BIG thanks to Andy for what was (hand on heart) the best secret santa I have EVER had :D :D :D

Not only did I get some Commodore Format cover tapes that I was missing, but also these two amazing mini Mini posters :) they will be framed and on the wall soon

Thanks again
dude it was my absolute pleasure, when i realised you were into minis i realised there was something you might like, I was gutted that there werent any classic car shows I was invited to in that time as I would have bought something for a mini from there (I'm an ex mini owner, albeit I recieved one as a project car for my 18th birthday then we got a bill of about £700 to make it road legal, back in 1999 it was more than they were worth). It was a 1987 advantage model and would be worth.....I have no idea how much now.

These days I go all over the north of England with classic car clubs as my dad owns one of the few Rochdale Gt's that exist and are road legal, and everyone knows eachother, I think every road legal one is in Les Brown's book that came out this year

Well from my Secret Santa I got a Lego Batman v Superman glossy photo, a Terry Pratchet Book, an ace Luke Skywalker Booble-Head and one of my favourites a large Toblerone.

Excellent pressies, thanks Secret Santa. Still not sure who you are though.

I did take a photo but I always have problems uploading them on here for some reason.

Brilliant to hear everyone seems to have really enjoyed SS this year and as yet i've received no complaints or queries so that's fantastic!
my not so secret santa sent me one of the few heat reactive mugs i didn't already have (space invaders), a Dr Who "WhoOlogy" book, some chocolate coins and some Mario lucky eggs all very much appreciated :)

I mentioned that I was looking at collecting Famiclones and plug-and-plays and lawks a-lordie, that's exactly what I got:

Ultimate TV Game - Famiclone that looks like a PSone (albeit with a crude relief of a skateboarder who looks a bit like Sweetchuck from Police Academy), looks like it plays actual Famicom carts too so there's another thing I'm gonna have to start trawling eBay for!

N-Joypad - already have one of these but the box is less sun-damaged than mine and the controllers aren't completely fooked.

25-in-1 Intellivision - my 10-in-1 doesn't even load half the games on it, I'd actually been looking for one of these.

Mega TV Drive Challenge - I'm certainly intrigued at how easily tennis games and Arkanoid clones play with a steering wheel (actually, the latter might not be too bad).

My SS doesn't actually need to put himself forward, having made the elementary mistake of leaving the myHermes label with the sender's details on it - the last thing I'd have expected from the organiser of the whole thing! :lol:

Mind you, I'd have had a very good idea who it was anyway considering I've already seen all of these on his YouTube channel.
Based on my previous experiences with MyHerpes i felt i had no choice but to follow their rules to the letter and include the slip hoping my recipient wouldn't recognise my name, obviously the size of the package limited my postage options as it was bloody massive! hope you enjoyed it anyway and very glad to hear you watch my channel :)
Visit www.youtube.com/replayretro . why? well erm, cos it would be awfully friendly of you to take a look i guess, you don't have to though, nobody will make you *sob sob*

I finally got time to open my RGSS having arrived back from Christmas with parents! So good to be home! Yay!!

So, Secret Santa, you did a great job! Much thread trawling or perhaps you know how much I like Commodore??!

My SS very kindly sent me a copy of Commodore: A Company on the Edge, SID Chip Sounds CD, and some gold coins that I'm currently munching my way through :)

Thank you Santa and I hope you had a very merry Christmas :D

Well I'd love to know who got me socks. I mean seriously, socks... :evil:

Just kidding, how can you complain about Street Fighter socks. :D

Pleased that you are pleased with the presents. :D

So what was actually in the Mario eggs as I picked them up on a whim as an extra present.
