Science fiction and Stormtrooper fans on the on the hunt for Halloween costumes or exclusive Stormtrooper themed gifts have been given the countdown to invade Boxpark Shoreditch next week – for the launch of an Original Stormtrooper pop-up store.

Hosted by Shepperton Design Studios, the pop-up will run for five days, from Tuesday 22nd until Sunday 27th October, and aims to showcase a new range of Stormtrooper branded merchandise and exclusive products you won’t find anywhere else – from Stormtrooper halloween costumes, to gifts such as themed blue tooth speakers, celebration cakes, whiskey decanters, and even cheeseboards.

Andrew Ainsworth of Shepperton Design Studios – the prop-maker responsible for creating the Stormtrooper for the first Star Wars film in 1976 – will be signing collectable prints, as well as selling Helmets, Blasters, and full Stormtrooper battle armour at the pop-up’s late night opening on Thursday 24th October, signing from 5.00pm.

You’ll also get an exclusive sneak peek of the brand new Super Loot limited-edition Original Stormtrooper Mystery Box which you can pre-order in time for Christmas delivery at the store or online.

Andrew won the rights to the original Stormtrooper design after a lengthy legal battle that afforded him the unique position to recreate costumes and products based on the original Stormtrooper moulds.

Super Loot monthly subscription boxes are aimed at anyone who loves and lives the geeky life. Just choose a plan to match your interests and the company deliver awesome movie and gaming accessories straight to your door, saving you time and money on sourcing them individually.
