One Shall Stand, One Shall Fall – It’s Angry Birds: Transformers

Following on from the successful Angry Birds: Star Wars mash up, the next franchise to get feathered are those every popular robots in disguise, the Transformers.

The mobile game leaked out three months ago and now Rovio have officially confirmed the title. Although no details of the title have been given it appears the game will be based on Angry Birds Go!, the kart racing title, rather than original foul flinging escapades.

“We’re really excited to combine the iconic Transformers universe with the quirky world of Angry Birds,” said Blanca Juti, Chief Marketing Officer of Rovio. “This mash-up is going to appeal to both those who grew up with the brand in the 80’s, as well as fans of the brand today. People are going to love it!”

As well as the game there will be Telepod toys from Hasbro which feature the transforming birds plus a QR code that can be scanned into the game. Characters rumoured for the game include Soundwave  as the Chef Pig, Bumblebee as the Yellow Bird, Optimus Prime as the red bird and the Moustached pig as Unicron.

  1. Just when you thought Transformers couldn’t go any lower.

  2. So, a cute little game that turned into a license to print all the money, and an 80s cartoon that was basically an advert for some toys (and lead to some pretty unforgivable crimes against cinema).

    This is dangerous. It could reach critical mass and everything, forever, will now have to be Angry Transformerbirds. I suspect shockwaves will ripple back through time and we’ll wake up one morning to find that the universe has always consisted entirely of Angry Transformerbirds.

    Well done. They’ve ruined everything and made the past almost 14 billion years absolutely pointless. How do they sleep at night? (Well, on a massive bed made out of money, probably)

    • If you’re in the UK, you’ll be aware of a newspaper called ‘The Sun’. Once you realised shit like that (and the former News of the World) was the best selling tat in the tabloid newspaper world, you pretty much can forgive anything else. :-)

      • I like to try and convince myself that while The Sun might be the best selling “newspaper”, the vast majority of people don’t buy it. Otherwise, it starts a chain of events that can only end in the words “And that’s when I shot them all, your honour”.

      • Welcome to Angry Transformer Birds. Showing (as the prosecution’s main evidence) in a court near you!

      • I’m going to slowly reach for my mouse, move the cursor & click on the browser’s ‘back’ button… Then slowly wheel my chair back and walk away from my desk just like nothing happened… & relax.

  3. I’m not sure if this lowers my opinion of Transformers further, or lowers my opinion of Angry Birds further.

    Both are pretty crap.

    • Why not compromise and say it lowers your opinion of humanity in general? Douglas Adams was right. We obviously made a big mistake coming down from the trees. Look where it’s got us? Angry Fucking Transformerbirds!!

    • *hovers over the ban button*

      • Tuffcub’s got a Jetpack!!!

      • & he’s escaping the Naughty Step!

  4. Will this be coming to the PS4 though?

    And if so, how much will it cost? I don’t think the £32.99 they’re charging for Angry Birds Star Wars is quite enough. I think they could easily charge £49.99 and someone will still buy it.

    • I was thinking the same thing, must only be a matter of time before Activision port it over.

      • I can’t wait. I hope it has lots of DLC. And hats you can buy that do absolutely nothing except relieve you of £3.99.

  5. Are we allowed to use profanity on TSA? Because if not, I’m at a loss for words.

  6. WTF?!
