Disney teams up with Propshop to create authentic replicas from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens universe. What makes this so special is that Propshop was the company responsible for creating the original props for the film.

Artists were able to take the scan data from the originals, and using cutting edge 3D printing technology, produce master copies.

Fans of the film can now purchase these unique reproductions at the new Star Wars collectible website.


Propshop has been in the business for 23 years creating physical and digital assets for the entertainment industry.
