    Hi guys,
    I'm new to this board!
    I'm coming from Sweden to the DC area and I'm looking for some places to get cool Star Wars stuff - collectibles, cool t-shirts and stuff like that.

    Thanks!

    Hello, I guess I'm the first to welcome you to the GS! :)

    How long are you staying in the DC area? There are a few places to find SW collectibles but most places near me have closed. :( There are collectible shows here every few months though and there is always ebay! As for cool SW shirts, Hot Topic has a few shirts right now. And of course toy store like KB Toys and Toys R Us have several toys. I hope that helps and enjoy your stay here. :)

    Thanks for the welcome!

    I'm coming to visit my girlfriend, and will stay about 2 weeks. But we're going to try to visit other parts of the US too -- I really want to go to NYC and Miami! The weather can be really unpredictible in Sweden, and I would love to spend the week on the beach with sunny weather and warm water!

    I want to pick up some cool replicas and busts, figurines, that kind of stuff. Not really into the toys too much [except Unleashed]. Ebay would be great, but international shipping is $30 or something! :(

    I will check out Hot Topic for shirts. Any other suggestions? My gf said the same about the stores for that kind of stuff closing too. Its sad...

    Thanks,
    -Henrik

    There's also a DC Collector's Club, but if you're not long in the area, I'm not sure how much good that will do you. And I'm not a member, so I can't even really help you out there :p

    Do enjoy your stay in the US. And let us know what you think ;)

    Do you have more info about the collector's club? My GF is in the area, and maybe she can join or ask them for some ideas...it seems all the good stores have closed.

    Thanks for the help,
