I still regret not jumping on that when I had the chance, but alas I was a poor university student at the time.

Well I don't like to make publicity but, in that case it could help you, too I still have a KO version of this upgrade kit in my selling topic.

Sorry, but if I were to get the kit, which is pretty redundant now with the Devil Horns kit and guns, I'd track down a legit kit for a decent price.

It's how I roll.

Mine was the FP Bruticus upgrade. I remember applying for my 1st credit card because of this set. before that I was a cash only guy and had just started collecting Bayformers in retail stores. But anything Combaticons is a must have so I got with the times.

The first one I bought was City Commander. FP loyalist since.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Motto: "Freedom is the right to KNEEL BEFORE ZOD!"
This thread is now clearly about what your own personal first purchase was.

I got the Unicron.com Beast Machines set when they first came out. The stands for Blackarachnia and Thrust and the Cheetor swords are somewhere in storage even though I know for a fact that I don't have the figures anymore. I got the set just for the Key and I lost that when I moved.

(Seriously, does anyone have one they're willing to part with? The metal Key made for Beast Machines, not the plastic one made to go with Vector Sigma from Botcon '07.)

The first thing I got in the modern era of 3rd party companies (not just a couple of guys working out of a garage) would be the FP Cliff set. Thousands of dollars later... :lol: I mean, how else are you supposed to get a complete cast of the Movie let alone first out the rest of the gaps in the lineup?

First 3rd party toy I got was either City Commander or the Quintesson Judge. I think it might have been the Quint judge, but I can't say for sure. It blew me away that these holes were being filled in such an effective way.

That judge and CC have never stopped being in my display somewhere. I love CC so much that I've bought both upgrade sets for him and the Dr. Wu face. Sadly this is the first run of CC so the Dr. Wu face is useless. Need to buy either parts or (more likely) a CC KO just for the head.
