As much as this collector loves Transformers, my first action figure love was GI Joe. There was just something about the good versus evil theme of the series that always captivated me. From all the various characters and of course the very cool (and large) vehicles and playsets. The A Real American Hero line still goes down as one of the best line in the action figure category.
