Mine has to be a toss up between a Danny White cowboys uniform or an LJN toy wrestling ring complete with figurines from back in '86.

Really? I never knew they had them. Could you put him in the crane pose? Anyway I got some Air Jordans for Christmas one year, this was back when that was a big deal, and I shined those bastards every day for a year.

The snoopy sno cone machine that was rightfully mine but "Santa" put in my sister's pile.

DCR's Ewok village was up there.

My favorite gift that was actually given to me would have to be the see-through phone w/ neon colored innards.

3 Most Awesome Christmases:

1- The year I got both the jumbo Shogun Warrior with shooting fist ( from Santa) and Godzilla (grandma) was pretty huge...massive backyard beatdowns ensued and countless numbers of plastic green soldiers were KIA...in fact, I'm pretty sure a bunch of plastic cowboys and indians got drafted into battle....

2- Atari 2600

3-BIG TRAK, Motherfucker!

A Super Soaker! I was so stoked to get one until I got it and realized there really wasn't much I could do with it in december. Ah well, stupid child=stupid adult. Who would of thought that these days I'd have socks and underwear at the top of my list.

Some kinda film strip projector thing with Scooby Doo and Star Wars strips; from my uncle and I was really young, so I don't remember any more details now. Oh, and my now-insanely-coveted PXL2000; insanely coveted by film students, of course.

That big-blue-box The Beatles Collection too, more than twenty years ago now; on vinyl, of course.

For me it was the 8-bit Nintendo....I know it's kind of mundane.

Second favorite present was the GameGenie when it came out a few years later....it made all my old games entertaining again, for like an hour and it was good for finishing rentals in one weekend.

Apparently we bought the guinness world record holder hamster....the little fucker is still alive, even after being captured and carried around in the cat's mouth.

Pump BB Gun, stereo with turntable, dual-cassette deck & equalizer (saved me thousands of dollars in hardcore/punk records since I dubbed off of the punkers in my high school), and a ColecoVision console.

yeah, but their investments most likely increased exponentially if they actually held onto them.
