    G1 Cliffjumper, back when it was first released in the 80's. Still have it in great condition, minus some looseness and a little paint chipping underneath.

    The first real Transformer I got was a G1 Strafe, in fact it was the only one I had as a kid. My father got me a bunch of GoBots and tried to pass them off as Transformers and I am still scarred today from that, lol.

    Micromaster Hot Rod Patrol. Still have them although poor Trip Up and Big Daddy being my favorites really show it being floppy as heck.

    G1 Soundwave when it first released here in Australia. My mum went to the local toy store when the first shipment of Transformers arrived and got the very last Soundwave they had. They had nearly sold out on all lines. I only wanted Soundwave. Of course he was added to substantially over the next couple of years... And then ever since.

    G1 Barrage.
    I asked Grimlock for Sinterklaas. But my parents couldn't find him or something.
    Barrage was awesome though. His articulation was ahead of it's time and I had lots of fun with him.
    Plus he had this goofy Mr Punch face in botmode :lol

    G1 Optimus Prime. After a steady diet of GoBots and Off brand non-transformers and converters, I traded with my friends to the point I got the figure (no trailer or accessories).

    The first from a store was G1 Skydive. When I saw the aerial bots, I had to have them and Skydive was the only one my family could find.

    Transmetals Cheetor or BW Snarl, not sure which. Then G1 Pyro. Those were the only TFs I had until I was an adult. Pyro broke due to GPS, but Snarl and Cheetor are on my shelf.

    That was my grail as a kid. The one from my childhood is long gone, but I've got the Movie Tribute set now, so I'm happy. :) 

    First TF was a Burger King Kid's Meal Bumblebee toy from the first movie, given to me by my brother. My first properly converting Transformer was Legends Class Rescue Ratchet. My first properly sized Transformer was Deluxe 2008 Camaro Bumblebee.

    G1 Cliffjumper. Still have it too!

    The first TF I purchased with my own money was G1 Soundwave from TRU. Still have that, too, although he's seen better days. Hundreds of transformations from a 12 year-old will do that.

    FoC Ratbat. I like TFs. I like cute widdle batties. So I grabbed the Ratbat/Frenzy pack to share.

    Is he my favorite? Not really. But he's not lonely, as he hangs out with my Dark Dizzy figure.

    He's been in a fair amount of photoshoots and he transforms real easy, which is a plus for me, because I'm a transforming dunce.
