I've been a fan from the start. My first 2 were Zap and Short Fuse, but once the toon came out, I went Snake eyes for fav (like most everyone, I think). Been collecting since near the beginning, too, but don't have much of the collection(s), except the 25th. That I'm only missing a few pieces to.
-Transformers classics; Megatron, various voyager and ultra, legends Beachcomber, and any 3.0 past the first 4, minus Rattrap
-various Marvel Legends (some BaFs parts.)
-Hot Wheels Treasure Hunts (for my dad and nephew)

Been a fan since my father got me a Gung-Ho v.1 when I was like 3 or 4. My brother already was on board so it was easy for me to make the move as well.

I played with the toys in the 80's and then 'put my toys away'. Then when the 25th line was introduced I began collecting because of the memories they brought back.

Sara's story time!
I was five, which would have made it... 1992ish. My dad and my brother took me to Groovies, a classy used toy store in Pittsburgh. I was looking for monsters, and instead found these wonderful pseudo-military toys that my brother, a child of the 80's, was buying. My father got me Mindbender, Golobulus, and the Baroness, who was expensive (!), but it reminded him of my mother, and thus me. I can't even begin to convey what a formative experience that was. Joes were largely off the shelves at that point; I was able to find a few of the Mega Marines at Kaybees, but that was it. So, in order to coerce me into triweekly Judo practice, my father would take me to Groovies on Saturdays and buy me Joes, using them as models for social agitation. Ahhh, what a deliriously weird childhood I've only begun to realize

I started in 84 with Tripwire and the comic. When the lined seemed to die off in the 90's I figured it was gone for good. I am amazed at what is available today for the line.

1982, baby. I got the HAL for Christmas (though I asked for everything on the first booklet) and didn't look back. I went from Star Wars to GI Joe and have never regretted it.
