Disney and Lucasfilm have announced “Star Wars Collectibles: Ultimate Studio Edition,” the first of a whole new line of highly accurate and detailed “Star Wars” prop replicas from the films.
Made at Propshop in Pinewood Studios where filming took place, this uses 3D printing technology and the original digital data collected during the production process of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” to produce replicas virtually identical to those seen on screen. Available initially in the U.S. only, purchases can be made at StarWarsUltimateStudioEdition.com.
The initial offering includes Darth Vader’s melted helmet, Rey’s lightsaber hilt, FN-2187 Stormtrooper helmet, Kylo Ren’s helmet and lightsaber hilt, Poe Dameron’s X-Wing helmet, Rey’s staff, and Chewbacca’s Bowcaster. Each Star Wars prop replica item is a limited production piece due to the 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. Check out videos about those creations below:
