What were your "holy grail" acquisitions this year?

I found two of my holy grails, this year, without breaking the bank. The Ghostbusters watch is missing the side buttons, but I have already found replacements and is impossible to find for a reasonable price. Likewise, the Marty McFly Aiwa Walkman. Never thought I'd be able to own either, so I'm wondering if anyone else feels they got lucky this year.

This one has been on my list for a long time, they don't come around often. I felt it only fitting to show my Laser Pistols too, even though those are not this years acquisition, they are all made by Eric Nagy.

All of them have lights and sound effects. They come fully built and finished, absolutely immaculate work and very well built with solid construction. I have several Nagy's and they are all like that. Worth every penny.

Again, a build rather than an accquisition, but I am beyond thrilled with my Blade Runner PKD blaster, built from the kit(s) provided by Tip Top Workshop in partnership with Anders Pedersen who created the original STL files. It's mostly resin (with some metal parts) but beautifully accurate and with enough functionality (sprung triggers, a working cylinder and bolt action) to make it a really lovely replica. I believe there's an all-metal version in the works too... to look forward to for next year perhaps!

This year I acquired two limited edition EFX helmets. I regularly searched for these and have narrowly missed a couple opportunities at getting them in the past. I had almost given up hope of being able to get them.

Mine were a lot of inexpensive versions of things I didn’t need perfect replicas of.

The noble collection Jumanji board.
Galaxy’s Edge Obi Wan ep1 hilt.
EFX stormtrooper helmet.
And I don’t know if I can count this but the Haslab Proton pack. Not in hand but paid for. Most important prop purchase of my life.

I’ve got three, two bought and one made.

My newest, the Killerbody Mark. VII Iron Man helmet. Fully wearable, opening faceplate, removable face place, remote and touch controlled.

My $20 Kobold flash

And my handmade Jack Sparrow compass, a joint project between myself and my father. Everything I’ve ever wanted in a prop replica.

Marto Highlander Connor McLeod katana. Been wanting one for decades. Finally bought myself one. Notice I didn't mention which Highlander movie. That's because when it comes to that movie franchise, there can be only one. :p The sequels do not, I repeat, do NOT exist.

Absolutely beautiful! I've never watched anything with "Highlander" in the title except the original 2 cuts of the film.
