Ultimate Studio Edition Collectibles from Propshop
Today it was announced that Propshop, in collaboration with Lucasfilm, is now making official prop replicas of its work from The Force Awakens available to collectors in a new line called Star Wars Collectibles Ultimate Studio Edition Wave one is a treasure trove of memorable gear from the film: FN-2187 (i.e., Finn) Stormtrooper Helmet (with blood streaks!), Kylo Ren Helmet, Poe Dameron X-wing Helmet, Darth Vader Helmet (Melted), Rey Staff, Chewbacca Bowcaster, Kylo Ren Lightsaber Hilt, and Rey Lightsaber Hilt. Propshop is making them the same exact way it made the original props: 3D prints of the final output made for the film, all hand-painted by the original prop makers. There’s never been a program like it. “When you’re making the real movie props, you’re concerned about the design and the communication of that,” says Enright. “The link between a prop replica for me and the real item is detail. These prop replicas are the real thing. You could put the real thing next to it, and you could touch it and you could feel it and you would not know [which was the replica]. That’s because we, basically, have done it the same way.”
A full gallery of the available collectibles along with prices is available on the official Propshop online store.
