When I was younger, nothing was more exciting than the yearly countdown to my birthday. My mom even made me a mini calendar one time on which I could check off each day. Of course I couldn’t wait to tear into the wrapping paper to see what treasures I got.
Would it be Castle Grayskull, the Ecto-1, a BMX bike or perhaps that cool Lego pirate ship?

Great haul
My sixth birthday was as awesome as can be. I was a huge fan of Masters of the Universe and the infamous Snake Men had just been introduced.
These reptilian bad boys were a dream come true with all of their cool features.
I mean, how can you not like a guy with snakes coming out of his eye sockets or someone that sheds his human skin to reveal a couple of hissing snakes?
You tell me, because to this day I still can’t find a reason why I wouldn’t like these guys…
Anyway, I really wanted Sssqueeze.
Mostly because of his badass looks: A venom-like green body, partly covered in a purple shirt. Add some killer boots to the mix and you have one of the most fashionable bad guys that ever tried to defeat He-Man.
So, what did I get for my birthday?
Take a good look at this old picture and find out!
