    Well we all have things we see but just can't have for some reason. So I'm curious, what are osme things you really really want but have about a .001% chance of getting.

    Of course everyone knows what I want. It's was displayed at the old Marvel Restaraunt.

    Any of the internships I applied for this summer... :( 

    No, seriously...I've always wanted the Federation Models Galaxy-to-Nebula-class conversion kit, but the thing's like $150. I can't justify spending that much on a resin kit.

    If I was going to go one step further, there was a super-scale resin kit of a Klingon Bird of Prey that had like a 4 FOOT wingspan...it was around $500. I'd REALLY like to get one of those and have it hanging above the main hallway of my house.

    ...but $500 for some resin plastic? Uh uh. Ain't happenin'.

    "The unreleased / only given to special people" G2 Lasercycles Jazz and Soundwave MOSC. :(  Yeah, all the laser cycles look the same but I want those two badly. I think I have about zero luck ever getting them. :( 

    Oh, and that Iron Man display is awesome. I saw it once at the Marvel Mania Restaurant located at Universal Studios Hollywood. It's pretty sweet.

    The items that I would love to get, but I doubt I can get my hands on is the Megatron Microphone Gun and Transformers Big Wheel. Both I heard are super rare and hard to come across mint.

    MISB G1 Starscream. They pop up on ebay, but I can't justify the prices they go for. Perhaps someday after I have caught up on the more afordable items for my collection.

    MISB G1 Grimlock. I got MISB G1 Blitzwing before the reissue and it's like one of my childhood dreams coming true. Grimlock and Blitzwing are two of the toys I wanted the most as a kid. Of course scoring misb of Sludge and Slag would be awesome too. I got G2 Grimlock MOC but it's not the same.

    Another toy I'd love to get is MIB Black Zarak but the days when I'd spend $200+ on a toy is long gone.

    All the Insecticons I'm missing, which at this point is mainly just the MISB stuff and the harder to find items like Diaclone giftset (one on e-bay and it's astronomically-priced) and the pre-Has-Tak releases of the Deluxe Insecticons (got me a MISB Beet-Gugal AKA Chop Shop, but I need the rest). Oh yeah, and lots of money.

    A Batman Begins Batmobile. As in, a drivable one. I'm sure if you paid WB enough dough, they'd sell one to you. You could then fix it up to road legal, and voila!

    Most expensive loose toy ever.

    For me its the following:

    i) all the g1 combiners such as Defensor, Menasor...seems like I have to get the vintages especially since rumors of the old molds have been damaged.

    And vintages can be pretty expensive...

    ii) I would also like to get every single mecha in the Soul of Chogokin line, which IMO is the best robot line in the market so far...

    I was going to be a smartass and post a pic of Jessica Alba or something, but screw it. :p 

    Probably any of these Lucky Draws- Black Fire Convoy, black/red Energon Megatron, gold or silver E-Rodimus, black or gold G1 Rodimus. The E-Rodimus's are a possibility though since they're cheaper... but they others are just waaaaay too expensive.

    i would say...carded vintage SW figures.

    as expensive as some guys like black zarak and powered masters are, i can totally justify overpaying for them, eventually.

    carded vintage SW figures meanwhile... even at bargain prices, i second guess. but i do consider them desirable. its just that, its a lot to pay for something only to look at it.

    with TFs, the toys are more tactile. you feel like picking them up, at least once, which for me justify the high prices.

    MIB Grand Maximus...even on Yahoo! Japan Auctions those go for way more than I could ever justify spending / convincing the wife. Guess I'll have to settle for looking at all of the pics on-line...

    I don't know why, but I really want one of these. There were, like, a dozen made.

    I don't even like pokemon.
