My holy grail to get is an uncut limited edition ultra rare sheet from Trunks saga. ( I about had a heart attack when I found out what they did.) They went bankrupt and threw hundreds of uncut sheets in one dumpster! They didn't even try eBay!
My owned holy grails are all over the place. MTG full albino test play card. Dbz limited edition sealed booster box collection. (2 left) This is what I would rank #1. Bruce Lee Enter the Hot Potato! Official movie poster. I have never seen a real one for sale. Double feature, bought from a closing drive in theater. I've seen thousands of Enter the Dragon, not one of these. Bad condition but in 10+ years haven't seen 1.
Wow you got some nice holy grails there. I have the SDCC Legacy Morpher but I might get the Dragon Dagger sometime when I have the extra money. Right now it's not really a must buy for me. I do however love the box design.

A lot of my collectibles are very important to me... So I narrowed it down to my top 5.
#5: The Toy Story Collection Buzz Lightyear. The Buzz Lightyear I always wanted as a child. Perfection in Toy Form! Just wish he had some GODDAMN BICEP SWIVELS.
#4: S.H.Figuarts SDCC 2011 Super Saiyan Goku. Just. Such a great figure. And one I wanted for quite a while. The paint on this guy (besides the orange in the hair) is pretty much as good as paint gets at this scale. Spot-on. Love it. Thank you for selling me this, Timone!
#3: Hot Toys DX-12 Batman. Easily the best Hot Toys figure I own. The rubber/mesh combo on the armour is beautiful. The cape is beautiful. The stand and accessories are beautiful. EVERYTHING IS BEAUTIFUL.
#2: The Amazing Spider-Man #692 Marcos Martin variants. Five insanely cool variant covers by one of my favourite comic book artists representing each of the decades of 50 years of Spider-Man! Spent a long time finding all these. I have to get them framed sometime.
#1: TRU Exclusive Masterpiece Optimus Prime (MP-10 mould). This was a hard decision to make... I love my Takara Tomy MP-10 to death, but the bright colours and painted eyes/lights on the Hasbro version make it the best Optimus Prime for me (despite the fact that I spent about 4x more on the Takara counterpart). This figure has everything you could ever want in a transformer. Truly, a masterpiece.
it may be weird but my favourite top 3 should be; battle suit with android 17 (i always wanted that figure since i was little but i never saw it online, so recently i won an auction of him for 6 dollars, its my fav figure by far! , second is lord slug, same story actually. and garlic jr. also the same story haha.
Some cool stuff, guys. Here are my music holy grails. I collect Ryan Adams vinyl.
Ryan Adams: Live After Deaf- Limited edition vinyl box set containing 15 LPs of Ryan Adams' European tour in 2011. The set was only available on the website of Adams' label, Paxam Records. It was announced to go on sale at noon at a certain day and it sold out within 15 minutes of going online. The ebay copies have gone. It's a very rare set. I was in a community college course when it struck noon and the records went on sale. I had my laptop out, pretending to take notes while the professor was lecturing. I managed to get one of the sets in that 15 minutes by logging on right when the clock struck 12. (left)
Orion- A Metal album by Ryan Adams. It is a sci fi heavy metal concept album that tells the story of two warring alien armies. It is completely different from any other work by Ryan Adams, who is known for Rock and Roll, Alternative country rock, and country. This was also a limited release vinyl LP. It came with posters. (right)

Of stuff that I already own, this would have to be my absolute favorite thing, and probably what I've spent the most money on with the exception of electronics or my car.
If I had the money, I'd have a whole collection of WWE championship belts.
As for DBZ stuff that I own, it's hard to say, but Jakks Omega Shenron, X-Plus Gigantic Vegeta, Ichiban Kuji Oozaru Vegeta, AB Fat Janemba, SBC Great Monkey Baby, and my SS4 Broly Resin statue are all tops.
Stuff I don't have that might be a holy grail? Idk, nothing in particular comes to mind, but most likely some badass resin statue of Majin Vegeta. I guess the Zeem Oozaru Vegeta with Arlia colors is one I'd love to get as well.
Also, the Ganondorf statue that was posted earlier. It's awesome, although I'd prefer an OoT version of Ganondorf, or just Ganon!

You have to go clothes shopping with it on and keep rambling on how you're the champ. Call ahead of time and ask if they sell pants that fit belts and talk about being the champ. If you do this and you shoul not mention the belt on the phone. Easy million views on YouTube. What's the use unless you use it.
