I wanted the X-Plus Sanda and Gaia vinyl figures (WAR OF THE GARGANTUAS) that were released last year -- but I couldn't afford the relatively hefty price at the time. But they were relisted recently as coming out again in February -- and now I could afford them -- I was thrilled! Until the listing was pulled, 'cause X-Plus has decided not to do a second run. Original sets now $600 or so on eBay. Phooey.

I'm hoping to get Character Options' "Doctor Who: The War Doctor" 5-inch figure this year. It comes with an interchangeable head of Paul McGann as the Eighth Doctor from the mini-episode "Night of the Doctor". A friend asked me for a list of things to pick from that he could send me, and it was #2 on my list (right after the "Doctor Who: Season 8" DVD collection). Unfortunately, they haven't made a Peter Capaldi/Twelfth Doctor figure in that scale, yet (just the 3.75", so far).

In Christmases past? I do remember in Christmas of '79, I wanted a 12" Darth Vader figure. My parents could only find Chewbacca, though. I know I did get Vader eventually...probably for my birthday.

As far as monster toys go, I can't remember not getting something I wanted, either for Christmas or my birthday. Like Anton said, there were often toys I "wanted", but they didn't exist! I remember the first time I ever saw "Godzilla vs. The Smog Monster", and saw the kid in that playing with his Godzilla toys and thinking, "Why aren't those available in the U.S.?" I later learned about certain toy stores in NYC's Chinatown that got imported toys, but they were way beyond my means back then!

They go for cheaper at shows, Terry.... I could keep an eye out for you if you wanted.
