The Best Transformers Toys for Kids and Collectors - 2015-2016

Image credit:
Transformers have been around for quite some time, but the last few years have launched these ever-changing robotic aliens into hyper-drive where popularity is concerned. New fans are discovering the awesomeness of the most recent Transformers every day, while collectors have known about the coolness of these knickknacks for years.

2015 has seen the release of a few new Transformers toys—some great for the purpose of collecting and others perfect for kiddos of almost all ages.

The following three among the best Transformers toys have been handpicked by yours truly to cover the spectrum between youngsters and hardcore action figure collectors. Plus, these three are from the Age of Extinction collection—which happens to be my personal favorite from the Transformers series.  =)


Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Deluxe Class Bumblebee

There have been numerous polls performed to determine who the most popular Transformers character is, and it has always been a draw between Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. At least it was always a draw until Age of Extinction—then Bumblebee reigned supreme.

This version of Bumblebee is decked out in his after-the-revamp transformation from regular sports car to 2015 Camaro. He transforms in a few clicks, but the quality of this figurine makes him a top-shelf must-have for collectors and kiddos alike.


Transformers Age of Extinction Optimus Prime One Step Changer

Toddlers are Transformers fanatics, too! This one is perfect for the younger crowds, as Optimus Prime changes in a single shift from his robotic form into his truck form. There is an entire collection of One Step Changer Transformers, and Optimus Prime carves a path as their leader.

What makes this great for younger kids is the chunkier elements that are easier to grasp and transform with minimal effort.


Transformers Age of Extinction Generations Deluxe Class Snarl

I absolutely loved the dinosaurs in Age of Extinction and Snarl is a definite favorite of mine. He looks super-cool in his dinosaur mode, which is a neon green Stegosaurus with a battle-tough hide and spikes from head to powerful tail. Then, in under 15 shifts, Snarl changes into a combat-ready robot—prepared to defend the Transformers and their human friends with his signature sword and armored, spiky shoulders.

Of course, there are other Age of Extinction dinosaurs floating around on the retail circuit, but Snarl has ranked as a favorite of kids and collectors alike. Those who snag the set can reenact their own scenes from the epic 2014 movie.
