Stormtroopers surprised shoppers when they indulged in a bit of retail therapy at the Centrale shopping centre.
The soldiers from the Galactic Empire took in shops including House of Fraser and Sports Direct in Croydon in celebration of Star Wars Day.
It is held every year on May 4, after the expression from the Star Wars film series May the force be with you.
One onlooker said: "I come to Centrale all the time, but this is the first time I've been greeted by Stormtroopers.
“They were just going about their business, doing some shopping and I even spotted them enjoying a coffee at one point too.
“I'm a huge Star Wars fan, so it was great to see them in the flesh."
