As far as I'm aware these are the first 3D-printed Star Wars vintage 3.75 accessories to become commercially available. They're printed by Prometheus Rising Studios, an already established printer of action figure accessories. I've brightened up the photos below from their originals to pick out the texture. As you can see these are thankfully some distance away from originals, and kudos to PRS for marking each accessory with an 'R'. Close up they shouldn't fool anyone but still worth a mention here and later on the main site too.

I don't know of any others but I am glad that the handles have that empty R carved in. Seems these might be good for custom makers.

I remembered a 3D printed blockade runner from the diecast Star Destroyer- and look who it is : https://prometheusrising.net/2014/01/07/prhi-blockade-runner/


Printing in 'highest' definition to get a smooth finish is expensive/time consuming, alternatively they can use heated acetone to take the 'grainy' finish away but that takes away detail as well. If only all reproductions looked that 'shit'!!!

It's still early days. Maybe 3DP will eventually become better and cheaper. At the moment this current lot are selling at around 10 USD for a sprue of 4 affraid Not cheap.

Better than the guy in Mexico making an effort to deceive. At least these guys seem to have some integrity.
