    Well I just picked up one of my grails - a MIB Victory Leo. Got a MISB Sunstorm earlier last month to knock my first grail off.

    I'll post pics when it arrives but was wondering how I did in terms of price:

    $225 shipped for c7 box, c9 figure, decals unapplied but a few are peeling on the sticker sheet. Unfortunately missing the 3 missiles.

    Not bad at all, man. The missiles are a bit of a shame, but he displays perfectly well without them anyway. Do you have a Starsaber to go with him? Victory Saber is beyond impressive.

    Victory Leo rocks. I would like to see a modern Star Saber/Victory Leo combo.

    I've been watching one of my grails on Ebay, but haven't decided yet whether to bid or not, the price is pretty high.*sigh*

    The Robotmasters set is WORST than the original and has nothing modern to it. :)

    It's not that bad, Megatroptimus. Plus the eHobby version is amazing.

    I have RM Victory Saber. It's okay if you want a cheap version of the G1 toy that cuts corners, but what I'm really after is a masterpiece-like version or an updated version (similar concept but superior execution).

    No Star Saber as of yet. He's actually not high on my list.

    I've seen Victory Saber pics but wasn't overwhelmed. He kind of just becomes a platform to fly on right? Maybe I'm just not getting it.

    A Ghost Starscream's been something I've been pining for a while as well. May be my next pickup.

    i only have 1 grail left... LioKaiser.
    I've managed to capture everyting else on my grail list. It's always a good feeling. eh?

    congrats. I"d like to add a victory leo to my collection, but as he's not that big a deal, i'd be happy with the robot master version. perhaps at botcon...

    enjoy!

    I don't really have any real grails left to get, not that I really had that many to begin with. A sealed Diaclone and a sealed G1 Autobot car would be nice, though.
