Collecting is a big part of Star Wars. Ever since the earliest merchandise, fought over by an astute, George Lucas, from 20th Century Fox was release by Kenner in the US and Palitoy in the UK plus many others around the world we want it.
Since 1977/78 I have bought, been bought and gifted many items from across the range of items figures, vehicles, creatures to toothbrushes, flannels and earphones.
Although not every item I own, I have uploaded many images to the Collection section of the website. There you can look at Prequel / Original / Sequel trilogy items.
Some of you may have these items, some you may not but, my hope is you enjoy them.
Over the past few days/weeks there has been a lot of filming activity for the Star Wars Show Andor.
The Show is going to be a prequel to the film Rogue One, and tells the tales of Cassian Andor and his journey to the Rebellion.
Many places in the UK appear to have been used for filming this series, which is actually a little different to the other TV show – The Mandalorian, which was mostly filmed in The Volume at MBS studios, California.
It would appear that this production is traversing the UK and using a lot more “real World” locations to convey Galaxy’s far, far away.
Who would believe that Shoretroopers would end up in Blackpool!
I have put together some information of what I have seen, so far and added Google Maps pinpoints to the Places of filming.
