    Monster Fighter, Monster Fighter, Chicken.
    Two of these things belong together...

    ^ Clearly the Monster Fighters Werewolf and Chicken as they are both part animal, part man

    I'm glad my SS went with the "crushed box special" in order to cram in more sets for the value. Red Stormtrooper, standing by...



    My apologies, bro. Around here those battle packs and the micro sets always seem to be crushed on the shelves of Target and Walmart. I read your comments about the Clone Wars TV show so I figured a squadron of stormtroopers would be awesome and was going to send 3 First Order Battle sets but alas they had mostly sold out by the time we were able to get to Target. So that's why you got that lame red trooper. His name is Sir Firecrotch. His favorite Pokemon is Charizard and he enjoys banging the bongo drums on his days off.
    It's just a box, so no worries. :)
    I actually like the red Stormie and officer- it's impossible to get officers outside of Hoth.
    lol.

    I was re reading this thread the other day, and wondering if it was too early to start thinking about it! I even made some notes of things to include regardless of the recipients preferences.

    My initial instinct was to complain that this was wayyyy too early, but then again I'm halfway through decorating an advent calendar, have organised a date for my LUG Christmas party, received an invite to my work's Xmas do and have bought my first present. So it would be a bit hypocritical of me :-) 
    In conclusion, if mince pies are in the shops and Strictly has started, it's not too early. 

    I think I'd be up for doing this again.

    And me! I kept the (excellently) decorated box from this year, and I added the specially printed fig into one of the LegoLand keyring display cases too as my sigfig...

    I was newer to the forums last year and apprehensive to join. But I've been excited to join in the festivities this year if the US contingency will be participating!

    I'm up for doing the EU again this year.  Lots of fun, and maybe a larger group of EU-ers this year?

    I was definitely intending to get the Secret Santa going again this year and am amazed that we have reached this time of year again already! I am actually on holiday for another week so perhaps we could get started on the 1st of September if that suits everyone?

    @scoiltreasa - No drinking, just idiocy :)

    1st of October!

    I think it was started on the first last year. Sounds good 
  • nexandernexander Glasgow Member Posts: 897
    Look forward to this every year! Unfortunatly it also means I have the lug one to sort too. I suspect it will be a bit busier than last year.

    I think I'll give it a shot this year. I'm in the US.

    I've already sorted out incidentals! Now need a nominated person to get some creative juices flowing. Really enjoyed the giving (and receiving) last year and seeing everyone else's stuff. To my eternal horror I've realised that I haven't opened some of the Lego I got last year! In my defence, I've been very busy. Yeah, that's not much of a defence is it?

    Anyone else admitting to re-reading all the deliveries and openings from last year? Just me? Ok then :-)

    It's better than the Falcon thread in terms of pure excitement. And certainly better in terms of delivery! I've now concluded that although I still won't manage to get to the creative heights of other SS have last year, I'll try my best!

    And I might even open one of my sets from last year!

    3 days to go.

    I'm actually astounded that I 've never made the simple effort to partake yet.
    How ridiculous!
    Certainly will this time round!

    I may be in this year or maybe not and if I am, I may lie about it unless I don't of course. :)

    @bandit778 - are you a secret member of management at the company I work for, that sounds so familiar...

    I couldn't tell you if I was. ;p
