Syfy's quirky dramatic comedy Warehouse 13 comes to an end after five seasons this May and to mark the occassion the NBC Universal Experience exhibit at Universal Studios Hollywood had this selection of screen-used props from the show on display on April 15, 2014.

The series which started in July 2009 and was a mix of ideas from The X-Files and Raiders of the Lost Ark, and followed U.S. Secret Service Agents 'Myka Bering' (Joanne Kelly) and 'Pete Lattimer' (Eddie McClintock) assigned to a super-secret warehouse facility in South Dakota which houses supernatural artifacts from history and mythology.

In addition the 'Joshua's Trumpet' made from a ram's horn from the season three episode '3...2...1...', which could disintegrate objects with sound waves, the exhibit also had this 'Aztec Bloodstone' from the pilot episode.

This ceremonial stone from 15th century South America could put victims in a daze and cause them to seek a virgin sacrifice.

One of the most interesting props in my mind is 'Hatshepsut's Golden Beehive' prop which featured in season three's 'Queen for the day'. This small golden beehive apparently belonged to the first female Pharaoh of Egypt, who used it to control human 'drones' with the pheromones of real honey bees.

Also on display was the Pocket 'Ping' device used by tech-wiz hacker 'Claudia Donovan' (Allison Scagliotti) in the season four episode, 'An Evil Within', whilst beside it is a fanged mouth used in the Aztec Bloodstone artifact.

If you like these props, you may also like these original costumes and props from Syfy's Eureka series too.
