Operation: The Angry Birds Transformers let fly!

The walls of TFNation Towers are shaking as we play host to our most explosive new guests yet, the Angry Birds Transformers! Exient, the award winning studio that develops and transmits the mobile game for Rovio, is motoring into TFNation 2016, for their first UK Transformers convention.

Since its launch in September 2014, Angry Birds Transformers has gone from strength to strength, averaging half a million daily active users, regular updates, 40 characters and over 150 accessories (our favourite is Kremzeek) and there seems no sign of stopping. It's continued success has brought high praise from Hasbro and Rovio and the Exient team justifiably proud of their creation.

Ryan and the team will be displaying concept and designs from the series, discussing the development of the game, its ever-growing cast of characters and seeking feedback from both current and future gamers on the mobile app. In return, attendees can expect some exclusive goodies, including character unlocks for the game! All game development disciplines will be accounted for:
* Stuart Maine and Greg Law - Design
* James Back - Producer
* Ryan Astley - Art
* Emyr Jenkins and Jordan Thompson - Code
* Athanasios Skarlatos - Analyst
* Deborah Oyeyinka - Social Media

Exient will be in attendance on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st August 2016. This is not only a great opportunity for fans of the game to speak to the driving force behind its development, but will appeal to anyone interested in game design, animation and multimedia. The team aren’t just with us as developers, they are also here as fans of the franchise from G1 to the modern comic incarnations, and we hope our attendees give them the warmest of welcomes!

Further transmissions to follow.

Courtesy of fellow Seibertronian and Twincast Podcast member megatronus, we have some images of the Transformers The Last Knight billboard that went up earlier this afternoon in Times Square. This billboard of the upcoming film from Paramount, features Optimus Prime, brandishing his sword, and facing off against 3 monstrous looking creatures. A tattered Decepticon flag is in the background along with some various structures or towers. The billboard is located at 1196 6th Ave (cross street is 47th St) in midtown Manhattan, close to Times Square. Share your thoughts about this billboard and Transformers 5 The Last Knight on our Energon Pub forums.

Seibertronians, the San Diego Comic Con prep has started! It seems that, ahead of SDCC, Hasbro has activated a new Instagram account specifically for Hasbro Pulse, the online blog that caters to Transformers, My Little Pony, G.I. Joe, and other popular Hasbro Properties. Moving forward, this should become a good source for product reveals and other news, especially at times like this, during San Diego Comic Con.

All that seems to be on the account now, however, are some behind-the-scenes shots of the Star Wars Celebration exclusive Kylo Ren Black Series Figure, but it's only a matter of time before they post something TF related.

And, as always, your best source for Transformers news from SDCC and elsewhere is here, on Seibertron.com

The Titans Return toys have arrived, and the Seibertron.com Twincast/Podcast also returns for episode 149 with host Scotty P, along with Rotorstorm, RodimusConvoy13, and Seibertron. If you're in the mood for toys, this is your episode, with an entire show dedicated to Titans Return as well as a few other recent Transformers Generations releases from around the world.

Episode #149 “Titans Arrive“ is available directly and in our RSS Feed, and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

Oh, and if you're looking for non-toy talk, check out Episode 150 for an entire episode devoted to Sins of the Wreckers!

With a new toyline upon us, we take stock of all the in-hand impressions we can give you on each of the toys that one or more cast members has in their possession. You can follow along as we go from toy to toy using the Titans Return toy galleries, which are being updated almost daily with comprehensive photos of all the new toys.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
Prepare to hear about this guy. A lot about this guy.


After taking time for the Voyagers we chat it up about the deluxes from the first wave: Scourge, Hardhead, Skullsmasher, and Blurr. What car mode has zoomed into our hearts? Is it a boat or a spacecraft? Tune in for answers to some of this, and you may even figure out a way to make your Skullcruncher a bit more stable when standing.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
Squeezecruncher, perhaps?


Bases are in this year, right? The Leader Class Powermaster Optimus Primeand wave mate Blaster prepare to host all the little bots as they build their Cybertronian cities. Is this play pattern something you like to indulge in, or are these gimmicks too obtrusive for you? Let us know what you think in the thread, and post pictures of your best base modes too!

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
If we actually took anyone's money for this show, we'd just use it to turn our recording areas into large replicas of this.


The Titan Masters get their due time as well, with Nightbeat, Loudmouth, and more driving their tiny tanks all around the conversation. Or is it a floating tank?

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
Supplemental, complementary, or is that too much math?


Just in time for this edition of the show, Fortress Maximus arrives at Seibertron HQ. Experience a live unboxing (sort of), first impressions, and even some serious armature. You know, to attach his arm. Like Metroplex, only more fortress-y.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
Drive me closer!


Combiner Wars isn't totally over, and a quick time out from the Titans is in order as we look at some of that line's later releases including the recently released Unite Warriors Bruticus set. This one features new mold Blast-Off, plus some other enhanced deco editions of the Combaticons and other minor retools such as Vortex's blades. Find out if we recommend this set, or if it's just a swindle.

With apologies to Casey Kasem


There's even a bit of the Transformers Subscription Service lending a limb, and a new matrix, to this episode. Windsweeper and the Matrix of Malice have arrived in mailboxes. With a slick new deco, we have plenty to say about this latest entry from the Transformers Collectors' Club, and even convene the most pointless debate ever about which Matrix mold it uses.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #149 "Titans Arrive"
MP-10 to put it in not included.


After talking still more about Titans Return, and then more about it, and then more about Galvatron again (and again), we at last move on to finish the episode out with some bragging rights.

Buyer's market


Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!

Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!

Got a question for the Twincast? We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously! Leave a question in the Ask the Twincast thread and, if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.
