Harrods Exhibit April-May 1983

Post by s1d0w » Sat Feb 02, 2019 11:24 am

Found these in the old scrapbook.
I remember going twice. In April they had Darth Vader visit and the Command Satellite set up. In May they had an exhibit of costumes, photos and a speeder bike on display. They also had the trailer on a loop.
Does anyone have any memories of this?

Wow! Thanks for sharing the pics, you've provided a real time capsule of the display. I am presuming they were all the screen used costumes too (Barada!).

I’ve shared this story before, but as a 7 year old I went to Harrords with my mum and Dad and saw a Lando Skiff figure for the very first time. I remember my mum and dad buying it for me after a few tears.

I still love the feeling / wonder of that figure. It was brilliant.

Thanks for sharing the pictures and getting me to revisit those wonderful memories.
