I was reading through this article on the infamously large Hyve playset (from the Coleco Sectaurs line, known for being one of the largest 'bases' ever produced) http://x-entertainment.com/articles/0957/ and it got me thinking, what was one thing as a kid you craved so much it entered your dreams, something you dreamt every Christmas of ripping the wrapping off and discovering? I don't just mean the latest, coolest action figure, we're talking grails here. Things that, in all likelihood were totally overpriced and we would never see [thanks to sensible parents], but that left an indelible mark on our childhood. As a kid growing up in Germany, for myself this was essentially limited to what appeared in the Sears Wishbook catalogue, since I was (I guess?) fortunate not to have been exposed to endless hours of kickass toy commericals, and the Canex/Four Seasons stores on the military bases had very limited selection. For the most part, I just longed for great things that it turns out they never even produced (like a Rancor/Jabba's palace playset, or Cobra underwater base) or I just didn't know that they did. If you are really greedy you can list a couple things , but it is really about the stories and the unfullfilled longing.
