    The G1 yellow Cliffjumper. My brother had the red Bumblebee. I also got G1 Jazz and Bluestreak, I can't remember the order for sure.
    Then my brothers and I mainly got Gobots until I got a G1 Scourge for my birthday...

    Two G1 Dinobots at neighbors garage sale in 1989.I don't really remember which ones and at the time I didn't even realize they were Transformers as I was 7 and just picked them because they were dinosaurs.It is only looking back now that I'm sure they were Transformers.

    I wish Optimus had been my first. But I got him Megatron and Skywarp that Christmas. So I got no complaints.

    Hell, just name which dinosaurs they were and any of us old farts could tell you the names. Even back then, bringing in the Dinobots was a brilliant move by Hasbro. All the kids loved Transformers and dinosaurs.

    Can't remember the year, It was probably '02 or '03 but it was the Armada Gold Optimus and Jetfire combo set.

    Beast Wars Basic Iguanus. Alas, when I tried to find my old Beast Wars toys a few years ago all that remained of him was the end of his tailgun.

    That's always sad when something like that happens. I found a Blitzwing turret, and some accessories, but no figure. I also found Superion's helmet and chestpiece, but nothing else. I also found a single Slingshot wing.

    My first was G1 Optimus. But few months before I received a little tanker truck bot,just as Octane but with no 3rd transformation.His cab was blue,with little bot size as G1 Bumblebee and Pipes.
    Perhaps was a Gobot or something else,for me it's sad I never knew who could have been.
