Oct 24, 2016, 8:39 AM - 2016 SECRET SANTA THREAD - Entry now CLOSED
**I haven't been particularly active this past year. It's been a really rough one for me. However I see the annual gift exchange as a great heart warming community builder so you can be sure I wouldn't miss it! Despite my recent absence rest assured that the Secret Santa will receive my usual devotion. **
Ho Ho Ho!
The Holiday season is almost upon us and to celebrate I've gotten the go ahead to host a Secret Santa gift exchange once again. No matter what you celebrate at this time of year you're welcome to join us in the spirit of giving! Anyone who wishes to join must let me know by posting in this thread by NOVEMBER 6TH so that I can get everyone matched and that they can get their gifts out in time.
Here are the rules:
1. Any current member of the RPF as of the posting of this thread may participate (ie: no joining now just to participate). HOWEVER, by joining you are agreeing to both give and receive a gift. If, for whatever reason, you are unable to send your gift please let me know immediately so that I can arrange a work around. People who do not send gifts have in past been banned. It's not worth it for a $20 gift! PLEASE only join if you are going to participate.
2. When you sign up you must state whether you wish to ship domestically or internationally (please include what country is "domestic" in your post). In your post you're also free to include your interests and a wish list to help your gift giver with ideas. By all means post "wishful thinking" wants but also put some realistic ideas in there too.
3. Although there is no limit to the cost of gift you are encouraged to keep your gifts at about the $20 range. Creativity will undoubtedly be appreciated by your recipient! Something handmade with $20 worth of materials can be worth more than spending $100 at a store. You are of course able to send a gift of any value if you like but understand that what you receive will likely be in this range.
4. I will keep a list of names updated in this thread - please PM me if you are interested and include your address in the PM - When I draw names I will send the Secret Santa his or her recipient's details. The person you send a gift to will not necessarily be the person that sends you a gift. IF YOU HAVE MULTIPLE ADDRESSES please use the one that you will be at for the holidays. Better for your parcel to arrive early and be held for you than have it sit on the step for a couple weeks waiting for you to get back from your parent's place.
5. Domestic gifts must be in the mail by December 16th. International should be sooner than that. If you don't want me harassing you please post a note saying that you've shipped either in this thread or via PM to me. If you need to push this deadline back a little bit you must contact me. It is still your responsibility to get the gift to your recipient on time.
6. A gift will be considered "lost" if it doesn't arrive by the end of the first full week of January. If your package had tracking you are not responsible and a new Santa will be provided. If your package did not have tracking you will have to send another gift.
TRACKING: Tracking is not mandatory but if you DO use tracking you are not responsible should the recipient not receive their gift. If you choose not to get your gift tracked that's fine but if the gift doesn't arrive you're still on the hook for it. This way you can still mail it any way you want but you know where you stand depending on the shipping method.
7. Although this is a "Secret" Santa you are more than welcome to let your recipient know who you are if you'd like to.
Finally, not a rule but in the spirit of this exchange please give a "thank you" in this thread to your Secret Santa and let us know what you received. Not only is it the polite thing to do but it lets your Santa and myself know that everything went smoothly.
Last year went smoothly for the most part. Here's hoping for another successful year!

Suppose I should put my interests here.
I have most of what I want from my favourite franchises. I'm really in to the new Star Wars films (not the animated stuff). Would love a Kylo Ren helmet, was going to pick one up from the run in the JY this past summer but the $ never came. Lol Would also love a TFA Trooper helmet. Those are my "wishful thinking" asks.
Aside from that it would be cool to get Rey's blaster or Ren's saber. Perhaps some other prop from TFA or Rogue One.
Other interests include Star Trek (TOS & TNG), James Bond (Connery, Lazenby, Dalton, and Craig), BTTF, Doctor Who, Classic Ghostbusters, and Indiana Jones. Also into vintage video games in a big way.
Not into toys or action figures so much. But if I do receive them I'm sure my kids will enjoy them.
Oct 24, 2016, 10:03 AM - Re: 2016 SECRET SANTA THREAD - Entry now OPEN!
Im in. I love doing this
I love just about anything to be honest lol
Raiders of the lost arc
Battle star galactica

Oct 24, 2016, 10:43 AM - Re: 2016 SECRET SANTA THREAD - Entry now OPEN!

Count me in, and I would prefer to ship within the USA.
My interests are:
DC Movies / TV universes
Star Wars (OT ,TFA, Rogue One)
Marvel Cinematic Universe
Or something else that is really cool!
Oct 24, 2016, 3:16 PM - Re: 2016 SECRET SANTA THREAD - Entry now OPEN!
I would prefer domestic shipping within the UK, but will post to Europe if necessary.
My interests are all over the place, but I'm gonna try to keep it to just one topic here, props from:
Star Wars OT
Star Wars: Rebels
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Star Wars: Rogue One
Star Wars: Force Unleashed (1 & 2)
Star Wars: KOTOR
Not really into figures. Particularly into droids and creatures. Anything made by my SS, rather than store bought, would be greatly appreciated! The more obscure the better!

I'm in! This looks awesome! I'd prefer US domestic shipping please. Also, my recipient would probably enjoy their gift more if they have similar interests to me.
I really love star wars, OT and TFA mostly (I'm not a prequel hater though, lol). I don't have a 3D printer, so printed blasters and other props would be fantastic! I also really like Tom Holland's spidey, and I want to put together some of his outfits, so pretty much any of his t-shirts would be awesome. Again I don't have access to a 3d printer, so web shooters would be extremely appreciated!! Gaurdians of the galaxy is pretty great too so anything from that would be amazing. I love Doctor Who too and I don't have the 4th, 5th, 8th, or 12th doctor sonics. I'm also a recent fan of Back to the Future, so that kind of stuff would be cool to. What else to say? I don't like deadpool, and I don't much care for DC stuff. I've actually never read any marvel comics, so a Spiderman comic you think is good would be awesome. But best of all might be a hand made prop.
P.S. I take a medium shirt size
EDIT: I guess I should add a general interest list...
-Star Wars(OT, TFA, RO)
-Guardians of the Galaxy
-Back to the Future
...but honestly I'd be happy with anything

Oh man, i'm in! Thank you Michael for once again hosting this. I know it's a lot of work.
I prefer Domestic (U.S.) but I'm ok with shipping internationally if needed.
I would very much prefer some sort of prop if possible, but if not I'd wear anything related to my interests off of Shirtoid (I wear size-large). Bootleg movies/ anime wouldn't hurt my feelings either hehe!
Anything Lovecraft related
Destiny, Fallout, Dishonored... I guess any video game props
I'll add other stuff if I think of it.

I would very much appreciate something made by my SS that I can put inside my display cabinet and look at with a smile and have as a memory

Oct 25, 2016, 1:07 PM - Re: 2016 SECRET SANTA THREAD - Entry now OPEN!
While I truly appreciate the sentiment whoever gets me can treat me like any other recipient. The biggest thanks I could receive is everyone getting their gifts on time so I don't have to spent my Christmas vacation chasing people.

I’d like to join! I'm a newbie to the site, so first time for me c: Preferably domestic (US). I don’t have any figurines and don’t intend to start down that path. In the way of video games, I have an xbox 360 that gets turned on every night… because the loud fan makes great white noise to help me sleep. Beanies, ballcaps, and scarves welcome, if that helps? No shirts pls, can't wear em.
Marvel (Winter Soldier! Bucky Barnes is my bby) movies, tv, some recent comics
LotR, The Hobbit
Always Sunny (Charlie Kelly = spirit animal), Archer
Survivor (outwit, outplay, outlast mofos)
Mad Max: Fury Road
Doctor Who (Ten!)
Yu Yu Hakusho, Rurouni Kenshin
SG:A & SG-1
RPFing since 2002
Oct 25, 2016, 6:27 PM - Re: 2016 SECRET SANTA THREAD - Entry now OPEN!
I'm in! International shipping, obviously...
I prefer 1:1 props and costumes, not a huge fan of figurines, toys etc... but anything like that can get handed on to my boys, so still a viable option.
Doctor Who (still don't have a TARDIS or a Weeping Angel...)
Pirates of the Caribbean
Superman, Batman and most of the main superheroes...
Lord of the Rings
Anything old, historic, vintage, etc...
