post-6335-0-77741600-1428913356.jpg


Prop Store’s display (booth #1140) at Star Wars Celebration will include never-before exhibited props & costumes from the Prop Store collection, a sneak peek at a number of awesome Star Wars props that will feature in our upcoming Live Auction later this year and an array of rare pieces that will be available for purchase. Attendees will have the chance to hear stories behind the props and costumes from prop experts Stephen Lane and Brandon Alinger and get up close with these amazing pieces of movie history.

Highlights from our collection include Princess Leia’s dress from A New Hope and Han Solo's jacket from The Empire Strikes Back. Celebration-goers will also have the opportunity to purchase Death Star surface pieces from Return of the Jedi, a Death Star reference surface square from A New Hope, signed storyboards from the original trilogy and many more great pieces.

We'll be posting further information and updates on here throughout the week and also on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.

Star Wars Celebration will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center in California between April 16 – 19 – we look forward to seeing you there!

Something really coll with Propstore is that we always "discover" new screen used artifacts. It's a kind of second birth for these movies history pieces.

Would love to see more pictures of the TIE pilot, Stormtooper and Vader's helmets.

I think if I was there I would have spent a good few hours in your booth. Some fantastic pieces. And I would have got another copy of Costumes signed by Brandon. :)

Nice job guys! Totally not a major thing, but the photo you have of Kazanjian and Lucas together is from Raiders. The set in the background is actually the Tannis digs set. :) Hope you guys get a chance to come to New York Comic Con this year!
