Farthest From, The UK Star Wars Retro Toy Show returns next weekend at Fordingbridge Town Hall, bringing a Star Wars tsunami of awesomeness to what is, for the time it’s on, the center of the Star Wars galaxy (well, apart from some small, understated film premier that’s happening in LA a few hours later).

Put simply – you need to be there. Kicking off the festivities on Saturday 9th is the first Fantha Day, and signing at the event are two stars of the saga.

First off is one of the world’s leading concept artists, make-up artists and sculptors, Martin Rezard.

We are extremely please to announce the inclusion of Martin Rezard for our Star Wars Weekender on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th of December. Martin’s work as a concept artist, traditional & digital sculptor and prosthetic make-up artist are legendary and have led him to work on some of the biggest TV & Film productions over the past 20 years.

His credits include feature films such as ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’, ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’, ‘Star Wars: Episode II, Attack of the Clones’, ‘Star Wars: Episode III, Revenge of the Sith’, ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’, ‘Prometheus’, ‘World War Z’, ‘Maleficent’, ‘Thor: The Dark World’, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, ‘The Matrix’ and more, plus TV shows like ‘Farscape’, ‘Doctor Who’, ‘Little Britain’, ‘Torchwood’, ‘Merlin’, ‘Atlantis’ and ‘Game of Thrones’.
