    TF: ARMADA Deluxe class Sideswipe.

    Armada Sideswipe? And you stayed a Transformers fan after that?

    Mine was G1 Optimus Prime.

    Universe Purple Silverbolt, i think. not counting some tiny G1s my cousin had. i think they were g1s, though i think they may have had minicon ports. or rather, holes. you know what I mean

    I had a bunch of G2 stuff when I was very young, but the first Transformer I actually remember picking out my self was Beast Wars Snapper.

    That's a great one to have as a first Transformer.... everything else will seem like an improvement from there!

    No idea what mine was, it was a looong time ago. I think it was probably either G1 Wheeljack, G1 Bumblebee or G1 Cliffjumper. But when I started collecting again as an adult, it was MP Prime followed a year or so later by Binaltech Grimlock. The Binaltechs were the line that sucked me back in in a big way.

    I think my first was an RID Spychanger 2-pack...although I may have gotten a Fox Kids Transmetal Waspinator before that...I wasn't really into TF's when I got that figure though, so I can't remember exactly when I got it. I know I bought it new, but I think it was heavily discounted.

    Ravage/Rumble (and my Brother got Brawn) ~ it might have been the other way around, but that's how i recall it :p 

    (and for the modern collecting it was Fire Convoy, Magnus, Black Convoy and the Car Bros a year or so before RiD was announced ~ yeah, i went big!)
