    Some time ago...some people from the Boston FF group had an idea to do something worldwide with the FF groups. They decided to ship Darth Vader (doll) around to the different Fan Forces. You can go find the story here:
    http://www.bostonrebels.net/vader
    and see some of the places it has already been.


    It's been almost a year since the original idea came and went. In that time, we've had many new members and even had a new group spawned from Orlando. While I was CR in Orlando, I signed Orlando up for it. I'm not exactly sure who it is being sent to, but the doll is coming to Orlando! It should either wind up in my, JediDan's or Thumper's mailbox depending on who the people in Atlanta sent it to.

    It would be great if we can get as many FF members from Central Florida together (Melbourne, Gainsville, Daytona and Tampa weren't created when this started so neither is on the "official" listto take pictures with the Vader. It would also be great if we can get him into the Disney SWW!!!! What an awesome pic then!

    Anyhow, is anyone else interested? I'm out of town till who knows when but Thumper or JediDan should be able to arrange something!!

    Hey there! I'm from Boston Rebels. I'm hitting SW Weekends May 16-19 and would love to see ol Vader in attendance.
    Even if he doesn't make it, I'd like to gather as many FF as possible for a pic to possibly send to Insider.
    I've created some printable badges to help identify FanForce members. You can get it here. You can use a graphic program to put your name and/or where you're from on it. There's a sample one there to see.
    You may want to use the Distant Galaxy font. I'm willing to whip them up for people and send them via email.

    Last I heard, Vader's in Atlanta right now. I think his next stop is Orlando. Our website is down right now while we're remodeling, but it should be back up on Thursday, so you can check on good ole Darth's progress. Our CR asked me to write an article for Insider about the Vader Tour, so if you folks have anything you'd like to share from your time under the iron fist of the Dark Lord, feel free to share it. ;)

    YES YES!! SWWE would be awesome! Just think, Vader, the 501st and as many FF members as we can find!!
    That plus Sebulba's article would certainly catch the Insider's attention!

    Hey all! :)

    Just a little FYI: Vader was sent on his way to Orlando on Monday, so y'all should be seeing him soon. :D

    Don't forget about the Beachtroopers up here in Daytona! I will be attending the first weekend and the trooper weekend of SWW, and there should also be some friends of my CR from R2-Detroit down for the trooper weekend. What an awesome pic we could get!!!

    Hey guys, I know the Beachtroopers will want to get in on this and there will be some people visiting from R2-Detroit that will want to as well. Do we know when/where pics will be taken or anything?

    Hey all, I've heard that Vader is going to have to be mailed out before this weekend. Will he not be at the events Saturday?
