Hello Fellow Star Wars Fans,

I am a MASSIVE Star Wars from Melbourne Australia. I will be visiting Singapore for 5 days on the 20th of January and was wondering where the best shops and places are for Star Wars items or a Star Wars experience?

Is there anything Star Wars that I will only see in Singapore? I would really love to know as I travel the world and have taken pictures of things which are related to Star Wars.

Anyhow....any information or help anyone can provide would be fantastic. I am especially looking for any place where I can pick up free flyers or paper materials. This is the sort of stuff I collect.

Thanks you everyone. I look forward to some replies.

Brant

You'll be coming during an unusual time of the year - Chinese New Year. The public holidays are on 23 and 24 (Mon, Tue). That said, there's one thing you could do that's fairly unique - visit the site of the Sandcrawler.* That's the new building for Lucasfilm's production house currently located elsewhere on the island. It's still just a construction site with some piling going on (expected to be finished March 2013), so really, there's not much to see. If you take the subway to "one-North", you can take a photo of the locality map that marks the site as "Sandcrawler". Unexciting, but a very unique Star Wars thing. As for their current office, well, security is real tight.

* Go to http://maps.google.com.sg/ and search for "21 Portsdown Road". It's the kite shape just below the pindrop.

Hi Brant,

If you are able to pop by Suntec City on 22 Jan (Sun) at about 11am, I can pass to you a couple of notepads and flyers of the previous Art Of Star Wars Exhibition held in Singapore. Let me know via PM and we'll fix a meeting place within the mall.

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for all the great replies.

I did finally make it to your wonderful country, but I had to cut my trip short and so was only there for 2 days. I didn't really get to see much...and certainly nothing to do with Star Wars. I liked Singapore and really hope to be back when I have holidays again next year.

Again....thank you for all the great replies.

Brant
