    For me, a Holy Grail is something really difficult to attain and that it would take a minor miracle for me to find/afford one. Given that, mine is:

    G2 ATB Megatron and Starscream, which was supposedly only ever released in test markets in Ohio. Here's an ebay listing if anyone wants to get if for me lol.

    Generation 2 Megatron ATB Unreleased / prototype | eBay

    I don't know why, but a Megatron that looks nothing like Megatron at all really appeals to me.

    Second is probably this weird, rare, Dairy Queen Optimus:

    Worst Optimus

    Man that G2 Megatron looks really familiar. I know there's the purple Dreadwing version but I swear I've seen that Megatron at KB Toys years ago. Maybe it's just my mind playing tricks on me.

    Maybe you did! There was a Japanese Beast Wars release ("BB") that was very similar, but that wouldn't have been at Kaybee.

    I don't think that Megatron made it's way to CA so it's probably me being nuts. I just have a vivid memory of it because I remember it looking cool and wondering why Starscream was so small. I'm probably merging two or three memories together.

    What's the attraction of misb or moc or anything of that sort? I see tech specs and empty boxes on sale for more than a dollar, which just baffles me.

    Battle Blade Bumblebee - very hard to find for a good price, but I might pull the trigger on it soon. The price seems to have gone down

    The Prime First Edition line. I have Bumblebee, but the others are really expensive everywhere I look. Prime was my favorite Transformers cartoon, and I would love to have the best versions of the characters in my house.

    Generations Metroplex. I can't find him anywhere for under $200, and Earthrise has put me on a big base Transformer kick.

    Grandus and Dug Base. They're flabby and simple, but their base/train station modes intrigue me.

    My grail piece was Botcon Scorponok. I was lucky enough to pick one up at TFCon Chicago 2018. Haven't really settled on a new one after that.

    Like everyone on the planet, filling out the exclusives in my Combiner Wars collection

    Beyond that, maybe some of the Botcon Action Masters

    The odd G1 thing I never got? Used to have a complete Thunderwing, I believe it's long lost now though, wouldn't mind replacing it
    A full Bludgeon too, would be cool (aim high I always say)

    The new Seacons for sure, though I didn't pre-order any so we'll see how their availability continues to be

    If you mean the HftD version, I have an opened one that I was attempting to sell in a lot on eBay. If you're in the US, I could probably help.

    I don't know if I would necessarily call it a grail piece, but I have always wanted a Tigatron. I never got him as a kid and I really liked the character and his color scheme. I am tempted by the Masterpiece but I might just wait and see if they do a Beast Wars line in the next few years. Masterpiece is always a few years ahead of the main line and 2021 is the 25th anniversary of Beast Wars, so who knows.
