    My first TF toy was Trailbreaker. I didn't even know what a Transformer was at the time, I liked him but he wasn't my favorite character.

    Nope. The first TF I remember owning was G1 Bumblebee (red variation) back in 1984. I still have him.

    None of my first toys appeared in show. The first TF toys I got were the McDonalds Rhino and Panther toys. The first real Transformer I got in a store was Injector.

    Man, I got ripped off as a kid when it came to Transformers.

    My first recent toy was RotF Optimus Prime and he's my favorite so far. I'm sure I had some as a kid, but it's been too long and don't have any of them anymore.

    My first was Prime in 84, but I probably had 10 or 12 before my favorite character showed up one Christmas from Grandma. Grimlock baby!!!

    My first TF was G1 Mirage. He's not necessarily my favorite character, but I was pretty big on Mirage back in the day. Didn't hurt that he was the guy who saved the day in the MTMTE cartoon pilot.

    G1 Skywarp was my first - Shiny jet black F-15, what's not to like? He's still my favourite Decepticon, but Jetfire is my overall favourite.

    Nope, never had Starscream as a kid. Just a hand-me-down Soundwave and Diaclone Powered Convoy had to be my "Optimus Prime."

    My first TF was Astrotrain (along with my brother's Blitzwing). Both are two of my all time favorites.

    My favorite TF is Soundwave however. Steangely enough I never had a Soundwave figure until Animated. I am definitely getting MP-Soundwave however.

    Nope. Got BW Terrorsaur back in the day, and I'm not particularly fond of the character.
