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.
"Why?" not "How?"

Because you bought the figure. Is that better? :roll:

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?

Not when it doesn't make sense, hence my original asking.

If you or anyone else doesn't know, then that's fine.

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!

Yay! Just the breath of fresh kiddie-crap they needed to fill up that last tiny sliver of retail space reserved for Generations. Sure, why not absolutely guarantee that 100% instead of only 98% of trips to stores end in crushing disappointment. :BANG_HEAD:

that was very cool, i love how the image even looks old. and using 80's sound effects was a nice touch on top of the Dicola like music.

i await the merchandise with glee, well i just wanna collect the Starscream stuff. :P but i'll of course download the game as i have every version of Angry Birds already so. lol

These are probably going to be in either the Playskool aisle (some of the other Angry Birds merchandise is there IIRC), or the generic "technology" section that stores normally use for Skylanders clones.

He’s brave, powerful, wise and just all-round awesome!

This game is looking more and more appealing. Shame the toys are crappy One-Step Changers, though. If Hasbro made actual Deluxe-scaled versions of these guys, I would buy them all in a heartbeat.

Lockdown pig doesn't look very Lockdown-y to me. Maybe a hook or a face gun would help, I dunno. It doesn't help that he seems to be based on AoE Lockdown, who looked kinda generic to begin with. He'd probably pop better in Animated Lockdown's colors.

I had just assumed this was going to be like Star Wars Angry Birds: just the same old Angry Birds game, but with the Transformers license applied. I had no idea it was totally different gameplay.
