Lucasfilm is bringing the magic of Star Wars: The Force Awakens to the discerning memorabilia collector in an unprecedented way.

Propshop, the company that sculpted and 3D-printed the props used in the movie, will soon begin selling exact replicas of those pieces to fans.

The first phase of Star Wars Collectibles: Ultimate Studio Edition features eight items, including two limited edition helmets, seen in The Force Awakens. There’s Chewbacca’s bowcaster, Kylo Ren and Rey’s lightsabers, Darth Vader‘s melted helmet, Finn’s blood-streaked stormtrooper helmet, Rey’s staff, and Kylo and Poe Dameron’s helmets.

The Vader and Finn helmets are limited-edition items, with Propshop committing to produce only 500 of them.

Given that Propshop is literally recreating movie props down to the most minute possible detail, the price tags—ranging from $1,250 for Rey’s staff to $3,500 for one of the Vader helmets—are fairly reasonable.

“The props will be where they should be,” Ben Crooks, the company’s fabrication manager, says in the video, “and that’s with the fans.”

Amen to that.
