Hey guys,
Could anyone help me find a VC Starkiller? I've been ill for the past few months so I dont even know if they came to our area yet as I dont really get to get out much.
I can pay cost plus shipping plus a little for your time if need be.
Thanks

PS. I am also looking for a TRU Masterpiece Optimus Prime...

I can point you in the direction of Amazon. You will pay a bit more than retail but make sure you order another figure to go with it. Single cards don't fare well with amazon. They tend to mail it in a bubble mailer. 2 figs or more go in a box. I haven't even VC Starkiller on the pegs anywhere.

Today marks the 5th Anniversary of the Star Wars Grand Florida Alliance. It was January 24th, 2009 that the Tampa Star Wars Club and the Orlando System joined forces to start the SWGFA. Thanks to everyone who has been a part of our group over the last half-decade!

Our next event is coming together quite nicely and will take place in one month. The 2014 Star Wars Grand Florida Alliance Collector Showcase will feature pieces from YOUR collection that you choose to bring and display for other collectors to see! Make plans to attend this exciting event on Saturday, October 4th at the South Peninsula Community Church in Daytona Beach! We are also very excited to be accepting donations for a Christmas Toy Drive benefiting the Longstreet Elementary School. If you've got toys sitting in the closet that you no longer want, consider making them a donation for this good cause. This event will be FREE and fans of all ages are welcome. More details coming soon!

Greetings, I'm relocating from southern Ky to the Orlando area just before the thanksgiving holiday. The 2nd time we're had to move my huge collection, which is stressful!

I wanted to to jump on RS and start networking with other collectors. I have a few folks here and in the Nashville area that like me, are just looking to collect (not to make a buck)... Not to make a buck on scalping stuff. If we find anything scarce, we have built a network to where we can help out one another. My hope is that something similar exists in Orlando that I can earn enough trust to be mingled into.

We have a lot of members and collectors in the Orlando area, so you should have no trouble finding others with the same mind set. Like the official Star Wars Grand Florida Alliance Facebook page and join the fan page to get plugged in.
