Title: Re-use of artifact props
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on August 26, 2011, 10:58:11 PM
The Imperial Purple Robe of Empress Theodora and The Leopard-Skin Cloak of Annie Oakley both look identical on the outside when looking at their screenshots. We don't get to see the inside of the Leopard-Skin Cloak, but we do see the inside of the Imperial Purple Robe. So my question is, are these two artifacts the same item that was used in the temple?

The Imperial Purple Robe of Empress Theodora




The Leopard-Skin Cloak of Annie Oakley




Interesting, they both look similar. I never noticed that at all. Though this wouldn't be the first time legends artifcts were reused. ;)

Yeah, didn't they reuse John Sutter and the Map to the Lost Gold Mine? Which magically became The Treasure Map of Jean Lafitte several episodes later.

Correct, and the producers also loved to use old props as a part of their artifacts for example:

The Treasure of Anne Bonny




Henry the VIII's Great Seal (You can see the treasure box in the back)

I am pretty sure there are more examples of Legends props being used as artifacts. I am pretty sure the Silk Sash from  :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: was used in a temple game earlier on, but I don't remember.  :o

Yeah, it was used for their Dragon Tunnel games. Also, wasn't The Lion-Headed Bracelet of Chandragupta in the shrine throughout Season 1 as well? I'm pretty sure it was. Or maybe it was just another treasure used for decoration.

That's a good question. I know there is something else in the back of the Treasure Room near the Shrine door, but I could never make it out.

This is a picture I took from "The Lucky Pig of Amelia Earhart." I couldn't find a better shot of it in the other runs. It looks like some sort of golden skull or something like that sitting in the back of the room.
Title: Re: Question about a certain artifact
Post by: PurpleParrot319 on August 27, 2011, 02:16:22 PM
I guess that skull was only used for room decoration.

I think one of the items in the Shrine is a magic lamp. I think I remember seeing someone say that it was going to be used as an artifact in a future episode, but it never got used.

While we're on the topic of golden treasures, was The Golden Cup of Belshazzar one of those treasures? I could have sworn I would see a Golden Cup in the background in some episodes.

Shame they never did..."Aladdin's Magical Lamp" would have made a great episode. :P

I wouldn't be surprised if the producers had re-painted Galileo's Cannonball to be the Silver Cannonball of Grandy Nanny. The Trojan Horseshoe and the Silver Horseshoe of Butch Cassidy were probably one and the same, too.

And of course, the Collar of Davy Crockett was nothing more than a pendant of life.

Wasn't The Silver Cannonball of Grandy Nanny bigger though? Same with The Leopard Skin Cloak of Annie Oakley.

I'm not positive about the Leopard-Skin Cloak, but the Silver Cannonball does look bigger than Galileo's Cannonball...

You know, there is some other golden object in the Shrine near the magic lamp that I can't quite make out. I need to watch some of the earlier season one runs again to see if I can make something out.  :mrgreen:

How about another artifact that was used in a certain temple game in season 1?

The Milk Bucket of Freydis:




The buckets from the slippery blue slide game:

It's kind of hard to tell if the buckets from the slide game have handles. However, those buckets and the Milk Bucket both look identical. If there were no handles on the slide game buckets and one of those buckets was used in the Milk Bucket run, then maybe a handle was added to the Milk Bucket to make it easier to carry out of the temple.

I wouldn't put it pass the producers to reuse props from older episodes to save money. But good find, those buckets do look very identical. I am sure there are more artifacts that were reused from the show. I need to keep a keen eye out for them.  :mrgreen:

You know, after thinking about it, could that skull be the same skull that was used in the Tomb of the Headless Kings in season 3? I think it might be.
Title: Re: Re-use of artifact props
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on September 05, 2011, 08:54:44 PM
I don't think so. The Headless King skull looked more rusted up. That skull looks a little too shiny. I wonder why they never used some of those jewels as artifacts.

You know, while rewatching some of the season three episodes, I noticed that props from the past seasons can be seen lying around the set. For example, you can see:

-- One of the Gargoyle Head in the Pit of the Pendulum at the top of the wall. It is spewing out fog from the top of hte set.
--In the Room of the Secret Password, one of the golden idols from the Room of the Golden Idols can be seen laying around.

I wonder what other old props they left around during that season.  :mrgreen:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't The Plumed Headdress of Cosa Rara used as the headdress for one of the temple guards? They kind of look identical to me. They both have colorful feathers on them.
Title: Re: Re-use of artifact props
Post by: Purple Parrots Fan on October 06, 2011, 03:25:57 PM
I don't know about that, the temple guard feather colors are much darker:




The feathers on Cosa Rara and (another example I threw in) Nzinga have much brighter feathers.


Title: Re: Re-use of artifact props
Post by: The Red Jaguars on October 06, 2011, 03:33:08 PM
Yeah, I don't think the Plumed Headdress and the temple guard's headdress were the same. The temple guard's headdress looked more thicker and less colorful.

I wonder if the Trojan Horseshoe and the Silver Horseshoe of Butch Cassidy are the same though?

Before the temple run in the Comet-Embroidered Flag, when they are showing the prizes, the radio is on top of one of the golden idols
