    I have 3 costumes at home that i bought for 100 dollars. One of them was worn by the 'betrayer' tokra chick in Tok'ra, i've never been able to ID the others. Extras costumes are rarely labeled what show they're for, they're used, cleaned, tossed in a bin or hung up and that's it.

    after 10+ years of a show, you can imagine that they'll have tons and tons of extras costumes, most of which are hand made.

    Memorbilia can be very cheap, it just depends on how much a part of the show it was.

    Like they had on an episode of Pawn Stars, when a guy thought he had a real whip from Indiana Jones

    roughly the expert said : if this was a prop one of the stunt guys brought on set to play with, eh, few bucks to few hundred. If it was used in the movie by a stunt man, several hundred to a couple thousand, if you can prove that Harrison Ford used it in the movie, complete with certificate of authenticity, 30-40,000.

    same whip, the pedigree determines its value

    same with show props. the more recognizable and memorable, the more sought after it'll be. Background stuff that they changed out every so often or that there were a dozen copies of, very affordable.

    Hero costumes are often some of the most sought after items. I've been at con auctions and seen them go for hundreds or thousands. I saw the Crystal Skull sell for 2400 several years ago.

    and then i have my two props that were sold at silent auction and i was the only bidder.

    Quite correct. It all depends on the production. With Battlestar Galactica, "Hero" simply denoted screen-used. The "Hero" prop was the one in the actor's hand. So in fact you could have had a rubber stunt gun be a "Hero" if Apollo handled it. A bit confusing.

    Typically "Hero" means a better quality version, used for close ups. But it is critical that an item be described accurately. Most prop companies and auction houses don't spend the time to accurately authenticate items, and you are just supposed to take their word for it. That is why collecting Screen Used props & costumes is the most fraud-ridden hobby I have ever been a part of.

    It has the feel of a Pegaus-era Ancient outpost. The distinct golden brown suggests an standard research-oriented outpost, however upon closer the examination, the layout of the glyphs suggests an outpost possibly dedicated to socio-political research.

    That's a good idea. I've got about 8 costumes I can't identify. Though I haven't really tried that hard. I got one recently that had 'Syler' in the tag. Needless to say that was a bit exciting considering how inexpensive it was!
    Thanks to Oma-1 for the beautiful banner!

    anyone wants to start a costume/prop id thread, it's fine with me

    One thing to bear in mind, some of them will never be identifiable. some costumes might have been on extras in footage that was cut so will never be seen

    The little alkesh-like doohickeys look like detail pieces off of the 'alien mousetrap' from SGA's Hide and Seek.

    I seem to recall hearing that this machine was originally used on SG-1 and then they redressed it a bit to reuse it as something else on Atlantis.

    Sparky is on screen. Therefore, it is canon. Elizabeth is still out there. And John WILL bring her home.

    Dunno, but the fact that they're slapped onto that weird round thingy in the full pic in the original post makes me think that the studio probably made numerous pairs of these things that were used on various props, including the Atlantis mousetrap. So there's probably quite a few of these things floating around.

    Snap! I was only watching SGA Hide and Seek last nite and spotted both the device and the items on top and thought to myself, ''nice one, ive found what they belong to'' , should really have checked the thread here first

    Pardon me for saying but we are the people who buy these props and identifying them for the prop store of london will only help them charge us even more extortionate prices then they do already.
    I used to think they was ok when they first started out but now they just want to overcharge for everything they keep the best stuff for there own collection to lord it over everyone,
    Not many prop collectors in the uk like them much and a few of my fellow prop collecting friends have noticed some of the items on there site have seen on and bought off ebay for peanuts then the same item appears on there site ten times the price after they have authenticated it.
    I can identify most of there unknown items for example they have a unidentified EFC taelon prop thats broken and been repaired they got the cheek to lable it up at £189, i know it was never used on screen firstly because ive seen every episode and also because i happen to own the slightly slimmer one that was used on screen in a few different episodes and i paid a mere £25 for it

    All i can say is if they have something you really want buy it but be aware if you decide to sell it on a few years down the line you wont ever get back anywhere near what you paid for it

    I believe this is from SG-1 Season 4, Episode 3 "Upgrades" at 38minutes - 12 seconds when O'Neil goes to grab it from the wall.

    Is there an archive page of all of the past Prop Store sales, preferably searchable for Stargate, similar to the way Propworx has many of them catalogued and documented? It would be nice to see the items as well as their sales price histories.

    I have seen a lot of them, but missed a few, such as the Wraith wall segments from 2010 and would love to see photos of all the Stargate stuff: https://web.archive.org/web/20100524...NewAdditions=0
