While actual props from the Star Wars movies are pretty limited — and extremely expensive — Lucasfilm is now offering fans the next best thing.
The company unveiled a new line of authentic props today, bringing Star Wars fans one step closer to that galaxy far, far away. Fittingly dubbed the Star Wars Collectibles: Ultimate Studio Edition line, the props are produced by the same team that makes props for the Star Wars films, meaning these replicas are as close to the real deal as you can get.
The initial line of Ultimate Studio Edition offerings is based around Star Wars: The Force Awakens and includes a mix of weapons and costume accessories from the film. If you're in the market for some weaponry, you could purchase Rey's staff or lightsaber hilt, Chewbacca's bowcaster or Kylo Ren's lightsaber hilt. But if you'd rather grab some headgear, you can order Finn's bloody stormtrooper helmet, Kylo Ren's mask, Poe Dameron's X-Wing helmet or the melted helmet of Darth Vader.
These items are the equivalent to film props, so it should come as no surprise that they're pretty pricey. Replicas of Rey's staff and the lightsaber hilts run on the low end at a cost of $1,250. But Darth Vader's melted helmet takes the prize as the most expensive item, sitting pretty at $3,500. Still, these are the highest quality Star Wars replica props being produced, so there's no doubt that plenty of fans will be willing to pay the high prices.
More Star Wars Props On The Way
Thankfully, if you aren't that interested in The Force Awakens, there are plans to add even more props to the Ultimate Studio Edition line. Every month, Lucasfilm will unveil new additions to the line through Disney's YouTube channel, giving fans a taste of what next to expect. While items from upcoming movies are likely to appear, we could also get plenty of classic Star Wars props, like Han Solo's blaster, a Tusken Raider mask or the original stormtrooper helmet.
You can buy your own props from the Star Wars Collectibles: Ultimate Studio Edition line now. What props do you want added to the collection? Let us know in the comments.
