It's that time of year again. Our annual tradition of giving a bit of star wars joy at Christmas is just around the corner.

For those that don't know how the secret Santa works basically we get everyone to do a wish list confirming they are in for the exchange, the wish list is locked up after a certain time period, you are given the name of one person who is on the list to send them an anonymous gift. The gift sending limit is around $50.

I will make a separate wish list thread in the vintage chat section and link it in this post. For now please sign up in this thread and begin your wish list in the other one and I will send you a pm to get the address information. Please understand if you sign up, someone else will be getting you a gift so don't forget to get theirs. Also in order to be more efficient I think we can lock the wish list thread around October 15th, and that way hopefully all presents can be bought and shipped out by November 15th. This will allow adequate time for everyones gifts to make it around the world in time for Christmas.

**Not a requirement but part of the fun is sharing pics of your gifts here after we open them. We generally wait until Christmas Eve or Christmas day depending on your own tradition of when you open gifts.**

Here is the wishlist thread:
*To be created tomorrow*

***Please be vigilant that the item you buy for your fellow Tigger is not reproduction or paint touched up. Mistakes do happen, so you wont be hung if it is, but you might get a pretty good flogging. ***

*-----Usual pics will be added tomorrow, to hard to deal with on phone-----*

With the board being so low we will use this as a sign up and wishlist thread. If you want to take part please sign up and make a wishlist here by October 15th.

Going to message previous participants in the case any want to take place and may get a notification.

Or maybe not so fit...




I am in as always! My wish list is below.

Dear Santa,

Instead of a lump of coal, I hope I haven't been that naughty, I would love to find any of these vintage goodies under the tree.

- Any Kenner U.S. mini rig, or creature with box, except dewback.  Doesn't have to be mint as long as they display well. No inserts  or other contents needed.

-The Kenner U.S. box for any vehicle, playset, creature, or mini rig except, Snowspeeder, Creature Cantina, AST-5, Speederbike, and Rancor. (Decent displayable condition please)

- Beater figures to populate my playsets and vehicles.  The more the merrier. Duplicates are fine.  They can be incomplete and condition doesn't matter at all as long they aren't broken.  Unless it's a one armed walrusman!   Laughing

- Kenner U.S. Instructions for any vehicle, playset, or mini rig, except Jabba playset

- Any Kenner U.S. Card back with POP and in displayable condition.

All participants should have gotten a message from me today. As explained in the message you will get another in the next 24 hours with your childs name on it. At that time I will also ask for addresses. This is to keep it fair, as I will randomly draw names since we have participants from various countries.

All participants should have gotten a mail with their "child's" name on it. If you didn't receive yours let me know so I can send another.

Please try to have all gifts purchased and shipped by around November 15th so everyone can get them in time for Christmas. Addresses will be sent out as soon as I get all of the confirmations of them. Have fun shopping and a big thanks to all the participants.

Everyone should have their "child's" address now. If you didn't get it let me know so I can resend it. Please get wishlist in if you haven't done so.
