    Since I was a little kid in the early 1980s I was introduced to the original figures. The only figures I had were Prowl like 2 times, my sister had Mirage. I also had some other ones like Landimine Pretender and I still have that one and I still have Divebomb the only Decepticon of the Predaking combiner.

    Back then I wanted Grimlock so bad

    Let's see If I can still remember them:

    Headmaster Siren
    Headmaster Nightbeat
    Powermaster Optimus Prime
    Powermaster Getaway
    Motorvator Flame
    Autobot Rescue Force Jet
    Autobot Rescue Force Buggy
    Sparkabot Guzzle
    Firecon Flamefeather
    Firecon Sparkstalker
    Throttlebot Freeway
    Throttlebot Searchlight
    Jumpstarter Topspin
    Hound
    Dinobot Grimlock
    Triggerbot Override
    Triplechanger Sandstorm
    Axelerator Skram
    Skyscorcher Afterburner
    Turbomaster Rotorstorm
    Aerialbot Silverbolt
    Aerialbot Slingshot
    Aerialbot Fireflight
    Protectobot Blades
    Protectobot Streetwise
    Mega Pretender Crossblades
    Pretender Grimlock
    Pretender Starscream
    Micromaster Race Car Patrol
    Micromaster Monster Truck Patrol
    Micromaster Battle Patrol
    Micromaster Sportscar Patrol
    Micromaster Air Patrol
    Micromaster Race Track Patrol
    Micromaster Metro Squad
    Micromaster Astro Squad
    Micromaster Overload
    Micromaster Flattop
    Micromaster Roughstuff
    Micromaster Anti-Aircraft Base with Blackout and Spaceshot
    Micromaster Countdown with Rocket Base
    Actionmaster Jazz
    Actionmaster Mainframe
    Actionmaster Jackpot
    Actionmaster Wheeljack
    Actionmaster Soundwave
    Actionmaster Powerflash
    Actionmaster Omega Spreem

    I had nearly only Autobots, but that's just because fucking stores did not have the Decepticons that I wanted. I wanted for example Overlord, Trypticon, Predaking, the real Starscream toy, Blitzwing and Astrotrain, Darkwing and Dreadwind, etc. But never saw them. Or Cyclonus or even Megatron or Galvatron. :(

    G2 Prime, G2 Grimlock, G2 Sludge, G2 Snarl, G2 Sideswipe, G2 Spacecase and a couple other G2 figures I can't remember. I have them all missing parts, but I keep my G2 Optimus and Grimlock in alt mode on my shelf. Most of which were from garage sales. I was born in 89' so I wasn't much of a G2er

    All my Beast Wars, which I still have and collect. About 60 of them are from my childhood

    I pretty much had every mass release from '84 through '87.

    I was fourteen when TFs started in '84, and I had already had some myclone/diaclone stuff.

    I've been trying to remember what Transformers I actually owned; sometimes its hard, cause so many kids I played with had them too that I have memories of getting to play with most Transformers from 1984-85 and some from 86.

    I'll try to stick to only ones I'm sure I actually had:
    84 Autobots: Optimus Prime, Wheeljack, Mirage, Sideswipe, Sunstreaker, Ratchet, Bumblebee, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee, Gears, Windcharger. Brawn, Huffer

    85 Autobots: Jetfire, Blaster, Roadbuster, Grimlock. Slag. Swoop, Topspin, Twin Twist, Beachcomber, Powerglide, Cosmos, Seaspray, Warpath

    86 Autobots: Perceptor, Ultra Magnus, Tailgate

    Random later toy: Chromedome

    84 Decepticons: Thundercracker, Soundwave, Buzzsaw, Laserbeak, Ravage, Rumble, Frenzy

    85 Decepticons: Shackwave, Ramjet, Hook, Bonecrusher, Long Haul, Scavenger, Scrapper, Mixmaster, Shrapnel, Kickback, Bombshell

    Of those toys, I still have Optimus Prime, Perceptor, Tailgate and Windcharger. I've replaced all of them except Roadbuster and Chromedome as an adult (OK, and I got a real Shockwave instead of Shackwave).
