Amanda Tapping Holding the Ribbon Device

We recently had the pleasure of sending one of our Ribbon Device replicas to Vancouver to be auctioned off by Amanda Tapping for her charity: Sanctuary for Kids. Ms Tapping, along with Stargate producer Martin Wood, and writer Damian Kindler, had the opportunity to handle the prop before and during the auction. We are happy to report that they were all very impressed with not only it's accuracy, but also how much fun it is to play with.

SG Costumes for $32!Sep. 9 2008

Legends Memorabilia is running a special where you can buy three non-hero Stargate costumes for $95. The only drawback is that they are randomly chosen, and you won't know what you are going to get. This is still a sweet deal though, as there are sure to be plenty of gems hidden in there! So get them while they last. Here is the link
