As a prop collector I know that you need to have quite a substantial reserve of cash put aside to afford any props from the Star Wars universe, I used to own a small one-inch piece of a pyro x-wing and the price that sold for made my eyes water slightly.
Prop collectors are outraged that some pieces from The Force Awakens were destroyed when they could just as easily be shared with the star wars community and to own a piece of movie history.
Disney have heard this call but maybe a few chinese whispers have muddled up it’s context on the way around. Instead of screen used movie props, Disney are now making licesensed prop replica’s. But be warned, they’re not cheap.
Items initially offered include Darth Vader’s burnt helmet, Kylo Ren’s, Poe Dameron and Finn helmets as well as lightsabers, Chewbacca’s bowcaster and Rey’s staff.
“We are continually looking for new ways to extend the storytelling from movies in innovative ways,” said Josh Silverman, executive vice president of global licensing at Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. “We’ve worked hand in hand with the film makers and talented team at Propshop to create a unique product experience for fans and we’re excited to see their reactions to these incredible prop replicas.”
