    I just came home to a fantastic box from Bigaltemple!! He crushed my porch pretty bad but I'm moving tomorrow so it all works out. The sad news is ill have to pack these up and put them in storage tonight :slight_frown: I'll take some pictures later on after I finish up packing my condo.

    Forgot to mention that the box was packed good enough to withstand a direct hit from an atomic bomb.

    Two people have recieved boxes but haven't posted pictures, and still waiting on 3 people to confirm they have shipped or are shipping very soon, I sent messages to parties it may concern.

    Great hauls guys, making me proud for running this , keep it goin for the last few!

    I love that tall Funkwerks tulip. Does it have the heart etched on the bottom?

    Is there an email or something? I looked all over their completely civil Apple-powered website and could not find a single thing. I need a handful of these stic- wait there's a shirt? Oh classy Jebus do I need this.

    According to their site they have no phone... Which is odd but I can deal with it.

    I'm pretty sure that isn't a line in Eye of the Tiger.

    You are 100% correct. It's a common mis-heard lyric. Really "thrill of the fight", or something like that.

    My target and I have talked twice but haven't ever finalized a trade. His box goes out today with one mighty heavy piece of glassware!

    Sorry I have been a little quiet this BIF I have a lot of real life things going on. Looking forward to the haul.

    I will have mine up soon, just got a new camera and trying to figure that part out too.

    Cheers, Matt
