    Oct 11, 2017, 9:27 AM - 2017 SECRET SANTA THREAD - Entry now CLOSED! #1

    Ho Ho Ho!

    The Holiday season is almost upon us and to celebrate I'm hosting 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 15th. 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. It's a Christmas exchange, please be grateful. Not everyone gets a "blow you out of the water" kind of gift. Don't expect it.

    Last year went smoothly for the most part. Here's hoping for another successful year!

    I'd love to do it. I can ship internationally and I'm obsessed with Blade Runner (the original 1982 film, not the new one ) but I donít mind what I get.

    I'm in. I'm in Brazil, shipping domestic would best, but I can ship internationally.

    Right now, I'm really into movie statues. The Blade Runner wooden unicorn, Maltese Falcon, Indy's fertility idol. I'm starting to learn how to wood carve so I can make this objects.

    I know this is a very wide field of interest, so, since tools are really expensive here in Brazil, any 20USD carving tool would be a great gift. Even a nice piece of wood would do, really.

    But, to make my Secret Santa life a little bit easier, here are the movies/universes/things that I also really like:

    . Star Wars (I'm a sabersmith and love the thin neck hilts)
    . Lord of the Rings
    . 2001: A Space Odyssey
    . The Martian
    . Blade Runner
    . Apolo missions or just about anything Nasa realated
    . Space mission patches (love, love, love)
    . Indiana Jones (really love the Holy Grail itself and Henry's diary)
    . Fake future money and fantasy golden coins

    YAY!!!!!! I am in, of course. This will be year three for me, and this is without a doubt my favorite holiday tradition.

    I'm good for shipping to anyone in the continental US.
    Thank-you, in advance, Michael, for hosting this thing. You always do a great job, and keep it fun.

    I love to build models. I love replicas and props... And I have to include that I love artwork, because the Marvel canvas I got last year just blew my freakin' mind! It was the coolest gift I got last year... from ANYONE!

    My interests currently include:

    STAR WARS
    STAR TREK (TOS, TNG, VOYAGER, DS9)
    LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY... (THE HOBBIT movies sucked, though.)
    THE ORVILLE
    MARVEL UNIVERSE (THE MOVIES, FROM IRON MAN TO GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2... LOVE THEM!)
    <PARTICULAR INTEREST IN IRON MAN>
    GAME OF THRONES
    ,
    Honorable mentions would include: HARRY POTTER, INDIANA JONES, TERMINATOR, popular sci-fi classics like ICE PIRATES, EXPLORERS, ROBO-COP...

    SO, big sci-fi fan, obviously. I can't wait to see what you come up with! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

    List updated!

    Seems I forgot to add my own wish list.

    I love, in no particular order:

    - BTTF
    - Indiana Jones
    - Jurassic Park
    - Star Wars (not the prequels, but everything else)
    - Star Trek (TOS and TNG)
    - James Bond (Primarily Connery)
    - Ghostbusters (Original)
    - Red Dwarf
    - Game of Thrones
    - Doctor Who
    - Legend of Zelda
    - Fallout

    Now here's the rub, I've got most of what I would want from these franchises, generally. Escpecially at the $20 level.

    Since my Santa won't be a secret they are free to ask me what I already have. Here's a few specific ideas though:

    - Grant's raptor claw from JP1. The one he uses at the start of the film to scare the kid.
    - High quality JP park brochure. I have the cheap one you can find everywhere but would love a good one.
    - Kidde fire extinguisher (used in Jurassic Park)
    - The flares from JP1 (as seen with the nightvision goggles and the fire extinguisher)
    - Grey King Pelican Case, again, as seen in JP1. See where I'm going here?
    - Master Sword or Hero's Shield from any Zelda game.
    - Any Sword from GOT, especially Longclaw.
    - Stark Banner/Flag from GOT
    - Nike Mags (size 12)
    - A good and proper Indiana Jones fedora. Those last two are certainly a "wish" though, very expensive!

    Not particularly into art but definitely into hand made props. Not into toys/figures but open to it as my kids will love them I'm sure.

    Of course I'm in and open to international shipping if needed.

    My interests include:

    SW
    POTC
    Marvel (particularly Spider-man, Wolverine/X-men, Ironman)
    Batman (89 is my preferred choice)
    Indiana Jones
    JP
    LOTR
    X-Files
    GOTG
    Most things Disney

    I'm not opposed to kits as I enjoy the build aspect but I'd prefer not to receive toys/figures if possible. However, as MB pointed out - my kids would still end up enjoying them if that's the direction my SS decides to go.

    HEY!!! I noticed the secret santa thread is only stuck to the "replica props" section... I remember there are always a lot of people who miss it cause they don't catch it before the deadline. I thought it might increase participation if this thread was temporarily stuck in all sections for a week or two, to give people a fair chance to see it. not everybody checks out all the sections every other day like I do. Just an idea.
