I'd say it was Zartan and his Swamp Skier, but in the Palitoy 'red, white & blue "Action Force" box before I eve knew what 'GI JOE' was.
For the Hasbro era it was Bazooka, Eel, Footloose and Crimson Guard all on their original UK release

I still make my mother buy them for me! I tell her to bring me joes or I threaten her with another savage beating and tell her I will never talk to her again.

The first Joe that I ever bought for myself was a Stormshadow v1 figure in 1985 from a Hills department store. The first Joes that I ever received, were a birthday present in 1983. I got Duke, Snake Eyes v1.5, and Stalker v1.5. I got them because my Grandma couldn't find the Star Wars figures I was looking for. I was hooked ever since.

I can remember the first Joes I ever received (Short-Fuse and Breaker in March 1982... but I had to think about the first I actually BOUGHT. I believe it was Snake-Eyes, around September 1982! On sale at the usually pricey store "Toys by Roy" at our local mall.
Strangely enough, I put off buying him because I had felt he was the crappiest figure of the line. I thought Hasbro was being lazy by making him ALL black, with no color. I think I had picked up the comic books that same month and found out: "Hokey smoke, Snake-Eyes is a BMF! Gotta' get his figure!"

Well, back in 1982 I was 11. I had my own money and had just found out about Joes so I asked my Dad to take me to TRU. I came home with Flash and the VAMP with Clutch (straight arms). I loved them. I snagged a few more before asking for a bunch for Christmas (and getting 90-95% of what I asked for). I collected heavily until '87/'88 (never got the big ones like the '83 HQ nor the Flagg or Defiant) and then trickled down to a few until I got my last fig in 1993... Snake Eyes (v5) from Ninja Force (the black one with light blue accents and the Ninja action! I picked up a few in trade a few years ago to start re-collecting again.
As for 25th, I traded for a few starters of those back in the summer but actually bought my first one recently... Mutt and Junkyard.
