Disney and Star Wars are selling their own incredible props

Want to get your hands on an authentic Stormtrooper helmet but don’t want to stick your face where many sweaty men have stuck theirs? Fancy swooshing a genuine-looking lightsaber around without the fear three decades of dust accumulated in some loner’s attic might decant from its rusty casing?

Well forget eBay - we bring good news: Disney and Lucasfilm have just joined, ahem, forces to launch 'Star Wars Collectibles: Ultimate Studio Edition', a new line of brand new prop replicas promising to be the most accurate ever created.

Forged by the experts at Pinewood Studios’ Propshop, responsible for all the props seen in The Force Awakens, the process sees high-res advanced 3D-printing technologies used to scan the original designs and re-create the likes of Darth Vader's melted mask and other memorable items from the recent film. According to the makers, these props will be ‘unprecedented in their accuracy’.

Set to be released in limited numbers, annoyingly (if you live on this side of the pond), the pieces will first be available exclusively in the US. But then much like Episode VII itself, this line-up could be worth the wait.

Oh and they're not cheap either.
