The October 2014 Fandom in a Bag swap is Star Wars

Step 1: Please list in the comments your favorite characters, movies/series,worlds, moments, or any other preference you may have.

Step 2: After partners are assigned, check to see what your partner likes. You can follow-up with a message if you need to know more. Then scrounge up, buy, and/or create items that fit in a bag. Your bag must contain at least 7 different items although more is certainly encouraged (PLEASE try to make it look full).

Some ideas of themed items: stickers, ATCs, postcards, toys/action figures, comics, note cards, pins/buttons, magnets, jewelry, trading cards, charms, ornaments, books, bookmarks, address labels, postcards, plushies/stuffies, promo stills/autograph cards, fainfic, zines, etc.

More specific ideas: Jedi Academy exam sheet, podracing betting card/trick dice, hat/scarf to keep your partner warm on Hoth, mini light saber, mini versions of the droids your partner might be looking for, Han in carbonite ice cube trays, postcards or travel posters from different plants/systems, language dictionaries/cheat sheet, etc.

Be sure to check your partner's profile so you don't send anything he or she might be allergic to.

Step 3: Put the items in a ziplock-type bag. Size: 1 gallon (measures AT LEAST 10 inches by 11 inches or 28cm by 26.5 cm). You can decorate the bag or incorporate the bag into something (mount it or sew something around it). If you want to make or buy a bag instead of using a ziplock plastic one, that's fine as well, but it should be at least a gallon in size. All items you gather or create should fit into the bag (if a couple are too big, that's fine).

Assemble your bags during the month of October and please send by the deadline (October 31).

Group rating rules apply. NO FLAKING ALLOWED! Flakers will be on the wrong side of a light saber.

I'm a fan of the original movies. I haven't seen the 3 prequels. I'm also a fan of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" (cartoon). Some of my favorite things are Chewbacca (I have a Chewie collection, so anything and everything Chewie is welcome); Storm Troopers; Boba Fett; Princess Leia; Jawas; Han Solo; C-3PO; R2D2; Yoda; Wampas; and Ewoks.

I would love to receive: t-shirts (Men size L); action figures; plushies; anything handmade; tote bags; ornaments; keychains (especially the LEGO ones); themed fabric; jewelry; polymer clay figures (handmade); Funko POP Vinyl figures. Those are just suggestions of things you could send.

I am one of those rare, crazy fans who likes the prequels more than the original. The original is fine, but I love me some Liam as Qui-Gon Jinn and Ewan as Obi-Wan. Anything with Ewan as Obi-Wan is <3

I love the Jedi Order in general (anything Jedi from logos to lightsabers are fantastic) and I love the Ewoks. Characters I especially love: Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, Yoda, Bant, Ahsoka ("Snips"), C-3PO, R2D2. And I definitely like the "good guys" over the "bad guys."

I would never say no to LEGO Star Wars anything, original or prequels.

I forgot to mention that I adore Ahsoka! I have a Ahsoka hooded tunic that looks like her costume. It's awesome!

@kiddo47 Awww! I am so envous of your hooded tunic. That sounds awesome! :-)

I am rolling at this line "mini versions of the droids your partner might be looking for". You're a hoot, KateKintail!

I love all of the movies and saw the original ones in the theatres when they first came out! Awesome stuff! I love Yoda, Luke Skywalker, and Han Solo the best, but I also adore the droids and the Ewoks, and Chewbacca. I collect Lego bricks, so the Star Wars Legos would be great. T-Shirts should be Large (men's or women's). I really think it would be hard to go wrong with this swap, so be creative. This sounds like fun!

@ksj1717 I try ;-) Glad I could entertain!
