The big guy is on his way! What’s on your Christmas wish list this year?
This week the League wants to know what’s on my Christmas list? Well, I have to say that I don’t have much in mind. Typically around this time of year I have lots of wants. I normally could rattle off a dozen different things that I want. But this year? Not so much.
Sure there are things I could enjoy, but there’s almost nothing out there that I really, really want. This holiday season has been very stressful for me. Between a variety of charities, buying for some family members and doing donation drives like Infinite Toys For Tots, I’ve been far more into giving than receiving this year. Trust me, I’m shocked too. Normally I’m pretty selfish, ya know?
I feel pretty lucky this time of year, as I have darn near everything I could want. I suspect there’s also a big part of me that has some apathy towards everything that’s currently in the toy aisles. I get more excited about older lines than I do current stuff.Honestly, I’m sure I’ll be happy with whatever I get.
I am hopeful I might get some Adventure Team stuff from my Secret Santa and beyond that, I’ve pretty much left things to chance. My GF is planning some sort of big surprise for me, but I haven’t the foggiest clue what it could be. Likewise, I don’t expect anyone else in my family to get me anything “cool”. This year will probably be the least toy filled year I’ve had in quite some time. I think that says a lot about where my toy collecting habits are these days.
But I have to put something on this wish list, don’t I? I won’t do anything lame like “world peace” or whatever, because that’s no fun. This is supposed to be a WISH list. Something extravagant and rare… Hmm…
How about Executive Replicas proposed Commando Cody 1/6 scale figure? They pitched this several years ago but it never did come out. I remember emailing Executive Replicas once about it and they said it was still planned. I could go for a Commando Cody in 8 inch Mego scale too.
If you’re REALLY Santa, you can make this happen, right? How about it Claus? I’ll even take the parts to make a custom myself. I’m not too hard to please.
If you need some stocking stuffers, how about some of Tomy’s old Bumble Boxing sets? I’d like a few different ones. So I can have a whole tournament of boxers.
I loved these things as a kid. Apparently they re-released them a few years back. I never saw any in stores though. I would have bought one.
Same thing with the Strolling Bowling set from Tomy. These would be great to find under the Christmas tree. Actually I’d really like to have these for Christmas Eve. That’s when a lot of my family gets together. I can just imagine a big Bumble Boxing tournament now…
