  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,908
    My first one too! Can't wait! :D
  • andyscouseandyscouse Western MAMember Posts: 365
    This is my first one as well, if one ignores the other two I was involved in ... :)
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    LOL @andyscouse! Great job @jadedanc can't wait to see what becomes of this. I just sorted like 11 grab bags the last 2 days, lots of great parts to put in here... Send dark blue :-)

    I'm game for round three. How can I not be after how awesome I was treated the first round? My space truck is now complete minus custom stickers...pics to be added to my Flickr shortly.

    @murphquake and @gir3691 and I are all friends so if we go at the same time we can just hand the box off to each other.
  • andyscouseandyscouse Western MAMember Posts: 365
    @bmwlego Indeed, how could you not be?

    Same for @BrickRiver and me - we're both in NELUG and so could hand offf between us for our leg of the journey.

    Hoping I can schedule some time to visit the now quasi-infamous Queens Lego store and meet up with some of the NYers there ...
  • bmwlegobmwlego Long Island, New YorkMember Posts: 762
    When headed there let us know! We'll do a meal and a Pick a Brick!
  • USMCYodzUSMCYodz Member Posts: 93
    IF the NY guys and gals want to add some Taxis or Statue of Libs I never got them when I lived up there and now regret it!!!
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    @USMCYodz I got you. Remind me when it gets this far.
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    @GIR3691 didn't even know this was you, whatsup homeboy!
  • GIR3691GIR3691 Member Posts: 654
    I can also put in a couple of NYC Taxis. I think I have a couple spares left.

    @murphquake- Not much, man. :D
  • USMCYodzUSMCYodz Member Posts: 93
    @murphquake @gir3691 - You both rock

    Yeah I never got any taxis either... I "think" @murphquake still has them?? If so, send me a paypal request :)
  • jadeirenejadeirene US, CaliforniaMember Posts: 475
    Aww, a NY taxi would have been great to find in the box, but I think I'm pretty high up on the list. I'm still excited, though. Can't wait!
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    Sorry to hijack this but I'm trying to make sure I understand this thread. Is this a box of LEGO that is passed around the USA, which you pull some pieces and replace with pieces and then ship to the next person on the list? I was trying to find another thread with this info but not seeing it.

    If I'm correct, who is coordinating the list? I'd like to get in on the next phase (assuming there will be one after # 3).
    Thanx in advance....
  • andyscouseandyscouse Western MAMember Posts: 365
    @Chooch ... yes, that's correct, and if you're quick, that nice @jadedanc (#3 co-ordinator) will add you to the list. Just PM her ...
  • JosephJoseph Member Posts: 651
    ^^ andyscouse pretty much explained it but here's the other thread http://www.bricksetforum.com/discussion/4034/2012-jambalaya-exchange-us/
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    Thanx guys. I don't want to jump in and bump anyone. I can wait for the next one to start. Appreciate the info.
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    Hi @jadedanc , can you please add me to this Round #3 also?
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    Also on this box run, I wanted to throw a wrench in it :) Sooooo you don't necessarily need to mail to the closest/next person on list. Randomize it so that the same individuals don't receive the box in the same order as the last 1 or 2. All I ask is once you choose who you are mailing it to, PM me so I can mark them off my master list and we know how many people are still on box :)
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    Actually @jadeirene you may be high or low on list, the others will decide. I know some people were tired of being behind the same person/peoples so in this round I thought we could change it up a bit. Randomly pick someone off list, not necessarily the next one on list :) We shall see how this changes things :)
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    ^Good idea, makes it more mysterious and personal this way.
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,908
    I love the idea! So does this mean the box will not be coming to me first?
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    ^It's like 'Secret Santa', but not random.

    Dear 'Secret Sender' (whomever that shall be), I've been a good Bricksetter all year long, so may I make a request for lots of 1x1 plates in any and all solid colors? =)
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    No it will come to you first so that no one need to have to pay for the shipping, unless someone else would not mind shipping up north :)
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,908
    Gotcha!
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    So, my curiosity has gotten the better of me. Will there be a post on this topic when the box starts moving or will a new topic be started? I'm hoping some pictures will be posted as it moves along as I wait for it to hit my house :)
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,908
    The box has already been sent out to me! :) But @jadedanc are you going to start a new Flickr group for our pictures?
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    @LegobrandonCP great to hear it is heading your way - awesome - thanx for the update.
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    Sry guys/gals, RL interferred a bit the last few days. I didn't take pics of the box on purpose, so everyone would be surprised as it was mailed around. So if someone would like to post pics, here would be fine or we can do a new flickr group.

    I do ask everyone to either pm me or post on here when it is mailed to the next person, and I would appreciate a pm of who it was sent to so I can mark them off the master list I have.
  • JBricks27JBricks27 Member Posts: 672
    Is there a list of addresses in the box?
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    @jadedanc Thanx for the update. I thinking posting pics here works just fine. Can't wait to see the first receivers pictures :) It will be fun to see what people find cool to trade for.
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    @jvdrummer182 Yep there is a list in the box of everyone that wanted in on this box. And remember, you don't have to mail in order :)
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    @jadedanc Are we to cross ourselves off of the list once we receive the box?
  • USMCYodzUSMCYodz Member Posts: 93
    Chooch said:

    I think that's correct so we know who has had the box and who hasn't.
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303

    @Chooch Yep and send me a pm either when you receive box or name of whom you are mailing it to. :)
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    @jadedanc Will do. Thanx
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    @LegobrandonCP

    Any sighting yet of box? :)
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,908
    edited August 2012
    @jadedanc Nope, still waiting. :( I'm getting anxious!
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    Me too :)
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    ^^ Me third - I want to see pictures :)
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    @chooch Lol I took a few pics but forgot about it and wasn't getting all those bricks back out of their ziplocs just to take a pic. It has at least 40 snack-size ziploc bags in box plus the small set and polybags

    I'll make sure to get some pics once I receive the box. I really want to know what's inside.
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    Lol hopefully some stuff you can use!
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    @jadedanc Oh I wasn't worried about pics from you :) It will be fun to see what people receive each time and their comments. I don't want pictures of what people put in because that would spoil the surprise for the next receiver -
    I do want to say Thank You for starting this. I was happily surprised to be included long after you started the list for mailing.
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    @Chooch That was exactly what I was thinking with the pics. :) And you are totally welcome! Everyone needs to have fun with Legos. So many people forget about that side of it. Can't wait to see what ya'll turn my bricks into by the time I get the box back :)

    On a side note, please keep your thoughts and prayers with my daughters and my mom as Hurricane Isaac lands in south Louisiana. Wishing I was down there with them to hold and protect them, but I am still stationed in Tacoma WA area. So all I can do is worry like crazy...
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,908
    At last! The box has arrived! I will be drawing a name out of a hat to see who will get the box next. :)
  • ChoochChooch Member Posts: 148
    @LegobrandonCP SWEET! Post some pics - doesn't have to be all of the contents; just some random shots to drool over as I wait my turn :)
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,908
    Since I know not everyone might want to know what the contents of the box are, I'm going to try starting a Flickr Group. That way, no one has to ruin the surprise. :)
