not the one you were first given, although feel free to share. But what was that truly special one? The one you worked to own?
My first was the early 90's snake eyes (the blue and neon red with silver commando mask version) for about 5 bucks at our local stop and shop.
Worked a weekend at a Paintball field to earn it too.
what about you guys?

I don't remember the first one I bought (At least I don't think this was the first one I bought myself) but I do remember buying a Headhunter Stormtrooper from Winn-Dixie a little later I picked up Mace from there too

The first one I bought, and my vey first Joe, was Hawk with the Mobile Missle System (MMS). It was with some cash I'd gotten as a holiday gift. I wanted the actual figure GI Joe (who did not exist at the time) but got Hawk when I figured out GI Joe was a team and he was the leader. I went from there to get all of the original series figures and vehicles. Boy, do I wish I didn't get a bb gun a few years later!

I had 3 weeks worth of allowance saved plus pop bottle money. I got Flash, SE, Scarlett, Stalker, Cobra Officer, Rock N Roll, and the JUMP (I believe that is accurate). Maybe Cobra trooper too...I'm not sure. I got Zap and Breaker next time.
My Dad took me 20 miles out of the way as he was on an insurance job....it was all kismet.

I just start collecting gijoes a year ago because I was so impress by the 25a line. I wander into the toy section in Target and there were a bunch of comic 2 packs just warming the pegs. I picked up the scarlett/hawk pack and it just brought back so much childhood memories. I remember fighting with my brother over snow job and the vehicle he came with, I remember my dad going out to buy me this gijoe plane with helicopter propellers that came with a figure, I don't remember the name of that figure. If anyone can help id that figure that would be cool. This was in the late 80s. The very first gijoe that I can remember that I had was rock and roll, hell yeah! I remember rushing my dad after they came from the store and pulling that toy out of the bag. GOOD MEMORIES......WHATS THIS LIQUID COMING OUT OF MY EYES....?

It wasn't the first one I ever bought, but it was one i bought as a 16 year old coming off his first day on the job of selling door to door of all things, perfumes/cologne (back in 86) the company I worked for was next to a TRU and they paid based on commision of what you sold, so i got 20 bucks..just enough for the bus ticket home, the hot dog from kasper's and a TOMAHAWK w/lifticket, that's right..say it with me Hasbro..T..O..M..A..H..A..W..K!! NOT " Ghost " Hawk! or as we call it in the real world, SKYhawk..right, MAINframe?

The only one I remember buying with my own money was Range Viper. While I'm not sure if it's the first I bought on my own, I know it was the last, until the 25th.

The first one I bought was Night Creeper and Snow Serpent V2 at Kmart. All of the joes i had before this were hand me downs with no acc. You try playing with a B.A.T. with a nub. I had no idea until V2 B.A.T. came out that he had a backpack and arms. But still I never got tired of them.
