Transformers: Power of the Primes is a limited internet animation series that has spawned some seriously cool toys. Because the series sort of does it's own thing, the best Power of the Primes toys are unlike most of the "normal" toys in the Transformers series. Not all toys actually transform, yet many of the ones that do are able to transform between good and evil versions of themselves - complete with changing and unique names for each manifestation of the character.
Sort of like a hybrid mix of the original Generation 1 models with updated alt modes, the Power of the Primes toys are an entirely new reboot of one of pop culture's all-time favorite toy franchises. As each toy comes with its own unique set of accessories and gimmicks, which include tiny Prime Masters toys that are able to be used as weapons and shields, it's no wonder why this toy line is so popular. Of course, all your favorite characters are here, including Optimus Prime, Jazz, and Rodimus, but the line also introduces a host of new ones.
Sure, Power of the Primes toys are all wild and crazy, but it's hard to pick just one as the best of the best. Thankfully, we've compiled a list of the best toys out there, and it's up to you all to vote up your favorite figures.
