    So I'll start this post with a little back story. My in-laws and I agreed to give one Christmas gift this year in an outrageous gift wrap. So we drew names around August and began to devise our particular wrap of choice. My father-in-law, a big supporter/contributor to my collecting, drew me. I knew it was going to be impressive because he always goes over the top with everything. So, it is with great pleasure that I present to you my outrageous giftwrap. Made from wood and foam board. It is 7'6" tall and is in 9.31:1 scale. The second picture inlcludes a G1 Jetfire for scale. Enjoy!

    Oh yeah, Jetfire was holding a gift bag with a GI Joe Fossil watch. :)

    That's impressive.

    How in the world did they get it into the house without you seeing? Or was it at their place?

    Sweet.
    Don't ever throw him in the crash.
    Seal it in a air tight room to prevent breakdown of the cardboard.

    Thanks for the kind words. I sent him a link to this thread so he could check it out. I currently have two legs and a head in my toy room. I'm picking up the torso on New Year's Eve. Needless to say, I was speachless when I saw it.
    I already invited them to Botcon. :p
