    Trapped in the whirlwind that is visiting relatives during the holidays, aka checking on all the MAS sticks I've put into new homes over the year.

    Should've just opened my TTSS gift when I received it vs. waiting 'til Christmas! Will post pics when I get back home next week.

    There been One but I am on top of it, and I know the particular situation and its already resolved.
    But with 13 participants I am hoping to get feedback to see if there any issues. As it's kinda hard to keep track.

    Some of the Tracking numbers I received didn't work.

    Anyone who hasn't gotten anything yet PM me, and I get to the bottom of it.
    If I messaged you about a delay, your case is being handled.

    If you your self is the cause of the delay and I didn't speak to you, please PM me ASAP.

    I have received my gift today. It is pretty sweet. I won't be posting pictures tonight. But, tomorrow early in the morning I will upload and share the pics. :)

    My gift came in a few days ago but work has been crazy and New Years Party prep took up some of my free time. I have pics all snapped but I want to shoot a short video clip of one of the gifts later today before I post them.

    I don't mess around. Maybe a new category for srk tech talk award should be best TTSS gift.

    Which you'd be in the running for. Unless another JDM or Dremel pillow makes the rounds...

    Alright sorry it took me so long to get this up. Holidays had me away from my computer. So here we go.

    This is what received and I could not be happier. Do not know who the secret santa was but, whoever you are thank you so much!!!

    so breaking it down

    I received a Dark Knight Returns hardbook. I will definitely be reading this at my desk when I return to work tomorrow.

    A Cammy pop Figure also will probably go on the desk

    Next we have something that I believe is a HAPP 360 joystick? It also came with some long stem buttons either being Industrias Lorenzo or Happ as well. I could be wrong on this. I am not too knowledgeable with these types of parts. But, rest assured that they will be used on an arcade stick.

    kdfxE5F.jpg

    And last but, not least....... we have a Gundam kit that we have to assemble. Oh boy, I definitely did not think that this would be something included. I will have to assemble this at home as it does look a bit big. But, once this bad boy is built it will be going on my desk the next morning.

    Once again thank you for the gifts to who my secret santa was. I really enjoyed this, and hope everyone else had a good holiday!

    It's an optical joystick that will fit into any MAS stick. Great if you want an American stick with IL buttons. I've been working on a bunch of these because of a friend of mine who loves MvC2.

    Whenever a new When's Mahvel?!?!?! game is about to come out, the P360's seem to resurface all over the place.

    Yep, if I could know my TTSS and what they want before black friday ( 11/24/2017 ) next year it would help a lot.

    Good stuff from all. That Happ/iL 360 is quite nice. I refurb'd a SFII Anniversary stick and used one of those. Really want one of my own, but wireless. Pretty sure I can pull it off.

    Nothing to thank me for as I wasn't part of this year's TTSS; I'm going to defer the thanks directly over to @armi0024 who was your real TTSS. :)

    Those were actually from me. Which is confusing because my super secret Santa gifts were sent really late so he should posted @armi0024 gifts first .

    Whoops. My bad; I didn't see the extra rows in @Darksakul 'st list. Not that @armi0024 deserves any less props for the other goodies, but now @STEZO_ONE gets serious props for picking an awesome kit. :D

    Yeah STEZO_ONE came to me late asking can he send a gift without receiving one in return.
    I didn't mind as he just donating some items to someone, so I made the whole thing random.

    So I look at the other 12 people and rolled a d12, got a 4 so the Bonus Round went to Yenjoi.

    That's awesome. I was wondering what the whole extra secret santa thing was about. When I initially opened your package, I thought I was the bonus secret santa since I first saw an SNES. haha

    No, the SNES was legit and nothing Bonus or anything. I saw something stick related, and rather than send off spare parts I figured I plant the seeds to a possible new stick build in the form of a SNES.

    Oh if you want I got a extra SNES NTSC scart cable.
    The NTSC consoles require the Scart cable to be wired a little bit different, 220u Caps on each of the Red, Blue and Green Lines instead of 75 ohm resistors.

    I actually planned to buy this, but it was incrediably hard to find online and the only one I found was a used poster for like $90+

    Look at the assignment list, you were just happen to be the winner of the Bonus Round Super Secret Santa.

    Yeah, I saw the list just earlier today. School has left me out of the loop about this bonus gift until now. I understand what happened kind of got thrown off due to the timing of the packages.


    So I got home not that long ago due to night classes. Here is what I managed to open up from my secret Santa in this case @armi0024

    yYtHNwm.jpg

    Here is the breakdown
    - 8 OBS-MX buttons (red and blue)
    - 1 Red Mesh balltop
    - A marvel themed Flip Calendar
    - A xbox controller themed Christmas ornament
    - A Bandia Samurai Spiderman Figure
    - 1 Spider-Man Lego keychain and 1 Spider-Man pin

    I was worried they didn't arrive directly to you (even though I did have tracking). Please give those Seimitsus a brand new home. Please tell us how the game is. I was also concerned that you might not be able to play it as it is an import. Enjoy!

    @Yenjoi funny thing is that the buttons I sent you were developed by @armi0024 . They didn't have translucent il convex buttons before he ordered them. Not sure if they were limited but definitely wouldn't exist if it wasn't for his work. Enjoy my friend.
