Next year I'm requesting no chalmers. Twice in the trot is enough :lol:


He spelled Claus with two Cs, you weapon. It was obviously jamcc.

You're welcome, Rog. :-)

And holy crap thanks so much to my Santa (Chalky). :shock: He got me a ticket to the Classic Car Show at the Excel in February! I can't believe your generosity.

Seriously, thank you so much. I haven't been to a car show in years, so this is brilliant. And thank you for the lovely card too:

The packaging made me laugh. As you said, you tried, and the many layers of packaging only served to pique my interest. Here is just some of the packaging that the tickets came in:

Finally got time to do this, sorry for the delay!

My Secret Santa present arrived in a plain Amazon box so it took a bit of shaking to work out which ones I had bought for others and which was my SS. As it turned out I could have opened it anyway as there was an extra layer of packaging inside.

Inside was a rather lovely box

And inside the box were

Some awesome Zelda themed pendants. Now I'm not much of a necklace wearer Cora ;) but they'll make excellent key-rings. I'm going to need more keys!

Thanks Cora :wub: I've tried to get the spiritual stones to float above my hands but it's not working :(

:lol: I think the mug was better in theory than execution. I didn't have time to make a better design, so I could only plug your pearls of wisdom in to a word cloud generator and that was the best to come out of it. I don't know what the print quality is like. I gave them like a 60MP image and it was still telling me it wasn't high res enough. And it was supposed to cover more of the mug than a strip in the middle.

The quality is fine, perfectly legible. Only issue is that the last character on the furthest right words is clipped off because of the funkypigeon logo. Still, funny gooseberry fool though. Just confirms how incredibly legit my advice is.

Was the Emma pic a random selection?


Yeah, I have no idea what it even looks like stood up. Just took it out of the box and wrapped it

Pictures will have to follow tomorrow as I can't upload pictures on my phone, but Staydead got me Shovel Knight for 3DS and a small book on the history of Disney animation. Very pleased with both, thank you so much SD! :toot: :wub:

Did anyone's presents not arrive this year? Everyone looks to be a satisfied customer, Buff aside.

Thank you again for the wonderful gifts, Floex :wub: Look out for a new picture in the pick up thread with Link when I've cleared my desk and found a home for him :toot:
Jay Adama wrote:Huge thanks to SD64 for hooking me up with some sweet amiibo action but also for making things feel more Christmassy in this godforsaken land :toot: :toot:

I'm glad that you enjoyed your presents, Jay. I definitely wanted to get you something to unwrap but I wasn't sure which amiibo that you had so I went for the newer ones because I felt that there was more of a chance that you wouldn't have them. I did find your Twitter so I knew not to get ROB and there was an old post about how the normal woolly Yoshi is hard to find so I went for the big one so it wouldn't be too much of a duplicate if you did track down a normal sized one.

Merry Christmas Boxing Day, everyone! :toot: Thank you, Buffalo, for organising everything.

I wouldn't worry about it Albear, there's very little chance they'll even have the NTSC version in stock, let alone allow you to just switch it over as they inflate for import costs. There's a Wii U I can play it on in the house so it's all good. :wub:

Really love the book. The game was played with fams this evening and went down a storm.


Big thanks again for my present haul sir :mrgreen: The investment and thought are very much appreciated. Already brainstorming on what to spend the eshop credit on! Dry Bones already has a place among the Nintendo merch in the room :wub:

You're very welcome sir :mrgreen: I have to admit I struggled for a while for ideas...but then I found some posts about how you liked lego and building toys: bingo!

Made me want to get back into the hobby myself!

Glad they came out OK. I also got a set for my brother for Christmas - he doesn't wear necklaces either but I think they work pretty well as little decorations for desks, note boards etc.
