    Opened up my loot from my Secret Santa.
    Kind of blown away with the amount of awesomeness.

    Got an Iron Maiden translite and lighted frame!!!

    A wall clock that looks like a giant pop bumper!!!

    Three Rage Tilt T-shirts!!!
    I’ll be wearing the Hail Santa one tomorrow, although I particularly love the hail Satan one.

    A Whiz Bang Pinball shirt, Indiana Jones keychain plastic, black anodized Pinball with “Eddie lives” on it (soon to be captive ball in my machine) and some Rage Tilt stickers buttons and a beer koozie.

    Pretty bitchin haul!!!

    Thanks Santa, you rock.

    Opened my SS present. Wow! This is gonna get framed and hung in the arcade. It’s also signed...George Gomez, Greg Freres, Dwight Sullivan, Pat Lawlor, and the other 2 I’m at a loss...I’m sure I’ll feel dumb when told. I love stuff like this, and signed...Thanks SS!!

    PS. One of the mystery signatures has got to be Larry De Mar. Still working on the other. Such a cool piece!

    Opened my SS gift tonight and I am so stoked I put it up as soon as I found a nail and hammer! So awesome! THANK YOU! It will be going in the gameroom when I can get the maiden out of the dining room and down there its a mess at the moment! Thanks again!

    Okay, I couldn't wait any longer. THANK YOU SECRET SANTA! I am completely over the moon with my gifts!

    The first gift is a Mystic 8 ball, which reminds me of my sister who passed away a few years ago. She got a Magic 8 Ball one Christmas MANY years ago and we had loads of fun with it!

    Next is a cool metal brain teaser/puzzle. This reminds me of my brother, who is also no longer with us. He had a big assortment of puzzles like this that we would figure out (or TRY to figure out) when we were kids. This one might take me a while to solve, unless I cheat (the answer is online, according to the box).

    Next is an awesome KISS foam cut-out. KISS (the 1979 version) was one of the first pinball machines that I fed a LOT of quarters to when I was a kid. It was within walking distance of my house in the laundry area of an apartment complex. My friend David and I played it - a LOT!

    Last, but certainly not least, is a generous gift card for The ModFather. I'll use it to spiff up my WOZ with a few of the wonderful items they have available. (I could probably pick them up, as the address listed for them is only a few miles from my house!)

    My SS gifts were incredibly generous and my SS probably has no idea how much they mean to me. THANK YOU SECRET SANTA, and THANK YOU LesManley! Merry Christmas to all!!!!

    I tried to wait til tomorrow..i swear! Made it 5 hours. I love my gifts! Pinball related tools that i really appreciate and need! (Worklight,magnetic tray,coil sleeves,some LEDs, playfield nuts & screws,etc)and a sweeet ass pinball machine! Ya,that's right! 1979 Tomy atomic pinball in the orginal box which indicates this is an asain imported toy! This thing is radd! It has energized pop bumpers and active sling shots! Flippers launch the ball pretty good too! Remember when all the cool toys took them big ass batteries?! It takes 5 "D" batteries ill pick up for it. This is bad ass! Appreciate it Santa,thanks!

    Coupe maritime beers, chips, couple needed pinball maintenance items and a TNA cassette, glad I still have a tape player tucked away somewhere! Kind of funny, the one with banged up box had potatoes chips in it, lol. No biggie, the flavour won’t change!!

    On the last day of Pinsmas, my santa sent to me...
    A generous Mezelmods gift card.

    20191225_090354 (resized).jpg

    To my not-so-Secret Santa, thank you for all my goodies! Also, thank you for making this Christmas extra special by doing what you did. I'm sure I'll see you at TPF in March, so expect a personal 'thank you' and handshake then.

    To everyone, thanks for following along! And...

    My wife and I opened our Pinsanta gift. We Loved the Star Wars wrapping paper and the Home Alone handwritten theme on the greeting card envelope.

    Secret Pinsanta was good to us. A mug with a double danger shop rag and a few stickers made the trip up north safe and sound thanks to a ton of large bubble wrap. There was also a small plastic gum ball dispenser, a nut driver kit and a pack of #44 Eiko bulbs. Accompanying that was a nice (super soft) Dirty South Pinball Club t-shirt.

    Pinsanta must have been spying on me because the best think was the Black Knight Titan ring kit and screw assortment kit. I totally forgot to order the ring kit during the Black Friday sale.

    Thank you so much Secret Santa and lesmanley for putting this together. It has been so much fun

    Today's the day...MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    I sincerely hope everyone had a fun time with the Secret Santa Program again this year. Thank you all for putting forth the effort to make this program special, it really is as fun as we all make it! The growth in participation was awesome and I had a great time running it again. Tune in again in about 11 months and we'll give it another go! Just a couple of updates and reminders for this year...

    *You don't need to open your gifts by today, you can wait until whenever you want, just please make sure you post pics and give thanks to your SS whenever you do!

    *I've talked to a couple people about potentially late gifts due to post office delays and I have passed on that information so all parties should be in the know now. If you haven't yet gotten your gifts and I haven't sent you a message about it, please shoot me a PM so I can look into it for you.

    That should be it. Now just sit back, enjoy the Holiday and live vicariously through others as we watch all the pictures of the gifts roll in...

    Here are my SS gifts! I'm so proud of myself for holding out till Christmas, it was especially hard since for awhile the SS gifts were the only things under our tree, so they taunted me every time I walked by. I really look forward to doing this every year, so throughout the year I pick up fun stuff when I see it to use as SS gifts. This year I had so much stuff, I put myself in twice so I could use it all. Because I was in twice, I sent out two packages and got two packages in return, so I want to make sure to thank both Secret Santas!

    SS Gift #1

    You guys never cease to amaze me with your detective work and dedication to the program. I got this box with packages individually wrapped nicely inside. I opened the small heavy one first and was super surprised to find a shaker motor! Very generous! I have external subs on a couple of my games, but no shaker motor in any of them, so now I should start a poll, which game would it best serve; Ghostbusters, X-Men LE, Iron Maiden or Ripley's Believe It Or Not. I'll have to check and see if it is Spike specific, so that may narrow down my options a bit. In any game I'm sure I will enjoy it...the family upstairs maybe not so much.

    Next, I opened the bigger box. I was really surprised. It is a translucent orange Stern apron. I love these colored aprons. I had a blue one for my X-Men Pro, a red one for my Wrestlemania and I have a purple one for my Ghostbusters. I used to buy them from Stern's site, but they stopped selling them. I wanted one for my Iron Maiden and thought orange would look good with the game, but since they were not being sold anymore, I just left it black. My SS read my mind though...or maybe I posted about it somewhere I don't remember...either way, it's awesome! I have the IMDN Premium translite to put in my Pro, so with the art blades, it will have a very yellow / orange Egyptian look and the apron will look like it should have been there from the factory! Pics to follow when installed.

    Finally, there was a nice Game Exchange pinball shirt in the box as well. I can never have enough pinball shirts and I will proudly wear it while getting my game on.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    SS Gift #2

    This box was huge and heavy. I had no idea what could be in it. The only ideas I gave this SS was some vireland colored inserts for the mode tree in Iron Maiden and Villains tree in X-Men, and those are super small so this box was obviously not that. I opened the outer wrapping and the box inside was nicely wrapped with a card too. The thoughtful card said they saw in my profile that I was working on my gameroom (it's never done, always in a state of flux in seems) so they said that this gift should fit in nicely. I opened the box to a ton of peanuts, after digging through them I still wasn't even sure what it was. When I pulled it out, I couldn't believe it. My SS sent me a Run DMD Clock for my gameroom! Not something I ever imagined getting, but it will definitely be appreciated! I have to figure out how to set it up, but I already have a special spot picked out for it already above my pins. I can't wait to get it hung for everyone to see. Definitely pics coming here too!

    A huge thank you to this SS, you really went above and beyond! Thankfully next week will be another short week so I can get my gifts installed and start enjoying them!

    Well, my wait has ended. Turns out the gifts were individually wrapped, so it wouldn't have mattered if I had peeked. Gotta love the Naughty/Nice reversible wrapping paper.

    First gift was a pair of socks. I'm weird because as a kid, socks would have been the worst thing in the world for Christmas. Now, I have to wear dress socks daily for work, so I love anything that breaks up the monotony of boring dress socks. Plus, I have a student that periodically asks what socks I'm wearing. He likes to mix and match his. Middle School is a fun age.

    My second gift is some stalker level tool buying. I posted about one of the giveaways back in November and was looking for some Magnetic nutdrivers. Lo and behold, I now have some. Next gift brings more Merc with the Mouth socks. (I've got them on right now and they are super comfy.)

    The final gift was big and squishy. It was either 5 or 6 t-shirts rolled together or a weeks worth of socks. Turns out, it was a Pinshield. It is really cool and I know that it is going to get a ton of use. Problem is, they only sent me one.
    Me thinks it will be moving around as needed but it is set up on, what else, Deadpool right now.

    My wife got in on the fun as well and got me that cool unicorn cat Deadpool shirt. I think I might be too easy to shop for.

    Thanks to my Secret Santa, you did an amazing job. Thanks to lesmanley for helping me with my gift and for making this the best thread on Pinside, every stinking year!

    Merry Pinsmas! Opening my SS gifts this morning was exciting, I cannot say Thank you enough to my Secret Santa.
    I got a really cool joystick light switch, an LED light strip, lights for my sneaker that change color with to the beat of whatever tunes you are playing, and a scratch notepad that my 5 year old promptly decided was from Secret Santa to her. I have a tournament coming up this Saturday that I can't wait to wear my sneaker lights to.

    My thoughtful SS did awesome! This is so much fun every year and has really boosted my enjoyment of Christmas the past three years.

    First off I have some awesome candy to enjoy.

    Some pinball must haves, a led flashlight complete with a hook to hang hands free while working on games, some zip ties and some micro fiber towels to clean all of my games.

    A make pinball great again hat

    Some Marshmallow fluff with a highly recommended fudge recipe printed on the label that my kids are itching to make.

    A Tron collector poster and a signed pintastic poster by Steve Ritchie, Chris Ganner, Tim Sexton, Joe Balcer and Chris franchi artist of the poster!

    Some awesome lighted pac man silhouette wall Devore that are just so cool.

    And if that was not enough, a Cointaker under cabinet flasher kit that I will install on my RCT!

    All of these gifts was accompanied by a letter explaining the reasoning behind the gifts and a peek into the stalking my SS detective did.

    Merry Christmas to everyone and thank you to my SS and Les for brightening mine and everyone’s holidays that participate or follow this thread.

    I anxiously await my recipients post on the gifts that he received.

    Opened my gifts today. Thank you SS! Awesome gifts and made my day. Loved the clues. Will look into framing the Bally/Wiiliams official document.

    To my surprise a second package arrived on Christmas Eve! I must have sounded like a stuck pig as I squealed in joy.

    I’m like a child when it comes to surprises and Xmas. There are very few good surprises as an adult and Xmas gifts may be the only good surprise you get once a year.

    I was completely blown away by my SS. He/she went above and beyond and put a ton of thought into these gifts. This came as a total surprise and was absolutely perfect for my barcade! I couldn’t be happier!

    1) official Black knight Pinball/Bar stool
    2) new plastic set protected on both sides for Pinbot
    3) ENH frames for Pinbot
    4) A Buzz Aldrin Autographed photo from the Apollo 11 flight!!

    Thank you SS for making me feel like a kid again this Christmas!!!

    As the day is winding down, I would like to say Merry Christmas to all!
    I finally opened my gift from my SS, and I would like to say thank you and wow!
    This will look great in my small game room and will be cherished for a long time.
    My Secret Santa’s letter stated that I did not make a list, which I didn’t, I don’t post
    A lot here on pinside, and I do not do Facebook. But I got to say I couldn’t be happier
    With my present. Thanks again SS and to Les for a another great year!

    And I got a magnetic bowl! I don’t have one of these!! I’ve fallen victim to the dreaded screw fell and rolled under the playfield too many times to count. Ty SS!!

    Just now had a chance to post my stash.

    Thank you to my SS!

    Funny thing is, I had the BBOE in my shopping cart with my last order, but I removed it for no real reason! 6th sense I guess?

    Is your SS a reformed serial killer? That note is...

    So many amazing, thoughtful, and generous gifts again this year.

    I just wanted thank LesManley again for running this show and my SS for the tremendous pinstadium gift. (was going to try temporarily install them on my STtNG and post pictures, but the mirror blades are not magnetic and so now I'm just waiting for my MMR to arrive)

    LesManley can probably get you in contact with the SS for that person, and you can ask them.
