I guess it'd be annoying, but if I was able to land all the others I'd probably be okay with it. Based upon the current market, I know there's some that even if I could obtain, I wouldn't want to pay crazy amounts for.

Which grail are you trying to get?

What are you looking for? The way I see it is that the harder it is to find, the more you'll appreciate it when you finally get it.

Well I'm looking for the sdcc flocked sulley and the thing is he's 480 pieces not like some Freddie's that are 96 but what drives me real insane is that he was that last time he was up on eBay I missed him cause I had bad reception.

But is fun to search and try to get it.. part of collecting is that you have that mega grail that is almost impossible or hard to get it...

That is a great piece! I know how you feel, I've been looking for a metallic Notorious Big and I was saving for it, but its kept going up. At this point, I may never get one. But never give up!

I only really have one, and I could have gotten it, but thought whatever price it was at the time was too much. Now, if only I could get it for that price!. I guess I need to decide how badly I want it.

There's this grail from NYCC and I have been dying trying to have it. Unfortunately, its price is equivalent to a used car so I don't know if I will ever get it. And yes, it's bothering me everyday :(.

That is point of a grail, it's ultra hard to find. I have been searching for few pieces for almost 5 years now and haven't seen them for sale anywhere. It does drive me a little nuts, but hey I am very happy to have found many other hard to come by pieces through the process.

Having only one remaining grail is a good thing. If it was something like 10 then it might feel overwhelming and impossible. For me, my top 2 wants are in my sig and they're not difficult to find it's just a matter of dropping some cash. I'm getting to a point where I will purge a good chunk of my collection to get my grails just to have that feeling of completion. After that is done I have Prototype wants to keep me busy. Lol

To tell the truth I would love to just have one left to get. I've been trying to get some of the grails I've wanted for awhile with no luck and I've been collecting for a while. I just can't get my hands on Big Boy, GITD White Ranger, Superman Shirt Sloth, Flocked Gizmo, Chase Beetlejuice, Blue Shirt Stan Lee Freddy, Pink Hair Freddy, Ace Ventura Freddy and now Blue Fat Man and X-Wing Freddy. There is no way I can afford ebay price for them and the stuff that I have that people want to trade for them I worked so hard to get I can't simply give them up. I wish you luck in finding the last grail you need.

I know how this feels. I have every Flash figure, but am not a big Proto person. My grail is a Flash proto (not from the TV show). With all of the Flash figures that have been released, I'm surprised that it is this difficult to get one. I guess a grail is a grail.

My Pop Rides collection was complete except for one- blue Batmobile. At 1/200 you'd think they'd come up now and then but I didn't see one anywhere for like 6 months. But if there's one thing I've learned in my decades of collecting stuff, it's that if you're patient then what you're looking for WILL eventually pop up. A Funatic eventually helped me out on that one and I've maintained a complete set ever since (which as it turns out, never ends lol ).

I also collect plastic model kits and the holy grails for those are store displays. They are kind of mini dioramas that would be placed on hobby store counters to show people what the built model looks like. I narrowly missed a particular one on eBay. I saved a search for it and patiently checked the search results every day. Eventually one came up and for a surprisingly low price and it is now in my collection. Guess how long it took me? About 5 years. 5 years of checking saved searches every day. Sometimes it takes a lot of patience to chase down those super rare pieces :-)

I've been searching for SDCC Thing as well. What kills me is I had several chances to buy a few months ago and put it off. Now he has doubled in price :(

I think as collectors and go an extent... addicts, as soon as we finally get the one grail we needed, we find a new challenge. It's an neverending cycle. Just most of the grails you have now and maybe one day that last piece will come into play =). And then after that, you will find a new grail lol lol

I have the problem of spending money on non grails and not saving it for the grails I want. I watched the Big Daddy proto on Gemini for months, saw it drop in price from $300 to $200 and still didn't save up for it like I should have. Then one day it was gone and I looked through my PayPal history and I could have easily bought it months before it was gone. Sometimes instant gratification seems more important than saving up for something #-o
