'May the Toys Be With You' - vintage Star Wars exhibition at the Beaney Museum in Canterbury

Post by ChristianC on Mon Dec 14, 2015 1:53 pm

I've been meaning to post this for a while. A really cool initiative by the Beaney Museum in Canterbury in the south-east of the U.K; who are currently hosting a free exhibition of vintage Star Wars toys; aptly named 'May the Toys Be With You.' The exhibition kicked off on 5th December and will going right through to 6th March 2016.

What is even cooler is that the toys at the exhibition are sourced from the collection of vintage collector Matt Fox; known more widely on the forums as Bonsai_Tree_Ent. Matt is responsible for possibly one of the funniest and most educational loose figure limelights I've ever seen. Check it below.

Welcome on board, Matt. welcome

It must be fun for a vintage collector to organize an exhibition like this.
I am sure you will receive nice feedback from the audience. It must be great to watch.

Did you also display and describe some of your variants?
