View Full Version : OT- Worley surprise

08-26-2005, 03:47 AM
This is totally off topic;

I just received my G2 Package in the mail today, I got what I was expecting and then some. Inside the package in addition to the manual, was a kid's glider airplane. I don't know what to think of this, is it a joke, or has someone at Worley gone loopie? I was wondering if this is common practise for Worley has anyone else had similar experiences?

All you got was the glider? I got some comic books and Tootsie Rolls along with the glider.

Since the beginning of dawn (well...more like the start with "Gaffer") Worley has added little gimmicks with shipped products: I had candy, rubber puppets, etc :) It shows they have a lot of fun doing their job...

Hahaha, that's awesome! I'm going to have to order something from them just for the extras! ;)

NEVER place an order for multiple plugins from Worley at once; wait a or two day between purchases. That way you get more stuff. I've got two planes and a cool plastic lizard.

And if you report a REAL bug, you will get a T-Shirt :D However I don't think that goes for FPrime, but I certainly got one for G2 :)

I've had planes, fake dollar toilet paper - rubber toys, holographic stickers, sweets, tshirts and a signed greetings card!

I agree with krimpr - order multiples a few days apart.

They really are like NO OTHER SOFTWARE company.

Hot wheel race cars, Fake money, gliders, Pins that have springy arms.

I'm always wondering what I'll get next from Worley.

:D :thumbsup:

When I got my Polk Collection plugins a couple of years ago I received:

- A 1000000 dollar bill
- 2 plastic ninjas, 1 orange; 1 green
- A trivia card with answers that don't match the questions.
- A 1960's postcard of Yellowstone Nat'l Park.

I thought it was cool that Worley did that. Gotta love those tchotchkes. :thumbsup:

I got the glider, some army men, and some candy when I ordered Sasquatch(Oh yeah, I got the million dollar bill too- I should have tried redeeming that to them for all of their plug-ins). Unfortunately, you don't get anything for buying Fprime since there is nothing to mail to you.

Hey All,

I have a great collection of Worley gifts.
Cinema Tickets, comic books, little toys, some **** bank notes and a good bit more.
I use to think it was Steves way of getting rid of his rubbish (trash).
And rubbish is welcomed.

I tried to spell the word H E L L but it would not allow me (Newtek Big Brother / Big Nanny )

I got a plane and a few other things. :bday:

I still play with the car between renders. :o

It feels good to finally confess that.

I got some toy money and cars and stuff but as soon as I opened the box my kids scrambled and grabbed it all up.

Hey, I think you hit on something there! Maybe that's the idea, the toys keep the kids out of your hair while you play with your new plugs! ;D
