May The Toys Be With You Exhibition

On Jan 22nd 2022, from a galaxy far, far away comes an absolute must see for fans of Star Wars and the silver screen…

One of the UK’s finest collections of vintage Star Wars toys and original cinema posters is going on display in a stunning exhibition brought to you by The Hub.

Back when the movie Star Wars broke box office records in 1977 no one could have predicted that the merchandising would go on to earn even more than the film itself. The toys of Star Wars took the world by storm and became the must-have playthings for an entire generation. From 1977 – 1985 an estimated 300 million action figures were sold, allowing children to re-enact the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo.

May The Toys Be With You is both a celebration of the now highly collectable vintage toy line and also of the iconic design work and art of the Star Wars movies. From X-Wing Fighters to lightsabers, these fantastical designs have fired our imaginations and stamped their place on our cultural landscape. For kids of every generation, this unmissable showing of many rarely seen Star Wars treasures has broken visitor attendance records at museums around the country, and we’re excited for its first visit to Lichfield!
