 If you’re excited about all of the Star Wars news flying around on a near weekly schedule lately – the new movies, the Disney park, the comics from Marvel – you may want to dig all of your old action figures out from the back of the closet and visit this swap meet. The Star Wars Grand Florida Alliance is a hub for Star Wars collectors from across the state, and they’re bringing all their cool stuff to Gods & Monsters. From action figures to playsets, Legos to Funko, tons of toys and collectibles are on display. One of the most interesting parts is that nothing is for sale; it’s all trade-only. So if you want someone’s original mail-away Anakin Skywalker figure, you’re gonna have to pony up that vintage Empire Strikes Back lunchbox, you scruffy-looking nerfherder. 

6-10 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29 | Gods & Monsters, Artegon Marketplace, 5250 International Drive |
