    No Sunstorm from that mold has been made yet. You'd be better off trying to dye a Ramjet than try to sharpie up one of the other versions of the mold.

    I only found one CW Skylynx in the wild, and that was at a walmart I don't frequent very often. Bought him even though I had ordered him online as well with the Onslaught case pack. Worked out because I wanted to have second CW Bruticus anyway.
    My holy grail would to have a mint in box G1 Star Saber.

    Lucky Draw MP-1 Convoy. I'd be thrilled just to be in the presence of one, let alone to own one. Pure Unobtainium.

    More realistically its MP-4S Sleep Mode Convoy and the Takara History Collection PVC Spike figure with Prime hand that plugs into MP-1's arm. I need them both, my Masterpiece collection won't be complete without them.

    For a Grail that doesn't exist yet, it would be a Hasbro Masterpiece Skywarp in his '84 catalogue colours. But I'll happily accept one in his Mexican production colours.

    Not a Transformer, but a Micronauts toy that was only released in Italy and Canada.

    Lobstros

    Literally the last piece I need to complete my Micronauts collection. Heck, I don't even need the full vehicle, just his 2 front claws and 2 antennae. (Picked up a really nice but incomplete piece a couple years ago)

    You know, pretty much ANY Diaclone/Microchange repaint was on my list when I collected G1. When I downsized to CHUG mostly, I almost wet myself when I saw that million publishing was considering that figure as their exclusive when they had the vote that landed us Go Shooter. Go Shooter of all things. It's even worse now that Titans Return makes it possible that they may indeed get a Headmaster Go Shooter in the future, but what looked to be the one chance to get a CHUG release of one of my G1/Diaclone grails fell through hard. I'm still depressed about it. Hell, I would have wound up buying two.

    I might be naive or stupid, but I'm still holding out hope that we'll get G2 Defensor before Hasbro wraps up the current continuity. Those guys know how rare a set that is, along with how many of us want to own it to complete the G2 combiner set. I really think it'll happen.

    Mine would be Generations Metroplex. I missed out on that bot and now they are priced too crazy high. Oh well, can't have everything. :)

    Pretty much. Was hoping for one in CHUG back in the days. Now that we have a MP Sunstreaker, there's gotta be a police repaint in it's future.

    G1 Liokaiser has been on my short list for a long long time.

    I've been keeping my eye out on that Botcon Megs for a while. Thankfully the prices are coming back down on it.

    Right there with you and for my part I have only myself to blame, had a ton of opportunities to buy him but kept waiting for him to get juuuuuust a little cheaper.

    Stung once so I bought Fort max full price, in fact paid extra for the SDCC version but he is my souvenir of my first time getting into SDCC. Now need to decide what my souvenir for getting in legally will be.

    Trypticon I'm waffling on I have the Platinum G1 ├ędition and aside from full tilt being so much better I don't know if he's a $150 upgrade better.

    Anyway, back to the subject in hand my holy Grail was G1 Fort Max and I am happy with the reissue I got from BBTS. Managed to snag that one at the lowest it ever was. Don't fully remember how much but I'm sure it was sub $200.

    Just kinda picked up my latest holy Grail, a MP style Jetfire (VF-1S) but now I need to save again to get someone to paint him up for me!

    the grail of many a micro collector....I do know one microfan who got lobstros years ago, got him in hand after paying several $100 and was like 'wow, is that it', he took a step back after that. It is still a fun piece even if very simple.

    I keep waiting to score a Fortress Maximus at a TJ Maxx or Ross (no Ollie's around here). I'm pretty sure my chances have diminished but that's ok as Metroplex was always the one I really wanted. I passed on FM at Christmas with the $75 pricetag, so I must not want him that bad. ;-) Now, if Trypticon gets down to $75 at Christmas I'll definitely pick one up.

    Whenever I tell someone about the crown jewel of my collection it's My MP Grimlock autographed by Gregg Berger, but I'd have to say my holy Grail would definitely be a official MP Omaga Supreme.

    My holy grail used to be G1 Soundwave and all the cassettes, and all the G1 Dinobots. Now that I have those, I guess my last real grail is a mint Scorponok or Dinoking set.
