    #Maythe4thSG Custom Stormtrooper Helmet Show in Singapore to Benefit Charity

    May the 4th is known worldwide as a day when we celebrate all that is great about Star Wars. In Singapore, they are throwing a custom show using the 5" Stormtrooper helmet by Imagine Nation Design Studios in the Philippines as a base for customs. Sales will benefit the Willing Hearts charity.

    Singapore – 23 April 2014 – May The Fourth Be With You. Maythe4th.SG presents Singapore’s first fan-driven Star Wars Day – May The 4th SG

    May The 4th SG is the inaugural celebration of the legendary film series, books, toys and culture of Star Wars, conceived out of the fervent passion and love a group of Star Wars fans share for the epic film series. By fans for the fans, May The 4th SG presents a myriad of activities including Star Wars documentary screening and special appearances by 501st Legion Singapore Garrison and FightSaber Singapore. 

    Expect nothing short of epic from the programme line-up that will reminiscence, revive and honour the 37 year-old film series. The line-up includes a display of Star Wars toys by Hasbro Singapore, “Once-Upon-A-Stormtrooper” fan fiction contest, storytelling and ‘live’ doodling sessions by the artists from Band of Doodlers, the very first documentary screening in Singapore of Plastic Galaxy: A History of Star Wars Toys by Brian Stillman, X-Wing Miniatures tabletop game demo, workshops and activities for kids and fanatics. 

    Attendees will also be treated to a performance and workshop session by FightSaber Singapore, South East Asia’s premier lightsaber performance troupe, and the exclusive sale of custom stormtrooper helmets by local and overseas artists where all proceeds from sale of the helmets will go towards helping the less privileged. 

    Catherine Lim, brand manager of Hasbro Singapore says, “I am definitely bringing my kids to support the event.” Event organisers from Maythe4th.SG, Hansen Khoo and Jeffrey Koh of FLABSLAB, promise that audiences will be seeing some Star Wars items for the first time at the event and this is just a lead-up to a bigger and highly anticipated event in 2015 for the new Star Wars movie in the second half of 2015. 

     Supported by the National Library Board of Singapore, May The 4th will be held at the Jurong Regional Library on May 4th 2014, Sunday from 11 am to 7 pm. The opening ceremony will see 501st Legion Singapore Garrison, the largest garrison in South East Asia, grace the grounds in welcoming guests to the celebration.
