Retro Junk Box IV: A New Hope is all packed up and ready to go!

Since I need to ship this out before I move, there might be some overlap with RJB 3.

:pole_position_blimp_big:   Box Will Ship Out Around March 1st! Sign Up By February 27th!

 

 

Here's how the Retro Junk Box works:

 

What It Is: Someone (me this time) fills a large USPS Priority Mail Flate Rate Box full of retro-related items and sends it to another member. They take out what they want, fill it back up and send it to the next person. It keeps going until it returns to the original sender.

 

History: Click Here For The Full History

 

Who Can Participate: This is open to members in good standing who have reached Orange Status* (or successful traders with at least 50 posts here), have been a registered Atari I/O member for at least 90 days, live in the US and have been active in the forums or chats during the last month. (See your Avatar to see the fruits you have earned).

* Orange Status is mysteriously rewarded between 100 & 150 posts. 

 

What is Required: Participants must send the box out within 3 days of getting it, pay for the postage to send it out ($18.75) and must post a photo or video of what they took out. (leave the rest as a mystery!)

 

Items Taken Out MUST Be Replaced With Items Of Equal Or Greater Value: The Retro Junk Box celebrates the generous and friendly spirit of the forums! Those who participate will be expected to contribute to the spirit of the Retro Junk Box, and must replenish the box with items of an equal or greater value than what they chose to take out.

 

Those who abuse the generosity of other participants will be denied the opportunity of participating again. Egregious violations will result in the offending member losing prize and event participation privileges, or worse, being removed from the site.

 

Other Notes: Since it is free to do so with Priority Mail, I would insure the box for $50 to help pay to fill another one in the unlikely event that the USPS ever lost it. Please keep the box mostly (at least 51%) gaming related. Newer items are ok if they are retro related in some way. Please try to be fair in what you replace value wise and please no duplicate games on the same system. Please avoid putting in broken items/games if possible.  Please use packing material to fill in nooks and crannies to prevent items from getting broken. (Plastic bags work good for this)

 

:spot: Feel free to reuse and decorate the box! :spot:

 

If you meet the requirements and agree to the terms, please let me know by responding to the thread along with what state you are located in so we can begin to order the list. DO NOT POST YOUR FULL ADDRESS HERE    :)

 

Also, if you need to be on a certain spot on the list, because you won't be available later, let us know (for instance, if you are going on a trip or work assignment).

One Day Left To Sign Up!

 

Here's the current confirmed list in first draft of mailing order.

This is based on 2 factors: (1) Location & (2) Past Lists*

* I tried to make the order so that you are getting the box from someone you have never gotten the box from before. I thought this would make it a fresher experience!

 

  1. RickR OR
  2. Retrogamer81081 TX
  3. Rowsdower70 TX
  4. jmjustin6 GA
  5. StormSurge CT
  6. chas10e ME
  7. correagonzalez NY
  8. AtariBrian NY
  9. Willie! NC
  10. nosweargamer TN!

Fun Fact: This might be the only time the RJB starts at one stated and ends in another  :D

I would like to do Junk Box V: The Retro Strikes Back after this one if I may?  I have some really good stuff to start off another box I was going to do for another website but already have done a couple for them and would like to do one for Atari.IO as a thank you for welcoming me to this community :)
