    Absolutely.

    Animated is my childhood, plain and simple. I love this stuff like you wouldn't believe. To all the hardcore G1 collectors wanting to complete their MPs, that's what this is like for me. If I was to be excessive, I would want EVERYTHING ANIMATED, Not just the main cast but the backgrounders like Dai Atlas, Skygarry, Wheeljack, Percepter, Grandus, others. But what I only really need is...

    A mini side display of Optimus, Prowl, and Bulkhead vs Megatron, Blitzwing, and Shockwave (All toys I had as a kid) But if not that then:

    Ratchet and Arcee, with an Omega Supreme behind them.

    I would sell my videogame and Transformers Collection for that, in a heartbeat.

    My grail of all grails was Grand Maximus. I acquired him in 2001 for $450, just a few months before I got married. I had a once in a lifetime opportunity to get him at a steal of a price and I knew there was no way I'd be able to get him after I got married.

    My current grail is a tie between a complete Metalhawk and Minerva's tiny Headmaster figure. I already have the body and white helmet. Unfortunately, all I have is a repro for the head.

    Botcon 2011 The Stunt Job. Which cause of this thread I now own.
    So now Botcon 2011 Animated G2 Sideswipe. That figure and Wingblade Prime would complete my Animated desires.

    He either means that or the 2011 custom class figure, which was Animated Minerva (and which is a grail of mine as well, now that I mention it).

    Wasn't a KO as it turns out, which really saddens me that I sat on the auctions for so long.

    Pretty much any modern Diaclone/Pre-TF repaint of a mold I own. So that Bee, Magna Convoy, ZapTrap, the like.

    Things that DON'T exist? I'd go with any modern Diaclone/Pre-TF repaint of molds I own that have NOT been done.

    Changed my mind, it's Classics Skywarp. I refuse to pay $60+ for a deluxe but I'm dead set on doing the Classics deluxe for my Seekers.

    Maybe an Earthrise Skywarp will FINALLY make it lose value.

    An original Beast Wars Cybershark, with both his fins still attached, and not the cost of a house.

    I just saw one on eBay for $45. That's not too bad for an older figure, and it's complete!

    I really regret not getting the last few Animated molds like Blackout and Jet Pack Bumblebee years ago. They’ve only gotten harder to find and higher in price. Having every figure from possibly my favorite iteration of the franchise would be a great accomplishment.

    Idk what I would consider the holy grail of what I currently own. I don’t think anything I have is too terribly hard or expensive to obtain. I’m fond of my Music Label Soundwave. He’s a sleek, cool figure and I like his alternate hand accessories. Functioning as an actual MP3 player is a cool novelty as well.

    Still a bit hard to bite for a deluxe.

    Right now? The Action Toys Supercar Robo (Turbo) that's likely never going to be released now that they've pissed away all interest in the line.

    Another I'd like to get is a G1 Wheeljack that isn't trashed. Even the KOs arrived in pretty rough condition last time I went that route.

    If aftermarket prices weren't so damn insane, I'd love to add all these to my collection.

    I like to keep my grail list nice and modest... somewhat realistically achievable. I only really want the Lucky Draw gold chromed MP-1 and a genuine Menasor head for my G2 Stunticons. Nothing too "out there" :)
