I got mine from The Branded1 last night. I can't wait to open it on Christmas!

Got mine from jackolyn today, thanks!. I think i know what it is from the sound of broken glass  :judo:

Sorry to hear that, man. Hopefully, it's superficial. :sad:

The other week I got a MYSTERIOUS package! I'm very excited to open it up on Christmas!  :guts:

Also, I just shipped me and Grail's Secret Schnoz gifts a few days ago. I sincerely hope they get there on time.  :farnese:

I'm so glad that you like it!! I hope the broken glass didn't hurt it too much -- if you need to clean up an unintended nick or two here, just use some black india ink! (Or even a black Sharpie will do the trick) It looks like it fared pretty well, regardless of silly me packing it with a glass frame....  :void:
I'm so happy to see it with a fellow Berserk fan, I couldn't ask for more!  :guts:

I will update later today when I open up mine! I got it in the mail yesterday!  :ubik:

My present was AMAZING!! Dar Klink commissioned THIS badass work of art for me:

It's the main character from my webcomic drawn as Tetsuo from Akira!

Linky also sent me a t-shirt with the "GOOD FOR HEALTH BAD FOR EDUCATION" pill design from the back of Kaneda's jacket.

This is seriously one of the best gifts ever. Thank you so much Link!!!

It was so much fun participating in this.  :serpico:

Here is my Secret Schnoz!! I must admit, I was most excited to open up this one under the tree, that's for sure!!  :ubik:





Awesome card is awesome!



PAINT BRUSHES AND GIGANTOMAKHIA!!! YES!!!   :ubik:
(Now I just need to learn how to read Japanese)  :ganishka:



Beautiful Berserk poster is beautiful!

And the best of all....



This is perfect.

Thank you so much, Gob!!!!

This was my first Secret Schnoz (and first ever Secret Santa) and I will definitely be doing it again next year!!  :ubik:

I'm really glad you like it all. I hope that painting is okay; it's the first watercolor painting I did in ages. Grail was there to make sure I didn't goof it up too much.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!  :guts:

I never get anything handmade for Christmas and that painting is above and beyond what I expected! It's wonderful!  :guts:

Merry Christmas!

Thank you for the wonderful gifts, TheBranded1! I got Master and Commander on Blu-ray, a cool Band of the Falcon lanyard, a scorpion sucker and a cool postcard. I'll post pictures later (I'm at my wife's parents' house for Christmas dinner).

Got my stuff from Grail the other day. Couldn't be happier!



Giganto and the poster, as well as the hand-made comic were all unexpected. Thanks so much again, Grail!

It was very fun to be a part of my first Secret Schnoz event! I'm so happy you enjoyed your gift Gobbles, I myself was very pleased with how the commission turned out!

As for my gift, good ol Canty got my package to me right on time!




aaaand, what was inside the package?


A HnK blind box bust, a Link Amiibo, and volumes of Berserk I hadn't had a chance to buy, which catch me up to date with the series!

Thanks a bunch pal! I'll be getting the new Smash in the near future so I'll be able to utilize that Link Amiibo, which is really nice as a figure just on its own, as is the HnK one! It's great to be up to date again on Berserk's volume release as well!

I hope we can all do this again next year! Merry Christmas!

Thanks Johnstantine, I'm so glad that you like your presents! :ubik: I have to say that I was relieved that you didn't already have Gigantomakhia, cause regifting a volume of manga in Japanese might be tricky. And it looks like everyone else's presents arrived on time and in good condition! I'm especially relieved about that. :ganishka:

They all look good! :isidro: Is there any way that non-US residents can participate?
Absolutely! There has never actually been any sort of restriction against residents of countries outside of the US, so anyone is welcome to join as long as they have at least 50 posts.

I myself live in Canada, I never found it a reason to prevent me from participating. Just be aware that you may have to pay customs on your shipment if its from outside of your home country! (I know that I did.)

Yep yep, definitely! We kinda also took that into consideration when we set the $15 minimum price to spend on a present ^_^ because shipping went up early/mid 2012 and it's expensive now (for instance - I send CD's every now n then and while the cost of the CD might be $5-7, shipping to Europe is min $12.75!).

So glad everyone got their presents on time and safe, so so cool!

Opened my present today, I got Johnstantine! Thanks man! This's pretty cool, I remember hearing about this series from a friend and this's even hard bound - NICE!

Dude, I hope you enjoy it. It's my all-time favorite comic book series. Ever.
