    G1 I really can't recall, though it might have been one of the Micromaster Combiners sets or Pretender Starscream.
    G2 You got me, way too long ago.
    BW Definately Razorbeast and maybe Optimus Primal/Megatron deluxe 2-pack.
    BM I'm stumped, but most likely one of the basics at the time.
    RID If I had to guess I'd say RID Car Brothers Side Burn, Prowl and X-Brawn.
    Armada Toughie... My memory for buying toys isn't very good to be honest and I don't keep track of which ones I bought first in a line... That being said, Either Hot Shot/Jolt, Cyclonus/Crumplezone or the Air Defense Team.
    Energon I bet it was Battle Ravage and Divebomb, but it could have been Hot Shot, Inferno, Starscream and Rapid Run.
    Cybertron My best guess is Hot Shot or Red Alert, I was buying new toys practically every other day when it first came out so I can't be too sure.
    Universe I would definately have to say Optimus Primal, because at the time I had never owned the origina Gorilla mold, soon to be rectified I hope.
    Robot Masters Psycho Orb the one and only figure I've managed to pick up for this line so far, though I so want the others.
    Galaxy Force I started before Cybertron hit the store shelves, I got Auto Micron team, Micron Team and of course Voyager scale Starscream.
    SWTF Both Darth Vader/TIE Advanced and Obi-Wan/Jedi Starfighter were purchased together.
    The Movie Barricade/Decepticon Frenzy
    Robot Heroes Grimlock/Shockwave
    Alternators... Well D'uh Smokescreen of course.
    Classics Astrotrain
    Titaniums Beast Wars Megatron 3' and my first 6' was War Within Sunstorm.
    Heroes of Cybertron PVCs All of Wave 2 with Optimus Prime/Energy Axe, Megatron/Energy Flail, Ultra Magnus, Paradron Medic and Thundercracker. (Wave 1 never showed up here, neither did Wave 3 or Wave 5 sadly and I still want them. :mad )
    Super Link Galvatron General & Nightscream Reverse because I prefered their paint jobs over the domestic ones.
    Botcon Exclusives Sideswipe, Shadow Striker & Roulette thanks to a friend of mine from the states.
    Machine Wars Megatron because at the time I was interested in MW, nowadays not so much so I'll probably only enver have Megs.
    Animorphs (Because their packaging says Transformers on it.) Cassie/Wolf I think.
    Playschool Go-Bots Speedbot, Gorillabot and Cheetor.
    1,2,3 Transformers Never Started.
    My Very First Transformers, See above.


    Edited: Forgot...
    BWII Tonbot.
    BW Neo Stampy.

    Well for me, G2 was the first line I went into strictly as a collector with "disposable income" so for that and every line after it really was multiple purchases at once:

    G2: on the same trip I bought Optimus, Jazz, Sideswipe, Starscream, Ramjet, Bumblebee, Seaspray, Hubcap, Beachcomber, Grimlock, Snarl & Slag...

    Beast Wars (was working at Target) so right when they came in I bought, again...all at the same time: Rattrap, Terrorsaur, Razorbeast, Iguanus, Op v Meg 2 pack, Dinobot, Cheetor & Tarantulas

    pretty much the same MO for every line since...I know the new line is coming, and make sure I have the funds for that big first hit and scoop 'em up...

    The only line I think I made an individual purchase as my first was Alternators...because there wasn't a second figure yet :p

    Yeah, no idea for most of 'em. G1 was definitely Windcharger. G2 was probably tank Megs on clearance at KB. Alternators, MP and 6" Titanium = 'the first one,' but other than that...pfft.

    D'oh! I forgot Classics... Mine was Megatron, too. I made the peoples at Target pull it from the back. Those were the days... Finding toys you want without too much trouble...

    EDIT: I forgot Alts, too... Smokescreen was the first there.
