I saw a topic like this on a Transformers forum I frequent, and I think it might be a good thing to have here as discussion. The question is what are your grail, dream, and regret sets and/or parts. Here's what each thing means. Holy Grail: A set that exists, and that you want to add to your collection, but have not been able to acquire due to rarity or other reasons. Or, a set you desired for a long time, but have since acquired. For example, mint in box 8880, a particular variant of a set, etc. Dream set/part: This is a thing that does not exist, but you would very much want. Example: a particular replica set, a machine/vehicle that has not been made in Technic, parts that have not been produced in a particular color,etc. Regret: Can be any regret, be it buying a set, not buying a set, selling it, passing up on it in stores, anything. I'll start with mine. Holy Grail: At this stage in my life, I am more interested in parts rather than sets, although I have found that for certain parts, it is better to buy a used set then buy the parts individually. For the longest time, I wanted to get one of the RC sets that include the buggy motors, and still kicked myself for not buying one when they were on shelves. But, I persevered, and finally got the sets. One of my big things was not following up on somebody local who had them for sale, and that bugged me for so long. Then, it was some particular pneumatics parts, but I got lucky there to. Dream Set/Part: I could fill literal pages with this stuff, as there is so much I want that does not exist. As a short answer, I'd really like gray or black pneumatic cylinders, and an 8x8 Mercedes Zetros with a crane, and full suspension. There is certainly more, but this is what I'm putting in for now. Oh, and how about a 9 axle crane set with x outriggers, at 42009 scale? Regret: I have a few. Not getting the RC sets when new. Not following up on somebody local who had some. Not getting 8275. Not getting 8455, even though I did get 8454. I'm sure there are others, these are just the ones I remember most. I haven't ever sold any Technic set, or regretted buying one. So, those are mine. What are yours?
The tale I am about to tell you is, at last, the final chapter. The final chapter of a much, much longer story... That began over three thousand years ago. There is a lonely, remote island in the North. Three thousand years ago, the mages who resided there were slowly dying. The harsh wintry climate allowed neither cattle or steed to survive. Each day for the mages was a constant struggle against the cruel snow. The land was barren and infertile, and desolate of life. Thus, slowly but surely, the mages died one by one in the frigid cold. The greatest evokers among the mages sought to end the misery that plagued their people. Utilizing their greatest treasure, the Lifespark, they banded together and conducted a ritual atop the highest mountaintop. By the ritual's end, they had created a new type of lifeform: a new species was born. The Proggs. Little did they know that their own creation would eventually doom them to an even worse fate then before. The Proggs, when their population grew large enough, rallied against their masters. Led by four freedom fighters, The Mythrogg, Eve, Primii, and Prometheus, their human slave masters being driven into absolute extinction. This human genocide would be reignited once again in Luosh, controlled by the vile Prometheus - now calling himself The Regret. The Proggs were thwarted in this attempt. One by one, the three leaders of the Proggs were vanquished at the hands of the Heroes of Heroica. The Proggs were stopped on that day. But The Regret lived on. Five heroes assemble in the atrium of Heroica Hall. The party stares out of the Hall's many windows as the morning sun lazily rises, absentmindedly sorting their gear for the hardships that would befall them. Silently, each one recalled the wrongdoings of their foes, remembering the injustice he had inflicted upon their organization - or, in one man's case, recalling the atrocities of the "ally" that would be accompanying them. Those five heroes were: Lord Lawrence Boomingham (Zepher) Level 30 Paladin *Immune to Darkness-, Fire-elemental; Immune to Fragile, Sleep, Weakened, and Blindness* *Pierces SP From Front Row* *SP Ignored From Back Row* Power: 49 (Level 29 + WP: 14 + Power Bonus: 5) Power Bonus: 5 Defense: 10 (SP: 7 + SP: 3) Health: 53/53 (Base HP: 10 + Level bonus: 39 + Class bonus: 11 + Permanent bonus: 3) Ether: 29/29 (Base Ether: 0 + Level/Class bonus: 29) Gold: 176 Equipment: Scupperer (WP: 14; Darkness-, Fire-elemental; inflicts Bleeding (-5) and Poisoned (-10); great sword) Round Metal Shield (SP: 7), Tome of Affluence (+10 Gold if equipped for the entirety of a battle; Immune to Fragile, Sleep, Weakened, and Blindness; Immune to Darkness-, Fire-elemental; accessory), Counterstrike Gloves, Mopag Helm (SP: 3; headwear), Chains of the Pongcanis Chief (Hero Pierces SP if fighting from Front, Enemies ignore SP if hero fights from the back row, cannot be removed in battle) *Pseudo's Blessing (+4 Power; not an artifact)* Inventory: Frozen Saber (WP: 9; Light-, Ice-elemental; inflicts Stunned; great sword), Lullaby Wand (WP:6, Inflicts Sleeping Effect) • Hood of Belthazar Bluehood (Power +4; Ether -6; headwear) • Garnet, Sapphire, Amethyst • Scroll of Recklessness (Encouraged and Fragile; costs 5 Ether; 50/50 chance), Scroll of Blindness, Scroll of Weakening, Scroll of Fragility, Scroll of Sealing, Bolero Of Fire (Cause Fire damage equal to the minstrel's level to all enemies per round for as long as the song is sung.
