Star Wars Collectibles – For the Ultimate Collector

Star Wars Ep VII: The Force Awakens is the all-time box office leader here in the states and ranks #3 (for now) worldwide.  Chances are you saw it in the theater at least once and own a copy of it already. Like the rest of us nerds, you might even own some collectible figures, shirts or other merchandise from the film. Now, are you ready to take your collection to the next level?

Thanks to the great questions asked by some of our friends on the latest Nerd Fu Persicope, I found out about some new, super-high-end props from Disney/Star Wars and Propshop.

Star Wars Collectibles: Ultimate Studio Edition

Below are a few images of the props, but I strongly urge you to visit the official website for more information & maybe even a purchase.

 

The official description, taken from an article by Dan Brooks on StarWars.com:

“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.”

 

Propshop: Behind the Scenes

There is also an amazing video, featuring some of the designers at Propshop.  From design to delivery, see how these expert craftsmen and women create props virtually identical to those seen on-screen in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

  1. Those are awesome, my three year old lays back in his car seat and says “ahh I got all blood like a stormtrooper” but for the price I’ll throw some paint on his little stormtrooper mask and he’ll be just as impressed 😉
