I started with the original Mini Series, and moved into the figures with an awesome start of the Vamp, HAL, and the MMS along with SE and Scarlett for Xmas, and was hooked when I picked up my first issue of the comic #30.

I remember my first figure was Breaker, he cost $2.50 and I was mad that he didn't come with a gun, just the headset. I also got the RAM for $5.50 and I was excited. It wasn't until I read the comics that I learned the RAM belonged to Rock N' Roll

It's funny ... scrolling through all 16 pages of this thread, seeing people list their first Joe toys, I realized I have a story to go with almost every Joe figure or vehicle I had during the first couple of years I was collecting...
Anyway, started in '83. I was a huge Star Wars fan until that summer. I hadn't heard the word "trilogy." I thought they'd just go on making Star Wars movies forever. And then I saw "Return of the Jedi." The saga was over, and suddenly there was a big void in my seven-year-old life.
A few months later, it was a Saturday in September, and the usual cartoons were over, and I flipped to the local UHF (KSMO 62!) and there was the "MASS Device" series, running in its entirety. I knew about Joe before that, from the commercials, but I wasn't interested. They were "just" soldiers, while Star Wars was about outer space. But seeing the cartoon, that did it for me. I got my mom to take me to Children's Palace that very afternoon. Came home with Destro and Short-Fuze. The rest was history.
