    I've had two, basically, not counting shit I wanted as a kid. Robot Heroes BW Inferno and BM Jetstorm. First one was BW Inferno. This guy, along with a few others, was at the tail end of the line back in 2009. I've always loved Beast Wars, and Inferno was always my favorite. I didn't think much of Robot Heroes when they first came out, but after awhile, around when the first movie came out, I bought one and fell in love with them. Imagine my exuberance when they announced BW ones in the Universe 2.0 line.

    Now, imagine my despair at learning that Inferno, Tigatron, and a few unrelated guys like a super cute Laserbeak and Star Saber would be cancelled in favor of RotF Robot Heroes. People always talk about RotF killing Animated, but it did the same thing here. It was over -- finished. Fortunately, this 2-pack and the Predaking one managed to make its way to a couple places like Germany and Indonesia I think. Not that it mattered for me. I was just a teenager and I couldn't exactly justify spending a bunch of money importing these. I finally grew up though and was lucky enough to find a fairly cheap Inferno (just him, no Tigatron) for like $25 like 3-4 years ago. Not bad! The occasional eBay listing easily goes for more than twice as much.

    Not as much backstory with the second guy, since I didn't care about Beast Machines until like this year, but one of the unlucky Robot Heroes who were totally cancelled was BM Jetstorm (I know you said no prototypes, but this falls under "unreleased stuff" too so whatever :p ). There's only like 3-4 that I know of in existence -- my unpainted one, a sealed one, and maybe one or two more. After much soul searching and strife about whether or not I was the kind of guy to spend almost $100 on a tiny ass unreleased toy like this, I decided that I was. The chance to own an unreleased toy of a character I liked from a toyline I liked was too cool, so I had to get him.


    Anyway, here they are in their irreverent, irrelevant glory:

    Since 1987, it was always Fort Max. Then the reissue came out and all was right.

    Then, it was Botcon 2006 Primal and Megatron. I figured Megatron was totally unobtainable but Primal was possible. The TFCC blowout got me Primal, finally.

    That just left 2006 Megatron. I recently managed to get him on eBay for $437.. LESS THAN HALF of what I was prepared to pay.

    So now,.. I don’t know anymore.

    Um, my holy grails were all of the TFCC and Botcon CW stuff, 2016 Airazor, and the 2008 SG box set. As of yesterday, I own all of them. I know you said no Lucky Draw figures but I wanted the green Unicron until the new one that looks better in my opinion was announced. Honestly, a lot of the TFs I'm interested in are more yeah it'd be cool for the right price kind of deal. Characters like Thunder Mayhem and Animated Minerva I was prepared to pay ANY price for them but guess what? Found Thunder Mayhem for a decent price on eBay and Animated Minerva I got during the TFCC close out sale for a bargain. I have more non-TF holy grails like the Konosuba Nendoroids than I do TF ones.

    I just remembered my only TF holy grail: Animated voyager Thundercracker.

    Grails I managed to get eventually...

    Full set of G2 Stormtroopers
    Kabaya Weirdwolf
    Kabaya Mindwipe
    Device Label Optimus Prime (last month)
    Oversized Korean Bruticus. Only took 8 months of discovering he existed back in 2005.

    Grails I still want...

    Fortress Maximus. G1, TR or both
    Metroplex Generations
    Third party Seacons
    Third party Scorpulator. Got him at TFNation 2 years ago but he broke a few months ago.
    Oversized CW Aerialbots
    Third party non transforming Scorponok
    Botcon Dreadwind
    Botcon Double Punch

    Apart from Scorpulator, the others are grails because I can never justify the price they go for.

    Your phrasing is throwing me off. So you're asking what Grails do we own?

    this is probably going to piss you off but I managed to snag every single BW robot heroes MISB for $70 shipped - that includes the "unreleased" Tigatron and Inferno.

    here's a nice grail pic from my collection!

    my holy grail WAS the Beast Machines Deluxe sized KO Nightscream, but I got him about 2 years ago. totally completed my Beast Machines collection. then it was Takara Beast Wars Metals Megatron, but I got him. Ironically, my grails have been beast era stuff, but beast era stuff isn't my favorite era.
