    I have an idea(actually my Uncle Pat suggested it). I think we should take like a Vader action figure and send it around the world to all the diff. Fanforces.
    It would of course start out here and we would take a picture with it, or take a picture with it near something that people think of when they think of Boston- like the USS Constitution, the new Big Dig bridge, etc. Then we send it off to the next FF, most likely NYC(Probably take theirs near the Statue of Liberty), and then they send it on, etc. till it gets through all offical FF.
    Maybe even something larger than an action figure, maybe one of those 1 foot tall thingys.
    I think this has the potential for being alotta fun, and it would let us get to know the other Fanforces. Maybe even pave the way for a road trip in the very distant future.

    What do you guys think?

    Dave,this is a great idea!!

    I think the 12" figure would be better,probably see it better in a photo.

    I say we go for it!!

    I love this Idea so much that I will volunteer my 12" Darth Vader!!

    It actually a vintage 12" figure,which,IMHO,makes it a better choice to send!

    ok, before we start anything on this,I think some details should be discussed.

    Should we ..

    A) send it to a chapter,then have them send it back to us.And then we send it on down the line.
    B) have the chapter we send it to just send it on to the next chapter on the list

    As for the picture of it..

    Should it just be..

    A)Just a pic of Vader with a landmark.

    B) A pic of the FF members holding Vader by the landmark.

    C)if in the case that the Vader gets sent from Chap to Chap,should the pic be sent to us or travel along with the Vader.

    Just a few of things that need to be talked over.I really like this idea and hope we do it.

    That's really cool. But I would have chosen a more obscure character.

    Wouldn't it be better if we had a 6 foot cardboard cutout? :) Of course, that's harder to ship, but it would match up to the people in the picture.

    Maybe Lucas can fund the $$$ to ship it around! :D

    Thanks, guys. I've been thinking about this for quite a while. The thing is, to handle shipping, we are gonna have to collect dues. And just a reminder- we need dues for the website too.

    Here it goes- first we send the Vader to NYC with a disposable camera(or two) with it. They take a picture with Vader and also take a pic of Vader near a landmark(two pics). Then, they look at the list we are gonna send with Vader of all the shipping addresses of the head dudes at diff. Fanforces. They send Vader to the closest FF to them. The next FF does the same thing as NYC and so on...
    This should take at least a year as this Vader is going all the way around the world.

    We need to contact ALL of the Fanforces and tell them about this idea. Hopefully everyone will be interested and we can get info from them, like what their shipping address is. I don't know how much shipping will be but hopefully the other Fanforces won't mind spending a couple bucks.

    A more obscure character, Bib? Like Traveling Porkins :p

    How do we go about telling everyone about this? Someone come up with an idea. Rox already knows, I think the next step is to tell Mysty and LadySith over at NYC.
    Actually, can we get this idea posted on the TFN/FF main page(s)? That way more people will see it and maybe will even contact us.

    Roy- wanna help telling everyone? You like talking to people.

    How do we go about telling everyone about this?

    What I can probably do is start a thread in the CR forum to let all the CR's know what we are planning.Have them PM me mailing addresses, and then we can put a mailing list together to put in the box with Vader and the cameras.

    We are def. not going with 6 feet. We are using Roy's Vader.

    Good idea Roy. Thanks.

    I'll start the thread and let them all know.

    Just so I know what to tell em',when do you wanna start this thing?Any specifications that we might want to add?Maybe have each chapter put a little note or something,greetings of some sort??

    Yes, It would be nice for each group to leave a note.
    I'd like to start this after the next meet- after we get pics with Vader.
    I might be missing something but I must admit I accidently took my pain meds twice and I'm really dizy. It's hard to concintrate.

    Thats a good question.Our next meet isnt really at a spot that makes ya think of Boston.

    Although,it is right on the Charles,and the Fleet center is like 2 minutes away also.

    Where do we want the pic taken?

    And if we dont do the pic at the next meet,I strongly suggest that everyone make it to whenever we decide to take the pic if you wanna be in it!!

    I'd like to take the pic as soon as possible. We could go somewhere in Boston after the meet and take a pic. It's not that big of a deal.
