Top 10 Best Transformer Toys 2017
Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Leader Class Grimlock Figure
First of all, we have the leader of the Dinobots, Grimlock. To be more specific this particular Grimlock is the Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Leader Class Grimlock Figure. Which is based on the last Transformers movie, Age Of Extinction.
Grimlock was seen as one of the best things about this movie and it easy to see why. Not only is he a robot, he also is a huge t-Rex dinosaur. There is not a kid on the planet who would not think this is super cool.
This Grimlock is a little tricky to transform, so he is aimed at kids aged 8 and over. It is said there are 18 different movements required to transform him from heroic robot to metal eating dinosaur.
If you do not know much about Transformers and want to get a child a great Transformers gift, you really cannot go wrong with this Grimlock.
Transformers Age of Extinction Mega 1-Step Bumblebee Figure
Next up we have Transformers Age of Extinction Mega 1-Step Bumblebee Figure which again is from the last Transformers movie, Age Of Extinction. The live action Transformers movies really did thrust Bumblebee into the limelight.
Most specifically, younger children really like Bumblebee and this Transformer is aimed at kids who are about 5. This is a very cool looking Transformer and one of the best things about it is how easy it transforms. It is just a couple of steps to transform him from robot to really cool Camaro sports car.
These kind of Transformers are ideal for children who are just getting into transformers as they are so simple to transform.
Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Deluxe Class Autobot Drift Figure
Here we have Drift who is a really cool Transformer who is like a samurai that can also transform into a really smart looking sports car.
The Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Drift Figure is part of the smaller Transformers figure line and this does mean that he can be purchased for a little cheaper than some of the larger Transformers.
What makes this Drift figure one of the best Transformers toys is just how well they have captured his likeness from the Age Of Extinction movie.
While this is a smaller Transformer it is worth noting that this is for children aged 8 and over as there are 16 steps to a transformation. But figuring out how to transform a Transformer is a huge part of the fun!
Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Voyager Class Autobot Hound Figure
The Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Voyager Class Autobot Hound Figure is one really awesome looking Transformer. Hound is a classic Transformer character who was given a really awesome facelift for the Age Of Extinction movie.
This is a larger Transformer figure and Hound can go from military inspired robot to really rough and tough combat vehicle in 14 steps. Hound also has some fantastic accessories. This guy is all about fire power so he comes with a good selection of guns.
One of the things that makes this such a great gift for a Transformers fan is that chances are they will already have all of the big names like Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Megatron. So if you want to get them a really cool surprise then we feel this Hound figure would be perfect.
Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Voyager Class Sky Lynx
The Combiner Wars series of figures have been a huge hit with Transformers fans and this Transformers Generations Combiner Wars Voyager Class Sky Lynx figure is one of the most popular. Sky Lynx is really cool in that it goes from a dinosaur/dragon into a really smart looking fighter jet.
On its own this is a really awesome figure. But the real appeal of the Combiner Wars line is that each Transformer in a series can combine with another to make a huge Transformer. In the case of Sky Lynx when connected to the other Transformers in this series, he forms Sky Reign!
Sky Lynx is aimed at kids who are aged 8 and older. While we think this is a fantastic Transformers figure on its own. We think it would make for an even better gift if the child you are buying it for has a couple other Combiner Wars figures.
TRANSFORMERS Generations Combiner Wars – MEGATRON Figure
Here we have one of the more, let’s just say upmarket and collectable Transformers on this list. The TRANSFORMERS Generations Combiner Wars – MEGATRON Figure is a great representation of the leader of the Decepticons, Megatron!
Megatron is one of the most iconic bad guys of all time. This awesome figure transformes from Megatron to battle tank in 15 steps and is aimed at kids aged 8 and over. The metallic design of this Megatron figure looks pretty spectacular. Making it not only the kind of thing that a child would love to play with. But it would also be great sitting on a shelf as a collector piece.
The Transformers Megatron figure comes with all the accessories that Megatron needs to take down Optimus Prime, Ultra Magnus and the rest of the Autobots.
As this is kind of a collector piece, this figure also comes with an exclusive collector’s card.
Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Leader Class Optimus Prime Figure – Best Transformers Toys
Next on our list of best Transformers toys is Optimus Prime. You really cannot have a list of amazing Transformers toys without at least one Optimus Prime figure on it! Well here is he is the leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime. The Transformers Optimus Prime Figure was taken from the Age Of Extinction movie so it is the modern looking Optimus Prime.
This is actually quite a high end Optimus Prime so if a child already has one of the smaller Optimus Prime figures this would be an amazing upgrade. This does require 18 steps to transform so it is aimed at kids 8 and up.
Changing Optimus Prime from leader of the Autobots to powerful red and blue truck is a lot of fun. This Optimus Prime figure also comes with a shield and a sword to take down any Decepticons that get in his way.
Transformers Rescue Bots Medix The Doc-Bot Action Figure by Playskool Heroes
Next in line on our best Transformers toys list are the Rescue Bots. The Rescue Bots is an adorable line of Transformers figures that also have a TV show that little kids love. Here we have Transformers Rescue Bots Medix The Doc-Bot.
Medix is the guy who looks after Bumblebee, Heat Wave and all the rest of the Rescue Bots. He goes from chief medical officer to EMT truck in just a few simple steps.
This line of Transformers figures is actually aimed at kids 3 and up so it is very easy to transform. At the same time though, these Rescue Bots figures teach your child the basics they need to know for when they eventually get a more elaborate Transformers figure.
In all this is just a really cool figure, that is also low in price. Rescue bot Medix is part of the Playskool Heroes line and built to take a real beating as well.
Transformers Rescue Bots Blades The Copter-Bot Action Figure by Playskool Heroes
Here we have another Rescue Bots figure in Transformers Rescue Bots Blades The Copter-Bot Action Figure by Playskool Heroes. As we just said before the Rescue Bots are aimed at younger children and Blades here is no different.
Kids aged 3 and up will have a lot of fun and a stress free time transforming Blades from robot to helicopter in just a couple of simple steps.
What makes this figure special though is that it is part of the Energize line of Rescue Bots figures. What this means is that the figure has some really cool parts that are made with clear plastic. But this is not normal clear plastic. This is so that the Rescue Bots have more power to save the day and stop the bad guys.
If you have a younger child who is showing an interest in Transformers. This would be a great place to start their collection.
RC Transformation Robot Car by SainSmart Jr
You may wonder why the RC Transformation Robot Car by SainSmart Jr is on a list of the best Transformers toys as it is not an official Transformer. But if you have a child who loves the Transformers then they will have a lot of fun with this.
What we have here is a RC car, but this is no normal RC car as it can actually transform into a cool robot with a touch of a button on the remote control .
This is not for really young children, but kids aged 8 and up will be able to have fun with this. The transformation robot car can do super 360 spins, transform and of course go really fast!
While not a Transformers figure, kids who love robots and cars will have a lot of fun with this.
