I started The Force Forum in October of 2017 in an attempt to simplify this crazy world of prop collecting. I started to build my personal collection in 2016 and quickly found how difficult finding the products I wanted could be. I drudged through the online forums and groups while attempting to find the perfect product which often left me more confused than when I started. These online communities can be ruthless if you’re not “in the know” so I decided to do something for those of us that don’t have hours on end to spend doing research online.
After building relationships with a number of prop makers we started having conversations around “how do we sell more of their products”, “how do we market their work and help them scale their business?” These artists are some of the best in the world, but most aren’t marketers or sales people. I’ve spent my career marketing and selling products in-store and online for some of the biggest brands in the world, this was the perfect chance to help the community and these friends I’ve made in this hobby.
Along with a good friend and independent prop builder we designed The Force Forum as a co-op to bring products from around the world into a centralized location to make it easy and quick to find what you want. Simply put, we do the leg work for you. We find the prop makers, find the products, make sure they’re of the best quality and negotiate the best price. You’re going to find products from the United States, Canada, England, Germany, South America, Russia…literally all over the world. Some products ship from our U.S. based warehouse and other products will ship directly from the prop maker so shipping time and cost will vary based on those details. It’s this unique business model that makes The Force Forum so unique.
Regardless of whether you’re just starting to build your collection or you’re a season vet looking for that “grail piece” we can help. Our friendly staff and customer support team will help lead you in the right direction regardless of budget or experience level.
Lastly, there are several products on our site but if you don’t find what you’re looking for let us know. Odds are we have it or can find it for you through our network of prop makers around the world. Want something completely custom, a crazy one-off piece that only exists in the depths of your imagination? We can handle that as well. Drop us a note and we’ll be happy to help.
Please have a look around the site and “May The Force Be With You.”
