A video has been released showing the making of some ultra cool Star Wars: The Force Awakens Ultimate Studio Edition props made by a company that actually worked on the props for the movie itself. These collectibles include replicas of Darth Vader’s damaged helmet, Rey’s staff, and Finn’s blood-marked stormtrooper helmet.
If you’re a Star Wars fanatic who loves to purchase collectibles and prop replicas, you’re going to want to get your hands on these bad boys. They’re about as good as you can get apart from actually getting your hands on official props. But unfortunately, not many fans will easily be able to afford them.
You can find more information, including where to buy them, and see the video of some of them being made below.
Star Wars Launches Most Authentic Line of Prop Replicas Ever Created!
Star Wars Collectibles: Ultimate Studio Edition offers fans a completely new way of experiencing “˜Star Wars: The Force Awakens’
Disney and Lucasfilm today launched Star Wars Collectibles: Ultimate Studio Edition bringing an unprecedented level of authenticity to prop replica products for fans. Made to order by propmakers at Propshop in Pinewood Studios using digital data collected during filming of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the production process marries cutting edge 3D printing technology with master craftsmanship to produce replicas virtually identical to those seen onscreen. Available initially in the U.S., starwarsultimatestudioedition.com is the exclusive location to purchase these products.
The initial offering from the Star Wars Collectibles line features eight prop replicas from Star Wars: The Force Awakens including Darth Vader’s melted helmet, Rey’s lightsaber hilt, FN-2187 Stormtrooper helmet and more. Each replica item is a limited production piece due to the high level of craftsmanship required to create them.
These made-to-order replicas will come with custom display pedestals, packed in branded wooden crates that are inspired by the real crates used to ship the film props. Each one is custom built to accommodate the shape of the replica inside. www.starwarsultimatestudioedition.com
Now the bad news: all of these will set you back over $1,000. The Vader helmet alone will set you back $3,500 big ones, and only 500 of them are available.
