    My personal holy grails are not figures that are extremely hard to find just ones i have not had money to go back and get like Railracer or JRX no preference, MP Prime any version and G1 Devastator. i am sure it will change after i get them but for now.

    A wonderfest BT Black Convoy/Nemesis Prime toy at an affordable price.

    I couldn't justify the price at the beginning and now they go for so $800 some times.

    I got mine this year. I've had Victorysabre before, but once was in the two separate boxes the second time was loose (had to sell them both for bills at various times). This year I traded my Botcon exclusives for the Victorysabre giftset. That is the centerpiece of my collection and I hope that no matter what else I get rid of I am able to keep that.

    My dream is a simple one. A completly and 100% mint in box G1 Shockwave.

    Sadly this will most likely take another 20 years to achieve as I have no collector's stores near me, I hate e-Bay, and Botcon cost to much to go to 90% of the time (and the 10% I can I don't have the time).

    Mine is quite simple and "easy", but it would be to finish the pre-movie G1 toys. The Encore reissue helped a lot, but at the same time slow down collecting G1 just in case it get reissued.

    To me getting everything in the 85 catalogue (minus deluxes Autobot and Decepticons) is my grail! Most noteworthy piece still missing is Jetfire and Shockwave (got the KO of the later but it's kinda lackluster and so can't count it in).

    G1 Hot Rod is the coolest car in Sci Fi, along with Michael Keaton's Batmobile.

    Ok, I gotta ask. How can a KO be considered a grail?
