    We all have some toys that we might consider "Holy Grails." Whether they are extremely rare or hard to find complete, I'm talking about the Transformers that you would absolutely love to have.

    It seems to me that Fort Max is considered one major "Holy Grail" of Transformers. What are some of yours?

    We got a lot of this kind of threads but I'm game.

    My grails are:

    1) MISB G1 Grimlock - I got MISB G1 Blitzwing already and getting this will complete 2 of the TF toys I loved the most as a kid.

    2) Black Zarak MIB - Even though I have a MIB Scorponok already this is one that I really want to get.

    3) Star Saber MIB - I normally don't collect Autobots but this is one Autobot that I'd love to have. Unfortunately it's very pricey to get the condition I want but hey it's the grails we are talking about right?

    4) Devastator boxset MISB or C10 - After getting the Predaking boxset reissue I want a few years ago the next Combiner I like to get boxset of is Devastator. Would be so nice to get the box in prestine condition and all the TF about C9 with perfect grade stickers.

    5) Deathsaurus or Deszaras - I already have Liokaiser so I'd love to get Lio's commander. Besides I have just about all other Decepticon/Destron/Predacon commander and he's the last one I still don't have.

    Keep them coming guys, the ones posted so far seem very cool. Sometimes I'm glad I'm not big into classic transformers (Although I'd really like to get my hands on Scorponok and Omega Supreme... and I'm kicking myself for not grabbing a reissue Predaking).

    As for my Holy Grails? I'd just like to get my hands on a complete set of show-characters from Beast Wars and Beast Machines . From there I hope to complete my Bookstyle reissues then begin working on some big G1 toys.

    ^^Many of those have been reissued for fairly cheap (compared to ebay original prices). Are you trying to acquire the real original?

    My grails...

    Fort Max

    Pepsi Prime

    Just kidding! Hohohoho.

    My real grails are:

    Overlord
    MOSC Actionmaster Charger
    Set of MISB Motorvators
    Set of MOSC/MISB Turbomasters / Predators
    Victory Leo
    G1 Scorponok
    RID Air Attack Optimus Primal

    Roughly in that order too. This year I've got Omega Supreme, Trypticon and Star Saber who were previously on that list.

    liokaiser
    overlord
    and deathzaras

    All I want is G1 Reflector...especially since I've got the rest of the 1984 bots and cons but he's not really a must have for me...
