For those who open on The Eve, enjoy the festive times! And for those who sleep in on The Morn (or for those who force their kids to wait), enjoy the rest!

Let the lists (LISTS... :drool: ) commence...

$100 in Gs for Marvel Heroes during the recent sale. And the Deluxe Advanced Pack for 2014.

Kick-*** 2 and Insidious 2 on Blu-ray. And a couple other movies that slip my mind.

And the awesome Hot Toys '89 Mime Joker to go with my Original '89 Joker. :D

[edit] Wait; I see the Pirate's name now... unforgivable. :cry:

Same thing as last year... nothing.Was it something we did, LM? :(

iPad Air (128GB wi-fi) and a Star Wars mug and hot cocoa set.

Bought the wife an iPod nano, a bunch of blu-rays (Arrow season 1, Lost Girl Seasons 1, 2, and 3, Subspecies 1, 2, and 3 along with streaming subscription to fullmoon video).

Bought the kids 32 inch HDTV's, Apple TV's, a Nintendo Wii U for my daughter and for my son a scooter with all the gear and Angry Birds Star Wars Telepods galore for his mini iPad.

If you go back to the Christmas 2012 thread I mentioned that I didn't get anything. This Christmas was more or less the same.

Happy new year, guys! Sorry I haven't been around much, between the malaise of the line and the holidays, some real life stuff, and now this awful cold, I've been occupied. Hope 2014 is everything you hope for and more.

As for my xmas, I just received the last gift (darn late shipping) so it makes sense to drop the list:

Star Wars Blueprints (which may be heavier than my actual coffee table)
SW Vader mug
Samsung soundbar
Cyber Acoustics pc speakers
navy blue robe
quad copter
a Planet Express sticker
a Kershaw Ken Onion Leek knife (which I also got for my sis)
lined driving gloves
TIE Interceptor on lightning deal (bought for myself)
Droid Factory 6-pack on super clearance price (ditto)

I figured I'd go with the commercial thread (which the economy love$) before the emotional one. :p

Star Wars-wise, with soooooooooo much product out there, this year awoke with quite a haul of stuff:
- Yoda socks and beanie cap in a vinyl bag
- Absolutely Everything You Need to Know book
- pencils, stickers, & Grab Bag (or something) Pack
- mini calendar (cool sketches each month)
- Jelly Bellys
- light-up green blade saber (very small, kid-sy style: it makes BLASTER sounds?!?)
- 300-piece puzzle
- drink cooler, plastic tumbler cup
- Lego mini FO TIE Fighter
- playing card deck (cool case, too)
- 2 boxes of Kraft Mac & Cheese (in Vader, R2 packaging :) )

- new yoga mat (thicker, to save on the ol' knees)
- very nice satchel bag and portfolio
- stepstool (small and portable)
- lip balm (only gift I expect each year! :D )
- gift cards
- Steelers, Pirates shirts
- sturdy, wooden "treasure" box
- soap (inside joke) pack
- sweats

I got my own gifts this year. Back around Black Friday, I was debating whether I wanted an iPad or a PS4 and I ended up going with the PS4. I got it with Battlefront and Fallout 4, I played both games for a couple of days that first weekend, and I don't think I've even turned the system on in the entire month of December. So, Thursday I went and got myself the iPad Mini that they had at Walmart for $200 and I love it. I should have just bought the iPad in the first place. The PS4 is probably going to get traded in at Gamestop this weekend.

Other cool items:
