Well, my best gift this year was the look on my children's faces when they opened their presents.
My second gift (which was partly from myself, and partly from Gil and Linda) was a part custom made and modified knife from my dear friends Linda and Gil Hibben. The highly polished clip (top part of the knife), and ebony handle (exactly as was sent to Stallone's Prop Master for the movie) are really eye catching. This has to be my best present ever, which I will cherish for the rest of my life. Apart from my family, this will be one of the most beautiful things I will see in my home on a daily basis.
Heres a gift I received from Linda and Gil Hibben a few months back. The Rambo 3 paperback, has David Morrell's signature which he did back in 1988, Gil also kindly signed it for me too, which was a very nice surprise. This is another treasured gift, which I will always admire.
I just wish that I hadn't lost Jimmy Liles autograph, which he did for me before he passed on, as it would have finished off my collection.

Back when i was a kid all i had were a few of the figures the survival knife, the mini recurve bow books video tapes and the soundtrack to Part II Like I said, not much!
Nowadays..... well, I've been on a bit of a RAMBO-Tear of late (particularly over the summer and I have a lot to show for it)
It started out with the Two First Blood figures done by NECA in 2013 (or was it '12?) Then, as NECA was preparing the RAMBO First Blood Part II figure I found a HARDENED Rambo Figure made by N2Toys as well as the original Coleco RAMBO Force of Freedom Figure giving me a proper "Evolution" NECA had also come out with a Nintendo-ized RAMBO in Bright Orange to go with their various Classic Video Game figures but I held off on that. This past year when I heard NECA was doing a Coleco inspired RAMBO that came with a Bow and AK-47 I went into overdrive Collecting the Original Coleco team I Had RAMBO Then Came COLONEL TRAUTMAN Then TURBO (with an International file-card I really want to get a plain English only Card) Then KAT and WHITE DRAGON By the time White Dragon Arrived I had gotten NECA's Coleco-inspired RAMBO Finally, after that one arrived I decide to "Come Full-Circle" and finish off my Coleco Team with Coleco's FIREPOWER RAMBO (Eventually I may get around towards picking up the S.A.V.A.G.E. Forces of General Warhawk_
It was only after getting all of them that I finally elected to pick up the NECA Nintendo Game-inspired RAMBO
and finally here's the whole lot with the Evolution and the force of Freedom
I Want... What They Want... And Every other Guy that came over here...and spilt his guts...and gave everything he had!!! Once! for our country to love us as much as we love it! That's what I want.... or if we can't have that! a movie franchise, an animated series, an action figure line...and maybe a set of bubblegum cards!
