    This thread ain't dead yet.

    Wow, good things come to those who wait! I just got this in the mail today and I am told there is another box on the way. I can appreciate good art and these are amazing! I could only dream I had talent like this. My game room is up for some serious redecorating now. Looks like I am going to be dropping some coin at Hobby Lobby on frames in the near future. Thank you very much!

    Good news keeps coming. We had another person receive their package today. It was post marked NOVEMBER 25th! I saw lots of bad USPS shipping times, but this one takes the cake. Big props to this person having the patience of a saint.

    He never had a chance, really.

    That's just part 1. A second box will be there shortly... Or so I'm told.

    I just got my first print back from the framer. I went with this one since I loved the look and it had to be custom. The metallic blue metal frame really worked well with this one. It was from the Texas Pinball Festival, signed by both Borg & Franchi and numbered 3 out of 5 but I'm not sure what the story is behind this print.

    Another box showed up today. This thread just won't die. Once again I'm blown away. A super awesome pinball swag pack that would have been plenty of gift on its own. A pinball rockstar shirt, a super awesome pinball show swag pack with a bunch of things in it. I think there is a super awesome pinball show air freshener in there? Do I even want to know what that smells like? Pin Shades, some pintastic tumblers a Batman detective comic with hand drawn art right on the cover and the infamous paper flock 30 years of stern pinball book. Following that thread and knowing what those backers went through for the last four plus years to even get that book makes it even more special. Thank you!

    That Detective Comics cover is fire.

    Quoted from alexmogil:

    That Detective Comics cover is fire.

    I didn't know the history on this comic, so I looked it up. Looks like to celebrate 1000 issues they released 84 different cover art variants of the comic, including a blank cover like this.

    https://borg.com/2019/03/24/all-variant-covers-checklist-detective-comics-reaches-landmark-issue-1000-this-week/

    This blank variant has hand drawn Batman art directly on the blank cover variant and was signed by the artist Christopher Franchi. It is really sweet.

    Thanks again to my Santa for the circuit breakers! I hadn’t needed them up to now, but they are coming in real handy this weekend. Blew two fuses, so far.

    #1518 2 years ago
    Quoted from TonyScoots:

    173 days till Christmas!

    More than halfway to Secret Santa 2021? Wow.

    #1519 2 years ago

    Hey, Christmas loving peasants!!

    Reposting jellikit link to Project Pinball, bringing pinball machines to Children's Hospitals and Ronald McDonald Houses across the United States!!

    https://projectpinball.rallyup.com/ce-halloween-ultraman-spookypinballmachineraffle

    Such a great initiative! For example, can you imagine being a kid, having to wait while you get your chemo treatment? Some actually get to play a cool pinball while they receive their treatment. Doesn't fix anything, but no doubt brings some much needed smiles!

    You can contribute some amount OR buy a raffle ticket to win either a Spooky Halloween or Ultraman pinball. Do both, contribute & participate in the raffle (there's a BUY ticket button on the page)

    Great way to make it feel it's already Christmas!

    P.s. Canadians can participate, too! Lol

    I already started shopping!

    Quoted from jellikit:

    Kinda crazy to think that in a few months, we'll be shopping all over again! Says a lot that it feels like we just finished out SS 2020. Riding on this thread for a year, onto the next one makes it seem to happen so quick. I'm looking forward to SS 2021!

    #1522 2 years ago

    As a new pinhead, I can’t wait to be a part of it.

    #1523 2 years ago
    Quoted from Atari_Daze:

    Haha, I have a nice stack of gifts started too. I think 5 things so far

    I got a newb Canadian pinhead last year. Hopefully they enjoyed the gifts.

    I’m more excited to buy.

    #1526 2 years ago

    2020 was the first year I participated and it was a great experience.
    I surely enjoyed the research trying to find a really nice gift. Also the whole covid thing with the shipping delays etc made the experience a bit adventurous as well. I worried more if and when my S.S was going to receive his gifts than when I was going to receive mine. This says a lot about this project I think and captures the whole idea behind it. It's mostly about giving and less about taking.
    Can't wait for 2021 Secret Santa.

    #1527 2 years ago

    So I learned about the Christmas pickle from this forum. In honor of those who represent I found one at a yard sale today. Sounds like fun.

    I start shopping right after Christmas. Usually have a nice stash of fun stuff picked up at great prices that I squirrel away for the next Secret Santa.

    Bought more presents this weekend

    #1531 2 years ago

    With how shipping went last year, pretty much time to fire this fucker back up hey girls and boys!!?!!?

    #1532 2 years ago

    Thanks Secret Santa, I honestly didn’t think I’d use my “tune-up” kit because I buy lots of Titan bands. But my slingshots on Seawitch snapped! No prompting, no rips or tears. I just came in one day last month and the left slingshot was busted, and then a few days ago in the middle of a game the right just let loose out of nowhere! Pretty angry with Titan, honestly I didn’t realize silicone bands go bad so fast!
    So thanks for the kit, I ended up just using those and I will only be using traditional rubber for slings and flippers again. Silicone just doesn’t hold up!

    I'll create a new thread for it before Halloween this year and try to give a little extra time to people to get things out. Just a couple months away at this point. I'm not going to wish the summer away for it to get here, but it is definitely a nice little oasis during the 6 months of winter we get here.

    I'll definitely start signups before Halloween this year and try to get everyone their Secret Santas about a week earlier in November to try to help combat any holiday delays there are this year.
