Harrods Exhibit April-May 1983

Postby 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!).

You are continuing to unearth some real treasures here. Thanks for sharing! Perhaps you should do an exhibit yourself!?

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.
