Still thinking of some cool items to add (hint, hint - PM me if you're near me on the list and want specific parts) :sly:


I think I've mentioned it before, but maybe before shipping the packet to europe one of the american participants could put some custom weapons or altbricks foliage in the package.


Or some Mirkwood polybags ;)

I'll throw some in there, but I can't promise that it makes it all the way to you!

Josh and Sean, leave the altbricks alone once I send it your way! ;)

The potential of rare US loot excites me!

Going to start having a rummage for pieces today and build it up over the next few weeks. Not sure how empty or full the box will be by time I (and frisky after me) get it, but i'd at least like to know what I can possibly put in there from my own collection :)

Just so you guys should have some idea, I couldn't find a really big box. The one that I sent is approximately:

14 in. Long
10 in. Wide
3.5 in. High

Included in the contents are 1 small classic castle set, One small complete model, 5 or so minifigs, and somewhere between 500-1000 parts.

The box arrived at my place yesterday and I have already sent it on its way to the 2nd stop on the list!

I'm attaching 2 pics here for those who are wondering what treasures might be contained within.

The first is the overall content of the box before I took anything out. You guys are lucky, I didn't need much from the box since I was early on the list - I just took one shield I didn't have yet~!

The second picture shows what I took out and what I added: 1 removed 1 ovoid shield (chromed) and replaced it with a Spartan CMF, stained glass panel, 4 vintage torsos, and a collection of weapons. I also added in a small Vikings related item that is not pictured.

A very generous contribution, JCool! but did you check in side that black box :? ? I included a small classic-castle set inside! Oh well, heads up to the next person on the list, I guess!

Thanks!

Wait, that wasn't the box we were supposed to keep closed and not open until Doomsday?! (i.e. the return of Galidor) :lol:

I did take peak inside, it's a nice item (I won't spoil the surprise). I also liked the note. Already have the set though and figured I'd let someone else enjoy it :)

Right at the end of the list so all these in/out photos and speculation are going to kill me. Need to go on a blackout!
