    That would be Titanium Ultra Magnus. It turned out to be a terrible figur, but when I saw it on the shelf, the urge to buy a childhood hero proved hard to resist.

    It helped get me back into transformers, and I haven't looked back since.

    The first small spark for me was getting MP-04 as a Christmas present in 2006. Then I picked up a couple Alternators (Prime and Jazz/Meister), and a couple classics (Hot Rod and Starscream). After that, it was maybe 1-2 toys every other month until I picked up my red Alternity Convoy last December. Then I got the Protector armor for Hot Rod, the FP Bruticus kit, and a large tote's worth of stuff at a small convention nearby :lol  :eek:

    ... had to read that a couple times because I kept parsing it as "I bought Prime and a very special woman!"

    I had not really bought any Transformers since I was a child in the 80s watching the old cartoon, but when the first live-action film began to get teased in theatres, I was wandering through Wal-Mart one day and saw Classics Starscream - and I picked it up on a whim. I went back the next day for Classics Bumblebee and I haven't been able to stop picking up Transformers since.

    This one is easy. I bought BW Primal and Megatron as a throwback to my childhood. In the same purchase I bought Rattrap cuz I enjoyed his character. The rest is about 1000 Transformers later history.

    First it was 20th Anniversary Prime... or maybe the TFC reissue Megatron. Can't remember which one I got first. I lost interest when TFC ended and the Alternators line got all screwy with Prowl, no Bumblebee, and small/weird colours MP Starscream, etc.

    EDIT: I forgot, even before that it was the TRU G1 reissues that drew me in. I remember seeing a brand new, shiny Thundercracker at my friend's place, and being blown away that I could get it at retail!

    Much more recently, I got into the CHUG stuff, Faith Leader, MP Grimlock and the seekers... Technically the first one I got was MP Skywarp (US version), then Walmart Starscream of ebay, then a few Henkei bots and Faith Leader... Even though he wasn't first, I think iGear's Faith Leader was the one that really drew me in (i.e. a properly scaled G1 Prime that worked with the other MPs and CHUG Autobots at the same time).

    See how third party TFs can work to HasTak's advantage? :)
