My gives have been posted to Bronx. Hopefully they should get to him by the weekend or this time next week at the latest.

Thank you to Bronx for all his assistance in allowing me to participate.

I was going to wait for my 'takes' to arrive, but I've sent a picture of my gives to Bronx, so could post that if needed.

Good point ;) Now that my turn has passed, I'm living vicariously through the posts ;)

There is no need to now. Wait until you have your 'takes' to photograph in their entirety and then you can share for everyone to marvel at.

Thanks for participating!

What is our current status on the box?

The status is: Immobile

The box is sitting at my front door awaiting the overseas package of andhe's exchanges. He shipped them last week and, in my international shipping experience, it usually took approximately ten days to two weeks to arrive.

This hasn't been forgotten or neglected. Just didn't have anything new to report as we're still simply waiting.

My 'takes' arrived today, so hopefully my 'gives' will arrive with you soon.

I'll update this post with my picture links tommorrow when I'm on the computer.

Thanks again.

I've yet to receive the overseas additions. I do not think it is cause for concern just yet, as the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas has been receiving quite a bit of rain that has caused flooding for the last several days. Couple that with the Thanksgiving holiday, and I'm sure the postal service is simply being hindered by one or both of the aforementioned.

If it has not reached me by Wednesday, December 02, 2015, I'll ask that the remaining participants provide their thoughts on how we should proceed. We can either proceed without the overseas additions and when they arrive I will ship it to whomever currently has the box, or we can continue to wait for them to ship everything at once. I am really fine with either option and am really leaving this open to the rest of you on this second half.

Let me know.

What what!

The box arrived earlier this afternoon and I am so thankful I had a large flat rate box on hand because there was absolutely no way everything was fitting in the original medium rate box. Everything just managed to fit within the large.

I finished packing everything into the larger box, taped it all up, slapped the address label on ... then, I realized I never photographed my small exchange.

What I took:

    - Persian helmets (x3)
    - Roman Commander helmets (x2)
    - Hobbit headpieces (x2) (Thorin / Fili)
    - Tauriel (x1)
    - Light flesh head (x2)
What I added:

    - Profile brick 1x2 (x80) (light & dark bluish-grey / sand green)
    - Various castle minifigs/torsos (x15-x20) (Fantasy Era trolls, Crown Knights, Kingdoms, Scorpion Knights, Fright Knights, etc.)

I've already shipped the box (tracking will be below) but, after returning home, I noticed I never packed the helmets or heads I set aside. I won't be sending these out, and while I feel a little bad, I think my exchange was more than fair.

It's on its way, Jarek!
