The oldest i remember was a G1 Ultra Magnus. The car used to transform into a small white Prime and the trailer into a big Ultra Magnus. I loved that toy, wish i still had it.

I had a Zorro puppet (does it need to have legs to be an action figure ?)

Then I had tons of Marx army men - Americans (green), Germans (gray), Japanese (tan) and Russians (dark blue).

The other was the Geronimo 12 inch Indian figure by Marx.

The first figure I can recall getting is opening a boxed Mego Robin. Must be one of the reasons why he is still one of my favorite characters!

1st action figure: 12" Boba Fett or Shogun Warrior Mazinga Z.

1st action jet: G.I. Joe X-14 Skystriker

1st action HQ: G.I. Joe Headquarter

1st action spaceship: Millennium Falcon

1st action castle: Castle Greyskull

What I was most into growing up in the 70s and 80s was Masters of the Universe and G.I. Joe.

Yes, I was spoiled. Now I have to pay bills and find time and money to play with and pay for my toys.
