    For me it was definitely Fort Max, Omega Supreme, and the Action Masters Optimus Prime. I remember a friend of mine had a Fort max and id get to play with it at his house, but i always wanted one for myself. i guess my parents didnt feel like spending all that money on a "toy". ive always been looking for one too, just never got around to finally getting one.

    It was Convoy. Note this was in day Transformers Victory period when they were showing old G1 episodes but the toys were hard as hell to find.

    I wanted a Rodimus Prime for the longest time. I finally bought a Takara reissue my senior year of College (when I got back into TFs). I think it was the first TF I bought since I was a kid. I was a happy man.

    First this question made me think, I'd like to say that this is why I think that I collect them now. When I was growing up my parents thought that most of the bots larger than a minibot like bumblebee, were too expensive. So basically I always wanted the bigger bots.
    When I got older and discovered RID I started collecting them. Then, I realized that I could now afford a bunch of the original G1's on EBay. Now, I got a lot (relatively anyways, many of the collections on here just blow me away.) from every series but my old G1's always make me the happiest.

    But I'd say the ones I always wanted the most as a kid were Optimus Prime and Metroplex.

    G1 Prime. Growing up in my family's toy store, I got most of what I wanted(I wasn't spoiled, but getting things at cost made it easier)...but I was into G.I. Joe more than anything back then. I still haven't picked up a G1 OP, due to other figures that are a priority in his price range. The rebate check coming in the mail should afford me MP SS and MP OP, followed[hopefully] closely by G1 OP.

    Pretty much any G1 character.
    I grew up watching reruns in 1990/1991. So all I could buy was the tail end of G1 (the euro exclusive stuff mostly) and G2. I used to pretend that Talon was Megatron, Hurricane was Optimus and G2 Windrazor was Starscream :p .
    I also got a few of those non-combinable Constructicons and I was always pissed they couldn't form Devastator.

    In short, the characters from the show where almost mythical. I remember other kids talking about Optimus Prime and how he was supposed to be a HUGE truck. I WANTED THAT!

    Ah well... I have 'em all now! :D

    I remember being in the toy store and having to choose between a M.A.S.K. Raven and Hot Rod: I chose poorly and still regret it to this day.

    I think I'd have to put ANY of the G1 gestalts/combiners at the top of my list.

    G1 Jetfire - he wasn't released in the UK but I saw him when on holiday to Jersey and begged my parents for him - they said no, later they got me a robotech model kit to stop me sulking but I never finished building that as it had bits break halfway through.

    Roadbuster. I did get one but as soon as I tried to transform him his arm snapped off. My parents took him back but for some reason I never got a replacement. I'm looking for a loose complete one now.

    I always wanted Prowl, but he wasn't a part of the G2 line.

    I always wanted the constructicons to form devastator.

    Funny thing about this thread is now the answer is "None" bc im a 29 year old Kid who is spending way to much money on ebay and in the Junkion exchange buying all the stuff i always wanted.

    Bumble Bee. But when G2 hit my mom got me a G2 BB, which I still have. So it all worked out.

    Hot Rod. I grew up outside of Seattle, but once as a kid on a road trip to Utah, I saw one in a Pay-N-Save/ Rite Aid kinda store out in the middle of nowhere we stopped in for food etc. Begged my Dad for it, but he wouldn't budge. I never saw another one again.

    Thought about grabbing a reissue recently, but robot mode looks so fugly to me now, I couldn't justify it. If they ever did a MP though I'd buy 2. :)

    I always wanted a G1 Devastator. Never got a single Constructicon, though.
