Gate Geek – It’s like a garage sale, but with staff weapons

So you’ve had two TV series and a new one on the way.  Your storage room is getting a little overcrowded.  What’s the first rule of organizing?  Purge, people.

And so it is that we have a new legacy auction running of Stargate SG1 and SGA merchandise from the Stargate productions storage room.  Apparently, over 100 items will slowly be going up.

This is really the stuff, folks.  Plus, you get Robert Cooper’s signature on your certificate of authenticity.

Won’t you look cool running through Dragon*Con with this stuff!

The fandom minute: Please don’t bring me the head of Jar-Jar Binks (and other freakiness)

Battlestar Galactica costume auction in the works…

Interested in purchasing costumes and props from the Sci-Fi series Battlestar Galactica? Apollo’s or Starbuck’s flight suit? Admiral Adama’s uniform? full size Raptors or Vipers ? (will those even fit in my garage?) Propworx (which has handled Star Trek prop & costume auctions in the past) will be having a series of live and online auctions of 3,000 BSG costumes and props next year, and has started a blog of what they have found in production storage, found at

In the news: Auctions, exhibit crowds, TFU

The TIE fighter model in the Profiles in History auction is expected to fetch up to £100,000, the highest-priced (or, well, estimated) item in the collection. That’s about about $200,000 American. Gotta love the exchange rate… The Crusade Grail is only expected to go for about £12,500, or $25,000.

Threepio\'s feet

There are several Star Wars items in the latest Profiles in History auction, including Threepio’s feet (above,) a TIE miniature, a Duros latex head cast, an Imperial Officer uniform and X-Wing master molds, all from from A New Hope. The Star Wars items are lots 901-905, but there’s plenty of sci-fi and action film items scattered throughout, including the Holy Grail from The Last Crusade (Lot 916.) You don’t have to be a collector to enjoy paging through the catalog PDF… (Thanks to Rach on the list!)
