    Last year BigBadBoomBox started a great tradition with the first NH Yankee Swap-ticon. This year Knightsaberami and I are continuing that tradition, by hosting the 2010 NH Yankee Swap-ticon at our house:

    When: Saturday December 11, 2010 at 1PM
    Where: Motor_Master's Lair.

    I'll PM directions to those attending.

    Like last year it will be a pot luck affair. If you've got a dish you're dying to have, bring it along. Please post in the thread with what you plan to bring so we can all plan accordingly.

    The Yankee Swap-ticon will be the same format as last year, perhaps with a couple of interesting twists (perhaps). For those not familar with a Yankee Swap, talk to Dr. Google and he'll explain it all to you.

    The price limit on the gifts, like last year, is between $20 and $30 max. However if someone is dying to bring a MISB Fort Max, I won't complain :D 

    Just like last year, the gift must be Transformers related (toy, video game, comic, etc). Exceptions can be made on a case by case basis.

    We'll have movies, music and of course good conversation. This year's Swap-ticon will feature Motor_Master's B/S/T bargin basement, so bring along anything you're got for sale or trade.

    So get your strategy set and gear up for the 2010 NH Yankee Swap-ticon. To quote big pappa Shane:

    If you still had that Victory Saber giftset, I'd suggest that :D 

    Personally I try to pick something that isn't too common like a store exclusive or a figure that's hard to find or newly released. Hopefully we'll see some Generations Thunderwing before then.

    I have an idea, and I want to ask a question, but it might ruin what I plan to bring. I'll just bring it and see how it goes.

    sorry meant to put something in there for food. We will bring a cranberry eggnog pie ( so good you'll gouge eyes for the last piece.) and I'll swing in a 12pack of coke. Anyone let Mal know we're doing this?

    I figured putting this in a public forum would cover the bases, but feel free to PM him if you like.

    I'm in and I have my swap item ready to go. I'll bring some actual eggnog (not in pie form) and something else. It looks like we may have a new face at this gathering. The guy's name is Mark aka saphiro314 on here. He works at the Salem TRU, and is kinda like my inside contact.

    How did you guys like that eggplant parm? I feel kinda bad that it was cold when you had it. If you all really liked I might just bring that again.

    Definitely going to try!

    I'll definitely be there so long as I can get the day off. It's true that I work at the Salem TRU, so it's busy there 'round these times, and Saturdays are rough. I will try to switch with someone though and make it. Not sure what my swap item will be but I have a pretty good idea that my food items will be either wings or brownies, depending on how much time I have to prepare :) 

    Looking forward to hopefully meeting all of you guys! Nate's mentioned that you're all pretty cool, and this would be so cool!

    Got a txt from my buddy Mark and he said he'll definitely be there as well as participate in the swap.

    I will be bringing that Eggplant Parmesan again, but I'll make sure it gets heated through this time.

    Finally, I'm kinda in the market for an Ultra Skyfall since they are showing up at TJ Maxx and Marshalls. I just thought I'd put that out there.

    No really finally, I have a Target exclusive Animated Purple Shockwave/Activators BB set available if anyone is interested. I also have a loose G1 Grimlock in pretty good condition I may be willing to trade.

    Hey Gentlemen, I am interested in coming, where is this meet located (city/town)? I'd love to bring some customs but I'll most likely bring a couple in-package TFs :)
