Angry Birds Transformers Game and Telepods Set To Debut Soon

If the prospect of trudging through yet another Angry Birds game doesn’t utterly exhaust you, Rovio’s announcement today might brighten your day. Angry Birds Transformers, the fruit of a cross-licensing agreement between Rovio and Hasbro, will bring iconic characters from the Transformers universe to life across mobile platforms. 

The announcement, surely timed to coincide with the release of the film Transformers: Age of Extinction, gave precious little detail about the game, but did mention that Telepods featuring Angry Birds Transformers characters will go on sale later this year. Shelling out money for those figures will grant your in-game characters unique powers, of course.

The Telepods are set for release in September, although specific dates were conspicuously absent from the press release. My guess? We’ll hear more as we approach the end of summer.

    I’m done with Rovio. I was really psyched for Angry Birds Go! but the IAPs totally ruined the game for me.

    I can’t imagine the IAPs will be any better or different in this new game.

    Motorcycle is most likely wrekgar. Flying pig starscream. Big pig DEVASTATOR! Prepare for extermination!

    I wonder if Angry Birds Marvel is next

  • Raven

    What’s next? Angry Birds: My Little Pony? Because, my daughter would love that.

    As much as I loved Transformers growing up, there is no way I am going to buy this game because of the “Telepods”. It sounds like their attempt to capitalize on the Skylanders concept and I have already banned that from our house as well as Disney Infinity.

    I think there’s more than meets the eye to this story.

      I see the obvious Optimus, Bumblebee and Starscream characters above but who are the other two supposed to represent? The big piggy looks like Scorponok more than any form of Megatron but who on earth is the Toucan?

        The only motorcycle I remember was arcee, but she was pink… And sideways the decepticon… But he was also pink

        • hkklife

          Afterburner, one of the Technobots was a futuristic orange-red motorcycle but he had no green so the color scheme here suggests Hoist or another character entirely….I guess we will find out soon enough.

        The pig looks like a mixture between galvatron and the different versions of live action Megatron.

    No… just no.
