Created from six different movie baddies the large-scale Devastator forms the ultimate Transformers villain.

And for the girls, Fur Real Lulu, (again from Hasbro) the life-size, life-like cat that rolls over, licks her paw, moves her head and ears and even blinks her eyes, is the hot favourite.

The list includes a number of trusted favourites such as Hasbro's Monopoly, which has been revamped in a new 3D game, Monopoly City.

"With everything that has happened over the past year, Monopoly City could prove to be the star performer for this Christmas as people vie to take on the developers and beat them at their own game," said Stephen Tymlin, Smyths Toys.
