I'm considering joining this.  I'm in Florida.  It'd be the first time I participate in this.  So the stuff to add into the box is all retro or just gaming related?

The stuff in the box should be retro or retro related (so something like a new Mario amiibo would fine, since it is related to something retro).

The majority of the contents of the box should be gaming related, but  there can be some other retro stuff in there too, like movies, toys and trading cards.

If you have some time, take a look at some of the past junk box posts to get an idea of what people take out and what they put in.  That's probably the easiest way to get a good impression.  As nosweargamer said, it's pretty much gaming related, mostly retro.  Pop culture items are good too.  DVD's of 80's movies are good. 

PM me if you need more info.

  1. nosweargamer (TN)
  2. Ballblazer (MD)
  3. Starbuck66 (MI) - vacation mid-Sept.
  4. chas10e (ME)

That's because I can't copy/paste correctly.  Sorry.  One moment.

My plan is to ship the junk box out on Saturday September 2. 

Not too late to sign up, or let me know of any changes to the order. 

 

Thanks again, everyone.
