    Which figures haunt you people the most in terms of desire and unaccessability due to price or rarity? You know...the ones you MUST HAVE but just can't seem to get. Lets hear your top 5 most wanted hard to gets!

    1. Fortress Maximus
    2. Brave Maximus
    3. G1 Trypticon
    4. TFC Hercules
    5. Maketoys Giant

    The first 2 may never happen but I will own those last 3 sooner or later!!

    G1 Victory Saber... Never going to happen because I refuse to pay money for vintage G1 any more (I'm too picky about condition, although for these I may free a MISB specimen)
    BW TM Claw Jaw... The rarity factor. I haven't seen one for sale in a looooooong time.

    That's about it.

    G1 Fortress Maximus and BotCon 2007 Dreadwind are the only two figures I really want that are absolutely out of my price range. BW X-9 Jaguar is another one that's at the very upper end of my price range, and would normally be out of consideration, but which I might end up buying for a special occasion at some point.

    Right now it's Masterforce Grand Max, Goshooter and Minerva and Victory Dinoking. Both availability and price are factors there.

    Edit: BWII Tripledachus too
