    As the title suggests, less boring than the monthly "who was your first TF?"

    I was always a puritan, until I got the MP Starscream Coronation set add-on, I can't even remember who produced it (help me out), after that it was probably repro labels who inspired me to tweak my toys which got me into customs, and then the FP City Commander changed everything for me.

    First one was City Commander. Wanted one ever since the first pics surfaced, but didn't get one until the second run.

    Oh, and I really dodged a bullet with him, seeing as he somehow ended up in AFRICA before getting to my house.

    FP Protector. I was very late to the game! Started with this because (1) Rodimus was the only Classics figure I had that also had a FP upgrade, and (2) was still in stock at stores so no after-market markup. Very cool, got me hooked!

    Very soon after that I went and bought a FP Superion appendage upgrade.

    The first third party accessory I picked up was the shoulder cannons for alternators smokescreen.

    Since then, I have added

    2x city commander ( still need another Magnus to display it in alt mode :(  )
    Protector
    Sidearm
    Explorer
    Munitioner
    Warbot defender

    And soon I'll have the 3 not-insecticons and Not-devastator.

    It's a good time to be a collector :D

    My first 3rd Party TF-related merchandise that I purchased was the MP Starscream Coronation Set, but the City Commander Set is the toy that captured my full attention.

    Since then, I'm a fan and fully support the 3rd Party Companies that produce toys and/or upgrades that Hasbro and Takara Tomy don't plan on making anytime soon or ever.

    I just ordered the Protector Armor + Sidearm on BBTS (good thing, because like a day after I bought Sidearm he was sold out). I never got the chance to get City Commander unfortunately. If they ever reissued it or something I'd still probably get it, even though I only have an Optimus Prime.

    City Commander. Wife bought it for me as a birthday gift. She had me picked it out. At that time I thought 80 bucks was too much to pay for it, but she said why not. So there it is. Since got most FP stuff sans a couple special variants and Warbot.

    You guys are all still 3rd party babies lol xtrollface

    My first set was the Unicron.com Beast Machines upgrade set (which is awesome in so many ways)
    C
    There wasn't much those days and I'm still disappointed that Unicron.com's diagnostic droid never made it to production *hint to any 3rd party group they still have the full parts design on their site*

    My true 3rd party love didn't start until CityCommander and the rest is history ...and present..and future.
