LewisD you absolute legend :mrgreen:

Image

I am a huge, huge, huge Phoenix Wright and Breaking Bad fan, so needless to say I absolutely adore the shirt! My brother is incredibly jealous as he's also big on Ace Attorney, ahah.

I also love both the Super Nintendo and import gaming, so to have a boxed copy of Kirby's Super Star, one of the system's best games, is an absolute delight! Also very eager to try the strategy game which I'm honestly not familiar with, I have a SNES capable of playing import games so I'll be able to play 'em :)

Thank you very, very much sir, you clearly did your research and went well above the call of duty! It is certainly very much appreciated :D

Also ecstatic to see that Joer is very happy with what I got him, god I love GRcade's Secret Santa :wub:

SO glad you like your gifts :)
As soon as I got you I knew I was getting that t-shirt :) I had a job finding your size though, that's why I had to ask buff.

The Famicom games were a gamble, Kirby because I didn't know if you already had it (search loads of post history!).
The strategy game, after a bit of research, seemed like a predecessor to Advance wars, so I thought you might find it interesting.

Let me know what it's like.

Thank you so, so much, SS. I definitely owe you a beer at some point!



Glad you enjoyed it mate! Merry Christmas and was good to deliver it in person and meet you too :)

So sorry I'm posting this so late! I had a 2+ hour car journey this afternoon and have been boozing since!

My Santa got me...

Image

A perfect cube! :shock: I opened it to find...

Image

A Pacman box, which contained...

Image

... A Pacman mug. It's one of those heat sensitive ones which reveals all the Pacman characters when it gets warm. The box also had a £10 Xbox Live voucher strapped to it.

Thanks very much to my Santa. :-) My parents insist on having weird ponsey mugs which are stupidly shaped and/or too small, so the mug is ideal. The voucher will come in handy very soon, no doubt.

PS A note to my Santa - I've let my parents know that the mug isn't dishwasher or microwave safe!

Pretty sure in the pm's we said we'd try and not ruin his Christmas.

Excellent show all round this year, and I don't think we have a single Vesp! Fantastic work by everyone involved, and naturally special thanks go to Buffalo for sorting it all out. :wub: :wub: :wub:

Glad you enjoyed. That card was written while being crushed in a post office so excuse the writing :slol:

I want to see a picture of that thing built and painted.

Skarjo - I'm glad you like it! I was worried that Flareon might not be there until after Christmas but I'm glad you managed to get both packages. For the record I don't mind you opening them early, was my fault really. I wish Amazon would put better info when I clearly marked "This is a gift" option :roll: But yeah, glad you like them!

Green Grecko I'm at my sister' home for Christmas, so I didn't get to grab the present with me but I will let you know when I manage to pick it up :) (Unless you saw my message and didn't mail it out till after xmas)

Glad DML likes his gift, looking forward to hearing PPM's reaction!

I still can't quite believe I have a Dreamcast again after years without! And I never had Shenmue first time around. So now it's time to start building a collection.

Chalmers, you are an absolute legend. And you've made me certain that North-East 'cade needs a meet-up. Let's make this happen.

My santee hasn't posted. I can only assume I ruined his Christmas.

I've been at the inlaws all day, but want to say thank you to boris for his awesome presents, which included:

Lego
Chatter teeth
A dragon with an axe and katana (because...you know...its a strawberry floating dragon with an axe and katana!)
Sweets
And a mug which cracked me and the gf up proper. Unfortunately I won't be able to take it to work incase a certain person sees it.

Stella gifts and really appreciated.

Photos to follow.

Really glad you like the present DML. I love what this place is capable of when we all come together.


You're very welcome :mrgreen:

I had to do a fair bit of Twitter trawling for inspiration but thankfully I seem to have got things right! I picked the film because you tweeted about the passing of James Gandolfini so I took it that you were a fan of his (and therefore a man of impeccable taste). He's really good in it :)

I don't know if the notebooks are entirely work suitable but hopefully you get some use out of them!

StayDead, thanks very much again, I really appreciated the thought with the annual (it's already had a good read today!) and it's good to finally get my own Funko figure after the kitchen has been taken over by my wife's collection! Most kind :D

Great that you liked your gifts, DML, big props go to Buff for organising everything again!

It's really lovely to see how much effort people have put into their gifts, I hope everyone enjoys them and has a cracking rest of Christmas :)

You have no strawberry floating idea. Genuinely speechless when I opened it up in front of my mum earlier, been quite gobsmacked since.

I'll get photos up tomorrow, strawberry float me you're a star. :wub:

Ad7, hopefully it'll arrive soon.
