Gallery label
A bright centre to the universe The galaxy of the Star Wars films is enormous, and it has a lot of characters that have been made into toys. It isn’t just the star players who are duplicated in miniature. There are many toy background figures who don’t even speak in the films, like FX-7 or an Ugnaught. This variety creates a universe of play possibilities. [Young V&A, Imagine Gallery, Small Worlds, long object label](01/07/2023)
