I got mine! I will take pics this week.

 

It came in time too but I didn't have time to open it until now.

 

LOVE THE WOLFMAN ACTION FIGURE FROM TALES FROM THE CRYPT!

 

It will be one of the very few toys I kept packaged forever.

Just a quick note to my Secret Santa; You can rest assured because my package arrived earlier this week. 

Haven´t had the time to open it yet, I´ll do it during the weekend, and once I´ve celebrated this belated Christmas (which is extra fun) I´ll share a pic in the newly opened topic.

 

My Giftee should´ve received my Secret Santa package as well this week so I hope it´s to his liking, it wasn´t the easiest one for me that´s also the reason for the ¨slight¨ delay as I´d to call in some help from connections in other countries. Again apologies for the delay but hopefully it´s worth it.

 

Merry Belated Christmas for all of you who got their packages late as well ;)

I got mine weeks ago!  Opened the box in front of my wife & friend, imagine the SURPRISE when a life-size pink vinyl BABY popped out!  My wife, eyes wide:  "Uhhhhh, what sort of stuff are you into online, hon?  ....It's a...a...beet baby?!"    :lol:

Seriously, this thing is great.   B)

 

We shipped a few days before Christmas, so my guy should have his stuff by now.  (??)

Here are the pics from my Secret Santa gift. With the package coming from Korea there´s no a lot of doubt about who´s my Secret Santa so thanks to RetroWorldKorea for participating!

 

Since I got the package earlier this week but I wanted to take my time to open it the White Rabbit had to remain patient for a few days... So it´s been drooling in front of this secret package coming from Korea for a few days :bunny:

Attached File  IMG_20180105_190004_905.jpg   173.84K   7 downloads

 

But today it finally was allowed to open the package and this is what´s found inside;

Attached File  IMG_20180106_131223_005.jpg   248.4K   8 downloads

 

It´s always a surprise what you get and this year it was a box with the Beast Saga W figures and a, to me unknown, Korean Bootleg toy that´s some Beast influences in it. Pretty cool!

 

Also got a note with it coming from RetroWorldKorea in which was mentioned that he hoped that I didn´t have the Beast Saga W figures already. I´m sorry to say that I do have them, the full set actually, but I really appreciate the effort and thoughts behind it and it´s not easy to run through and fully scan your Giftee´s collection to the bone. The Korean Bootleg set is an interesting one and I´m happy to be able to have a look at that one from up close now so thanks a lot!

 

As always the Secret Santa event out here is great fun and it´s always a surprise what you get and and how your Giftee might react to it. On the other hand though, as I´ve experienced myself as well this year, it is really hard to find something that´s really unique or highly wanted by the Giftee, unless you´re an artist yourself or there´s an artist free to work on something on a relatively short notice. Let´s face it we´re all, or at least most of us, pretty much well informed (specialized) collectors within our own fields of interest for which we all have separate areas out here on the board so it´s almost impossible to satisfy everyone all the time. Especially when your Giftee is someone you don´t know and who´s collecting a completely different toy line. But to me it´s also the attempt and the gesture that counts during this unique event, once a year, when various collectors of lines merge to celebrate the Secret Santa event.

 

If I can I´ll definitely joining again next year!

Second that!

 

I understand people might refrain themselves from sharing their Gift once they know the package that they´d send out to their Giftee hasn´t arrived yet and they´d like to await that but that means others might´ve to wait because of that as well. Personally I know my Giftee received my package as I´d send it out with a delivery confirmation, that´s why I already shared my Gift earlier, but so far my Giftee hasn´t shared anything about it yet either. This is a bit frustrating/worrying knowing we´ve all tried hard to create and compose a nice Gift with the hopes to surprise our Giftee awaiting their response but once a post out here stays out there´s only ??? Like was my Gift disliked, did I do something wrong, etc.

 

Unlike other years there seems to have been an insane amount of delays which is probably causing this whole Secret Santa event to be jammed currently but I hope things might start moving once people start posting their Gifts...

 

By now I hope my Giftee did open up its package because there´s things inside that can expire ;)

My man bigazzhead hooked it up huge for this secret santa! Sorry for the super late post. Life has been insanely busy. Juggling a baby, grad school and the online businesses. 

It's always a pleasure to participate in this event. I wish I had more time to post on here. Will try to pop in more often!

There are 4 folks who have not mentioned receiving their gift.

I pinged them via PM. Hopefully their gifts have arrived and they are just busy with life.

I did get mine, yes. I must apologise profusely for not having posted sooner but I wanted to wait until I was able to take a picture of everything and I've been so busy with work. I was actually going to post a pic of what I got tonight before I went to bed - which, among other things, included some Xenox and Megantik figures, both of which I was especially happy to get - but we have unfortunately suffered a family bereavement tonight which has put a dampener on everything.

 

Nevertheless, many many thanks to my Netherlands Secret Santa, who also included some delicius continental goodies. Everything was also beautifully wrapped, and I really appreciate all the thought that went into my gift.

Awesome, glad to hear from you ;)

Guess that finally allows me to show some behind the scene pics of The White Rabbit preparing your Gift and overlooking the final result before it was send out to you. Wonder what Xenox figures you pulled from the blind bags?

Based on my research I´d concluded there´s a big chance, due to your year of absence out here, you might´ve missed the Series 2 of the Xenox so I hope these made a nice addition to your collection because Gorimiti wise it´s clear there´s nothing I could do for you :)
