This Christmas, I decided to do a follow-up of this pic I did back in 2012:
In 1987, for Christmas, the Takamotos got their very first CD player, a Technics SL-P111. The previous year, they got an RCA SelectaVision VLT-270, the Takamotos' very first VHS VCR.
As for their own gifts, Henry got the Real Ghostbusters Fire House Headquarters playset, the Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future Powerjet XT-7, the LEGOLAND Space System Cosmic Fleet Voyager, the LEGO TECHNIC 8055 Universal Building Set with Battery Motor, the Flexiblocks Flexiwheels Construction Set, the Flexiblocks Special TV Bonus Package as seen on TV, the Vehicle Voltron set, two Wheeled Warriors toys - Armed Force and Sawboss, two NES games - "Mega Man" and "Castlevania," three VHS tapes - "Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors: Deadly Reunion and Other Tales," "The Real Ghostbusters: Play Them Ragtime Boos," and "Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers: Chained and Other Tales," and his very first four CD's "Def Leppard: Pyromania," "Def Leppard: Hysteria," "Bon Jovi: 7800° Fahrenheit," and "Bon Jovi: Slippery When Wet."
His mom, Alex, got a new peacoat, a new scarf, new earmuffs, new mittens, three VHS tapes - "Girls Just Want to Have Fun: The Movie, "Midnight Madness," and "The Cross and the SwitchBlade," and her first four CD's "The Moody Blues: The Other Side of Life," "Queen: A Night at the Opera," "Kansas: The Point of Know Return," and Styx: Kilroy Was Here."
Henry is Playing Mega Man on the NES, while Alex is playing one of her CD's on the CD player.
This is the first time in three or four years since I did paperless digital art and I do apologize for any inaccuracies.
I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!

My name is Dean Rumsey. I was born May 9, 1985 in San Jose, California, and moved to Stewardson, Illinois, on July 28, 1987. Despite being autistic since age 4, I have a love of art and music. I am the winner of the Outstanding Artist Award in the 2000 junior high graduation and the Matt Debolt Memorial Award in the 2004 high school graduation at Stewardson-Strasburg CUSD #5A.
I became an anime artist in 2000 and in 2002, started developing a Hamtaro fan-series which became a fan-film in 2004. Danger Rodent (later Vector V) was officially the first idea of the Henry Takamoto Series since January 17, 2006, months before the Hamtaro fan-film project was cancelled. I created The Life of Henry Takamoto and Tri-Beamer in 2007, Vector X in 2009, and Henry's Children in 2010. I still continue with Henry Takamoto as of today.
