Attic Replicas started as a hobby for Chris when he couldn't satisfy his own need to own these incredibly cool props from his favorite books, movies and television shows. After seeing Star Wars Chris made his first R2D2 inspired droid, he won his elementary school science fair and ended up on the 6 o'clock news. This began Chris's love for making his own toys, games, and memorabilia and over the years he has seen several Hollywood props that were either not available on the open market or way too pricey to be purchased so, he decided to make them himself. Using his many years of working as a commercial printer and graphic artist, Chris soon realized that all of his skills combined nicely when it came to prop-making.
Seeing a strong demand for more affordable replicas of books, toys, games & collectibles Chris decided to focus on ways to simplify the designs and materials to satisfy the average fan on a budget. Real movie props are often not as amazing as they look on screen and how they look on screen is all that matters so why not make great looking items that aren't so expensive and complicated but look amazing on your shelf and satisfy your need to own a piece of your favorite Book, TV show or Movie.
We often state in our listings "Inspired by" rather than "replica" just so we differentiate ourselves from the serious collector looking for the "exact replica" at any price. Our designs are made as alternatives to the extremely expensive "exact replicas", we strive to make our products accurate, affordable and accessible to hobbyists and professional studios alike.
