The Angry Birds Transformer Toys were found at Canadian retail, at the Target in downtown Montreal (Alexis Nihon), Quebec. Each toy is 12.99 cdn $. These toys are based on the upcoming mobile game announced earlier this year, which merges both franchises. The trailer can be found here.

If anyone is curious to find them, they were located in the board game section due to their association with Jenga.

While not directly Transformers related, the following news concerns Rovio, the company behind Angry Birds and the recently released Angry Birds Transformers multimedia (game; comics and toys hitting soon). According to their CEO Mikael Hed, writing on the Rovio blog, the company is being reshaped, though not for negative financial reasons - leading to the loss of 130 jobs. Read more here and below.

We work in businesses that are so fast moving that the only constant is change. At Rovio we have always been innovative and forward-looking, and to succeed we need to be the best at adapting to change.

We are an entrepreneurial company and have been exploring multiple areas. We have been building our team on assumptions of faster growth than have materialized. As a result, we announced today that we plan to simplify our organization around our three key businesses with the highest growth potential: games, media, and consumer products. Unfortunately, we also need to consider possible employee reductions of a maximum of 130 people in Finland (approximately 16% of workforce).

It is never easy to consider changes like this, but it is better to do them sooner rather than later, when we are in a good place to reignite growth.

At Rovio we live to delight our fans. This year we have more launches and news than ever. As we consider these painful measures, we keep our eye on always delighting our fans with products they love.

Transformers: Legends Game Event - Cosmic Rust is now live.

As MEGATRON, SOUNDWAVE, and the DECEPTICONS travel towards Cybertron, they find a planet with a gigantic AUTOBOT symbol that is visible from space. Upon closer inspection, they discover that the entire population has been wiped out, leaving behind only a powerful weapon, the Lightning Bug.

MEGATRON takes the Lightning Bug, intending to use it on the AUTOBOTS, unaware of the creeping doom that it has inflicted him and his troops. He soon discovers the cosmic rust, and steals the Corrostop compound that the AUTOBOTS had developed in order to cure it. Now immune to the infection, he decides to use it upon the hated AUTOBOTS.

The AUTOBOTS, now inflicted and without their own supply of Corrostop, turn to their Matter Replicator for a solution. Unfortunately, the only remaining Corrostop is on the Statue of Liberty, which was used for the original tests, and it is now blockaded by DRAG STRIP, LASERBEAK and the other DECEPTICONS.

Will BEACHCOMBER and AUTOBOT GEARS be able to get past the DECEPTICON blockades and reach the Statue of Liberty in time for the AUTOBOTS to replicate the Corrostop? Or will the fate of the AUTOBOTS to be to rust into nothingness? Find out on TRANSFORMERS: LEGENDS – “COSMIC RUST”!

Something a little different from Transformers: Universe, the MOBA game by Jagex - an interview with the ears behind the music! Check out below some extracts from this interview with James Hannigan, who also scored the videogames for Lord Of The Rings, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs and Command And Conquer among others, on Examiner.com.

Let’s first talk about your recent work on the new “Transformers Universe” game. What inspired you to get involved with the project? What has impressed you most about working on this game?

JH: I enjoyed Transformers as a child and I’m just one of those people who finds it difficult not to get excited by large, warring robots. I particularly like how they’re partially organic as well and have such distinctive personalities. Basically, I’m a sucker for the mythic theme of ‘good vs. evil’; not to mention being a sci-fi and fantasy buff in general.

[...]

Did you also take some inspiration from the music that composers such as Steve Jablonsky and Brian Tyler wrote for the films and animated television series that would help make your score fit in the Transformers Universe musically?

JH: Not specifically, although I love the work of those composers. I was merely trying to, on one level, create music that fit into the wider world of Transformers (which is already very varied across film and television over decades now) but with a new dimension as well. Some of the music of Transformers Universe is pretty harsh, grinding and mechanical, yet at other times it can be quite minimal and ethereal. The team at Jagex have also been working on music, and their output is also varied, a reflection perhaps of the fact that the Transformers themselves have wildly different personalities.

[...]

What were the recording sessions like?

JH: Very nice and we recorded the Philharmonia at Abbey Road Studios in London for some of the music. It is always a humbling and breathtaking experience to have your music performed by a full orchestra and the level of musicianship among players in London is truly outstanding.

Will a soundtrack album be released?

JH: Very possibly, but I have no details.

Jagex has fully revealed the two newest additions to the Transformers Universe MMO game. Up first is Outsider who is an Autobot and has a very retro alt mode and then we got the infectiously named Pandemic on the Decepticon side.

The first warrior on the scene is Autobot Outsider. Beaming in and out of battle in the blink of an eye, Outsider utilizes unique teleport abilities to dodge bullets with his tactical ingenuity. Don’t let his 60’s style fool you, this Autobot isn’t as peaceful as he looks.
