We’ve previously mentioned the Transformers Battle Masters in our coverage of the UK Toy Fair, and subsequent toy mentions, but we’ve now obtained some good pictures of both packaging and the figures themselves.

Over at the Idle Hands blog, there are pictures of both package designs and each of the Battle Masters available. The Battle Masters can be operated with two game controllers that are interchangeable. There is also an app for iPad/iPhone to complete the battle. The starter pack includes two bots, “The Diesel Destroyer” Optimus Prime and “The Calamity of Humanity” Megatron. Other single pack bots that will be available include Starscream, Prowl, Bumblebee, and Barricade. Battle Masters are set to be available April 2014.

Via - Angry Birds Transformers – Toys Coming, Can A Game Be Far Behind?

The Idle Hands Blog has come up with a copy of the Hasbro line-up for this years Toy Fair. But if you scroll down past the My Little Pony Flip And Whirl Rainbow Dash Pony, down below the Nerf N-Strike Mega Tunderbow… even below the Spidey Kapow Action Plush we get to what might be the big news item:

Angry Birds Transformers!!!

Racers – September
Battle Packs – September
Energon Multi-Pack – September
Bumblebee Blast – September
Telepods Optimus Raceway – September

If we are seeing Angry Birds Transformers in a toy line, its not a far leap to speculate there will be a video game offered up as well. Looks like September should be fun.


Here is the blog post they are referring to - Toy Fair 2014: A Hefty Sampling of Hasbro's Lineup

Never heard of this game before, and now looking forward to ignoring the hell out of it.

Doth Primus approve of the toxic fumes from such burnt offerings?

Even warriors of this low caliber should be recycled with full honors. The amount of plastic they're wasting on these guys with oil prices where they are...ugh.

Is this even a transformer product, or is it some other toy brand that hasbro acquired then slapped TF colors on them?

Aside from Optimus, nothing looks like their name. Heck where's Starscream's cockpit. That could have saved more cost by simply repaint the same mold with different color and call it Metroplex, or Arcee.

ok someone must have got the names mixed up cause most of those look nothing like their namesakes. Either that or these werent originally going to be a transformer product but due to poor testing (or just speculation that these wouldnt sell) they slapped on the TF brand to try and make them sell. Besides optimus the others are pretty must just generic looking robots.

The names should be: "Red and blue bulkhead", "Evil purple bulkhead", "Yellow Bulkhead", "Orange bulkhead"...

Optimus is the only one who looks even remotely like he's supposed to.

I think you hit the nail on the head. Not the name mix-up, but your second suggestion.

You know, thinking about it more, (aside from Optimus) these all look look like their namesakes about as much as the following look like Ironhide:




:P

Sorry, my bad.

For me, the essential things to get right on a transformer are the general color, relative size, and the design of the head. I'll give you that, for the game, they need to be the same size. So they needed to get 2 things right.

Except for Optimus, these are a whole load of fail on those criteria.

Thanks to fellow Seibertron.com user helli0n, we have yet another product coming out of the UK Toy Fair based on the Transformers franchise, and it comes with a little twist. Combine one of the most popular mobile device games with robot, and what do you get? Angry Birds, the Transformers edition. The news itself comes once again from the Idle Hands blog, and can be found here, but check out the release dates of the packs below, and leave your opinion in the Energon Pub!
