I really love the Transformers names except for Optimus Red. I mean, why couldn't he be named Birdimus Prime. It's a lot more logical. Just sayin'.

True dat. Something like...yeah, I got nothing. It's still kinda dumb.

I'll probably still get the game.

ummm given that Optimus is the leader, and in Angry Birds the leader of the birds is called "Red" it's perfectly logical.

He can be called Redimus Prime or it's just that

"Optimus" is more synonymous with Transformers than "Prime"

Besides, when Angry Birds Transformers 2 comes out they can introduce a Rodimus Prime looking bird called Redimus.

Hilariously enough, "Starsqueal" is the name I had in mind for a fanmade character- Starscream's little sister to be exact.

An update for the Angry Birds Transformers new venture by Hasbro, and it's toys! But not only is it toys -- they transform! Check out below a couple of mirrored images from the Toys'R'Us website, with the Optimus Prime Bird Race Set ($29.99) and Energon Racers Pack ($19.99), both shipping in October. The listing also show the two redesigned faction symbols for the Autobirds and Deceptihogs.

Build - destroy - win! The Angry Birds Transformers toys put you in charge of your own bird-on-pig battles. And what could be better than high-flying birds and villainous pigs re-imagined as Transformers characters? Use the launchers to send your bird and pig racing down the 35-inch raceway! The loser crashes while the winner gets to change the Optimus Prime bird into a robot! It's easy to take your games online with the Telepods base, which lets you teleport your bird and pig into the Angry Birds Transformers app. Just put one of them on the base and put the base on your device (sold separately) and scan it into the app. Now you can play as that converting pig or bird! It's going to be total destruction in the battle between your Angry Birds Transformers bird and pig!

I wish they didn't look like Bayformers.

Not just because I hated the latest film, but also because G1 is just way easier to adapt into Angry Birds's cartoonish aesthetic.

So they are basically mutated Bot Shot toys.

The Grimlock and Soundwave ones are G1-based.

And the Starscream one, I think.

I guess this MAY be more successful than bot-shots...but Angry Birds is dumb. It's an app game, but if you followed the Star Wars cross-over those toys were just jenga with balls and they didn't seem to sell.

But what do I know?
Re: Angry Birds Transformers Character Names Revealed (1592409)

At least they transform, even if all of them transform the same way. I might pick up one of these at some point.

Pig sacrifice, Autobots and Decepticons fighting together (I mean, Astrotrain dumping out Optimus, who then calls what looks to be Quake to help him defeat a giant robot...?), mass hysteria!

So what is this game's gameplay even supposed to be, anyway? Skylanders style, or something? Because I think the Angry Birds theme has strayed a bit too far away from what it was originally intended if that is the case.

I think it's adorably awesome. I liked the original version of Angry Birds, and this trailer is enticing me. Wasn't expecting what looks to be a co-op mode with the Autobirds and the Deceptihogs.

Oh my goodness, they NEED to make a cartoon with that animation! If only TF: Prime had looked as bright, colorful, and FUN! Image

Though, I am very confused about the end. I don't play Angry Birds, but I thought that the pigs were the bad guys. So why did Megahog come to help out Optimus Red like they were best buddies or something? :???:
Re: Angry Birds Transformers Character Names Revealed (1593189)
Posted by EunuchRon on July 24th, 2014 @ 1:42pm CDT
Well, Megatron... er, Megahog.... the pig tank, did do a "too slow" hand shake fake and laughed at Optibird or whatever he's called, so it's not totally friendly? Not sure why they'd be cooperating after Birdimus just offed a few pigcopters, but hey, it's $$$ for Hasbro and Rovio I guess? Totally does look like Skylanders with birds and pigs.

Telepods.

Basically when you buy the figures they have a little QR code on the bottom of them, put them on the Telepod then place that on your phone/tablet and it scans the QR code and "teleports" the figure into the game.

Is it so hard to believe that someone could find it confusing that a guy who's supposed to be a Megatron analogue was willing to come to the rescue of a guy who's suppose to be an Optimus Prime analogue, for seemingly no other reason than that the Optimus bird was in trouble and needed his help?

Stuck on a level in Angry Birds? Telepod a character in to help you. It doesn't matter if it's a good guy or bad guy. That's how Telepods work.

The concept of good vs evil is cast aside in favour of generating revenue.

Now if that's not a good enough answer for you then I doubt anyone could answer it any better.

If they hadn't includeed the clip about putting a figure on an Ipad, I can understand why the bad guy helping the good guy would be confusing, but they show us scanning the figure in, so it in effect becomes no different than the way the Lego Star Wars series could allow you to customize and play as alternate characters. Teh Megatron you see in the end is NOT the Megatron of the game, its a seperate, clone character of Megatron. its the Megatron of the toy. In all likelyhood, its possible to see a Megatron vs. Megatron matchup in this way.

Does this answer your question, Sabr? If not, I don't think we're understanding the question?

Yeah, I think I get the gist of it. I don't play Angry Birds, so seeing Megs helping Optimus like a friendly rival was weird to see.

the telepod thing is a joke...first off if you use any kind of protective case on your phone or tablet, you gotta remove it as it can't read it properly and the pod needs to be perfectly flush to the camera. that wouldn't be too big an issue if the character you "scanned in" actually stayed in your game but nope...soon as you turn off the game, you gotta re-scan it if you want it back in there next time you play.

that said, i am curious to see how the gameplay of this one will be like. and there will likely be a bunch of toys released so i'd very much get their Starscream in some form. :P

Seems like a memory-conservation issue? That would be a nice feature though.

Sunbow styled trailer for Angry Birds Transformers:


Birds disguised as robots in disguise!

The mysterious EggSpark has crashed onto Piggy Island, transformerizing everything in its path! Even the eggs have become robots, and are running riot across Piggy Island! Can the Autobirds and Deceptihogs put their differences aside and join forces to get those wild EggBots under control? Yeah right…

Angry Birds Transformers rolls out October 15!

They even got Vince DiCola to do the music!
