    American Bruticus and Abominus Gift Sets. Just recently proven not to exist, but still.

    Oddity wise: TF Power Cycle or Big Wheel. Whatever one prefers to call it.

    No American Bruticus set? Wow, never knew that. I wish I had just one of those sets, though. Superion, Menasor, etc.

    The Holy Grail, for me personally, would be a MISB Fortress Max. I have always wanted one, and never had him as a kid.

    I could have swore hearing before at the Alverez panel at Botcon he showed a pic of the Bruticus giftset?Also do you have any idea why Bruticus and Abominus Gift Sets were sold in Europe with I guess semi English packaging?

    The life sized Movie Bumblebee Prop. (Hey, I may not like the design, but even I have to admit that having that in one's collection would be the ultimate bragging right.)

    Realisticly, any Lucky Draw toy.

    Were I you, I'd crave that Hot Rod go-kart. It was probably eventually broken by the winner and tossed in a landfill, but there's a possibility that it's out there, intact.

    Me, I want that damn Hot Rod go-kart.

    The Unicron proto might be a candidate, but asking for Holy Grails will get you real figures that are out there.

    For real ones, there's things like the gold BW2 LioConvoy and Galvatron, both insanely low production numbers. And G2 Stunticons and Protectobots, the leader figures especially.

    Any of those would be cool.

    A sealed Fort Max would be kinda high on the list for me. Having the first TF off of the line, though, would be cool, provided you had some proof that it was the first.

    I'd have to agree with Runamuck here. I got my first 'holy grail' a couple years ago, which was a G1 Cyclonus. After getting him, a complete G1 Fort Max would be my holy grail.

    For me any number of the unreleased G2 figures are my personal TF "Grails" :)  They exist, and their existance continually taunts me :( 

    I also have a few non-TF grails...the big one, which I have dreamed of owning for the last 30 YEARS and with me as the current high bidder ends in just about 12 hours...Jumbo Machinder Combattra

    A vintage Twin Twist figure is pretty hard to come by.

    That Bruticus shown by Alvarez was a photoshop job conjured up to get a rise out of yours truly, even though it was OBVIOUSLY a fake. No idea why they were released in Italy and not here.

    Hot Rod Go Cart is a good one, I had forgotten about that.

    How about a Laserbeak Decoy sealed on American Card?

    i think a general consensus (sp?) here would be the 4 dino combinor casetts from japan,
    marlboor wheeljack, blue bluestreak, police sunstreaker, and in some cirlces, the other 2 gun robo brothers, browning and magnum. the white headmaster heads are up there, and the guard city teams.

    Took the words right out of my mouth.
    If there was one figure that I would truly consider the holy grail it would be the BW Neo Unicron proto.

    I would definately put them up there. But when I think holy grail (Stanley Cup reference for us Canadians) I think of something that is *almost* unattainable for most.
    Those cassettes do still manage pop up on ebay from time to time.

    Maybe a MIB set of the four....
