May the force be with you as you tackle your holiday shopping…

The Dubai Mall has just unveiled a first-of-its-kind Star Wars exhibit, featuring more than 40 life-size figures.

Launched as part of the mall’s festive campaign, Star Wars The Exhibit will be on display in the Grand Atrium until December 30.

Fans will be able to see characters such as Darth Vader, Boba Fett, K-2SO, death troopers, and an army of stormtroopers.

Each figure was hand-assembled by California-based toy company Sideshow. The project took six months to complete, and is the biggest and most significant display of Sideshow’s Star Wars figures in the world.

To celebrate the opening of the exhibit on Saturday, local members of the 501st Legion – the international organisation of Star Wars fans – marched through the mall dressed in costume replicas of their favourite Star Wars villains.
