    looks pretty good to me. Any paperworks? Bio card?

    Might want to clarify/check the sticker condition for Kaen and Shouki. There's lots of stickers on these 2 and if they are peeling or mis-stickered, the Raiden just won't look as good.

    This is the closest thing I have to a 'holy grail'. Although I would consider a complete Fort Max more of a holy grail to me personally.

    And now that I think of it, I would dearly love to find all 4 Japanese Dino-Cassettes one day for something less than my life savings and first born. I do love those G1 cassettes.

    Nothing on the scale of the awesome stuff in the thread so far, I've got a few of the usual grails:

    My personal grails though are Megs items, and vintage Japanese books.

    Unused MC13 UNCLE Megs, box has some dings, but contents are perfect:

    Unused Megs Halloween costume, well, unused until last year's Auto Assembly where I wore the mask quite a bit! :D

    My favourite items are vintage Japanese books, TV Magazine specials:

    Kodansya Pocket Encyclopedias:

    I've got a few more I've not got pics of yet. I'd sell most of the toys before giving these up, absolutely love them.

    Not so much a grail, but a priceless item to me, my letter in the UK Marvel comic, signed by Gregg Berger! :D  (I'm the one suggesting the Dinobots combine, much to Grimlock's distaste!

    That Megatron costume is awesome!!! I think I have Optimus Prime and maybe Metroplex ones I would have to check. I have wondered about wearing it and catching fire.

    Hey Ninety, we have something in common!

    My letter was published in Dread Tidings! What was your free gift? Mine was the micromaster off road patrol. Ah the memories...

    Whoa, great to find someone here who appreciates these as well. I love the artbooks and TV magazines. The odd thing is that I have (almost) exact same ones as you, except the one with the Fort Max cover. Have been wondering what the highlights are for that book.


    Gotta ask! and mebbe ask for pics too. Good luck dude!
