SINGAPORE - The iconic AT-ACT walker is no longer just a figure of the imagination for fans here.

The towering 8.1m-tall structure is the star attraction of the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story at VivoCity.

A virtual reality experience plunges fans into the cockpit of an X-Wing Fighter or train characters from the Star Wars universe at the game stations.

Star Wars merchandise is also available for purchase at the atrium.

Directed by Gareth Edwards, the latest movie in the science fiction franchise takes place shortly after Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, and revolves around an unlikely group who bands together to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story shows in cinemas Dec 15.
