    What's the first Transformers figure you ever had? Which fiction got you hooked?

    Here's mine:
    First TF figure - RID Wedge
    First TF show - Armada, but I somehow remember seeing the first episode of RID
    First comic book (ever) - End of the Road TPB in 2002
    First IDW comic - Hearts of Steel, because I like trains
    First G1 figure - Outback, freebie from a garage sale ~2007
    First BW figure - Reptilion, the Universe repaint of BW Iguanus

    [I just remembered this too, my first transforming toy ever was a Tonka cop-SUV I don't remember the name of]

    My first figure was Headmaster Siren.
    First show was Sunbow G1 and
    first comic was one of those Condor Comics reprints of the Marvel G1 comics.


    That's also the order I encountered Transformers.

    My first Transformers anything was Marvel Comics' Transformers #1.

    My first episode was Sunbow's MTMtE part 1.

    My first figure... I'm not sure. I don't think I actually bought anything during G1. I think I thought I was too old for toys at the time.

    My first TF was G1 Optimus Prime and my first show was the original G1 TF series. I didn't actually read any of the comics until the late 80's.

    My first figure was a 2003 Cyclonus of which I have no idea where he went.
    My first TV episode was Armada episode 1. I fell in love with the show after that.
    My first comic was MTMTE issue 3. (Unfortunately the comic store I went to didn't have 1 or 2) I fell in love with IDW after that.
    First G1 figure was nothing. I never got a G1 figure.

    First show: The original. I still love it and thanks to the boxset I'm discovering new episodes that I hadn't seen as a kid.

    First figure: FoC Ratbat. Okay he's not exactly my favorite figure, but I do like him.

    First comic: I did have a few that came with the generations figures, but I tend to give them away. Whatever one came with Generations Thundercracker.

    First G1 Figure - Omega Supreme loaned from my brother, gave it back at some point, though.
