Welcome back everybody. Itís the time of year when Iím lucky enough to receive a gift from a secret Santa and likewise, subject some poor victim to being roughly Santaíd. Possibly from behind.
For anybody who doesnít know, a group of friendly neíer do wells here on the pages are joining in the second annual Secret Santa. We build and send gifts of Lego vignettes to a randomly selected recipient. This idea was started by Mr Dave Kaleta last year and I hope it goes on for many more. The original spec called for an 8x8 vig but this was quickly ignored or forgotten.
This was the lovely surprise I received from my Santa somewhere else on the globe. But what is in the box?
Zoinks! Itís a Stu in the box! That was the title I was given by my Santa, who then flattered me by saying they would leave the rest up to my creative and joking nature. I have thanked them already but indulge me while I thank them here again. It is such a lovely thing that somebody would take the time out to create something unique just for you.
It also plays absolutely to my sense of humour and whimsy, and spookily I received it just as I posted my last MOC which also featured a black and white jack in the box and my siggy. HmmmÖ. I have to say, genius rendition of the minifig beanie hat in cubedude scale.
So here is the list of suspects for this year. It must be one of these
Master SHifu Leo J
Guess away! Sorry, you want some clues? Well I tell you what, Iíll give you some clues and/or red herrings and make of it what you will.
Thereís an awful lot of black in there, but no grey with a yellow stripe?
Cubedude Stu head?
No salami jokes, peeing minifigs, bionicle or Trans pink?
Have a look at our group if you want to see other Secret Santa gifts and have a guess.
Cheers to my Santa. This now sits proudly next to my Heath-made gift from last year as a favourite part of our Christmas decorations.
Let me take this opportunity to wish you all and your families a very merry Christmas and a prosperous and healthy new year.
Ah, I was way off! Do you planning on entering the MocAthalon? If so, and if you don't have a team "The Expendables" would be glad to have you. I've sent you an invite to the group, hopefully you can join!
Quoting Stuart Delahay Well, my ... Only Shifu guessed correctly (and he could have edited his guess.....) so he wins a large package of bacon, black pudding and pork chops. All ready for collection from my fridge ;) Happy new year everyone!
No way I edited my guess! I'm looking forward for a hearty meal of bacon, black pudding, and pork chops! Woohoo! XD
Well, my Secret Santa this year was the wonderful Kevin Walter! Thanks so much Kevin, it now sits proudly in my home even though the rest of the Christmas decorations are packed away for another year. Only Shifu guessed correctly (and he could have edited his guess.....) so he wins a large package of bacon, black pudding and pork chops. All ready for collection from my fridge ;) Happy new year everyone!
Doh! I already guessed Kaleta once, but I'm gonna have to roll with him again on this bad boy. Nice one. Merry Christmas to ya, Stu. Have a great holiday (complete with shiny new ABS!) and a wonderful new year!
