    I'd been away for roughly ten years when the '07 Movie came out. I went into Forbidden Planet and saw Deluxe Bonecrusher and picked him up, then Classics Ramjet (my best friend when I was younger had a G1 Ramjet and I thought it was the best toy ever) so I walked out with those two. A week later it was my birthday and MP Prime, The Megatron vs Prime 2 pack, Reissue Prowl and Reissue Inferno came home with me. The rest is history with a few lows and many highs :D

    For me, it was a gift for a friend. Actually a friend of a friend. I was over at their place one day and saw that he had Masterpiece Optimus Prime on display, and he was lamenting how there was no bumblebee to stand next to him. Well, his birthday rolled around, and I found a classics Bumblebee (back when they were still on the pegs) and gave it to him for his birthday. I toyed around with it after he opened it and fell in love with the new engineering and went right back to the store to buy myself one. Well, it was all down hill from there and I've been a Classics collector ever since (on top of Masterpiece, Alternity, and Animated (and soon to be Prime))

    Classics Rodimus & Starscream from Amazon. Imagine my surprise when I realized how heavily photoshopped Hasbro's promo shots were. I thought those things were gonna be glossy!! Still, after buying those two, I haven't looked back........

    The movie '74 camaro Bumblebee. I thought it was pretty neat, except for the Daffy Duck feet. I started getting others in that line, and then discovered the internet TF communties, and online stores. My first online TF purchase was MP5 Megatron. I might have sunk a few more bills into Transformers since then...

    I lost interest around late Armada/early Energon, my interest returned when I saw the preview of TF07, sometime late, I bought Movie 1 Starscream.

    Classics Starscream from Argos. Was bored in town with my mum who wa talking ages, I'd just been paid, glanced at the tou section of the catalogue, could resist seeing what a "new" transformer was like.

    2007 Movie Barricade. That mold still holds a special place in my heart.

    TFA Blurr. Then I went on a ROTF binge that I regret, save for a few figures.

    Ironically enough, Machine Wars Thundercracker. The irony here is that G1 Thundercracker is my first TF ever.
