    you know, the thing you've always wanted but greedy ebay bidders, extremely high prices, or total exclusion keeps you from buying it making it totally impossible?

        Here is MY "Holy Grail". Unopened, perfect box, pre-rub symbol version of Skywarp.




        Now, The "Grail" I would like, but never will get is: a misb MOTU Eternia Playset, a misb Grand Maximus, and one of the G1 prototype Unicrons.

            The original German pressing of Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention's Weasels Ripped My Flesh
            with the alternate cover depicting a silver painted baby doll caught in a giant rat trap. I've made myself a cd-r replica to tide me over till I find the real thing.

              I have a few:

              -1993 Ninja Force Snake Eyes either MOC or Loose with all the accessories.

              -Michael Jackson's Moonwalker for Sega Genesis.

              -Original Boba Fett figure from either the Empire, Return Of The Jedi, or Power Of The Force (1985) lines in MOC or Loose with all the accessories.

              -Korn Neidermeyer's Mind demo tape sent to radio stations from 1993. I've downloaded this album but like Funky Guy says its only to tie me over until I find the real thing.

              -A new copy of Final Fantasy VII for PSX. I was a dipshit and sold my greatest hits copy to a friend two years ago because I needed the money for Christmas. I've regretted it a little ever since. I still have a PSX memory card with both my save files on it...

                            My holy grail for the longest time was Toejam and Earl but last September I was able to find it at a retro shop in Cleveland called Big Fun. Now I have a few new holy grails:

                            -1993 Laser Rod Optimus Prime
                            -Michael Jackson's Moonwalker for Sega Genesis
                            -1993 Ninja Force Snake Eyes

                            If you're wondering about the toys from 1993, I not only want these particular toys because they're cool but rather I want them because I was so into Ninja Turtles that I feel like I missed out on some great toys in the 90's and now I want to find and buy the approximate versions of these toys that I would've had if I had been into them.

                              Thank me later.

                              Ever since I started becoming interested in Earthbound, it's always been the Mach Pizza Air Freshener.



                              *SIGH* At least I can dream

                                I'm assuming you "became interested in EarthBound" way after it came out, and you're now obsessing over every little aspect of it, right?

                                But I, too, would love a DeLorean.

                                  No, I'm not. I would just really like that Air Freshener.

                                        Nice edit.

                                        Now let's get back on topic, shall we? Like I said, as well as others, I'd really like a DeLorean. Unfortunately, they are pretty hard to find, and generally expensive. Also, I'm pretty sure they're not great cars by today's standards... but who cares? I actually don't think I've ever seen one in person.

                                          Right now, I'd have to say a Super Nintendo.(I sold mine a few years ago) I don't have much money these days and can't afford to buy one off of Ebay. About a year ago I saw one at a Habitat for Humanity Store with Mario Kart for $25, and now I'm kicking myself for not buying it back then when I had the money because I haven't seen one in a thrift store since that time. Oil well.
