When we started out creating stuff, we were all a part of this underground replica prop movement. It was kinda like a club and we all just got it. We were making it happen together. All fans with the same passion and a range of different talents, painters, sculptors, mould makers and researchers.  It was a community, with a focus on lineage props and how to replicate them.

In the years since then, this whole scene broke out of the secret groups and closed forums. It’s not mainstream but now you can stumble into the replica world without looking too hard.

This is a new era of Replica Props with an expanding community. We think it’s time to shine a light on what we do and why.

The magic happens in our Manchester studio, it’s great to have people come over and hang out. When you see what we do and why you’ll start to understand what we are all about.

Who we are

ROB

ROB

70’s and 80’s Sci-fi movies and pop culture are a way of life. I trained as a graphic designer then moved into manufacturing and quality assurance. Upon discovering the replica prop community I began using my skills to create replica props and the rest as they say is history.

Simon

Simon

An avid Star Wars collector since 1977 when I picked up my first Star Wars figure, walrus man. I studied fine art and graphic design before building and painting replica props as the ‘S’ in RS.

Paul

Paul

Paul is the daddy in more ways than one. He runs a tight ship and keeps things together. Did I mention the beard? Beauty and the Beast.

It takes teamwork to make the dream work. – Paul’s mantra.

Our admin supremo.

Andrea keeps the orders in order and sends emails around the clock. If you need something it starts here.

Peter

Peter

Pete’s probably built more accurate Stormtroopers than any one else in the world. He’s our armour guy but can build and finish most of the stuff we create. With an eye for detail and pride in his work he never lets us down.

Sean

Sean

Grandad, slow and steady. If the Queen wanted a prop replica Sean would be the man to build it. Let me explain, everything he makes is fit for Buckingham palace, just don’t try and rush him. Sean has a keen interest in politics, but we don’t hold that against him.

Ellis

Ellis

Always half asleep or should that be half awake? Ellis, or Wedge to the rest of the team, builds and finishes stuff.  Wedge is the baby of the team and we don’t let him forget it. When wedge is not building props you will find him gaming.

Becka

Becka

Becka paints and weathers our props. She comes from a Fine Art and Humanities background. Finding the Star Wars prop community via her previous experience with building historical replicas and costumes, along with scale model making and miniatures. She likes all the Star Wars movies, even the new ones.

Daniel

Daniel

Dan’s the man when it comes to moulding and casting. A ‘huge’ Dr Who fan Dan can often be found rubbing down a cyber man.
