Mine was G1 Bluestreak. I know it was Christmas and my cousin immediately grabbed it from me because I didn't know what it was and when I grabbed it back, it broke. :sad: So it didn't last more than a few minutes. I still have him, as glued as I could get him but he's never transformed. I have many G1's in less than poor condition now because I loved them so much, they got a lot of play time. :)

Well, it was either Gears, Megatron or Soundwave back in Christmas 1984. Megs might have even been a birthday present in August............ Cant remember it all

I got Gears from Sears but I dont remember if it was before or after Christmas. I even remember how hard it used to be to find Optimus Prime in stores back then. He was always the first one sold out.

I've never sold or traded any of them since day one.
Watching since episode 1 aired in 84
Reading since #4 released in 84
GM for life.
If it's not G1 it's not canon

Motto: "We will put out thee fires of evil!"
Weapon: Ionic Blaster
You all may not believe me, but my first TF was...EVERY YEAR ONE CHARACTER!

Well, maybe Bumper, but how I got them all was that I saved a lot of money for a charity (not to mention, B-Day money and finding lots of cash). But when said charity was cancelled in the same day the commercial of the Marvel comic was aired. And that gave me interest, making me get said characters in the toyline, with spared money used for the Year 2 characters.

FYI, I knew that they were Diaclones at first, because I went to Japan in '83 (a year before Takara and later Hasbro announce the TF's).

Perhaps, but it's a legitimate topic. :) As for me, I certainly can't remember offhand! But it would have been either G2 version G1 Optimus Prime, G2 Jazz, or G2 Sideswipe.

Hey everyone, I'm new here, collector from Savannah, Georgia. Anyways my first transformers toy was pretty much all of the g2 gobots. The ones they carried at the dollar store way back when, but the first one I remember was the color changers deluge.

Deluge is pretty great, mine's a tad beat up now, haha. He got a lot of play and his color-changing parts are all faded.
The Rotor Force is another subline I remember fondly. Which reminds me, I really do need to try to find Voyager Powerdive.

Indeed, my deluge has long since been lost, but at SavCon this past summer I was able to grab a gobots from that line, could be better, could be worse, but for $4, it's worth the nostalgia.
