What is SARLACC?

Created in 1994, SARLACC (Seattle ARea Lucasfilm Artifact Collectors Club)
was the first local Star Wars collecting club in the United States.

SARLACC is one of the most diverse collecting groups anywhere,
with a wide range of interests and experience, including Star Wars custom toys,
statues, dioramas, masks/costumes, action figures and original movie props.

With at least one or more events each month, most members take turns
hosting potlucks and giving others a chance to see their unique
perspective on Star Wars collecting.

SARLACC welcomes new members regularly who share the passion for collecting Star Wars memorabilia.

Who We Are

At its heart, SARLACC is a monthly gathering where Star Wars collectors meet at different homes to view collections, share food and conversation. There are no dues and no elected officials. SARLACCians are made up of Star Wars collectors from the greater western Washington area. Meeting attendance can vary from as many as 50 to as few as 10 guests.

Our monthly meetings are a great opportunity to socialize and check out other members’ collections.

Every collection is different and they are not always ALL Star Wars…

Meetings are potluck, so there is always great food to socialize over. Sometimes we get a little inventive with the food selections…

We have a few events annually that can be loosely called ‘organized’ by SARLACC standards. One is the annual Halloween Party (aka SARLACCo’ween) where members are encouraged to come in costume.

Halloween is the ONLY time when you get a pass for wearing Star Trek costumes! (scary!!!)

One of the most anticipated meetings of the year is the Annual Holiday Party.

The highlight of the Holiday Party is the SARLACC White Bantha Gift Exchange.

In recent years, members have outdone themselves with amazing homemade gifts.

In addition to meetings, sometimes we attend and participate in conventions together like Emerald City Comicon, San Diego Comic Con and Star Wars Celebration.

Mike B, Kelly and Rod debate Aquaman’s legitimacy as a “super” hero at Emerald City Comicon.

We have the occasional crafting party…

In short, SARLACC is about people who are passionate about Star Wars and share a common interest in collecting and displaying Star Wars memorabilia and in doing so, we have some pretty amazing adventures.
