For me, it was the search for Robotech toys. I saw Robotech on the Sci-Fi
channel and during one episode, relized that I had a Invid mecha standing on
my shelf from when I was little, I didn't know it was from Robotech until I
saw Robotech and wanted more toys of that robot. Then, I found someone
selling these robots called Gundam, which I had no idea what Gundam was at
that time. Once I received the Gundam kit, I basically stopped my Robotech
toy search and started buying Gundam kits every chance I got. I never saw the
gundam until last year when I watched Wing. This person that was selling
Gundam was going to record it from his LDs for me to watch, but we never got
around to it. Now, all I have to do is buy it from AnimevVillage.
