Kept meaning to shoot pics and never did :( 

 

Caffeine Santa visited my house and I got 3 bags of amazing coffee (seriously amazing) and my whole family tried and liked it on Christmas. This was my 3 younger kids introduction to coffee, and they all liked it.

 

Also got a bunch of great Cafe Pacori merchandise, I mean buttons, a tee shirt (that I wore to dinner before even washing) and an awesome mug and wood burnt ornament or something. I'm milking the coffee, it's my weekend, enjoy a great cup coffee. I use my usual for half awake weekdays.

Glad you like! I tired to include enough buttons and stickers for each of your kids to have :)

 

Let me know when you're out and I'll ship you a complimentary lb of whichever was your favorite!

Like coffee? I roast for a living! Check it out at caffepacori.com
Ask me about trading coffee for your spare M.U.S.C.L.E.S.! I'll take most, regardless of condition :D

Sadly, my giftee is still waiting. :(

They received part 1 of 2. So something is just slow, for whatever reason.

Looks like there were a few delays this time around but the most important thing is that in the end everyone gets his or her Gift and so far it looks like in most cases it was well worth the wait!

 

I haven´t been posting my Gift here yet since, like some of the others out here, my Secret Santa event went a little different because it looks like I got the inverted version LOL Meaning my Secret Santa blew his cover by reaching out to me in order to explain the Gift was a bit delayed so while most of you did receive their Gift and had to figure out who their Santa was afterwards that´s what I started with. I have to say that this was an interesting experience as well although with knowing your Santa you might become even more curious and that was definitely the case for me. A week or so ago I was contacted by Redjarojam that my Gift was delayed since he needed a bit more time working on it and that it would soon be on its way. For me this made it even harder because now I knew my Gift came from a talented and artistic guy so what was he about to send me!?

 

Well finally the wait is over and even though I had my Secret Santa gift send to my US ¨safe house¨ meaning I don´t have it in hand just yet I did get to see what my Xmas gift for 2016, eh 2017 whatever ;), was. After knowing my Santa I had my fingers crossed hoping for an artistic piece made by him because Gifts like that are just the best imho. And man did I get surprised and spoiled, look at this;

(Sorry for the images being rotated but they kept being flipped..... arrrghh)

 

What a great Gift my Secret Santa composed, eh created, for me, Thanks a lot!

 

He was more than right with the personal note about being set on Battle Beasts because that´s pretty obvious and picking out the Rabbit as one of my favorites shouldn´t have been very hard either but he did it all right and he even made an awesome diptych piece out of it in his own more than recognizable style (think I´d have figured out who he was without him blowing his cover without a problem based on his art style). Imagine those two pieces framed on the wall hanging beside each other..... They Battle for Fun, right! I can talk a whole lot more about it but I think its clear he nailed it! 

 

Also included where two Puke Knight figures because he felt like he needed to throw in at least some minifig but honestly that wasn´t needed at all because the art was more than sufficient for me. They´re cool though although I´m pretty much a noob when it comes to all other lines discussed out on LRG since I simply can´t afford to get hooked by any other lines besides my beloved Beasts lol

 

___________________________

 

To my Secret Santa:

 

Jared (Redjarojam) thanks a lot for the effort you´ve put into it to make this such a personal gift and no worries about the delay because if I knew this was coming I´d not have mind waiting a year, they´re so worth it!

 

___________________________

 

To my Giftee:

 

Time to blow my cover as Secret Santa as well even though I think for some of you it was already clear noticing some of the replies ;) I actually did include quite a couple of obvious and less obvious hints inside my package so if you wanted you´d probably have found out in no time, and I think you already did but if not here we go; 

 

Attached File  DSC_0334~2.JPG   74.83K   8 downloads

 

1. The Stroopwafels probably were the most obvious hint I could include because they´ve slowly become famous around here amongst some of the people who´ve ever received a package from me, hope you liked them?

 

2. Within the personal note/letter I included I included a hidden message. If you use all the capitals of the first and 2nd paragraphs you´d have found: WHITE RABBIT

 

3. And last but not least the little Christmas Card I included, it was in Dutch which is why I added the translation to it but I can imagine figuring out it was Dutch might´ve been a bit to hard so that wasn´t really the hint. The hint here was the little Penguin referring to my Penguin Army.

 

 

When it comes to the Gifts there´s a few things to add because I noticed in your post you weren´t 100% sure about the art piece being authentic of photoshop. My artist was very pleased to hear that because that means he did a great job recreating your famous Sea Panic shot as a unique little piece of art. The artist who made this was Justin Hernandez (@rottingghost on Instagram).

 

I included some of the foreign Beasts because I thought you´d like to have them and since I was unsure whether you´d all of the Spanish Bootlegs (did you have both Monkey colors?) I decided to play it safe and include a red one with both correct arms knowing you received yours with only the left or right ones.

 

Hope you enjoyed it!

 

Your Secret Santa; The White Rabbit ;)

Here's mine, all very much appreciated! I really needed a tiered shelf like that, and it will really come in handy for taking photos!

I couldn't have been happier to have my Secret Santa end up being one of my closest buds on LRG!

Sixthwiz was MORE than generous with his giving this year aaaaannnnddd supposedly there is a second box on the way too!!

I got a couple of of colored claws, some early Meadow Knight Creations figures (in rubber), a custom POWER CLAW... AND a very cool WON Samus figure.

Thanks for the kick ass toys Sixth, and helping make LRG the place on the interwebs!!

I had to bump this older thread because what I have received just needs to be seen! Rothsause and I have been talking for some time as she made me my gift. I told her to take her time if she wanted as she expressed the desire to "get it just right" for me, and wow... I am at a complete loss for words. This is a pressed metal, yes metal, hand painted piece that will now be the centerpiece to my entire FoA collection. From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!!!
