The final year of the original cell animated cartoon series (which consisted of a measily 3 episodes!) brought to life some of the best Transformers toys of all time.  This page, dedicated to the Transformers of 1987 includes the Headmasters, Targetmasters, and two of the last 'standard' style combiner teams, the Terrorcons & Technobots as well as several others.  You can also learn about arguably, the most highly sought after TF by collectors, the enormous, unique and breath-taking: Fortress Maximus, a toy which towers ~2 feet tall!
