    Not Transformers although tangentially related, I’d love to get original Baron Karza and Rom: Spaceknight figures. If molds for either still exists and Hasbro were able to release new retro packaged rereleases like they’ve been doing with the G1 figures, I would be absolutely stoked. In the meantime, I have the Revolution Rom and I hold out hope for toys from the supposedly upcoming Micronauts cartoon for a new Karza.

    For actual Transformers figures, I don’t know if I have a grail. There are several G1 figures I wouldn’t mind getting if given the chance. The Takara Prime Voyager Breakdown comes to mind.

    Well mine doesn't really have a figure yet. But a Masterpiece level Transmetal Cheetor. Lucky me a third part/fourth party company is making one now.

    I arrived to the TFC late, so I didn't even know of these guys for the longest time. I found out about 3/4 of the way through the TFC's life and spent basically until its end getting these guys off the aftermarket. All opened, but complete with accessories, and in good condition! I'm just semi-afraid to mess with it too much, considering the age it's from, and the amount of clear plastic. Still, love the figure and love to have it in my collection!

    Before it was a Unicron. Now that 01 studio Cell is out, I might get him. But my holy grail now would be a masterpiece God Ginrai with accurate vehicle modes. Also, I would really like a masterpiece Galvatron.

    My ultimate grail has been achieved, that was Masterpiece Soundwave.

    The figure I dream about getting is Combiner Wars Quickslinger to complete my Superion properly. I actually had him orders from the Hasbro store, but the package was left on my porch and someone stole it! Hasbro was out of them by then, and was only able to refund the figure for me. No way I'm paying close to $100 bucks for a deluxe that's only a couple years old, so I likely won't ever get him.

    Somewhat lesser I want to finish my G1 Ark crew in a CHUG format I like. So I need:
    Earthrise Trailbreaker
    Earthrise Sunstreaker
    Earthrise Bumblebee

    then a Gears and a Huffer I like, nothing out that fits that bill so far, and my crew is done!

    Same here but add The Upcoming '86 Jazz (I never bought the POTP). We are supposed to be getting a Kingdom Huffer.

    Hmmm... partially through only skimming text, and partly through alcohol, I initially read that as "Klingon Huffer". Now I want a Klingon Huffer :(

    Well, that was easy. I wonder what other vague superpowers I have.
