    Which Transformer do you seek the most?
    Is it a rarity from Beast Wars, or Japanese exclusive Victory, or does it go all the way back to Generation One? Was it a mass release, or store exclusive, or a convention exclusive? Which TF would you give your right arm just to find on Ebay?

    G1 Grimlock MISB. As a kid I love Grimlock and Blitzwing and now that I got MISB Blitzwing in 3 forms (G1, Takara reissue, ehobby Overcharge) it's the last true grail that I have.

    I set my sights low. I'm a casual collector, and have no intention to be spending hundreds of dollars on a single item. I'm not huge on most of the G1 stuff, so most of those "grails" don't do much for me. I wouldn't mind having complete sets of the Scramble City combiners, but not having them doesn't really phase me, either.

    As such, any elusive figure that I've aimed for hasn't really been all that hard to find. Most of them I've picked up used, but in mint or near-mint condition. RiD Railracer used to be one, and up until last week, so did BM Hammerstrike. Both are in my collection now, and not for exhorbitant amounts of cash, either.

    I don't buy past TFs to much because I have most of what I want. There are a fe wI need like Hound and Ratchet but don't really look for them. But every once in a while I get a hankering to get this one.

    Nothing right now in particular, got a GF Soundblaster on the way so that’s covered.

    There are a couple of older Japanese TF's that are on my dream of owning but probably wont for a long time list. However I will be defiantly looking for a G1 Japanese Masterforce Overlord sometime this year, but probably not till later in the year when I got the money to hunt down a nice minty boxed one :)

    Well, the top three things on my want list right now are from the Japanese Beast Wars series. C-5 Rattrap, D-2 Scorponok, and C-5 Terrorsaur... trying to find them MISB. I've found one place i can possibly get Rattrap from... just a bit more expensive than I hope to pay.

    Other ones I'm looking for are also from J. BW.

    Liokaiser
    Raiden
    Starsaber
    Victory Leo
    Overlord
    The four Japanese Cassettes

    I'm not really actively seeking them since I know all of them would cost both arms, both legs, and more then likely both testicles but I'd eventually love to have them.

    I'd also really like to get Roadbuster and Whirl, I just need to find a good deal. And I want to get all the parts to complete my Fort max and Scorponok..I got decent deals on both of them, but they're missing a few accessores, especially Scorponok.

    Right now, G1 MIB SMokescreen. It just keeps slipping through my fingers. Even the one auction I won, and paid for... I didn't get !! I've also had a tough time trying to put together a set of MOC Constructicons.

    The only thing i ever HAD to have was a set of Brainmasters.

    Thankfully, there's only four of them. So, that was done ages ago.

    (and of course Victory Leo...)

    So, there's nothing in the 'Vintage' section that i'm looking for really.

    What about the reissue of Hound?

    As for me, the Jap Tapes and the G2 Lazer Rods.

    G1 Prime, in decent shape. It's still the best toy made of that character.

    I'm still looking for a nice MI(S)B G1 Flywheels. Also wouldn't mind finding another boxed JPN Flywheels since mine is a little rougher than I care for.
