    I'd have to say my #1 choice would be G1 Shockwave, MISB.
    I wish I could have gotten one back in the day when they were only $11 each...now you can't get even get a damaged/incomplete loose Shockwave for under $100. :banghead:

    I fer dang sure don't remember Shockwave ever selling for $11 back then (unless it went on clearance for that price). Even the G1 seeker jets were originally priced around $10. Seems like Shockwave, Megs, and Prime all originally sold for close to $20.

    Because if it had have been $11, I most certainly would have bought one. The reason my brother and I settled on buying that knock-off brown Shockwave we found at a Sears Outlet store was because it was like $6.

    It's down to 3 of what originally was 5, but Star Saber & Lio Kaiser are out of the way so the remaining 3 are:

    1) Overlord (Japanese version b/c I'm picky)

    2) Deszaras

    3) Dinoking giftset

    All MIB, of course

    My current Grail would be the Lucky Draw Masterpiece Optimus Prime. Anyone who wants to start a donation drive to buy one for me, go right ahead. I wouldn't mind. Really.
