    Gargamel Lucky Bag 2015 Thread (w/ spoilers)
    Re: Gargamel Lucky Bag 2015

    I haven't heard back from the email inquiry yet either. Regardless, i'll buy one from a US provider if the email thing didn't work out. Took a year off from buying a bag last year but definitely don't plan to miss this time.

    edit. and also like list time, i'd be great if whoever gets their bag first and posts pics to their tag them as spoilers or create a new thread altogether.


    good luck everyone

    Re: Gargamel Lucky Bag 2015

    I'll start up a spoiler thread right now. This thread should probably be just for discussion so people don't accidentally see any spoilers

    Why don't you just change the title to Gargamel Lucky Bag 2015 (With spoilers)?

    I don't see the point in having two threads. Creating two threads makes this one completely irrelevant and pointless. When it can still be of good use.

    Re: Gargamel Lucky Bag 2015

    I think Lucky Bag threads have been traditionally split in two, but that was before James' introduction of the spoiler button...

    Re: Gargamel Lucky Bag 2015

    ^ Correct you are. Most lucky bag threads, be they Gargamel, Super7, etc., are generally split into 2 threads.

    Re: Gargamel Lucky Bag 2015

    I am probably alone in this, but I kind of hope some spoilers show up online before the bags go on sale in the US. The only reason for that is I'd like to know if there is stuff in the bags this year that I want or if I should save my money for other things. I've been happy with the last two years bags. So I doubt this year will be any different.

    Re: Gargamel Lucky Bag 2015

    Maybe Mr. Flynn will do us a solid and post a bag reveal before Thursday, like he did back in 2013...

    That's the danger of starting a Lucky Bag thread to early in January, painful to wait for reveals.

    Gargamel Lucky Bag 2015 Thread (w/ spoilers)
    Re: Gargamel Lucky Bag 2015

    That is partially correct.

    Gargabags have typically had only 1 thread marked 'spoiler'.

    S7 bags sometimes had a second 'spoiler' thread apart from the one posted in the S7 shop subforum.

    I agree that the second thread seems redundant. We also have a 'new Gargamel' thread for any news/info on the bag availability.

    Gargamel Lucky Bag 2015 Thread (w/ spoilers)
    Re: Gargamel Lucky Bag 2015

    I made another thread because I've seen in the past that there were two different threads about Lucky Bags each year. I think the point of having two separate threads is just so the discussion about buying, acquiring, emailing, etc can stay here, and the spoiler thread can just be about the toys... Makes it a bit more organized.

    So is this thread just for discussing having two threads? Or are we still talking about the lucky bags??

    Gargamel Lucky Bag 2015 Thread (w/ spoilers)
    Re: Gargamel Lucky Bag 2015

    I would agree. I just think, (especially now that the spoiler things is available) that it's completely silly...to have a thread titled...
    GARGAMEL LUCKY BAG 2015- That's a bunch of whinging and moaning and has 5 pages of content only to disappear into the abyss for another thread titled....
    GARGAMEL LUCKY BAG 2015 (Spoiler thread).

    In 6 months from now..when people use the search function for "lucky bag" two threads will come up. 1 that has information and the other a 5 page thread that goes into the abyss.

    Zero reason why we need two.
    Just retitle the tread. ;)

    Or might as well have
    1) GARGAMEL LUCKY BAG 2015 (Posting of wishes and hopes only)
    2) GARGAMEL LUCKY BAG 2015 (Complaints and whining i.e. no response)
    3) GARGAMEL LUCKY BAG 2015 (Spoiler Thread: Actual content of)
    4) GARGAMEL LUCKY BAG 2015 (People who missed out and regret it)
    5) GARGAMEL LUCKY BAG 2015 (Discussion of merging threads into one)

    Re: Gargamel Lucky Bag 2015

    Well since nobody has posted in the new thread, that means it can be deleted. :razz: And since most people seem to think two threads is one too many... Merge time!

    But please make sure that when talking about a certain toy someone has pulled, put that comment in spoiler tags too. Don't want to spoil anyone's surprise by saying "OH HEY THAT RAINBOWGLITTERGLOW POTATOZILLA IS DAMN SEXY"

    Agreed. And I would edit the title to "With spoilers"
    I don't use the spoiler tag but will wouldn't want to ruin anything.

    It feels like it's pretty safe to assume if someone is checking out the thread at this point that they want to see some toys.

    My God, you guys sound like a room full of lawyers! Let's get to it. Anything on YJA yet? I don't see why we cannot post pictures as long as no auction is specifically revealed. How about Instagram? Nothing?

    Hopefully they will start coming in soon! I believe some go on sale from US vendors on the 22nd, so then 2-7 days for shipping... So probably late this week or next week we'll start seeing the spoilers. ;)

    EDIT: Just checked lots of tags on IG, nothing yet.

    Checked YJA for good measure, nothing.

    Looks like we have to sit tight and patiently wait for bags to reach their destinations... Or sacrifice a mailman or two for good measure.

    And Dumbledore dies.
