What are the giant reaper packs filled with?

It that some sort of packages they offer at the con?

 

I that they were the results of the shoppers using Aards melt credit to shop the boneyard for her.  The giant packs are filled with multiple (dozens, scores?) of miniatures.

 

 Aard literally brought a scale to Paint Day once or twice and weighed dozens of figures to see how much she could get per ounce of trade-in metal and then figured out which minis at the Citadel were the heaviest for their price (The Citadel still charges original prices for their older stock :bday: ) and then bought them solely for her shoppers to use to buy her stuff at the con. ::D:

I am awed by her efficiency and planning.

I bought a copy of Kabaka Kawana (the giant gorilla) for like 25 bucks - at around 8 ounces, it probably wound up getting me around 15-20 figures. Since my dreamlist involve ~100 figures at the time, it worked out great - and I grabbed 1-2 cheap lots on ebay that I wanted one figure but got 10, and a bunch of Descent minis when they were 3$ over black friday - they weigh like two ounces each.

 

I've already got 20oz for next year...

Wife and I stopped by a Lindt chocolate store yesterday, because it's Lindt chocolate and why would you not?

Turns out they have pick-and-mix truffle bags, and they were 100 for $30. So...

 There's a Linds store in the mall part of the local casino. It's a damn good thing I'm perennially dead broke or I'd weigh 500 pounds by now. Well, okay, I'd be dead by now, since eating that much chocolate would kill me, lol.

Did ya'll know they made Lindt sticks? I brought some to con for my roomies. SO delicious! Didn't even know they made it until I looked at the label. All I know when I was shopping for chocolate, people were grabbing them from the aisles cause they were on sale. I was like, alright, must be good. *grabs*

 

If you haven't tried any, go try! mmmm
