I got my Mighty Men & Monster Maker for Christmas in 1983, and it's all been downhill from there.
The Mighty Men & Monster Maker was a toy manufactured by Tomy in 1976 and given to me (or perhaps my older brother?) as a Christmas gift in like 1983 or 1984. Just look at it. Take it all in. This is possibly the greatest present ever given to a young boy as a Christmas present. You can just make all the freaking monsters you want! It's amazing!
