FANS of the film Star Wars will be in for a treat when an exhibition that has broken attendance records at museums across the country arrives in Wimborne.
One of the UK’s finest collections of vintage Star Wars toys and original cinema posters is going on display an at the Museum of East Dorset tomorrow (Saturday, October 14).
The Star Wars movie broke box office records in 1977 but merchandising earned even more with an estimated 300 million action figures sold between 1977-85, allowing children to re-enact the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo.
The May The Toys Be With You exhibition is a celebration of the collectable vintage toys and the iconic design work and art of the Star Wars movies.
The exhibition runs until April 20, 2024.
