In addition we are extremely pleased to announce the return of the Collector Panels too, a series of presentations and talks by members of the collecting community sharing their experience and knowledge on different aspects and areas of their collecting. This will take place upstairs in the Town Hall, an area that has previously not been in use for Farthest From.
If you would like to be part of the schedule and contribute a panel, please do not hesitate to drop a line with submission ideas to sales@allthecoolstuff.co.uk

Furthermore it is our annual charity auction too, a great chance to help raise funds for a worthy cause.

Why not also join us the day before ... AND evening... on Saturday 30th of November for our Christmas Family Fantha Day, hosted by Fantha Tracks.
Saturday evening is the annual town Christmas Light Switch On, the roads close from about 4pm onwards, with all the fun, food and drink all outside in a Christmas Carnival.

For the past 20 shows Farthest From has been the platform for many collectors to meet and share their knowledge and experience within vintage Star Wars collecting.
The opportunity each show affords fans and collectors is priceless, forging friendships that will last a lifetime.

Starting from the 21st show onwards will be "Farthest From Grail's", an opportunity for collectors to see a rarely seen product or group of items on display. A "Grail" will differ from one person to the next, however each one, in their own way, will be something rarely seen from one show to the next.

Introducing ... "Farthest From Legends"

Bringing back on of the most requested elements of the show, "Farthest From Legends" are the schedule of presentations at each event.

Good news/ bad news
Good news, here are the details of the first panel announced.
Bad news, it's me presenting it.

Farthest From Legends - The Adventures Of Luke Skyjacker.

Having exploded in popularity around the same time, Star Wars and video gaming are cultural phenomenons in their own right. Star Wars itself hugely influenced video game play and every arcade, home video game company wanted capitalize on the demand. At a time of ungoverned rapid development and growth, some borrowed a little more from Star Wars than others. Recognizable shapes and themes influenced some game play and artwork, however in others there were outright copyright infringements that are incredible by today's standards. This presentation takes a look at an area that has been largely undocumented by Star Wars collecting, and provides an entertaining, insightful look back to the ambiguous days of how Star Wars influenced so many video game titles.

Join us on at the 21st Farthest From Show on Sunday 1st of December to catch this amazing panel.
