Have you ever been obsessed by an idea or a toy? Have you ever found a toy so captivating that you can't get it out of your mind? Have you ever loved a toy? There's a few toys out there I'm like that about and Jetfire is my biggest one. I've wanted one since I first saw them in the booklet that came with Soundwave. I managed to find one in a junk for sale bin in 1992 at the Jessamine Jamboree. I bought it for 10 dollars, but one wing was bent and wanted to get the other one that was with it as well, but didn't have all the money at the time. When I came back with the money it was sold. It didn't have any of the accessories and I've never seen them in person.

I've searched every flea market, every yard sale since then only to have missed out on them or not find them at all. The closest I came to one I could use to fix mine was about ten years ago with the same damage mine had minus the bent wing. One flea market I went to someone was selling their son's old toys he didn't care about anymore and I picked up a G1 Shockwave and Megatron for thirty, still in their boxes, but missing accessories. The woman said to me, "I'm surprise these are selling. I just sold a plane in the box. A white one about an hour ago. These are the last one he had. I just brought them in this morning." You can't imagine how much deep of a cut that was. That was about three years ago.

Just recently I've picked up a Jetfire that was missing his arms off of ebay. The guy that sold it to me was fantastic. I can't thank him enough for what he did, because he sold me a Jetfire that was in good enough shape to help fix mine and within my price range. Now all I have to do is get the accessories.

Trying to get the accessories makes me very nervous. I hate getting them off of Ebay, because it's so stinking expensive. $30 for the leg clips? Really? Oh well, I'll continue moving forward.


Nice idea for a post! Mine has to be G1 Optimus Prime. I remember my mum got him for me in about October and I had to wait until Christmas day to actually open him. She let me play with him in the box prior to Xmas a couple of times as I was so impatient to play with him. I have never finally come to own anything in my life since that day that has meant so much to me, very sad I know!

To the OP, I have a junker Jetfire with some accessories, who too lost his arms over time (a design flaw, I guess). I am very glad to send any parts to you for a nominal fee. I can't stand those guys who split up a perfectly good figure and try to hock various individual bits on Ebay.

The bits I have are

both large rocket booster type things
one arm clip

Then I have Jetfire himself in a sorry state, the plastic parts have yellowed. One arm is missing altogether, and the other one is broken. I guess just sending the red plastic accessories wouldn't cost that much (I am in the UK)

Let me know if you need them :BOT:

You did, and I have to admit, it is my favorite of the iterations of that figure.

Tidalwavex wrote:the 3rd party galvatron looks very G-1 styled in both modes & is rumored to be around 23cm/9 inches tall. so based on this info+pics. I know I want it & it's on my list of current holy grails I want. since most 3rd party TF toys take extremly long to get released for purchase,they can be considered holy grails.


The Holy Grail inwhich the term we use to describe our most sought after toy is borrowed, refers to the cup of Christ that was first written about in the 12th century and has been searched for over the past 2000 years. It just seems that a rough 3d print prototype with no hint at final quality that has only been made public in the last month would qualify as a "Holy Grail". I mean, to each his own, but I consider "Holy Grails" items of GREAT importance that have been sought after for LONG periods of time. That's just me.

mine would have to be masterpiece grimlock, which was acquired through a quest. I called multiple toys r useses and found the only one left in stock was in a store 60 minutes away. needless to say was not fazed. until I realized they couldnt hold more than 24 hours, and it was the worst blizzard of the year. We (I was 15 at the time and didnt have a permit) drove for 10 minutes with clear skies, then... TOTAL WHITEOUT... it was a lake effect blizzard from lake michigan. we couldnt turn back so we pushed on ahead. when we reached the mighty fort, the wind was so strong the snow blew sideways. when we got in, I saw the fearsome tyrant lizard king, I retrieved it and decided to check what else they had. turns out the had 2 other grimlocks, I asked about it and after i called to reserve grimlock they checked the back and discovered they had 2 more hiding in the back. and as luck would have it... the storm died down. but such is a day in the life... of sharkdude5...

The next holy grail I'm currently trying to save for is actually a nice MI(S)B G1 Jetfire.

Never had him as a kid but always wanted him, and as there's zero chance of him ever being reissued, I've got no choice but to save up for an original.

I recently obtained a MIB stickers unapplied Grand Maximus. I have been hunting for one in the right condition and the right price since 1996. It took me 15 years to find one and be in a position where I could sell enough doubles, extras and 3rd party products that I no longer wanted in order to afford him. He's mine now after a 15 year hunt ... and I can't wait to do a gallery of him to share with all of you.

Well a grail is very subjective... Especially since I live in Asia, where Takara exclusives are easy to find. However these same items may be considered rare in western parts of the world...

I don't collect G1... so nothing there...

Here's some canidates that might be the grail or grails in my collection:

Buster prime (regular release)
ROTF jetfire (I found it with ease, but seriously, they cost over $250 here now)
2010 Unircron
2010 Primus
2010 Predaking
Encore Devastator
Encore Omega Supreme
Encore Sky Lynx
DOTM Black jetwing
RTS Jazz (I went through alot of trouble finding this guy, when i finally found him, got him at 50% off regular price :KREMZEEK: )
Generations Warparth (Took alot of effort to find too...Then TRU flooded the market with warparths on clearence :-x )

Absolutely brilliant toy, especially for a female transformer (Hasbro often gets them wrong...*Cough*Strika*Cough*)...but damn, did she take a while to find.

I was overjoyed when she finally arrived through the post. So she, with Unicron as a close second, is my (very cute) holy grail.

I'm so happy with my collection I have mostly boxed know due to cuts etc... I have a Boxed Optimus prime and I might get the Jetwing DOTM Prime if it becomes cheaper at some point.

Aug 11 Birfday and luck of good timing and a couple large sales, I can knock Fort Max off my list. (I get a lousy Fort Max and Ryan gets a Grand Max lol consider me jealous)

Also good timing and Xmas to me, G1 Scorponok and Stunticons are off the list as well as minty fresh Encore Constructicons.(my Xmas was like 1986-87 all over)

I guess now Fire Guts Ginrai(have all other PM Prime variants including Nucleon Quest now),
Overlord I keep hankering for.....................Lot of $$$$ for one dude however and he is not Fort Max/Grand Max size.

Dumb grail that's hard to find at a good price?
Getaway, all I need to complete the full size Head/Targetmaster lines(not including the smaller later versions). Just need him and Powermaster, I have the gun as for some reason I cannot find my original anywhere(one of like 2 I am missing from when I was young)
Watching since episode 1 aired in 84
Reading since #4 released in 84

The day I got this guy I was all smiles, my roommate at the time didn't quite get it.
114.JPG

I had been looking for one and he seems to pop up on ebay every now and then, but I never wanted to drop the cash on it, but one day I decided to end the inner turmoil and go for it. Not sure what it is about the Armada Prime mold in the clear plastics, but I was mesmerized from the moment I saw it.

Other grails I have added to my collection are sealed G2 Go-Bots Optimus Prime and Megatron.
e-hobby Ghost and Black Starscreams, ok technically I bought them when originally released, but they were the first major Transformers purchase I had made when I started to collect Transformers, I've often thought about having them slabbed.
The Cybertron Sky Terror sword team was much harder for me to get at a reasonable price and took several years. I had had the Sunstorm piece for a while and always came up short on Thrust and Ramjet. Missing them on the bargain table at Dairycon I was a little sad for the rest of the day. One day I managed to find both of them still sealed up and bought them. It was like getting one step closer to finishing in impossible puzzle(if that makes any sense).

My number one that I own is Superlink Megazarak. Always eluding me on the secondary market and next to impossible at times to find even on ebay. I scored him when someone basically listed him poorly on the ol' ebay. Bringing him home he completes my Energon Scorponok display.
010.JPG


Number one grail for me to get will be a G1 Black Zarak. My brother tells me every year he 's gonna get me one for my Birthday or x-mas, only to raise my hopes so he can squash them and laugh at me when I don't get one. I must own this toy!!!

This year has been outstanding for me in terms of acquiring some of my grails. I bought myself a G1 Jetfire (nearly complete and in the box) for my birthday while my mother bought me a working G1 Shockwave to go along with it. For my wedding, my wife bought me a complete Deszaras and for Christmas she got me an incomplete Fortress Maximus (hopefully I can complete him soon).

Looking forward to 2012 I'd like to finish my G1 Monstructor. Damn GPS has destroyed Bristlebacks legs and I can't find a replacement for a reasonable price. That would finish off my collection of American gestalts.

My list of grails at this point includes Lio Kaiser, Raiden, Blue Bacchus, Grandus, and Overlord. Maybe with some luck 2012 can see one of them come off the list and onto my shelves.
Nobody calls Soundwave uncrasimatic


Recent acquisitions:

I got the G2 Stormtrooper set MOSC UK edition and one spainish version a few years ago. Tried to sell them on EBay and no one really wanted them.

I want Fortress maximus this year so I'm considering not buying any at all but him this will then also raise my cash reserves for next year.
