Who was your first Transformer? Mine was g1 Skywarp. That was a good day.
Mine was Mirage. I think i got him for my 4th birthday... like right when he came out. Or maybe it was Christmas. He was my favourite, too bad my older sister snapped him in half at the wait.
G1 Skywarp as well, and I remember the shop (which no longer exists) where my dad bought him for me. I just got the Classics Skywarp yesterday, and man... that brought some memories back.
EDIT: I still have him with all accessories, although the missile launchers no longer work and the long missiles had to be glued back together because they snapped in half at one point. He's a bit loose from an ENORMOUS amount of playtime, and some of his stickers are faded, but he's there.
It was either Headmasters Nightbeat for Christmas '88 at my relatives house or Pretender Bumblebee for my birthday (I can't remember if it was the one before or after Christmas). Coincidentally, one of my first memories of being shown photographs included one of me opening Nightbeat. That jogged my memory early on and helped me to have a clear memory of it to this day
Thundercracker and Sludge.
...the Action Master.
Deluxe Insecticon Barrage.
Second, and first Autobot... Powerglide. (and I was able to get it autographed at BC two years back.)
Mirage for me too.
G1 Optimus Prime in 1984.
I didn't even really know what transformers were (it was before the cartoon came out). I just thought it was cool because it was a semi-truck that turned into a robot.
Little did I know what I was getting myself into.
G1 Thundercracker in 1984 when I was 8 years old.
G1 Hot Rod.
G1 Optimus back on Christmas of 84'. I was 6.
The first Transformer in the house was Starscream who my 12 year old brother got as soon as the toys came out. I wanted one bad, but I didn't like the Decepticons then, I wanted Optimus Prime and Jazz.
Jazz was #2, about a minute after I opened Optimus.
Unofficially, I had a pre-franchise THUNDERCRACKER (with the little Diaclone pilot) brought over from Japan by a globe-trotting relative who knew I loved robots. I also ended up with a "SOUNDWAVE" and red "TRAILBREAKER" from the same source long before they arrived here in the West - They got a few kids jealous, I can tell ye!
My first officially branded Transformer was G1 MIRAGE
In the shop I was 'umming' and 'ahhing' about him or HOUND and got in a mood because I couldn't afford both. I did like MIRAGE, but with hindsight wish I'd gone for HOUND (which I did eventually, but the "grass is always greener" at that age!).
G1 Ratchet for christmas, either '84 or '85
Mine was Hook, back in '88, my bro and I both got a Hook as he was the only tf figure they had for sale in the shop. One of the Hooks is still present, I traded the other as a kid, can't even remember what for. Good ol' times.
I think mine was actually the "My First Transformer" dump truck.
Energon Rodimus But I Lost his Orange Heals But I Remeber on Friday After opening Titanium Rodimus i Felt very satisfied
G1 Hound - still got him although his head tends to fall of these days!
