    I know Christmas is coming, and this has been a rough few years for many of us. Some still blessed enough to have an income, and others not so much. So my question is, if your like my family, we are each getting one thing for Christmas.So what TF would you like if you able to get one for Christmas?

    How is this different from any other Transformers Christmas wish list?
    I want my shit sold so I can give my family a better Christmas. Want to get my Dad something really cool, my brothers, causins, nephews, aunt/uncle.

    we have wrote off christmas this year...just getting things for my niece and nephew( my parents grandchildren) and the adults are not getting gifts (birthday or christmas) for each other this year due to the economy etc,

    I managed to barely scrape the $$$ together to get takara's 2010 unicron for myself for my birthday several months ago....But he is enough transformer wise for new cool stuff this year anyway...

    the economy hasn't affected me, one good thing about being in the military. I'll get my wife the usual shit and probalby a kindle. My son is 14 months old so he'll get a train set and some books and my 13yo will probably get some clothes. As for me, I have predaking preordered and I'll get myself a nook color.

    No one in my family will buy me transformers. Last year, funny story, my girlfriend and I were at target and I saw the Leo Prime repaint. I picked it up and mumbled something about not having him and set him back down. My gf swore up and down that she won't buy me toys for several reasons. When Christmas came around, she got me that Leo Prime much to my suprise.

    The levy has started to leak I guess. I snuck an animated activator soundwave and device label ravage on my Christmas list this year, so who knows. Working for he state I haven't been hit too hard with the economy, but I wouldn't want any of my family to go nuts on transformers for me.

    If I had to pick one, I'd say HFTD Lugnut, or that SD Infinity Macross Frontier VF-25F Messiah Valkyrie ALTO.

    I'd try to get a Galaxy Force Leader Prime. Trying to get a decent representation of Prime for my C.H.R.U.G. collection.

    it all depends on what the budget is per gift. it also depends on what particular TF toy/character interest you.

    Just one?

    Masterpiece Megatron. And even he's hard to come by online without paying a ludicrous amount of cash.
