    Best X-Mas present you got as a kid?

    Well X-Mas as a kid and getting Nintendo's Super Techmo as a present was pretty sweet. Atleast 2-3 years of my life are treaded on that game. What's your guy's best present?

    a 1,900 piece Lego battleship. Took me all of Christmas Day to get that beast put together.

    Mine would have to be either when I got the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Sewer Playset (the TMNT's base) or my Super Nintendo. Both times I was sooooo freakin' excited and literally spent the following year (in the case of the Nintendo, next 4 years) playing with them!


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Castle Greyskull from He-man when I was 5, a WWF ring at 7, and nintendo at age 9. Those are the best I can think of.

    There have been a lot of worsts, but can't really pinpoint just one.

    BB gun and Honda dirt bike in back to back years. We were pretty much inseperable from those bikes until getting a driver's license.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I would say my He-Man castle or my Redskins Starter coat. The Starter coats were huge and everybody had them. Loved it even though I am not a Redskins fan.
