Five Clubs, Five Patches for C5

Five of the largest Star Wars collecting clubs in the US are pleased to announce a set of five themed patches for Star Wars Celebration 5. The participating clubs are The Washington DC Area Star Wars Collecting Club (DCSWCC), The Kentucky Star Wars Collectors Club (KSWCC), The Ohio Star Wars Collectors Club (OSWCC), The Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society (PSWCS), and the Star Wars Grand Florida Alliance (SWGFA). The five triangular embroidered patches, each sponsored by one of the clubs, fit together like a puzzle to form a larger image of Boba Fett, the show's de facto mascot. Design and artwork for the patches was provided by long-time web cartoonist Bill Cable.

All five patches will be available exclusively at Star Wars Celebration 5 and free to attendees, but quantities are extremely limited. Each club will be distributing their sponsored patch in a different way, which will be announced separately.

DCSWCC is one of the largest and most active collecting clubs in America, with over 60 members. The club meets monthly and holds special events throughout the year such as socials, picnics, and "Roadshow" appraisal events. For more information, visit the club website at http://www.dcswcc.org

KSWCC is a locally based club focused on helping members become better collectors, and helping each other in achieving their personal collecting goals. In addition to three regional monthly meetings where members keep fresh with what's new and in the stores, KSWCC holds larger annual gatherings which include the annual auction fund-raiser, Fall Social, and the Regional Holiday Gift Exchanges. For more information, visit the club website at http://www.kswcc.com

OSWCC is a great resource where collectors all over the Buckeye State can discuss collectibles, toys, and generally anything Star Wars. Their three regions host monthly meetings, and they have a strong online forum for their
275+ members. The club attends many local toy shows and has outings to big conventions like Celebrations 2, 3, and now 5! For more information on OSWCC, visit http://www.oswcc.com, where you will find up-to-the-minute information on how to obtain their piece of the patch.

PSWCS celebrates their 10th anniversary this year, and a highlight of the festivities is participating in their third Star Wars Celebration. Their
360+ members are dedicated to enhancing the collecting experience through networking, education, and social events. You can learn more about PSWCS at http://www.pswcs.com

The SWGFA consists of three clubs in the state of Florida: The Orlando System, The Tampa Star Wars Club, and The Treasure Coast Star Wars Club. We hold quarterly socials, local monthly meetings, and group outings. These clubs represent fans of the Saga, collectors, costumers, and above all, those who share a love for all things Star Wars.

Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
