A BB-8 Great show!

21st April 2016

After the excitement last year with our Star Wars inspired collection being released in celebration of the new film The Force Awakens, we were delighted to feel the Force of the dark side again! Celebrating the release of the film on DVD and Blu-ray, we teamed up with Lucasfilm and the GREAT Britain campaign for this BB-8 Great exhibition.

British artists, designers and members of the cast were let loose to design their own version of the BB-8 droid in aid of charity. Actors such as John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Anthony Daniels and Simon Pegg put their own spin on the spinning astromech droid. We were excited to contribute our own colourful creation from a parallel universe. The EJS BB-8 was inspired by the lush plant and animal life from a fantasy planet. We headed to the opening night to explore a droid collection which was out of this world.
