So, I was recently watching a youtube vid.
A Star Wars fan had bought a replica lightsaber, screen accurate down to the last detail, made from the same materials as the real thing. (It obviously didn't have a blade!)
But it looked real in every other way, right size, etc.
The guy bought it second hand from e-bay for $150. I think it was sold for $400 brand new in 2005 but these items can be worth thousands today.
I obviously couldn't afford that but I do own a couple of replicas.
First off, last year I bought a Freddy glove from Chris Grantner for $65. It's not screen accurate but it's made up of the same materials as the real thing - brass back plate & ringlets, copper finger stalls and steel knives (dull).
^^^ This isn't my glove - mine has slightly darker leather. ^^^
Each one is hand made, not mass-produced. I think Chris Grantner's gloves are the cheapest hand made gloves (some made by other people are virtually 100% screen accurate and sell for hundreds of dollars, even $1000).
I also own a part one sweater from Margret Olschewski.
^^^ Mine's identical to this. ^^^
I wish I owned a few more replica props but it's not possible, given my financial situation.
you own any replica props or, even better, any actual props?
