Torquay - May The Toys Be With You - June 17th - Sept 3rd

Star Wars is coming to the 'English Riviera' on Saturday June 17th. They are having an opening event with the 501st in attendance, Star Wars virtual reality, Atari vintage arcade to game on, movie posters and memorabilia, and of course lots and lots of lovely vintage, including many rare and unusual pieces from around the world.

Anyone in the South-West this summer I really hope you can attend, should make a good family visit.

We had our annual family in Torquay for years when I was a kid.
Would love to go back, and this makes it even better.

This was really good, amazing collection, saw some stuff I've never actually seen before which was really cool. Recommend going if your within a couple of hours. The Hoth display was really good, early bird set, full set of Kenner 12 backs. :shock:

Thanks for posting on here as well, made my summer. :D

I'm about a hour away from Torquay, so don't know the place very well. Seems the same as alsways, I would usually avoid places like this in August, but I couldn't miss this exhibition!

Thanks for the kind comments boys. There was a visitors book at Torquay Museum and I noticed some familiar names and reference to SWFUK in there.

Some quite frankly, bizzarro comments too, I've made a little video compilation of them. I can't post vids on here, but it's on the facebook page if you want to have a chuckle...

Yeah was really good, I referenced the forum in the guest book. I can imagine it being a mission packing all that up, how long did it take.

It was a full day for 3 people. Setting it up is a lot more fun than taking it down!
