2 weeks! I'm surprised it took that long, but guess there's added traffic over the thanksgiving weekend and run up to Christmas. Glad it's on it's way again.

I seriously had some torrential downpour in my area (there were nearly 500 accidents in the span of four days), so the length of time doesn't surprise me, especially coupled with the Thanksgiving holiday.

However, Jarek received the package several days ago and has been mighty quiet. I'd like for him to provide a status update very soon.

Sorry for the quietness. Work has been hectic. Been helping process new soldiers into my platoon and we're short handed. Anyways, I'm just waiting on a bricklink order for some parts I'm putting in the box and it should be heading to the next person hopefully by Saturday. I'll keep an update.

We're closing in on a week since your last correspondence and there has been no such update.

What is the status of this? This breakdown of communication is a detriment to this event. Please update accordingly as soon as possible.

I should have the box out between Friday/Saturday. Sorry again for the delay, my 4 month old went to the ER over the weekend and I haven't had much time to take pics and go to the post office.

Think those most of your takes were from my gives! Glad the (partial) dragon found a good home. I had him sitting round for a while in the hope that I'd get the extra pieces, but never got round to it.

Hope your kid is doing better now.

I didn't know the dragon was missing a leg at first. I looked thru the whole box looking for the other leg lol.

My son is okay now. The past weekend sucked though (because) we were there for four days.

If andhe were nearby I probably would have dropkicked him. I was searching through the box for the other pieces for several minutes, as well. It wasn't until I decided to look at his original photo of "Gives" that I noticed it never had that left leg. Haha.

I'm also glad to read that your son is doing better.

The eagle has taken flight and should arrive at Rick-Ricks' place by the 21st.

Hey all, The package arrived today (day after the estimate, but it is the holidays.)
I was wondering if anyone was opposed to me waiting until this weekend to go through the box. If anyone is I'll gladly go through it sooner, it's just a busy week, Christmas and all.

WYSIWYG. Apologies if the condition of the dragon was unclear.

That was totally a dropkick out of love. I have a violent American humor and realized late that may have come off as me being actually upset.

Once I realized a leg was always missing, I was cracking up with laughter that I spent time looking for something that was never there to begin with. That's what I was trying to convey. Sorry for any confusion.

It's Christmas. Take your time.

If you can shoot it out before New Year's, well, that would be awesome. If something comes up and you cannot, please, simply let us know here. Thanks and enjoy!

Be sure to refer to the list in the second post and double check on whom you're shipping to. The list had to be edited for some removals a short while back.

Merry Christmas, all.

Hey, all, with life and everything I won't be able to mail this out until the fourth, I'm sorry for the delay.

The delay is unfortunate but the update, above all else, is very much appreciated.

Happy New Year.
