A Stormtrooper Pop-Up Shop Opens At Shoreditch Boxpark This Week

Here's some shopping news that'll make your Kessel run with anticipation. A Stormtrooper pop-up is opening in Shoreditch.

Head to Boxpark Shoreditch this week (22-27 October 2019), to get your hands on Original Stormtrooper merchandise. The company, based in Twickenham, produces replica masks using moulds from Star Wars: A New Hope, and is fronted by Andrew Ainsworth, who designed the Stormtrooper armour back in the 70s.

It says "Padme, I'd give my right arm for you."

We're not entirely sure what products will be on offer in the pop-up. Besides helmets, the Original Stormtrooper website also vends keyrings, t-shirts, mugs and even a cheeseboard. Want a Star Wars bottle opener? The force is strong in this one.

"Ah, happy days."

Just don't think of trash compactors, when you step into the tiny shipping-container-turned-shop.
