My first transforming toy wasn't a Transformers transformer.
It was this little robot that tranformed into a logo for some medicine.

Edit: My first Transformers transformer was Dinobot.

I think I got a bunch on Christmas of 84 which included Optimus Prime and Soundwave so I don't remember exactly which was my first. I DO remember my brother's first which I still have: G1 Sideswipe.

I bought G1 Prowl and Powermaster Optimus Prime at the same time in 1994. So they share the honor. Since then, my original Powermaster Prime was lost and I just recently replaced him.

G1 Mirage, and a multi-colored knock-off G1 Devastator. Sadly fifteen years ago, my sister accidentally mistook my box of old toys as Salvation Army stuff, and donated it to an orphanage in a fit of utter stupidity. In all likelihood, it got smashed to shards within minutes by some kid who has no idea how much a G1 Mirage is worth these days.

Didn't find out until years later.

The closest I ever got to owning Mirage again was his Classics version that I bought as an adult.

Maybe this belongs more in the "worst thing that happened to your TF" thread... :sad:

G1 Wheelie.

Thankfully, he's also one of the few TFs I've lost.

After that came Lightspeed and Nautilator.

hmm my first "transformer" was a Diaclone Dia Train and Cosmo Roller and the Diaclone Jazz version.

My first toy with a Transformers logo on it was G1 Thrust. :grin:

Being from Europe, I was late in the game (relatively). Plus, I've had a hiatus :P

My very first couple of Transformers were the members of the Micromaster Off Road Patrol: Powertrain, Mudslinger, Highjump and Tote. Later on I got more Micromaster sets, I love those little buggers (which also explains my love for mini-Cons). Later on, during the 1991 reissue era I got my first full-size figures: Defensor, Wheeljack and Throttlebot Searchlight.

The figures that got me into collecting were Armada Sideways and RiD Optimus Prime on clearance. Never regretted it ^^

Top 5 Priorities:

1) BW Neo X-7 Elphaorpha
2) RiD Landfill (Heavy Load acquired)
3) Universe 2003 Night Slash Cheetor
4) Arms Micron Terrorcon Bumblebee
5) BW Convobat (red) & Megalligator (purple)

My First Transformer was the G1 Optimus Prime, the trailer was black, and so was the noise badge. I lost his fists, never played with him again. :cry: When Aniversary Prime came out, i got him. He's in my bedroom on my dresser. :grin:




Others were a Garage sale Slag? don't know which one was the Triceratops. I even had one of the constructicons. I forgot which one. And also had a non transformable robot mode Bumblebee.

Motto: ""Excessive force is not necessary.""
Ah, memories!
Soundwave was my first figure, back in the good ol 80's. I hadn't even seen the cartoon yet, but was intrigued by the chunky cannon-carrying bots from the first issue of the Marvel comic, so I said "what the hay" and made room in my GI Joe dominated budget for the cool looking cassette player with the robot hawk tape, and I was hooked. I knew as I click-clacked him back and forth between bot and alt mode that I needed more. MORE! Now, 1000 TFs later, I still have a fond place of honor on my shelves for this marvelous piece of my personal Transformers history. :)
