I used to get a lot of toys for christmass, but never anything I wanted. I asked Santa for the constructicons for like 5 years straight. I remember getting that rare masked Kane for Christmass and getting screamed at by my family because I just wanted to play with them and they were angrily setting up the tree.
Only stellar Christmass gifts I got was Roadrocket g2 transformer. I remember getting a ton of shit I didn't care about and then pulling my favorite toy out of the stocking, never even heard of that guy before, but he was just so cool he was my favorite for years.
And my best friend got my an Asmus Lady from DMC3 for christmas last time. I didn't ask him for anything, but he got me that, and I was stoked.
