    I just want a complete G1 Prime. I'm hoping Encore Convoy doesn't have any funky remolding.

    Well, I'm mostly thinking about downsizing to be honest. There are a few things I'm interested in picking up, though... neither rare or super-duper expensive enough to be considered a grail to most, but as they'll be the last in my collection:

    VS-16 Lio Convoy vs. Galvatron (MISB)
    BWR-01 Convoy vs. Megatron (MISB)

    1/48 Stealth FAST packs (these do seem relatively hard to come by...)
    1/48 "DYRL" VF-1A Max
    1/48 "DYRL" VF-1A KAKIZAKI

    BT17, but he's half paid for! Next pay I will have him :) 

    X-9 Ravage for me as well, still considering getting him. THe 4 japanese dino cassettes one d ay when I am high or something and just say...F it and do it. Other then that. I pretty much have what I want. I would like a new G1 vintage prowl and jazz since the white plastic parts on mine are a touch faded but I can easily get those.

    I am not a vintage collector, so nothing too expensive in particular. I am after clear Car Robo brothers, just waiting for a cheaper set turns up.

    I am dying to get a hold of Big Convoy and Magmatron water squirts :lol  but no hope of finding them.

    I'd like to someday possibly get back into vintage collecting. I don't need too many more to completing a run of US G1/G2. I've never really been into Action Masters that much either (just the non-cartoon characters, and those aren't that hard to find). Targetmaster Scourge has always alluded me, though I've had my chances to pick him up. I've just not been willing to plunk down the excessive amount for him [I know he's a bit "rare" but I have a hard time trying to justify that much for him]. I also have had my chances to get TM Misfire as well. For whatever reason, Apeface is the only Headmaster I don't have (aside from the "Jrs"). Aside from that and some accessories here and there, the complete pieces I'd need aren't that expensive, but I just moved on once I got into Alts/BTs. There are a LOT of Japanese TFs I'd like to have, but I'm just not willing to shell out for 'em.

    I would really like to get a MP-3 and a MP-6, but I've been tiptoeing as to whether I should shell out $100 for each of them or not. Their size and the supposed plastic quality (which maybe will be fixed for Skywarp, but I doubt it) have continued to steer me away.
