First in line of the 2017 top 10 Transformers toys is Generations Titans Return Titan Class Fortress Maximus.

Standing 2-feet tall in robot mode, Fortress Maximus is a robo-dude and battle station command center in one. I would actually consider this setup a three-in-one, because aside from Maximus, it comes with mini-figures of Titan Master Emissary and Cerebros.

Robots in Disguise Power Surge Optimus Prime and Aerobolt arrives next among the ten best Transformers toys for 2017 and into 2017.

Optimus Prime is one of the most popular Transformers because he’s the leader… and he’s simply cool. This figure, powered with batteries, shifts from a weaponized Optimus to an armored semi-truck. Includes robotic sounds and phrases.

Next up on the list – Playskool Heroes Transformers Rescue Bots Griffin Rock Firehouse Headquarters.

The only toy on the list that is not a character in itself – — for some kiddos, it’s even better. It includes a tower that rotates, launches missiles and in general provides rescue missions – humans and Transformers working together as powerful teams. Great toy for younger Transformers (or Rescue Bots) fans.

Another top addition to kids’ Transformers toys for 2017 is Generations Combiner Wars Computron.

In all of my time of writing about Transformers, I have definitely realized how elaborate and detailed some of these robots can be. For example, the Computron Pack combines 6 Technobots into one massive, snap-together warrior.

Lovin’ the collector card!

2017’s final addition to the top ten Transformers toys is Generations Combiner Wars Megatron.

Finally, a villain for your kiddo’s Transformers collection! Megatron has an awesome backstory. One where he was the mightiest, noblest Autobot until corruption turned his mechanical heart black. Since then, he leads the Decepticons with cruel endeavor and fierce attack. This figurine converts from robotic, weaponized mode to tank mode.
