Star Wars Stormtroopers conquer Lucerne

Invasion in Lucerne: The Chapel Bridge has been guarded since last Wednesday, 9 November 2016, by 108 Stormtroopers. The famous figures from the STAR WARS films will be on display in front of the Lucerne landmark until Friday 11 November 2016.

Tourists and locals alike were quite surprised when they passed the Chapel Bridge on Wednesday: An army of 108 Stormtroopers, which have been made famous by the STAR WARS films, were guarding the Lucerne landmark. The 1.20m toy figures are an impressive sight and they have piqued the interest of numerous visitors.

Swiss toy importer, NIMEX AG, is behind the promotion. "Last year, the Stormtroopers stood on the Great Wall of China. They were put there by toy manufacturer JAKKS PACIFIC. We simply had to implement this idea for Switzerland", explained Hans Christian von der Crone, owner of NIMEX AG. It's well known that the images of the Stormtroopers on the Great Wall went around the world. And now the next galactic invasion is in Lucerne. The figures, which have been creatively arranged in front of the bridge, have aroused the interest of numerous passers-by and it creates the perfect scene for a photograph. This innovative idea has seen the landmark being beamed around the world and it conjures up a special image of Lucerne.

The famous Chapel Bridge is part of any visit to Switzerland and is a frequently photographed landmark in the country. A 'making-of' video shows the 108 Stormtroopers being set up last Wednesday. The figures were carefully positioned on a raised platform. Click here to view the video

"10 Stormtroopers will be raffled off and the rest will be exhibited at Manor Zurich Letzipark, Lucerne, Emmen Center and Geneva from Monday 14 November 2016", states Hans Christian von der Crone, CEO of Nimex.
