The news of this impending giant auction of original props and costumes from Stargate: SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis both thrills and saddens my inner fanboy: Thrills, because the prospect of owning, say, the original “travel” stargate, the “Thor” puppet, Daniel Jackson’s glasses, Teal’c’s forehead tattoo, Ronon Dex’s blaster, a mature larval Goa’uld, Apophis’s “serpent” helmet, a Zero Point Module, the original MALP robot probe, a bucket of Replicator blocks, an Iratus bug, a Jaffa staff weapon, a Zat’nikatel, a ring transporter platform, and/or the original SGC conference room briefing table is pretty awesome (even though all will likely sell for well more than I could afford); and saddens, because it means beyond any doubt that there will be no more SG-1 or SG Atlantis. And, so far, I have to say, I’m not enjoying the more humorless, post-Battlestar Galactica approach of Stargate Universe quite as much.

Anyway, even if you couldn’t or wouldn’t bid in the auction, the downloadable PDF catalog makes for extremely amusing and interesting browsing for fans of the show and those interested in sci-fi props in general. [via Boing Boing]
