The Force Awakens (in the South)
It's that time of the year – no, not quite Christmas but the release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. Unless you've been hiding under a rock, the merchandising unit of Star Wars must have gotten to you somehow. SMRT, Subway, Nestlé, Covergirl – the list of brands looking to tie in with Disney and LucasFilms’ biggest franchise just grows with every passing day.
If you’re looking to actually get some legit merchandise though, VivoCity’s 370 sq/metre exhibition is sure to fascinate the Star Wars fans. Photo opportunities are endless with the ten life size Stormtroopers positioned at the entrance as well as a record-breaking LEGO wall mural.
Merchandise-wise, think the largest collection of Funko POP Star Wars, enough Kotobukiya statues to put the Skywalker ranch to shame as well as LEGO Star Wars collectibles that you’re going to want to get your hands on.
May the Force be with you (and may your wife have mercy when she sees the bills).
The Star Wars: The Force Awakens Atrium Event at VivoCity will run till the 20th of December and is free admission for all.
