While many important-item stories are about finding or recovering it, this trope is about when it's in {{The Protagonist}}s' hands either from the beginning or by the end of the first act. The rest of the story involves getting it from one place to another.

Compare LiveActionEscortMission, only that involves people and could just be a few scenes, while this trope could include anything that is one of the main points of the story. Despite the trope name, the item might or might not be a MacGuffin.

Not to be confused with MacguffinDeliveryService, where the villain uses the hero to obtain the item. Contrast KeepAway.
