    My very first Transformers show was Transformers Animated. Technically I did see at least one of the Unicron Trilogy series, but I never sat down and watched it since I wasn't interested in Transformers quite yet. It was more of my brother who was the fan at the time.
    My very first Transformers figured is the Robots in Disguise 2015 Bumblebee Night-Ops figure that transformed in three steps. Funny thing is that I had the hardest time transforming it the first time; kind of funny looking back at it. He was the only 3-Step changer I bought. My first proper Transformers would actually be the three I received for Christmas which was Combiners Wars Ironhide, Mirage, and Prowl.

    I know my introduction into Transformers was the G1 Marvel comic (Didn't own a TV until later). I don't think it was issue one, though.
    I actually got a box full of transformers as my first transformer (from the son of one of my mom's coworkers). I remember there being a bunch of older G1 toys in the box.
    The first transformers toy I remember being bought for me was PMOP and a snaptrap.
    Still have my PMOP. I don't remember what happened to that Snaptrap.
    My first show was G1, but I didn' watch it until a little later. I remember that I didn't like it at first because it was so different from the comic that I had been reading for a little while at that point.

    Oh, I ended up forgetting that I actually do own a few Transformers comics. They were the IDW comics that came with Combiner Wars figures. I got the Ironhide, Mirage, and Prowl comics at the same time.

    series: G1, mostly FHE video cassettes. I remember when the G2 cartoon started I was very annoyed about no new episodes.

    Toy: I don't know who came first but I remember getting G1 Thrust and Ultra Magnus.

    Comics: Marvel but I didn't really read them. Maybe someday.

    My first show was BW. Didn't buy any of the toys until the movie though. And I didn't read the comics until MTMTE came out. First G1 figure is Ultra Magnus I think.

    First toy: either G2 Optimus Prime (using the G1 mold, though later I also got Laser Prime) or G2 Brickatr - I mean Megatron.

    First show: Sunbow G1, though I think my very first transformers media might've been the movie cut up into episodes.

    First comic book: a translated reissue of Marvel Transformers by TM-Semic, dunno which exact one, but I distinctly remember a few, like Ratchet having to face off against Megatron alone on the Ark, Megatron falling off a cliff because of the Dinobots and getting stuck in gun mode, some human using him for robbing banks and Shockwave owning Megatron with a water tower.
