Okay gents! I think the box will go out tomorrow, provided I remember where I put Rogue's address and can find a box and I do my little "fancy" stuff I do when I send out boxes. Those of you who have had me as a Christmas Fig exchange know that I make my mail all pretty.

Here is the list in order of how this will be shipped. I did my best to keep requests and keep shipping as close as I could together.

Once the box is ready to go, you need to contact the person you are shipping to for their address. I'm BIG on privacy...and I don't think anyone else needs your address. Call it a total "it's none of your business!" moment.

3. Fidelon
4. Rboettcherjr
5. JCool
6. Falconer
7. Justin M
8. Jackson Williams
9. Lil Curt
10. Dog Ironbones
11. Bronx
12. Bluesecrets

Pictures...okay lets talk. To be honest, I really don't want to see what is in the box myself until it arrives. I like to be surprised! I don't mind seeing what you took or what you added. But I don't want to suck any fun out of it. Because this is supposed to be for the fun. SO...if you must take a picture of the boxes contents, please just link it in a url and give us a disclaimer, so if we don't want to look...we will know not to. Is that a good compromise and will allow for the fun of everyone?

Because fun is the key...if this isn't fun...well then we darn well better make it fun.

I am good with that blue. I only post pics of what I took out and what I added anyways. Now would you take a pic of the contents before you send it and one of what you get back and post it at the end?

I guess, I don't really care to see that myself. But if you all want that...okay.

The dreaded double post...but! The box is going out in the morning mail tomorrow! All prettified and fancy...taped to the maximum because I...am a tape fiend. Mostly I just fear my boxes opening in the mail. Here is hoping Rogue finds it a good box. It isn't huge. I didn't want shipping to cost a fortune. May the crazy fun begin!

Very nice adds. I like the variety there.

A shame I've got another eight people to go. :cry:

Oh it will be just as lovely when you receive it.

As for me..I am SO glad that the Mouth of Sauron found a new home...that is the UGLIEST minifig I have ever seen...scary too...nightmare causing fig...He's much happier with Rogue than stuffed in the dark junk bin I had him in...and he would never had escaped from...I know..I know...Blue...that's the point of him...but *shudder* super scary fig.

Thanks, I tried to include things people might like!

Great, that means I'm off the hook. Six days from delivery to delivery. If we keep this up, we might actually finish this year!

You did a great job.

I am so minifig-centric, I tend to focus on those when participating in giveaway events (often without realization 'til afterwards), whereas your additions really touch on everything -- weapons, shields, slopes, arches, flesh and yellow figs.

It really does.

I know some may prefer to be surprised and not see any of the contents, but I cannot help but be excited by these initial photos . . . especially considering people are giving their fleshies to the box. Oh, yeah. :eyebrows:

At this rate of exchange, I'll have to throw some turkeys in the box, as Blue will have it for Thanksgiving.

Don't count your chickens..um..er...turkeys before they hatch! (I couldn't resist)

I'm glad people are enjoying and having fun. Whenever it arrives back...that will be a great surprise. I think that the priority shipping option is the cheapest and moves it the fastest, plus I tried to keep the distances it travels kind of close.

I am glad. I was slightly worried it was too small of a box. I tried to jam pack it. I don't know how Rogue got it all sealed back up. I had to tape it extreme to keep it shut to get to him.

Looks like so far everyone is having good fun. I am...just watching everyone's excitement. Maybe I'll have to dream up a new twist on this kind of thing...see what other fun we can have.
