    After early trip to the sorting office this morning we have our first present under the tree courtesy of my SS.



    I really hope there are no Rebel incursions between now and Christmas Day :o)

    In other SS related news I managed to finally post my SS gift today after much tweaking.

    I have a 'thing' to collect from the sorting office tomorrow.  Not expecting anything else, so hoping it's Secret Santa!

    In case the contents were unwrapped, I got my wife to open the box. Just as well - my secret santa has left their ID in case I wanted to know. I've asked my wife to hide it until after Christmas.

    Looks like I've been a good boy this year - Santa appears to have been most generous. Definitely 1 poly - maybe 2, or a Mixel.

    The box feels like a [email protected] shipping box, and the contents move around a lot. Nice to be kept guessing.

    Thanks SS :-)

    Evidently a gamer, but not enough of a gamer to get the Boo the Hamster reference? Or maybe it wasn't as easy/funny to draw?

    Never even thought about a gaming reference for that before... are we talking Minsk, here?  BTW I'm *not* his SS.

    Boo is a Nintendo character (a ghost) which appears on the left of the picture above, but my username is taken from the character Boo (no kidding) from the webcomic Megatokyo, who was a hamster that worked for the Conscience Enforcement Authority.  He in turn, said artist & writer Fred Gallagher, was indeed an homage to the character 'Boo' from the game 'Baldur's Gate II'.

    Irrespective of what inspired the artwork, I love it!!

    ^ Larger hamster next time?  Or holding Mjolnir?

    That would be a Mighty Hamster.  It would be worthy.

    The hamster on the box does not look worthy, he looks guilty for pooping out those bricks he left behind.  :)

    Interesting - I've assumed all these years that it was a straight Baldur's Gate reference! Anyway, I meant no disrespect to the artwork! It's brilliant! :-)

    I received two parcels from my Secret Santa (thank you!!), and it's so hard to wait to open them! I'm traveling for the holidays until the 27th, so I won't get to open them until I return, but I figure it will be a nice surprise after dealing with the craziness of family for five days straight! :-)

    Got mine today. I'm away for a few days so decided to open it. It was a very well presented Xmas MOC that will take pride of place on the fireplace. Extremely happy with it all.

    My parcel arrived a couple of days ago. Sufficed to say I am excited to crack them open on Christmas day!

    Please let me know if you have not yet received your parcel unless you have already been notified that your gift may not arrive until after Christmas. Fingers crossed for another year with a 100% success rate :)

    I'm now building my SW Rebels battle pack which is part one of my SS gift and part two is coming from Firestar toys. 
    So a double whammy for me this Christmas :o)

    Many thanks to my secret Santa and merry Christmas.

    Nick.

    @BooTheMightyHamster - if you search hamster on the brickset parts list it comes up, looks like it was from a set rather than an event one.
