    1st Transformer I ever owned was basically a 5-finger discounted item from a Sears in a mall back in 84. It was G1 Silverstreak (Bluestreak) first TF I ever owned that wasn't Stolen was Snarl and Blaster. hmmmm, now that i think about it I was in Edgewood Children's center at the time. there was a couple staff who bought me some Transformers. I recall owning a Sureshot, oh and also I owned a G1 Shockwave, and a Shackwave. also a G1 Jetfire. and yes I def owned Insecticons and Constructicons.

    Hey, before you judge about the Bluestreak, I was an angry 8 year old kid, because I had no family and was forcefully put into the group homes/Foster Care system by the Department of Social Service in Contra Costa County California. Never had cash, nobody ever gifted me with toys. yet i saw other kids always getting stuff from their families or going home for the holidays. My childhood was trash. and I have the emotional and physical scarring to prove it. But, that's neither here nor there now since I'm 44 years old now. :lol 

    Anyway...yup. G1 Bluestreak (Silverstreak)

    I'm not really sure which came first for me...it was either Pretender Bumblebee or Action Master Devastator. I do know that at one point I lost or broke Bumblebee's Pretender shell & gun & lost or broke Devastator so for the longest time Bumblebee used Devastator's gun :lol .

    My first Transformer was Bluestreak in '84 when I was 8. My Dad bought it for me because he used to own a 240Z which was pretty close to a 280Z. I had a bunch of Gobots at the time as well. I can't remember what my second Transformer was but my first Decepticon was Thundercracker. I don't have many of my childhood toys left besides Lego but I do still have a few Starcom sets and my son loves them. Those are great toys.

    Soundwave was my first and he stayed in his box for 2 days until I got jealous of my brother playing with his Starscream.

    My first was G1 Bluestreak back in '84. He didn't survive the 80s, unfortunately.

    RID01 Heavy Load and Mega Octane. Got both of them for either Christmas or my sixth birthday, I can't remember which. My original Heavy Load was functionally decapitated when the cockpit piece fell off, but Mega Octane is still around! Missing his chestplate, though, and that's been the case for as long as I can remember.

    Not mine (it was my cousins's), but the first transformers I ever messed with was ROTF Knock Out:

    My first own transformers toy was tf prime cyberverse starscream:

    And my first tf into my resurgence into the tf fandom was TLK Slash (who I only wanted because of my interest in power rangers at that time):

    G1 Cliffjumper and Bumblebee. I traded for them from a friend. I think the cost was a bag of marbles. The first Transformer I got from a store was Topspin

    I'm not completely sure. Maybe Hoist or Ramjet? G1. I also had Slag and Sludge around that time.

    I'll never forget my first. I was at a local shopping mall with my family, and we went to the toy store. They had a display of these things called "Transformers", which blew my mind. I remember the crisp box art so vividly, and how cool I thought they were. Somehow managed to talk my folks into getting one, and it was Mirage. I loved everything about it. My next was Prowl. Not long after that it was time for Christmas, which brought Optimus, Shockwave, and Soundwave, and then it was off to the races!

    G1 Ramjet. It was the most beautiful toy I had ever seen. Must’ve been in ‘85-‘86

    Word! Some here. Except it was the Premium edition from 2008. That and the Spychanger Optimus Prime (profile picture) were my first two Transformers.

    Gobot Staks in I think 85.
    I remember choosing him out of a catalogue.

    Not sure what Transformer I got first, pretty sure it was either Warpath, Powerglide or Seaspray...never got any of the larger ones back then.

    I did get a cup, plate and bowl set with the toy Optimus and Megaton artwork on them in 85, still have the plate and bowl.

    My older brother's first was Soundwave and Buzzsaw.
    He also had the 3D puzzles of Bluestreak and Starscream.

    First transformers was protectobot hotspot. Odly enough the G1 toy version is still the best.
