Following the recreation of Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace as a pop-up model display last year, the second episode will be recreated at LEGO Star Wars MINILAND on March 1/2.

Fans will also have the opportunity to have a photo taken with a stormtrooper.

All are encouraged to come dressed in costume – and they won’t be alone as there will be experts on hand from the world’s largest Star Wars costume club, the UK Garrison.
