Transformers toys: An adults’ guide to playing with Robots in Disguise

For people of a certain age — you’re probably in your 20s or 30s now — Transformers were a big part of your childhood.

The Robots in Disguise were featured in cartoons, comic books, an animated movie and, of course, tons and tons of toys. Those were some good times.

With the new film “Transformers: Age of Extinction” hitting theaters this weekend, nostalgic feelings might be running pretty strong right now. But, you’re an adult — or at least your bills, responsibilities and job imply that. That doesn’t mean you can’t bring some toys into your life. They’re, you know, room decor or stress relievers — whatever you want to tell people is fine. You can even play with them when nobody is watching.

For those longtime fans looking to get back in the game, we spent a night playing with toys to help you make your decision.
