    I remember vividly. We weren't rich by any means so I didn't have TF's like the other kids but I was insanely happy when I got my first TF.

    That being Sunstreaker.

    First ones I played with were my cousins G1 Prime and Megatron. I had some gobot helecopter that I thought was a tf for the longest time, but my first I owned were g1 Prime and soundwave. (they were hand me downs). To this day I have never had a G1 Prime in my hands that had roller with it or its trailer door.

    My first TFs were second-hand (I was born in '83), but somehow I managed to have a Diaclone Powered Convoy (blue Prime) with Optimus' trailer. How, I don't know. But that's what I had.

    Along with that I had Soundwave. Missing pretty much everything it came with. No cassettes, no batteries/weapons, not even the battery cover was there.

    Which of those I had first I honestly don't remember. But those were my first two Transformers.

    Beast Wars Snarl. Not the best figure ever made, but he was one of my favorite toys at the time. Kinda wish I still had him.

    Hey me too! It was my brothers though and I was too young to realize that the headmaster went with the figure, but I would sneak into his room and play with it anyway. I recently rediscovered the main body down in my parents basement. Now I just need the headmaster, tail weapon, and gun to make him complete.

    The very first TF I can recall owning was Runabout or Runamuck (I can't remember which one) but it was lost soon after. I can also remember my Mom getting me the MM Race Car Patrol a couple of years later - which I also sunsequently lost... *shakes head*

    G1 Ultra Magnus! I'd never forget all the memories I have of him...was a cool toy then and still cool now. My only wish would be a Masterpiece set with trailer/armor like MP-04.

    Got Sideswipe pretty much right when they hit the shelfs in '84. Already had bought the comic when the first issue came out so I was familiar with Transformers already. My friends birthday was coming up so my parents took me to get my friend a present. I got him Hound. He destroyed that thing in a matter of months. My Sideswipe didn't last too long either. Ended up replacing him after about a year. Never turned back from there. Pretty cool because at his birthday party we watched the debuting Transformers cartoon. Damn good times I must say. If only I could be 9 in 1984 again.

    I got G1 Optimus Prime for my 4th B-day back in 1984. I still have him boxed up somewhere, but he's missing his left arm.

    First toy, I can't really remember. It had to be ironhide, Hound or Grimlock. It was probably Hound however
