    After years of looking I Finally got a personal grail...... Beast Wars Neo Killer Punch!!

    I would always see him going for more than I was comfortable paying. This went on for a few years. Looking every now and again and he would be either way expensive or nonexistent.

    Thanks to a member.. I have him!!


    Thanks for listening to my bragging.

    Yeah, that is always sweet when you find a personal grail for a price you were willing to pay for it. There really is no better feeling then that.

    My two were:
    - Alpha Trion at $185
    - Takara MP TC at $105!

    I jumped on those in a heartbeat!

    Nice man, congrats I snagged me a Killerpunch last month as well. I'd been wanting that one for years!

    One of my grails as well. Hooray for Takara only reissuing 2/3 of the combiner! Grumble...

    Congrats dude! I have to ask, though; what's the appeal of the figure? I personally own the figure and the only reason I got it was because it came in a lot and it was really cheap because the owner (for some reason) didn't know what it was. I've tried to force myself to like this figure, but I just can't. I've come close to selling it several times, but I like the way it looks in alt mode next to BW Megatron.

    There is always things I am looking for. Elephanorpha is probably the most elusive thing I am looking for right now. Hard to find and it will cost your left nut when you do.

    $50 shipped. I thought that it was an extremely good deal.

    Honestly, I don't know. I bought Guiledart years ago when I was just starting in the import stuff. He was my first BWN figure. When I saw KP I just had to have it. I am also a sucker for good remolds.

    Congrats! I personally find him to be a really cool piece.

    @Wolfdawg - for me the beast mode is a big part of it, also the awesome killer blade weapon and the launching dinosaur head armcannon.

    He's very much a toy of the Beast Wars Neo line with all the beast mode parts hanging off the body though so if you don't care for the look you probably won't care for this specific toy though.

    Congratulations, that's awesome for you!

    And since everyone else is doing it, my holy grails are BW Neo Heinlad and, most importantly, MISB G1 Shockwave.

    I am stilll looking for a MIB Liokaiser to have all the G1 Combiners I want. Don't have Landcross or Dinoking but I don't like them one bit because one looks rediculous and the other is outrageously expensive for a small combining pos.
