When I was 7, like most kids my age, Christmas really didn’t mean anything more than a kickass day where everyone gave me toys! Yes I know my parents taught me that the real reason we had Christmas was to celebrate the birth of Jesus, but really, at 7, that basically translated to “I get more toys!”

So this year as always I was really excited to see what her gift was. What could she possibly get me that would TOP my Spider Man Robot? So once in hand it in hand, I ripped open her gift and pulled out these guys…

Unfortunately, Masters of the Universe weren’t as easy to come by, although I eventually got my main guys, He-Man, Skeletor etc….my Masters collection didn’t grow as fast as my Joes did. A couple years later though, I figured out a brilliant solution to fix my Masters of the Universe shortage. I managed to convince my friend who had a TON of Masters figures to “share” his collection with me. So everytime he would come over to my house, I would convince him to leave his stuff with me since we were “sharing” our toys. Pretty soon, I had almost his entire collection! Of course little did I know, that as he was leaving his He-Men figures with me, he was taking home a couple of G.I.Joes from under my nose…I guess he thought we were “sharing” those too!
