Last night between 6 and 8pm, the Disney Store in London’s Oxford Street previewed the new D350 Marvel and Star Wars area, ahead of its opening to the public this morning.
We attended and were impressed with what we saw, a new Star Wars and Marvel destination for shopping in the heart of London’s West End. A plethora of products were available from licensees including Hasbro, LEGO, Funko, Loungefly, Disney Store, DK, Marvel (Comics), Gentle Giant, Royal Selangor and Hot Toys. A lot of Black Series figures were on shelves including the elusive Mandalorian, although not the complete range, alongside only two figures from The Vintage Collection.
On display are life-size models of Kylo Ren, Rey and BB-8 that you can pose for your photograph with. Also on display were a few props from Propshop, most notably a First Order Stormtrooper helmet and the burnt remains of Darth Vader’s helmet both from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. None of these items were available for purchase.
Others in attendance included members of UK Garrison (501st Legion), Rebel Legion, Mandalorian Mercs and Fantha Tracks.

If you are curious as to why the area is called D350, we asked and were told it was because the Disney Store’s address was 350 Oxford Street – so there you have it. You can read the press release appertaining to the opening of this new dedicated area here.
If you make the journey to London, you now have a new place to visit. Add D350 to your list of places to track down the latest Star Wars (and Marvel) merchandise, we will for sure!
