Fantastic Mr Ming! The snow is particularly effective too. Really lovely!

Fabulous stuff. I laughed long and hard at Button Man and Mongrol.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Oh Pete, Pete, Pete, you made me do an embarrassing guffaw on the tram when I got to the doctor's first "hnnnnnng" (bonus points this year for not singing!)

Comrade Green is sentenced to 20 years in the iso-gulag for referencing a ideologically unsound individual.

Ming - took me a moment to get it, but it's awesome (lovely effect on the edge of the snow)

Eamonn - I'll be sticking in a bid, some choice items there, and well done for your tireless fundraising throughout the year.

You absolute bastard, Wells.  You've ruined Christmas.

Lovely work everyone so far!

Pete - You had me going for way too long with this!

Steve - This is great, though I think based on a storyline I haven't read yet!

Ming - Excellent Lego work as always, I've never seen a lego snow angel and this is inspired!

Eamonn - A lovely tribute well done! Also mighty chuffed that I'm batting cleanup for it :D

Loved the punchline under Mongrel. Listening to all the tributes on the Book Club - fascinating and heartfelt.
Frank would know.

Of God! I teared up so many times during Eamonn’s tribute. Carlos was just so lovely, wasn’t he?

Genuine comments now.

Loved it, Pete. Well played.  I was utterly convinced.

Steve: great stuff.  Thought it was one of Mike Carroll's photomanips for a second, which is a good thing.

The snow angel was really, really nice and reminded me of the Lego Movie.

Eamonn- dying to listen to the Carlos tribute and kicking myself for not sending something.  I'll definitely enter the raffle too.

Particular shout out to Owen on the memories - 'the King Carlos' moment summed it up so well!

Cheer Steve :) Amazing work compiling that all so quickly Eamonn and really touching to hear everybody else's Carlos memories. I can't believe it's well over a year now. Or even that he's gone at all.  :'(

Also I'm so glad I saw Frank's image just before going to sleep as well, this will be swimming through my mind all night.

Ha ha ha! Just saw Frank’s image! What a sight to wake up to! Such a beautiful image, very powerful, yet so soft and tender.

And good gravy, Little Pete has never looked so magnificent! Merry Christmas indeed!  :lol:

I expect a bidding war between Regened and Hachette's extension for that piece.
