    From Experience, Action Figure Collecting is an (Extremely) Expensive hobby.
    Some toys often go for Hundreds even THOUSANDS of dollars and their parts alone often range in the Uncomfortable $50+ zone.

    Certainly, it comes as a shock when someone finds an expensive figure at a Garage sale for $5 or a Fort Max body at a Thrift store for $10 when he sells for normally WAAAAAAY more than that on Ebay.

    The point of this thread is this;
    What would be your Dream find?

    A TF find you could only DREAM of.

    G1 Fort Max or Trypticon.

    Or for some SERIOUS DREAMING I'll say a prototype G1 Unicron.

    Honestly, I think it'd be neat to randomly find parts I happen to be missing from my figures at a random garage sale or something, as while it wouldn't be as much of a financial find as that old lady who kept MIB G1 stuff couse her kid moved out & left it, it would be nice in terms of completing a puzzle of sorts, especially since I wouldn't even be hunting for it.

    Pretty much any MIB/MISB G1 for a below-market price. A real dream would be to find an MIB/MISB G1 collection at a good price. Fort Max, Trypticon, Jetfire, Shockwave, Optimus, Headmasters, all those guys. That would be a real dream, one that I hang on to and would love to experience first hand someday.

    Not very lofty...and because I'm relatively new to TF: The one and only 'Dream TF find' for me would have been to see RTS Grappel at retail.

    Once the Battle in Space pack hit the shelves and I saw the included brochure with Grappel in it I wanted it. Never saw it in hundreds of miles searching. What a friggin' let down.
