LOS ANGELES — September 17, 2010 —Propworx, in association with MGM, announces The Official Stargate Prop and Costume Auctions at the Experience Music Project|Science Fiction Museum in Seattle, Washington to be held September 24 – 26, 2010 and live online at www.propworx.com. This is the first in a series of two live auctions featuring items from Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, with the final auction in 2011 concluding a year-long run of online and live Stargate auctions.

Over 850 lots of props, costumes, production artwork, concept drawings, and set pieces will be on display Friday, September 24, culminating in the auction on September 25 – 26. 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, the premier Hollywood studio auction company. “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.”

“We are thrilled in association with Propworx to be offering Stargate fans, collectors and the general public an opportunity to see and experience these amazing props and costumes,” says Chris Bosco, Senior Vice President, MGM Studios. “An auction of this caliber is truly a unique and memorable experience.”
