Demand for lineage replica props originated from closed forums and ‘underground’ fan clubs but in the last few years RS Prop Masters has found itself at the forefront of a high-growth sector and is now leading the charge to bring lineage props to a wider audience.
“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.”
Rob McCormick, business founder RS Prop Masters
Its existing website had become out-of-date and cumbersome to use, so RS Prop Masters got in touch with FIG to create a new site that told the story of the passion and craftsmanship behind the business, emphasised the lineage of its props and included slick ecommerce functionality.
Differentiating between RS Prop Masters fully finished commission suits and its increasingly popular ‘self build’ kits was also vital as this clarification had been a source of confusion for customers previously.
Do. Or do not. There is no try…
We immediately set about our mission. With up to 75 different products being offered on the site at any one time, ease of navigation was essential. Moving away from a traditional grid format, we introduced new feature sliders and scrolling functions to enable customers to see products in a character carousel before drawing them through a Star Wars fan’s dream of accessories and associated products.

Rob and his team think the new site is a force to be reckoned with:
“FIG’s digital insight has ensured that not only does the site achieve everything we asked for, it also includes features that mean it will meet our future needs too. The interest in Star Wars is growing stronger year on year and we now have everything we need in our online armoury to take advantage of it.”
