THE Force was strong with the Kingfisher Shopping Centre last Saturday, October 5 as it was transformed into every Star Wars’ collectors’ dream.

Thousands from all over the country came to see the biggest Star Wars trading convention in Europe.

The ‘Echo Base Live’ event offered a huge range of vintage and modern collectible items for fans to purchase.

Special guests on the day included Jack McKenzie, Michael Culver, Mike Quinn, Tim Rose and Caroline Blakiston, alongside authors, Daniel Freddie Segovia and Jorge Rodotà.

Fans also had the chance to have photo opportunities with life-sized prop displays of a Wampa, Yoda, a selection of droids and a speeder bike.
