Some of the most instantly recognisable designs in film history are on show at the Dubai Mall in anticipation of a major festival of popular culture which takes place at the weekend.
The helmets and weapons from the Star Wars series have been loaned by Omar Al Bahiti who has a huge collection of memorabilia from the movies.
They include helmet designs created for the Imperial Stormtroopers and Darth Vader, along with the light-sabres used by the Jedi Knights and their enemies.
One helmet is signed by actor Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in three of the films.
The display will be on show at the Middle East Film and Comic Con which is to be held at Dubai World Trade Centre.
