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