    Too busy looking at my collection and being introspective with the release of the Taj...
    If you need to round out the Oz/NZ numbers @cmrt1014 count me in!

    @nexander you were in the list, so must have not pressed 'send' on the PM. Apologies, should be corrected now.

    Couple of more people messaged last night after I was asleep, but now everyone should have had a PM. I'll be doing the draw tomorrow because I'm travelling to the UK today.

    @FowlerBricks I was talking about the initial reply re UK people. We're all doing the draw in the coming days and @CapnRex101 will get to you.

    @iso3200 that is not included in the service I'm afraid.

    So what you saying is that I should have signed up yesterday to have my name in the box that @snowhitie is drawing names out of today?

    Damn I wish I'd done that. Shouldn't have spent all my spare time picking up that pallet full of £15 Falcons from that dodgy looking bloke outside a big warehouse somewhere in Denmark.

    Now I'll never get rid of them. ;D

    £15 UCS Millennium Falcons I think, I don't really know, maybe Secret Satan but I thought Halloween was over, it's all very confusing.

    Huge thanks to @snowhitie who had the foresight to account for idiots like me and planned the draw to allow for latecomers!

    @MaffyD yeah I am being optimistic. Though if I were getting a gift for me. I would put it in a lego box roughly the same size as the UCS Falcon and then in the box just put the mini Toys r' us falcon in it with a note saying "0.1% of the way there"

    I should be ready to ship out my gift by next week, provided I can source the rest of it...

    @snowhitie Was I one of those who had to buy for themselves? That would make things a lot easier for me... no worrying about whether or not the recipient would like the gift for one ;oP

    Hoping I get my assignment soon though - I'm eager to get started!

    @TheOneVeyronian nope :) I've send out some more this morning and will do more this afternoon, just over halfway.

    I'm sending them out in order of people inscribing so if memory serves me right you should be up soon.

    @CapnRex101 great idea, it will also ensure a nice 'rumble rumble' sound that Lego makes!

    I have now drawn and assigned Secret Santa's ho ho ho for everyone in mainland Europe and the Republic of Ireland.

    If you have not received a message from me/thought you signed up/have questions or generally just want to say hello please feel free to send me a PM.

    May the games begin!  Or uh preparations and buying/building.

    What happens if someone's wishlist only contains retired modulars and promotional sets that are unavailable for sale? Sorry, first time doing this so not entirely sure.

    That's when you have to start stalking then on the forum to see what their other interests are. Our maybe make some kind of MOC or something if  you're the creative type.

    I'm having some serious non-participatory regrets right about now. Missed the deadline and have no one to blame but myself. 

    I guess I'll have to live vicariously through those who were much smarter than I!

    I've at least decided what to give, but is it a MOC? Is it a set? Well... it's LEGO (in some form or other).
