Transformers: The Last Knight was released in 2017, as the fifth film in the live-action film franchise. This time-twisting adventure introduced some impressive lore and history to the universe.
This included older versions of Autobot and Decepticon characters as they would have appeared in different periods.
Amongst these is the popular character Hot Rod, who boasted a much more imposing look during his involvement in World War II.

Shadow Panther is probably one of the coolest Transformers of recent years. His jet-black design, complemented with silver accents across the body, is striking and rather imposing and threatening.
Unlike many Transformers toys, this one can transform into a fully fledged animal. Shadow Panther, true to his name, can transform into a dark black panther to quickly traverse vast environments at a serious speed.
When in robot form, Shadow Panther can convert his long tail into a sharp battle axe, to cut down the opposing forces.
The king of all dinosaurs. The mighty and ferocious T-Rex. It would be foolish to not create a Transformer that can take the form of a T-Rex!
In either robot or beast form, this figure has a seriously scary look. As a T-Rex, he features a skeletal body, and a series of sharp teeth and claws to tear apart his prey.
In human form, he features a ghastly alien face, and sharp clawed fingers. The brown-hue of the figure’d body suggests a sense of age, to make this character appear like even more of a battle-hardened warrior.
“Horrifying” would be the most apt descriptor of Blackarachnia, one member of the mighty Maximal race. Boasting an impressive ten legs, and inspired by a terrifying spider, this is one character you definitely wouldn’t want to face in direct combat.
If you want to build a Transformer army with serious combat capability, you need to add Blackarachnia to your team! She can easily transform into a spider, to reach difficult areas of the battlefield, and to strike fear into the enemy with just a glance.
When in robot form, she has a slender and nimble frame, which makes her very adept at hand-to-hand combat. (Maybe thanks to the advantage of having eight additional legs.
With a name like Warpath, there is perhaps no character better equipped to join the war for Cybertron. Even just looking at him, you know that he can take some serious hits, and knows how to do some immense damage on the battlefield.
Just take a look at his feet. They are both tanks, complete with treads. This makes him perfect for rolling over the opposition and conquering anywhere he goes.
When put into vehicle form, he takes on the form of a mighty tank, with a functioning cannon, to shoot high-velocity projectiles across the battlefield.
Skullcruncher has a hell of an appetite for destruction. Able to transform into a massive crocodile at will, his large jaws are always looking for their next snack to chow down upon.
His abrasive and hungry personality are on full display in this transforming figure.
In robot form he boasts an incredibly massive arm gun and a slightly smaller handgun to take down long range opponents. His body features a green and red color scheme.
In beast form, he can crawl across the ground at immense speed, taking down multiple enemies at once with his impressive and sharp-toothed jaws!
It’s time for another version of Hot Rod! This newer version of the iconic character may look slightly different from his original generation one form, but he still has that iconic fiery red body paint that makes him stand out amongst any Transformers collection.
Across his chest are small fire shaped decals that make him appear quick and sharp, and even across his legs are pointed chevron shapes, to exaggerate his speedy personality.
In vehicle form, he even has built-in spoilers, to give him a stylish flair that makes him look even faster than he already is.
He’s ready to ‘Clobber’ his enemies! With a wide and stocky build, Clobber is some serious competition for the Autobot forces.
Add to this his ability to transform into a heavily-destructive tank, and you have yourself one of the most powerful characters amongst the Decepticon forces.
His purple color scheme blends really nicely with the green visor and chest plate that almost seems to make him glow.
Add some real firepower and strength to your Transformers collection by grabbing one of these today!
Considering how scary the creatures can be, it only makes sense that the Decepticons would want a shark-powered member on their side! Sky-Byte is a very powerful and evil enemy of the Autobots that is famous for ripping into his enemies until they yield.
His fast and cocky attitude is perfectly rendered in detail with this figure. You can see the confidence across his face, thanks to the snarky smile and intense red eyes.
If you really wanted to enhance his power and show off his scary shark powers, then you can simply fold him up into his full beast form, to create the ultimate shark weapon.
Tough and immovable is Rhinox, part of the Maximals race of animal-inspired Transformers. These immense warriors can transform into powerful beasts to achieve some serious power.
Rhinox, perhaps unsurprisingly, can transform into the Rhino from which he earns his name. This makes him a powerful and stoic enemy with plenty of firepower at his disposal.
He comes equipped with his famous ‘Gatling Blasters of Doom’, appropriately named for the crazy and unconventional look of the weapons.
When in his robot form, he retains much of his animal characteristics, such as the immensely tough Rhino skin and horned head. This provides him with additional armor to make him next to impossible to beat.
Inferno is depended on as one of the first lines of defence for the Autobots. Able to transform into a fully equipped fire truck, he can quickly dispatch of dangerous fires, to keep his team protected against even the biggest of threats.
Better yet, his incredible vehicle size makes him perfect for transporting the Autobot forces across the battlefield in safety and style!
Inferno also features a fully-armored robot form, complete with a sharp red body and plenty of head protection to keep him safe during even the most intense combat situations.
Red Alert has some seriously cool style. He can transform into a sleek and speedy Chrysler vehicle that is able to quickly tear through the battlefield to assist his team.
This figurine of the popular character features both his speedy car form, and his super-armored robot form.
When in combat mode, the front hood of the Chrysler becomes upper body armor, to protect him from potentially fatal blows in combat. His roof sirens can also be transformed into a suitable weapon, to allow him to take on his enemies one-to-one!
Red Alert is a perfect asset to any Autobot team, so you definitely need one of your own in your collection now!
Everyone loves Starscream. He’s one of the most popular Decepticon characters that the franchise has ever spawned. His biting and sarcastic personality makes him an exciting character to watch, and his bright and characterful colors and design make him exciting to the eye.
He can now brighten up your collection or even brighten up a bookshelf, thanks to this fully detailed figure.
The figure is based on his classic design from the first generation of the franchise, which is a design that many have fond childhood memories of. Make sure to be quick to get one of your own, though, as they are selling extremely quickly!
The ever grumpy and whiny Huffer is dragged (perhaps reluctantly) into the modern age, with this flashy and epic figure.
Huffer’s classic wide build and heavy appearance are rendered here, to give this small figure a large sense of size and weight, as he transforms between his robot and vehicular forms.
In his robot form, he is equipped with a large claw, which makes him perfect for excavating and digging through enemy territory.
You can even equip this figure with pieces from the various Maximals and Predacons figures, to create the ultimate fighting machine!
Brothers Fastlane and Cloudraker can never possibly be separated. If you want a figurine of one, you best bet the other will soon follow! These two always fight together, and have each other's backs no matter what.
They both transform into very different vehicles, with Cloudraker transforming into a powerful jet, and Fastlane transforming into a speedy land car. This means that, as a team, they can conquer both land and sky, to protect their teammates.
This dual pack contains both characters in miniature form. Both can be easily transformed in just a few steps, which makes them perfect for younger children and older fans alike!
Six Gun is one of the best equipped Autobots amongst their forces. He is very much true to his name, with a massive array of weaponry at his disposal, ready to be pulled out at a moment’s notice.
Both a wonderful offensive fighter, and a great defensive force, he is truly one of the most capable soldiers amongst all Autobots!
This toy comes equipped with his large guns and his heavily-armored, but very nimble, body. Once transformed, he can take to the skies in a drone-like form, to take down his enemies from above.
Jolt may not be one of the most recognizable characters from the 2009 film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, but he still cuts an imposing figure!
His shining blue body gives him an almost bug-like appearance, which is complemented by the silver and grey elements deep within. In his vehicular form, Jolt takes the form of a cool blue car that can carve through any road he takes to.
When in his robot form, he also comes equipped with lengthy and sharp swords, to take down multiple enemies in one strike, making him an underrated, but seriously impressive foe for any Autobot!
“Damn, I’m good.” Perhaps his line in the 2009 film Revenge of the Fallen was Sideswipe predicting just how good his figurines would eventually be. Sideswipe is one of the Decepticons strongest agents, and a loyal follower of his leader Megatron.
With a massive array of guns and melee weaponry, he is a beast at both close range, and long range. And when in his vehicle form, he can make short work of all enemies, as he takes the form of a deluxe sports car with an extremely strong engine!
Even in his robot form, he can move at great speed, thanks to the wheels always attached to his feet, allowing him to glide along the ground with the grace of a ballerina!
We believe we’ve saved the best for last. Everyone’s favorite recurring villain, and even the thorn in Optimus Prime’s side: it’s Megatron!
While this seven-inch figure may not be the largest one we’ve shown so far, this famous villain is still imposing and frightening to look at.
Featuring a heavily armored look in both of his forms, he can take some serious hits without ever once yielding to his enemies.
This particular figure is based on his classic ‘80s design, which is great for introducing young fans to his origins, and makes for a perfect keepsake for any long-time fans who want to remember their own childhoods.
