IT was Star Wars galore for fans at Gloria Jeans Coffee (GJC) in Citis Square, Jln Berakas yesterday.
Fans of the film series were given special discounts during the specialty coffee company's promotion in conjunction with International Star Wars Day.
Dubbed "May the Froth" a play on the famed movie quote "May the Force be with you", the promotion gave customers swinging by for a cuppa 15 per cent off their bill provided they brought any Star Wars merchandise such as t-shirts, keychains and even DVDs.
The event even had children bringing along their Star Wars figures and proudly displaying them.
GJC also gave away minifig (mini figurines) fridge magnets of characters from the film series for every $25 spent during the special occassion.
The homage to the film didn't stop there. True to its theme, the coffee franchise was decked out with Star Wars figures and dioramas.
Customers walking into GJC were able to see the All Terrain Armored Transport (AT-AT), Death Star playset as well as scenes from the film series.
The dioramas were judged by the Brunei Usergroup Lego and Technics (BULAT) group and the best was awarded with a prize.
The group was also the provider of the Lego sets used during a speed building session at the coffee franchise on the same day.
During the session, Lego fans witnessed the building of R2D2s (a Star Wars character) and B-Wings (a type of spacecraft found in the film series) by two teams of lego builders.
In addition, customers who walked in between 3pm to 4pm, and 6pm to 7pm were treated to appearances of individuals clad in Star Wars characters.
According to GJC Branch Manager, Firdaus Omar, the coffee franchise is trying to hold events such as "May the Froth" more.
