SGC sets available. In any case, there's the Comm Stones, which give us glimpses of Earth again.

SGU hasn't been cancelled (yet) - I saw somewhere that SyFy renewed for a second season. So, I guess that must mean that they aren't selling *everything*?

Plus I believe there's at least one more Direct-To-DVD to be made.

Plus they've supposed greenlit the Stargate: Atlantis movie, so they can't be selling off everything. And yeah, actually the gate that used to be the SGC is now the one being used on Destiny.

Indeed. There's far from a lot of things listed. I guess that's a good thing?

Only one problem: the Ori props. (1)

WoodenTable (1434059) | more than 4 years ago | (#30953502)

Neat. There is one problem, though: How are the Ori props going to sell, when so many Stargate fans don't believe that they exist? :p

Actually, perhaps that could be a selling point. I can see more than one use for being invisible to the hardcore fans. For example, Amanda Tapping could certainly use a Prior's Staff, judging by some of the comments here. ;)

I'd tell her then I'm bidding on Dr. Lam (Michael Shanks' wife Lexa Doig [listal.com]).

Yeah, I was thinking along those lines - the poster's wife would have to be pretty hot to have any chance at all against Lexa...

I just wish their merchandising division would have capitalized on the popularity of the shows years ago--most of my kids have wanted to dress up as one character or another at halloween, and I'd love to have a replica Zat. If they had made semi-decent toy Zats that cost about as much as a Nerf gun, I'd probably have one on my desk right now.

Hell, if I'd have known that buying props was all it took to get SG off the air, I'd have done it years ago.
