    My first was Clawjaw from BW around 96-67, when I was like 4-5. I remember at the store my dad saw Rhinox on the shelf and he was like "are you sure you don't want the Rhino one?" And I was just so adamant about wanting the squid, a good choice in my opinion.

    I don't remember my very first TF although i'm sure it was a minibot, but my first deluxe was G1 Trailbreaker.

    My first & only TF as a youth was Cassette-Man whom I thought was a KO until I became interested in TF's as an adult.

    My first Transformers were KOs. Main line figs, even these days, are scarce in the Dominican Republic. But the concept of a robot and car/animal blew my mind as a kid!

    My first mainline fig was RID Galvatron, which i still have!

    G1 Triggercon Crankcase and Triggerbot Dogfight. Got them at a Chirstmas party or something. I wasn't even that into Transformers then, though I'd watched the cartoon, but I fell in love with both of them. I've since lost Dogfight, but I still have Crankcase. He's a bit worse for wear and currently in pieces while I replace his rusted screws, but I still love him. XD

    I got into collecting much later than most here. The only figure from way back that I can remember having is G1 Rippersnapper. Dunno why he's the only one I can think of. I think I also had Hun-Gurr as well. Anyways, the first figure I got that got me into collecting was RotF Leader Optimus Prime. And the rest is history...

    Beast Wars Snarl (the Tasmanian devil). I thought it was close enough to Rattrap-there weren't any of the actual cast members on the shelf. Damn collectors ;)

    I was born back in 89 so missed out on all the fresh G1 goodness. My most fuzzy memory of transformers was having some red bike gobot? or some KO? I don't know.

    Few years after I remember FINDING a random optimus prime figure when I was like 7.

    But my ''proper'' transformer/first purchase would be Beastwars figures, probably one of the scout/smaller deluxes like Cheetor or Rattrap.

    My first as a kid? That's hard to remember. I DO remember one Xmas inparticular getting Jetfire and Trypticon, but I doubt they were my first. My first figure getting back into collecting was Classics Rodimus.
