As far as I'm concerned a true holy grail is whatever piece you want most, for whatever personal reasons you have for wanting it.


Like the other classic 'mega rare' grail gets thrown about a lot. This is or that is the holy grail of star wars collectors etc...

Bull!

who is anyone to tell me what the holy grail is for me a star wars collector!?

Anything piece can be a grail to anyone at any time. And good luck to them on their hunt for it!
martial arts, death, killing stuff......crazy fucking ninja.

Hope you don't mind me asking but what's your Grail?

My grail would be a recognisable screen used item from the original trilogy, something the average man in the street would recognise as being from Star Wars. Can't see myself ever affording to buy something like that, but I can dream!
Looking for Palitoy 12 back Jawa and Empire carded Dengar, Leia Hoth, and Snowtrooper. Damaged cards or reseals OK.
Also any non-toy vintage British items esp. store displays, advertising & promotional items, and cast & crew or prop items.

I'll go with that - a screen used at-at or star destroyer model would probably be my grail, or perhaps the probot.

In terms of toys... A full run from clay to production for one of the vintage figures.

Around 15-16 years ago I remember seeing a screen used lightsaber (I think it was Luke's) for sale on Ebay being sold by Lucas Films or one of the Lucas Companies together with COA and I think it went for $25,000. I wouldn't like to think what it would go for now! I guess items like that really are grail items as I have never seen one for sale since.
