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.

My first transformer was either G1 Ramjet of G1 Warpath. I was too young to remember which I got first.

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.

G1 Optimus Prime ^_^

G2 Motormouth was my first one too, but i didn't lose the gun at all. Instead he just vanished along with the gun after 3 long years and i never found him or that gun ever again

G1 Smokescreen, shortly after he came out. I was actually disappointed, as I wanted either Bluestreak, Sideswipe, or Jazz, and none of them were on the shelves - so I had to settle for "Almost" Bluestreak as I called him.

I can't recall if I already posted in this zombie thread, but I'm not about to check the whole thing to see, so if I've already said this before, oh well.

My first actual Transformer was G1 Megatron, but I also previously had a Diakron pre-transformer blue pre-Trailbreaker.

Actually before that one I had a red pre-Sunstreaker, but took it back due to a flaw that made me think it was defective (turned out both of my actual TF Sunstreakers wound up having the same flaw, though) and exchanged it for the pre-Trailbreaker.

First Autobot was G1 Brawn.

G1 Optimus Prime when I was 6. My uncle knew I liked trucks, so he bought me what he thought was just a toy truck for my birthday. He was in shock when I took it out of the box and started to 'break' it and I turned it into a robot (look ma', no instructions and no one told me it was a robot, I did it by myself :P!).

After that, I was hooked.

Weapon: Battle Blades
I was big into dinosaurs, so my parents got me this strange robot anatomically inaccurate Tyrannosaurus called 'Grimlock'. It was many months before I realized he could transform into a robot, and when I performed the action, I discovered a whole new world.

I needed someone to go up against this 'Autobot', so I found a rival in the form of my first 'Decepticon', the unusually large space gun with the awesome name: Shockwave.

Ever since, they have been my favorite characters and I go out of my way to get whatever molds they release.

My fist transformer was the Generation Two Optimus Prime when I was 5. My dad collected during the eighties but had to sell his collection. When he saw that they were bringing back some of the G1 molds he didn't hesitate to buy me Optimus Prime, his first transformer. I've been hooked since. The first transformer I bought myself was the yellow G2 Mixmaster.

G1 Starscream. Way back in 1984 or so. Was really disappointed it wasn't very posable and that the nose was rubber instead of metal. And that the fists were separate and you had to put on the stickers yourself.
