The Sith shop at Toys "R" Us

Shoppers attending today's Grand Opening of Toys "R" Us, Exeter, were greeted by some of George Lucas' most memorable creations from his Star Wars and Indiana Jones sagas.



Indiana Jones, Lord Darth Vader and Stormtroopers outside the newest Toys "R" Us store in the UK. The UK Garrison of the 501st Legion was on hand to supply some official Star Wars razzle-dazzle in the aid of charity.

Inside the store there were bargains to be had. For example up to 50% off video games and consoles. However, I left the store without any bounty!

With the start of the gift giving season only weeks away. Toys "R" Us couldn't have opened at a better time! Despite the economic recession, I wouldn't bet against this destination store's success.

Suffice to say that the 'Force' was strong with the opening event and a geek like me was in his element!
