A long time ago (well, exactly 40 years) in a continent far, far away (well, North America)…Star Wars was released! Yes, this cultural phenomenon is 40 years old today, and what better way to celebrate by looking at some of the coolest bits of Star Wars merch available to purchase from EMP.co.uk?
We all love a Star Wars t-shirt, sure – and you’ll find a few in the list below – but did you know that thanks to EMP you can pretty much stock your kitchen, cover your walls and adorn your surfaces entirely in Star Wars goodies?
