It would be for the second time in six months, the Grand Florida Alliance returned to ACME Superstore in Longwood Florida. It was way back in November 2011 when we reported on the first event and it went so well that they came back for round two bringing more fans together dressed up in cosplay and giving out goodies in raffles for all of us who love the Star Wars saga. There was a sale of 25% off all Star Wars items. This was a deal that I just couldn't pass up. I watched many other collectors who bought action figures, lightsabers, statues, t-shirts, pins anything you can think of. I bought a Star Wars weekends exclusive Darth Vader pin as well as a Celebration V exclusive pin, as several other older figures.

There were a couple of artist painting faces for children of anything they wanted to be Star Wars and many other sci-fi characters. There were also a few comic book artists signing and I had lots of fun chatting with them. If any of you Troops are in the area, you should consider attending the next in store event if for no other reason than to have a few laughs and fun with fellow collectors from all over the state of Florida. It's a great experience to interact with other collectors and fill holes in your collection at the same time! United We Find.
