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.

Looks like it could be. Pig's wearing what looks like g1 Galvy's helmet, and the truck looks like movie Galvy.

Site owner Seibertron is currently on location in New York, to bring us all news from the NYCC 2014 - but leading up to convention, he dropped by the Times Square Toys'R'Us store and spotted some additional Angry Birds Transformers toys to the ones we reported on from Canada! Check them out below.

I wish my Toysrus were stocked like that.

Well that's the Times Square Toys R Us, of course it's going to look good. There are always tons of tourists going through the place. I doubt you want the prices of the toys in that Toys R Us though. Year of the Horse Optimus Prime was $160 and the deluxes are $20 something. So yeah, really jacked up...

Have you ever been there? It LOOKS great on the surface, but it actually has a worse selection than your average TRU. Unless you're looking for shelfwarmers, which they have in spades. They carry a small (and crappy) selection, but they put 20 of every figure on the shelf so it looks nice.

Don't forget the 30% markup!

At least these transform, which puts them a step above the Hero Mashers and such.

I tire of hearing Americans complain about jacked up prices move to anywhere else in the world and no matter what your dollar value is to ours we pay much more you have nothing to complain about you have the cheapest price for transformers even with 'jacked up' prices

In more official news from Hasbro Transformers over at NYCC 2014, we get a look at Angry Birds Transformers crossover figures and sets, including descriptions of the various products - all mirrored below for your convenience, including the press release! We've seen some of these before, but read on for more.

ANGRY BIRDS TRANSFORMERS TELEPODS 2014 PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS


Autobirds, ‘roll out!’ The epic battle for Piggy Island has begun as two of the world’s largest and most popular entertainment brands join together to create the all-new ANGRY BIRDS TRANSFORMERS franchise. This Fall, the fast-paced, flying adventures of ANGRY BIRDS is combined with the iconic TRANSFORMERS characters to present ANGRY BIRDS TRANSFORMERS TELEPODS, a high-octane digital and physical play experience featuring iconic TRANSFORMERS characters in ANGRY BIRDS form.

When the mysterious Egg Spark lands on Piggy Island, RED BIRD becomes OPTIMUS PRIME Bird, CHUCK (YELLOW BIRD) becomes BUMBLEBEE Bird, and a whole new environment filled with TRANSFORMERS-inspired vehicles, rivalries, and raceways appears. The ANGRY BIRDS TRANSFORMERS lineup and TELEPODS gaming platform, powered by Retoy, offers fans ‘MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE’ with three different ways to play. Launch TELEPODS figures in vehicle mode for awesome races, convert them into robot mode to reenact classic TRANSFORMERS battles, or teleport figures straight into the ANGRY BIRDS TRANSFORMERS app from Rovio Entertainment to unlock additional characters and special powers.

The telepods thing is a good idea IMO.Just put a figure on the telepod and (you know this by now)
the character on the telepod will appear in your game.

My seven year old loved Bot Shots, Transformers and Angry Birds so this is a great meeting of the brands.I find it odd that TRU is the only one to pick it up.I guess all the over saturation of Angry Birds GO and Angry Birds Star Wars killed the brand.Oh well at least I know I can find them in one place.

Great! I'm tired of people who don't live in America telling Americans on how to behave. Mind your own business unless you'd like to tell me your country of origin (probably one without manners) so I can make snarky remarks about you.

The Angry Bird toys found earlier in this thread are also found at Target so the line as a whole is not exclusive, just some products.

The ones that actually transform seem to be the exclusives.
