These are the best Star Wars prop replicas you can buy

Since Star Wars mania has died down in the months since The Force awoke, fans of the franchise will no doubt be feeling some serious withdrawal symptoms.

Luckily, there’s now a very expensive way to deal with such an ailment.

Disney and Lucasfilm have released a new line of Star Wars prop replicas, branded the ‘Ultimate Studio Edition’.

Made by the same team behind The Force Awakens’ actual props, the new range includes such desirable pieces as Kylo Ren’s helmet, Darth Vader’s melted headpiece, and Finn’s bloodstained Stormtrooper helmet.

The props have been produced using high-res 3D digital scans and 3D printing, which means you’ll be getting as close to the original items as possible with these replicas.

Predictably, the new collectibles don’t come cheap.

For Darth’s mangled helmet you’ll have to pay $3,500, while Kylo’s headpiece is going for $2,000, and Finn’s headgear for $1,750.

What’s more, you’ll only be able to buy one of these meticulously recreated beauties if you happen to live in the US – even though they’re being produced at Buckinghamshire’s Pinewood Studios.

Bowcaster Star Wars

If you are lucky enough to live state-side, you’ll have to act fast if you want to get your hands on the Vader or Finn helmet as only 500 of each are being produced.

Aside from the highly detailed helmet recreations, the range includes lightsaber hilts and a replica of Chewie’s Bowcaster.

If you’ve got a few grand lying around, there’s no better way to tide yourself over until the next Star Wars instalment lands later this year.
