    Ok quick look in the lego loft and i would like to add a sealed martian manhunter poly 5002126. Just as an aside i won't be able to ship prizes straight after the raffle as i will be on holiday but will do so as soon as i return to blighty.

    ^ Double dipping? My octo-dipping reputation from another raffle is safe then? ;o) They weren't all for me though. I was inspired to buy tickets for others.

    Nice one @brickedin perhaps I might have a challenger? ;o) Technically I think @bendybadger has already surpassed octo-dipping though with his awesome LEGO games marketplace thread, and his prizes of ten raffle tickets in this and last week's bendybadger bonus ball draws. :o)

    ^ Fortunately I'm only handling a couple of prizes, but yes, I do have a collection of white gloves for when handling and reading my books.  [cough]

    With any luck most will now have received your ticket numbers.  A few pledges received didn't have a Brickset FORUM ID in the comments box however so I have emailed each of you seperately requesting it.

    Please can you get back to me ASAP?

    I am adding 2 mystery prizes to the draw too.  We all love a bit of suspense and I still have no idea what the prizes might even be? Might be Lepin, Lego or maybe a Mars bar.  I have no idea yet but will aim to do a bit of shopping in Paris before I head back home tomorrow. 


    I think Double Deckers are traditional in these parts.   :)

    Not much you can do about the injuries you sustained already. But you can look after yourself as well as possible now to avoid any other unnecessary issues. As a former soldier who marched long distances with heavy loads, I can say with some authority that the trick is to have comfortable, worn-in boots, dry socks, foot powder to keep them dry and tape for the bits that you know always rub and give you issues. Some blokes swore by two pairs of socks, but I never did that. Look after your feet and they will look after you!
    Now that I'm wearing a 'fingered' liner under my thick wooly socks, there is not so much as a red mark on my feet or between my toes.  They don't even get damp.  They could walk 1000 miles and get blistered.

    My latest complaints are Plantar fasciitis and Runner's Knee.  I'm doing a ton of exercises to strengthen, stretch and support the troubled areas but hoping the doctor can wave a magic wand on Tuesday or sell me a ridiculously expensive splint or exercise ball or something in lieu of muscle.

    @Legoboy - Make sure you have the squishy inserts in your walking shoes.  I managed to inflict myself with plantar faciitis last summer after walking 13 miles in one afternoon.  

    The shoe inserts got rid of the problem only a few days later.  (And lots of ice and ibuprofen .)  But the inserts made all of the difference in the world.  (I still wear them.)

    And I got my raffle numbers.  I am very much looking forward to see who wins what!

    I actually had a pair of inserts custom made a few years back for when I was having trouble preparing for the London Marathon with 8 weeks training.  It was because I was suffering I bought a pair of Superfeet on Friday, just hoping they would help.  I'm sure they might well have done with a healthy foot but Christ does it hurt right now.

    ^ Burnzie - because the colouring really pops or a commission of something Nexo Knights related would be my pick I think @TheOneVeyronian but I have more than one favourite character, mmmm decisions decisions! :o)

    Isn't there a receiving limit on PayPal? Maybe the account has surpassed that

    Hi everybody.

    Paypal have noticed some unusal activity on my account and as a result they have temporarily limited my account.  The level of information they require to lift the restriction is relatively simple but it is questionable if my account will be reinstated this upcoming week.

    Please continue to make your donations using https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/James-Camplin send me a pm to notify me of your pledge and I will continue to issue you the tickets in the same way.

    Thanks for your cooperation.  Business as usual.  :)

    Yeah they've probably limited it due to the suspicious amount of small transactions. Or that the limit has been reached

    The limit was reached, restricted and lifted last week.  This is due to unusal activity.

    Earlier we were just sending money via Paypal. But now that his account is suspended you can do it via the link provided in the previous comment.

    @jern92, the last line sounded like it is only eligible to UK citizens.  Sorry, I guess I misunderstood that part of his message.  Thanks for your help.

    Exactly right @snowhitie, thanks.  :)  I have edited my comment above in hope it's a little clearer.

    Thanks @sirrich69 for your donation received at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/James-Camplin

    Just out of curiosity, what do those in the UK have to pay to ship to the USA? I get the feeling that USPS is ripping us off...

    My Paypal account has been restored but they did warn it may 'trip' again if it receives a ton more transactions at the rate it was previously.

    They instead urged me to not tempt fate and stick with using the JustGiving site whereby Paypal funds can continue to be used as well as credit/debit cards.

    Just don't forget to PM me afterwards with details and try to avoid using the 'r' word.  :)

    But some of the countries in Europe charge VAT and other taxes on packages sent from other countries.

    USPS has pretty much made it pointless buying anything from America. It would need to be a massive bargain to be worth the postage

    WOW! out to everybody that has donated prizes. Look at it! You folks did that! :o) And people are still adding to the prize list.

    Can we get this fantastic prize pic of community generosity and awesome prize goodness onto the front page, please @Huw? Nobody is going to want to miss getting their raffle tickets by August 4th.

    That's a really good montage of the prizes - I have to take my hat off to you for the picture for the 100 likes from @SprinkleOtter  though, that was brilliant and genuinely made me laugh loud.

    Alternately, if you know anyone in the USA that is already going to be shipping you something, or travels between the US and Europe, I could ship it to them for between $3-$5 (though usually more like $3)
