    Or am I going to have to throw this MBP right through the store window by Jan 8th?

    13" ntMBP base with LG 27UD68 attached. Simply woke MBP up from sleep and it does this.

    Using a j5Create Displayport-->USB-C

    This is a known issue. Apple has mentioned that you need to take this MBPro to an Apple store for replacement or you can send it in for repairs, but expect to be waiting 5-7 days. For Pakistan it may be longer.

    I have the same problem. Hoping the 10.12.2 software update will fix it.

    I don't know where OP is, but if you're experiencing a hardware problem, I'd imagine you'd have to take it to a country where Apple provides support. You should know that Apple doesn't provide support for your country before purchasing their products.

    haha I sense some sarcasm.

    I stream fox business while I work...so I usually dedicate the MBP to fullscreen news stream while I work on the external.

    Actually, this is not "known" at all - at least the solution isn''t. No one is sure if its software (wait for a fix) or truly a hardware issue.

    Interesting that the screen glitches appear only on the MacBook's display, and not on the LG...

    That's also true of the one flickering line I had on mine, and of the weird flickering on the bottom half of the screen people were reporting with FileVault.

    This is one of those things where the mere fact that such a thing can occur indicates something really weird going on.
