It seems like you can’t go anywhere these days without seeing anything about Star Wars, arguably the most beloved movie franchise on the planet, especially now that we’re at peak Star Wars: The Force Awakens season and only a few days removed from seeing Episode 7 hit local theaters. And in case you haven’t gotten your Star Wars fix yet, Globe Telecom has put together the country’s largest Star Wars fair at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.

Globe has put together the country’s largest Star Wars fair at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig, featuring collectibles and merchandise from Star Wars licencees.

Located at the Bonifacio High Street Central amphitheater, the Globe-Star Wars Galactic Celebration features game booths, as well as collectibles and retail merchandise from various Star Wars licencees, including Hot Toys, Funko, Sphero, Folded and Hung, and Havianas (yes, the flip-flops brand). Items from Globe’s Gen3 electronics store are also on sale. Admission is free and open to the public through December 13.

Perhaps the biggest attraction of all is the Star Wars: Battle Pod arcade-style shooter, which recreates the most iconic battles from the original Star Wars trilogy. It’s also the most expensive arcade game ever made, retailing for as much as $100,000, or roughly P4.5 million pesos.
