    Um, I'm confused as I'm already getting messages from Proxy the elf!

    What the hell does that mean? I'm not supposed to be getting cheered all over on yet! I just barely started to stalk my target!

    Aunt Bertha sounds lame, and Captain America socks sound awesome. As a matter of fact, I'm one of the weirdos who loves getting socks. New socks feeling is a wonderful feeling.

    I'm sorry :( I haven't heard that song in a long while and it didn't even cross my mind.

    Still, as soon as I get my gift I have to put up the Christmas tree so it has a place to hang out!

    This has the added bonus of pissing off my wife, because she is a scrooge and hates it when people put up Christmas stuff before December.

    So if I'm murdered, I apologize Santee, but just know it was worth it!

    I don't think I really have much to add to what I sent in my initial IM to start, but figured for the sake of helping a prospective Santa:

    If you forum stalk me, although I posted a lot in the thread I did get rid of Disney Infinity so figures for that wouldn't be a great idea.

    I am 2X for shirts, but I work in an office so I'm not able to wear fun stuff very often.

    Otherwise do whatever you like - see a fun toy or Lego kit or game? Chances are I'll enjoy it. I like to read, eat, drink booze/coffee, art, play games both digitally and board games, and I'm really, really easy to please. The only thing I ask is if at all possible please don't go 100% digital gifts like Steam because my son and niece get a kick out of the whole "physical package from random internet person" factor of secret santa.

    Well, this is potentially worrisome.
    Got an email from my Santa, containing nothing but a picture of my Amazon wishlist.

    Worrisome in part because it's a bit weird being stalked by a person who wants me to know I'm being stalked. It feels, I don't know, unwholesome for some reason.

    But also because I've been really bad about keeping that updated. I mean, nothing on the list has come off of it, but it just hasn't been updated recently. Sorry about that Santa, I'll get on that later today. Would do it now, but I've got an appointment with the doctor soon.

    A wonderful email arrived yesterday, full of merriment and joy! And also a question I will enlist the help of forumers with! FIRST THE GIFTS!

    4tbCwVX.png



    HOLY JOLLY BALLS OF STEEL THATS A LOT OF GAMES!!!!!! Thanks Santa! And the email says there's physical stuff coming later too :D

    AS for the aforementioned questions santa posed.....
    With that said, Santa's got a question for you.
    I'm planning on bringing back Krampus in a big way. But, he's not going to be the shaggy headed goat horned demon of ages past. Today's kids just aren't that easily frightened.
    I mean, look at this:

    Even back in the day those kids don't seem that worried about a goat demon cramming them into a wicker basket to carry them to hell for their trespasses against good behavior. A bit shocked, maybe, but that kid looks mostly bored by the whole thing.
    And his sister? She's sitting there picking out which apple she's going to eat for breakfast while her brother, mere inches away, is being crammed into a wicker basket by a demon that looks like second rate fetish cosplay (seriously, he couldn't even be bothered to match the feet up)....

    So, clearly, Santa's got to step up his Krampus game something fierce to stay up to date.
    So, your opinion here: What'd be a more terrifying transport to hell for the naughty little monsters?
    Some kind of robot ninja dragon, or a giant space bug?

    Now, I already said Space bug but I thought it would be interesting to see what you guys also figured.

    Also, my santa appears to be unaware of my PC being fixed now so I now have info on him/her!!! Reverse stalking in prgress! They also live somewhere in the Rockies. I'm thinking it's a bear.

    Thanks @MNC Dover ! I love it. It's an amazing artbook/collection. I've never been a fan of actual comics (comic properties sure), but this is amazing. I had no idea something like this existed and it goes well with all my Street Fighter/Megaman/BoF/FinalFantasy/etc artbooks.

    Thank you so much. I will post some more images of the what's inside later today. The book is currently in the den of the sleeping girlfriend and woe to he who disturbs her slumber!

    I love all the gifts. Thanks again!

    I grew up watching TF as a kid (born in 76, so I was 8 when it arrived in NA) so I know how amazing G1 can be. After collecting toys, shirts, and lunch boxes, I moved on to the comics. They were so completely different than the show. I mean Ratchet as the main character? Shockwave imprisoning Megatron and leading the Decepticons? Prime had no head forever? Spiderman showed up?

    So yeah, they were bizarre in the best kind of way. Very campy. Then I got to read a UK issue featuring Jazz checking up on some kid. It was artistically different, a more serious story, and had Autobots/Decepticons taking real life-threatening damage from blasters and missiles. It shook me a little since I was so young, although nothing prepared me for the death coming from the movie.

    Anyways, I saw this book, and after much stalking, found you loved TF. Can't wait to see more images from the book, since it looks like a good mix of the classic Marvel comics, the UK stuff, and more modern takes on the franchise.

    Glad you enjoyed it and happy holidays!

    So um, are you just not a Metal Gear Solid fan at all, or...?

    The only one I really put a ton of time into was MGS5. I finished the original MGS on playstation, but I was way more into Gran Turismo back then.

    That doesn't mean I'm not a fan, just not super lore knowledgeable. Is this a bad thing or something? I still really dig the keychain.

    I don't see a picture of Krampus there in Big Classy's post.
    But a quick GIS for "Krampus" turns up this as the second result:
    kwupsm89vpry.jpg
    And it certainly seems to fit the description of a bored child being stuffed into a wicker box by a goat demon while his sister picks through a bowl of fruit.
    Definitely need to update Krampus' look.
    Personally, I think I'd have voted for the robot ninja dragon over the bug, but then I don't like bugs. They creep me out a bit too much to tie in with Christmas celebrations.

    That said, my Santa has dropped a gift bomb on me that struck home today, so I guess I get to post this:
    GiftGet_zpsa504f3d7.gif
    First, of course, the Christmas Tribble has to make it's inspection. It's tradition, and it hasn't been wrong about an explosive yet.
    clflqk7x1hqj.jpg

    The package inspected and opened by the gentle, loving blade of the Christmas Tribble reveals a blue bag and a note rendered unreadable by the flash on my camera.
    72n0vo871o63.jpg

    But a closer shot reveals that this is mearly package 1 of an unknown quantity gleaned from my Amazon Wish List
    7yrhgr4yyp50.jpg

    Typically, I'd wait to determine how many packages where enroute, then open them all at once.
    But the Christmas Tribble is a bit testy about being woken up so soon after Halloween, and it still has the exacto knife.
    It's best to do as the tribble demands in these situations.
    3kqela12numc.jpg

    Seasons 1,2 and 3 of Fringe. A show that I was only able to catch sporadically due to having to work when it aired, but enjoyed immensely when I could catch it.
    Gonna be a marathon coming up soon. Should be entertaining.

    Edit: Also got an email from my Santa.
    Subject: Do you
    Body: Enjoy puzzles?
    I'm not particularly good at puzzles, but I'm up for a challenge if you've got one to share Santa.
    May have to bring in the forums if I can't figure it out though.
