    Today marks the day! 25 years of Transformers, and still going! What was everyone's first Transformer, and who is your favorite character?

    My First one was Gears, and I remember my first "big one" was Trailbreaker. Years later, Trailbreaker is in the trash in Maine somewhere, thanks to my younger brothers. Gears is still here with me.

    My favorites were always Prowl and Prime. My collections is missing very few of the different molds they have had from over the years.

    My first one was Megatron. My Mom didn't like him because he's a gun.

    I'm 32 btw...

    First TF was either Prowl or Bumblebee. I'm honestly not sure anymore. Favorite character is Marvel Comics Ratchet.

    I turn 35 on August 8th (Anniversary of the original Transformers movie).

    And, since it's relevant to the Anniversary, I'll remind folks of the blog-event I've been talking about over here.

    Got him at TRU in April of 1984 for $19.99.

    I am 20 years old and have always had Transformers. My mother likes to tell a story about sitting me down in the care of Mark (who is her first husband's son by his second wife and not my brother; we lived with them for a time before Mum got her own house) and was able to do all of the housework that needed doing as we were both mesmerised by the 1986 movie. Eventually, I had my own VHS tape of it and it wore out through repeated playing -- thank God for the advent of DVD! I think my first toy was Starscream. Most of my older ones were picked up by Mum and my grandparents at car boot sales in varying degrees of completeness, but I have many times many and love them all. In the past few years I've started buying them again (the DVDs of G1 and the movie are probably to blame) and I plan to keep on buying! So, happy twenty-fifth, Transformers! Here's to the next quarter-century!

    Ratchet was my first. I think the folks begrudgingly approved of the ambulance.
    In stark contrast to...

    Who they deemed too violent and expensive.

    The first TF I remember having was G1 (red variation) Bumblebee. I still have him, and he's in great shape.

    My favorite character is G1 Galvatron.

    I'm 33, grew up with TFs and been a fan since 1984.
