    I was thinking about it, and I might go after a G1 Jetfire MIMB.
    If not that one maybe a Diaclone Prime or Ultra Magnus, but I bet it would be at the end of 2008 before that happens.

    it's called a house, and here's why it's a holy grail:

    how many collectors do you know with their collection in some sort of storage? I've got about 600 tfs and tons of assorted other toys in the homes of 3 different relatives. this year, we're planning on getting a place big enough to at least get all of my stuff together into one place, and hopefully have an extra room to have as a toy room.

    Possibly try to get a Brave Maximus again... else my only "grail" is to complete my G.1 84-87 collection.

    On Topic Edit: I'd love to get a Black Fire Convoy

    This one's alluding me as well. A three bedroom apartment is nice, but a house would be so much better. BTW, has everyone seen my sale thread? ;)

    I am in the market to buy a place this year as well. Hopefully I can swing a house, I don't want to go into an apartment.

    I suppose I'll finally get around to Metalhawk or Star Saber this year.

    the first 15 minuts of BotCon's show floor should be fun...

    Maybe a new car since my current one is 10 years old and is starting to have problems.

    Figure-wise, I'd like to get a G1 Mirage that's minty mint.

    To sell my investment home and finish my 84-88 collection if I am still collecting. If I stop then nothing.

    I received Fortress Maximus for a birthday gift last year and I bought Brave Maximus. So the "Holy Grail" I plan on getting this year is Grand Maximus. I'm going to start saving!

    no holy grails, but a couple'a milestones:
    - g1: get more scramble city guys, more cassettes, fill in gaps in 84-85
    - modern: stop putting off on amd unicron, sumbitch, finish off alts

    I've really slowed down on collecting in the last month. I've been trading mostly and I'm not getting a lot of stuff I die-hard need.

    I'd like a house, but maybe I'd settle for a new to me car. The house b/c I want a place to call my own (with my wife of course).

    But if I keep collecting and want a grail, it would probably be some IGA minibots or maybe the eHobby Minibots. Maybe a Bumblejumper.
