    Whoo boy, lets see if I can remember

    The farthest I can think back to is a G1 Devastator back about 3 / 4 years ago

    I'm pretty sure I bought something else earlier than that, but cant for the life of me remember.

    My first internet purchase years ago was porn. After having to cancel my credit card to reverse the charges I learned not to verify my age that way. :lol

    I have no idea what my real first payment was. I do have a Paypal invoice from "Saturday, June 9, 2001 1:23 PM" for a certain "GI Joe 'Ace' 1983 Hasbro 3-3/4" figure" that I am not sure I own anymore.

    Transformers: The Movie on VHS.

    If I remember correctly it was from Canada! And that was around '99.

    Not sure what site it was from though.

    And, as I just started putting some stuff on eBay again, I noticed that I've been a member of eBay for almost 11 years. Dammmmmmmmmmmn!

    It was the 12th Anniv Macross VF-1F (Roy) figure. About 7" tall & couldn't transform. Was the only one I was missing.

    I know my first ebay purchase was Mega Man 2 for the NES sometime in early 2000, but I think I was ordering from A&B Sound's online store in the late-90's or so, before switching over to Amazon.

    Look at my Sig (well, currently... in a few chapters/ updates it will be different, though both should still be in it). It shows my first online purchase & my last.

    My first purchase was Masterpiece Voltron, & (since I was making the order) Rick's VF-1A from Robotech/ Macross from Image Anime, I think in '06.

    I've since ordered a handful of out of stock anime DVDs from BestBuy.com, & FansProject's Crossfire 02 A & B from TFSource, & that has been ALL I've bought via the Internet. All after I did research to make sure the place I was ordering from was legitimate. & all w/o credit. :p

    Ebay:
    That would have been a Beast Wars Magnaboss on Ebay back in 1998.

    I remember being so nervous about buying online that I asked for the guy's phone number & called him to confirm my shipping address. LoL

    Wasn't too big on emails back then. :noob

    IIRC, it was a loose complete Storm Shadow, Destro, and Baroness from Digital Toys. Early 1997 ish.


    This was when eBay usernames were the same as your email address, you could randomly leave someone feedback because you felt like it, and Paypal didn't even exist yet.
