By definition a holy grail should be something that you've worked on or hunted for a lifetime... or at least a number of years... something that's always just out of reach but you keep pushing to achieve it, the ultimate item you may even give up all else to possess.
A holy grail is most definitely not something you just need to save up for and is readily available every other month if you look around a bit.
The R2 and Leia MOCs mentioned so far (IMO) are therefore not holy grails. They are however clearly most wanted items or most nostalgic items.
Thread seems a really good idea (reminds me of Carl's cut card R2), just maybe mis-titled? Given the idea is good, should the thread be called 'your most personal or nostalgic wanted item'. That way you won't get this thread confused with the Grail one.
Duly noted, I see your point there, I was along the right lines I just didn't think about the literal meaning of 'holy grail'
I like the nostalgia behind the Leia figure, I think maybe that's where my deep connection comes from with R2 now thinking about it, because it was one of the very first figures I ever remember playing with being about 4 years old.
