    Just like the title says.

    Mine Gen 1 Jetfire. Still have it, but it is kind of yellowed, and some pieces are missing, but overall still one of my faves.

    Christmas 1985. Powerglide, followed by Ramjet minutes later. I'm only missing Ramjet's landing gear. Oh there were some good dogfights that winter vacation.

    Stupid landing gear, I sure I'm not the only one who put it in the cockpit for safe keeping though...

    Same here! Beat up but in surprisingly good shape considering he's a 20 year old toy now.

    Mine was G1 Prowl. His hood broke, then his rear window broke, and before long I got a second one. Eventually his hood broke off too. Grr.

    I think it was either Warpath, or Topspin.

    No idea. But it might have been Starscream or Astrotrain. My first when I got back into collecting a few years was Nosecone, to finally complete Computron.

    My first TF too! And I still have all the pieces too. Just wish I'd had the foresight to keep the box.

    As for the yellowing--how have you had him displayed over the years? Mine almost looks as good as it did 20 years ago--no yellowing at all. But I've never had it in direct sunlight either, and it stayed packed in a box for about 8 years too. I hate that some of the little tabs that hold the armor on his arms and his legs broke off so easily. They wouldn't stay on at all if I didn't have them taped on. But I keep him in bot mode and like the way the armor looks.

    Oh, if we're talking the first Transforming toy, mine was Lion Voltron, the Transformers weren't around then. The Shogun warriors hadn't appealed to me. I had watched the Gobots on TV, but I didn't buy any of them either.
