    I was thinking about this the other day and realized my first Transformer was either G1 Swerve or Blast-Off. It's amazing where a collection can start. So where did yours begin?

    G1 yellow Cliffjumper. And when one of the nieghborhood kids pointed out it wasn't Bumblebee I wanted to cry. Later that year I got Sunstreaker for my birthday and Mirage for Christmas, I always considered them to be my first.

    Well I came into the whole thing relatively late - I remember watching the old episodes with my brother when we were little kids but the first Tranformer I got was Barricade.
    He's the first of three I own apart from some robot heroes...(college is sucking all my money!)

    G1 Beachcomber. I'd like to eventually own an original, still on the card, for nostalgia's sake.

    I have a pic of me on my 5th birthday holding a still unopened G1 Ultra Magnus that my Dad had given me, around here somewhere.

    G1 Thundercracker. And I still have him. Other than being slightly green and having lots of chips on his bare diecast metal, he's in pretty decent shape for a 25 year old toy. He still has all his accessories, with the only casuality in a quarter century having been one broken long missile. :) 

    My second Transformer, G1 Ratchet, has fared MUCH worse. :p

    Thats easy,G1 Mirage,and how I know this was cause I got him on my Birthday back in
    '84,and he is still in my collection,then my second was Jetfire,cause I helped out and I
    saved for 3 weeks (a record for being a 9 year old),ended up trading him to my cousin
    for some other can't remember which one.But that is my first 2 TF's,now I have over
    500 or 600 TF's in my collection,and I am making a decision to stop buying anymore new
    TF's after the 2nd movie,and set to complete the older figures like BW,G1 and so forth
    as its a never ending battle to try to get the newest.

    My first Transformer was Powermaster Optimus Prime. Got me hooked on Transformers from that day on!

    And to this day my Mom blames herself for the TF fan that I have become XD
    Every time she says something about my collection I remind her "This is all your fault you know!" to which she always sighs and says "I know, I know..." :lol

    G1 Irohide for Christmas when I was 11. Man was I pissed. Of all of the Tfs I could have gotten to be my first, I got the headless wonder, the brainfart of engineering, one of the ugliest Tfs ever made, but it will always hold a special place in my heart. I have one MIB sitting on my desk right now. I will never part with it..... maybe...... possibly...... Oh who am I kidding. This thing is going on Ebay?

    Mine was G1 Trailbreaker....got him for my birthday back in either '84 or '85. Sadly, I broke him a couple of years afterwards....his head snapped right off.

    On a related note, hooray for Encore Trailbreaker!
