Let’s see them grails!!! How many are gonna be old? How many will be from the more recent history? What makes it a grail for you?
Is it the was $300 retail price tag but now you can’t get it for less than $2500….
Or more of an iconic piece

My grail is always the Blackout False Friends by coarse. Just priced outta my reach, for now.
I filled my love of False Friends with the Reignited Monochrome edition, but it does sit in storage due to no room but at least I know I have it to enjoy when I find the space.September 18, 2019 at 9:41 pm #149012
Everything from Coarse is just so perfectly executed! I absolutely love the fur outfit on the False Friends piece. Even the fur on the fabric looks scaled down to match the size of the figure.September 18, 2019 at 9:57 pm #149026
One of my Grails would have to be any of the toys from the 3A Tomorrow Kings collection, but specifically the Seven Bones Kyoku. I’ve been a fan of Ashley Wood ever since I started reading the Spawn comics as a kid. His art is gritty and messy and went against everything I knew that a comic book “should” be, but it has this fantastic allure to it that was a perfect match for the antihero qualities of Spawn.
The Tomorrow Kings toys are a beautiful interpretation of Ashley’s concepts, building them at 1/6 scale with realistic clothing, and they have this future-apocalyptic-urban-samurai vibe that just looks badass. Plus with 30 points of articulation, you could literally make a stop motion movie with one of these characters. Looking at eBay, it’s not entirely out of reach for me, but it’s still a bit higher than my current budget. Also, now that 3A Toys is done, I expect the value of their work to increase over time.September 18, 2019 at 10:56 pm #149035
I don’t think I have ever fully appreciated the 3A stuff before, as it never fit in what what I was collecting but I can certainly look at it more with a closer aye and realise the allure of these figures. I’m worried if I look too closely that I may get drawn into this world…September 19, 2019 at 2:54 am #149077
3A figures are always awesome! My favorite were the squares, just cus it’s funSeptember 20, 2019 at 3:43 pm #149430
This was a one off from a show, but a girl can dream! Maybe some more tufted kangorumples will come into existence.September 22, 2019 at 2:39 am #149666
Custom Pumpkin Head Wooper Looper by Gary Ham, probably would sell half my collection off to obtain this one

I’ve got a few grails, but if I had to make a top 3 this would be it:
Treesons got me into collecting and the 10th Anniversary Special Edition is the only one I’m still missing. I’ve been searching for quite some time now with no luck so far, but I’m hoping to find it one day.
I also love Dust Bunnies by Amanda Louise Spayd and I love pink so the pink Belladonna is one of my grails.
And then there’s Chris Ryniak’s Unripe print. I managed to get the other four, but this one, still no luck!October 24, 2019 at 5:24 am #155652
@madeline – I might be able to help you out on that treeson grail 🙂October 24, 2019 at 10:58 pm #155706
ANd that’s a good start anyway….. there’s SO much more….November 3, 2019 at 5:16 pm #156803
Les viandardes -McBess x Kid robot
If anyone is willing to sell it…November 3, 2019 at 7:12 pm #156810
@Theresa: OMG! Just reading this now, let’s get in touch! I’ve been looking for this guy for such a long time, it would be amazing if I could finally add him to my collection.December 20, 2019 at 4:08 am #164689
I know SUPERPLASTIC is New to the DS Toy scene but getting EGC to sign this Piece was worth the wait. Personal Grail!!

Another on my growing list of grails is “The Passage” by Coarse. This piece is intriguing from every angle!
