    Did @VeryPC_Colin_F bug me when he came down for a chat? Is that why you arrange customer visits? Or do you embed small listening devices in all the sweeties you keep sending, knowing full well we are all powerless to resist their sugary charms?
    I categorically deny this *note to self - spy on customers!*

    Actually, I just really like the movies (not read the books). I've watched them both a couple of times and think the latest one is particularly good. Gutted that Philip Seymour Hoffmann died so won't be in the next 2 though (obviously very sad in it's own right, but also bad news for fans of his movies - was one of the best actors working today).

    You should read the books. They really explain a lot more that the movies don't (like most book to movie transitions)

    Here's where I got it from if you don't win:

    LEGO Storage | IWOOT

    The prize is the Lego Small Boy Storage Head for 13.99: Lego Small Boy Storage Head | IWOOT

    The site is a bit of a treasure trove of geeky goodies and well worth a browse - I pick up loads of the competition prizes from here.

    I think that's a new thing - last batch wasn't yodel based, but his one is coming here via yodel - will let you know if there are any problems.

    Not been online since the video draw but by my reckoning I've got about 45 minutes to get my entry in for the bonus competition. Can't decide between 337 and 241 so I'm gonna toss a coin - heads is 337, tails is 241...

    heads it is... 337 please.

    Thanks for the last couple of entries - If I've added a thanks to your post then it means it is recorded.

    We do have a single winner. I will announce the result at 10am today.

    See you later,

    Okay, results time.

    The total number of valid entries that we ticketed and put in the box for our 10th birthday competition was...

    293

    And that means our winner is...

    @Driftingashore

    Well done to you! I will be in touch via PM to sort out the delivery of your Lego man heid shortly.

    If you are wondering how you did, I've collated all your guesses in order of accuracy below:



    Some great guesses, and some not so near the mark guesses. Thanks to everybody for taking part.
