    G1 Starscream MISB C9 - for a reasonable price. That for me tops my list.

    Most of the grails that I have on my list are certainly obtainable, but the fun in it for me comes from finding them at a reasonable price. Sure if you throw enough money at it, anyone can get any Transformer, but to obtain a grail at a good price to me is almost as fun as actually having the figure in my hands.

    I don't ask for much, just a complete Fort Max in good condition [Hey TT! Are you taking notes on how many Fort Max mentions?]

    there aren't that many G-1 holy grails toy I need due to them being brick formers.

    I don't care about low volume repaints or package variants. i'm just happy to own the mass released high volume toy mold.

    I'd much rather have a holy grail" idea". like a MP galvatron,MP Sixshot that look like there 1986 G-1 cartoon/toy versions.

    Ah yes, Bumblejumper, how you elude me... I saw one at BotCon, the guy wanted $80 for it. The arm was mangled and melted back on, it couldn't transform. Someone bought it.

    Always wanted a MIB Road Caeser, but after saving up I got the Fort Max instead. Oh well let's start saving again...:D

    There's only 2 more on my "grail" list - A complete & in good nick Fort Max and Scorponok. I wouldn't classify them as being "grail" items as they are IMO realistically obtainable. The rest of the items that used to be on my "grail" list have all been ticked-off (& my wallet hates me for it... :lol ).

    Like many others I say Fort Max,but I already have the main body,but I wanna find the
    pieces to complete him,so I guess my grail would be his ramps,radar dish,leg cannons,arm
    cannons,doors,Cerebros,Spike,Grommet,and anything else I missed.

    Next would probably be Universe Legends 2.0 Wheelie,Warpath,Cosmos,and Hot Rod,I
    have been looking for those for a long time and still ain't find any cheap,they are all
    $10 or $15 apiece,and I'm not paying that kind of money for them.

    I have no G1s, and surprisingly enough, almost no interest in them. Maybe a Bruticus would be cool.
    But I would really like a good collection of WST figures.

    I actually have most of the grails I want right now, except for a MIB G1 Shockwave (which I won't be buying for a while). Maybe one day if I have a lot of money to blow and know there's one on the market, I'll go for a Lucky Draw (probably Blue Big Convoy...)

    I kinda have everything I want already.
    Only "high prized" item that comes to mind is Nucleon Quest Super Convoy. Don't know if I really want it though.

    Just gonna go with MP Rodimus Convoy for my next grail.


    EDIT: Totally forgot about G1 Stalker. He's my definite holy grail!

    My "grail" is not really one at all but for me it would be Beast Wars Scorponok, it is the ONLY figure I have been kicking myself in the ass for not getting when I had the chance as a kid, I just had to get Polar Claw instead with the bat and it's faulty spring of death. I'm a few years off from being a G1 kid so I have almost no interest in those figures (no offense), my G2 Prime with the missing hands is good enough

    Others include:

    BW Rattrap
    BW Rhinox
    BW Tarantulas
    BW Waspinator

    G1 Grapple
    G1 Rumble*
    TFA Arcee
    TFA Cybertronian Ratchet
    TFTM Ironhide
    Universe Ironhide**
    Universe Prowl

    They're not particularly hard to find on eBay admittedly, but the USA -> UK shipping is insane. $60 for a loose figure? Pah. :|

    * Going by FIRRIB logic, all Frenzys I see are automatically redubbed Rumble by my brain.
    ** Shut up I don't care that he sucks. I like him. :[
