Cantina Space Bar

The world famous Cantina Bar Manchester is an amazing reproduction of the Cantina Space Bar that appeared in the Star Wars saga. Put yourself in the position of Han Solo with this recreation.

TEMPLE OF GOZER - GHOSTBUSTERS  DISPLAY

For the Love of Sci-Fi brings you the Temple of Gozer Ghostbusters display, featuring the fabulous Bermuda Rhombus as Gozer. Free FX included for photo ops

FX MODEL MINIATURES - Star Wars

FX Model Miniatures are passionate about Star Wars models. They spend all their time and money on vintage model kits to replicate the original studio scale Star Wars models in every detail. A member of the group has even started his own paint company replicating the original paints ILM used for the models. Hundreds of detailed models will be displayed at for the Love of Sci-Fi, and we are honoured to have this wonderful display touch down with us in 2018!

T-70 X-WING FIGHTER

Building full size prop and set recreations is one of the key features of our event. The T-70 Resistance X-Wing Fighter was the Starship used by Poe Dameron in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This is a HUGE build and our most ambitious yet. At almost 41ft long this will be even bigger than the original X-Wing that was built in 2015. 

T-34  LANDSPEEDER

The T-34 Landspeeder was a model of civilian Landspeeder manufactured by SoroSuub Corporation and available during the Galactic Civil War between the Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic. This iconic vehicle from the first Star Wars movie is a must see for any fan of the Star Wars Saga.

TIE ADVANCED

Last seen spinning out of control at the end of Star Wars A New Hope when knocked off course by another TIE fighter, the Dark Lord of the Siths' TIE Advanced X1 is a most impressive vessel.

Most kids who grew up in the 70's, 80's and 90's will fondly remember the Kenner and Hasbro toy versions of this ship but they won't be remotely prepared for how menacing this vehicle is at full size.

The nostalgia will be very strong this December!

JOHNNY 5

Started in 2016 using plans based from the original Johnny 5, this project has grown from a small hobby project to a massively popular replica robot of a beloved icon. Using the 3D printing platform to create each of the hundreds if not thousands of parts that are needed to construct his body and a variety of electronics to bring him to life. As time goes on his abilities will increase until he realises his full potential.

He is six feet tall, his tracks are fully motorised so he can move around, he can turn his head, his eyes light up and change colours, his eye flaps are motorised and can open and close and also have multiple different expressions as he has in the movie.

The small radar on his head also raises and turns and he can speak, using either quotes from the original movies or he can speak. When he speaks his lips lights also light up as they did in the movie.

r2d2

A fully functional R2 unit will be entertaining the crowds at the event. Free photo opportunity.

KITT

KITT is the short name for the Knight Industries Two Thousand, which appeared in the original TV series of Knight Rider. KITT is an artificially intelligent electronic computer module in the body of a highly advanced, very mobile, 1982 Pontiac Firebird and was voiced by William Daniels.
