    For my list, I'm counting a "grail" as something on my "want" list that is so expensive and/or rare that I'm not likely to ever acquire it:

    (1) G1 Fortress Maximus
    (2) BotCon 2007 Dreadwind
    (3) BW Metals X-9 Jaguar
    (4) Snowblind and Lens (Cryo-Saber Minicons)
    (5) BW TM Tarantulas, FoxKids black/grey repaint

    Before eBay, a grail was a grail. Now a days, you can get anything if your willing to pay for it. So some snob nose collector is just some stuck up prick. Please, if I want my son to not go to college or eat I can own any damn grail. But then that just makes you that annoying person no one liked with your cool bike, but you were still the douche.

    So just ignore anyone like that.

    money can be just as much a hindrance to getting a toy as a availability.

    Given the definition of 'difficult - impossible' to obtain:
    1) G1 1980's MISB Megatron AFA90 (for now I'm happy to settle for a G1 MIB Megatron AFA75Q courtesy of Jonnyshaft)
    2) Grand Maximus
    3) G1 1980's MISB Starscream (been trying to chase one of these down for the past 4-5 months but it keeps eluding me either by opportunity or by price)

    My grail is g1 fortress maximus. I remember seeing in the store as a kid I picked up the box and asked my to buy it for me (it was my birthday) they said it was too expensive so I got scorponok instead. But I have been dreaming of owning a Fortress Maximus ever since. One day he will be mine!
