Force Friday Midnight Event Report, Toyworld Wellington
One more report from the recent Force Friday midnight events, this time with photos from Wellington.
At 12:01am on September 4th, Force Friday officially rolled around – and with it, our first chance to purchase official merchandise from The Force Awakens. The Ballance Street Toyworld put on a fantastic ‘Midnight Madness’ event for those of us in the Wellington CBD. Attendance was high, and it didn’t take long for a sizable line of avid fans to form outside.
Despite the large crowds, everyone was incredibly respectful and polite. No-one hogged the shelves, and it seems that everyone managed to find most – if not all – of what they were after. Guest appearances by Darth Vader and a Mandalorian Warrior helped build atmosphere, and a few spot discounts (including 25% off 3 3/4″ figures) made the night an even more satisfying one.
Special thanks goes to my partner, who snapped the above photos while I excitedly trawled through the shelves!
