Life Sized X-Wing Fighter Touches Down at Southern Cross Station

Written for Broadsheet

A “galaxy far, far away” got a little closer on Thursday morning when a full-size Star Wars X-Wing Fighter appeared at Southern Cross Station.

“Size matters not,” said Jedi master Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back. In this case, the little green guy was wrong, The 1:1 replica caused a peak-hour stir when it took over the corner of Spencer and Collins Streets.

Passers-by got a chance to climb into the space ship’s cockpit.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi – the eighth film in the main saga – opens next week.
