This is a living document. There are no more than three pens in each category and only one Grail pen. I also wait at least two months to elapse after an acquisition before adding a new pen to the list. This is to give me a good chance to work the new pen into rotation and assess how the collection works as a whole.
For background on the genesis of the Wish List, see here.
Lamy LX [in da haus!] This anniversary limited edition resembles the Al-Star, but with a some subtle upgrades that floats my boat. What colour? They all look awesome! Karas Customs Ink It's quality, bro! A small shop machine-turned metal pen would make a great EDC.
Update: It's in da haus!
TWSBI Eco with Pendleton Brown's BLS modification (on order) I think this would be a good pen for use with ink with sparkles such as J. Herbin Stormy Grey or Emerald of Chivor.

Franklin-Christoph Model 45 XLV Antique Glass acrylic FP (on order) I love my Model 45 in IPO Classic Black and had to jump at the chance to get this pen in this unique finish. Franklin-Christoph Pocket 66 FP in Italian Ice (in shipment) Who could resist the allure of a glow-in-the-dark pen?

Lamy 2000 50th Anniversary Pen I actually have no clue how much this pen will be but I assume it will be special. In my review of the L2000, I already said I would get this pen no matter what.
Update: Well, I know what it will be and I'm not sure about it anymore...Plus it's retailing for US$590!
Sailor Pro Gear (Rhodium Trim Naginata Concord Nib) In the same Anderson Pens blog, they mention that a Sailor Maki-e is a must-have. The issue is that I want to get a Sailor with a special nib that is not available in the Maki-e pens. As well, all the Maki-e pens have gold furniture. So, I'm going for the special nib first.

Visconti Homo Sapien So many people love Visconti pens and the Homo Sapien looks so good.
