Original Stormtrooper set to invade Box Park, Shoreditch and you’re invited!

Original Stormtrooper is set to take over an area of Box Park in Shoreditch, London in full force this October to showcase a new range of Stormtrooper branded merchandise and exclusive products.

The 6-day pop-up shop event hits the ground running from Tuesday 22nd October to Sunday 27th October 2019, between 11 am – 7 pm – and our awesome Super Looters are all invited!

Meet the maker of the original Stormtrooper

Plus, you definitely don’t want to miss the late-night opening till 8 pm on Thursday as part of a special appearance from Andrew Ainsworth, who will be at the store from around 5pm for autograph signings. 

Andrew Ainsworth of Shepperton Design Studios is the maker of the original Stormtrooper armour, who supplied George Lucas with the classic outfits featured in the first Star Wars movie. Andrew, who still makes his iconic suits and helmets from his Shepperton Studios, won a monumental ruling to use his Stormtrooper brand as the original producer. Andrew has been working with Golden Goose Licensing since 2015 and together with some great companies they have developed an iconic range of Original Stormtrooper branded merchandise.

“We are excited about the future of the licensing programme. When we first worked on the Stormtrooper costumes for the first film in the series, we never dreamed that people would be buying products featuring our iconic design nearly 40 years later.”

A sample of the growing range of Original Stormtrooper products already available across the UK.

Now you have the opportunity to see these and other brand new products before anyone else…. plus have the chance of meeting Andrew in the flesh. So, if you’re kicking around London from the 22nd October then pop in, check out the new products, pick up some epic goodies and say hello to the team.
