Angry Birds Transformers Android, the newest iteration for avian video game, was announced in the middle of this month will soon take flight, combining two mega video game and toy franchises.
This Angry Birds Transformers combination is the third mash-up for Angry Birds and the 13th Angry Birds video game within its franchise. The last mash-up Angry Birds had was with Star Wars in 2012. The titles are not exactly brilliant (e.g., Angry Birds Star Wars), but with this weeks opening of Transformers: Age of Extinction, it is great timing.
Rovio, the makers behind the Angry Birds video game and this newest venture, and its Chief Marketing Officer Blanca Juti said, Were really excited to combine the iconic Transformers universe with the quirky world of Angry Birds. This mash-up is going to appeal to those who grew up with the brand in the 80s, as well as fans of the brand today, Entertainment Weekly reported.

Here is what we know so far about Angry Birds Transformers:
The tagline is Birds Disguised As Robots in Disguise, which is a little weird but not off-center for Angry Birds.
Also, rather than have Autobots and Decepticons, there will be Autobirds and Deceptihogs. According to Forbes, featured in the lineup of Autobirds are Optimus (Red), Bumblebee (Chuck) and Heatwave (Terence), just to name a few. The Deceptihogs are consist of Galvatron, Soundwave and Starscream, among others.
By September of this year, Angry Birds gamers should have the ability to swap out their regular characters for the Transformer ones, Forbes reported. This will perhaps be something in a form called TELEPODS technology; the Telepods could allow players to teleport their favorite Angry Birds Transformers characters into the game and gain unique powers, Entertainment Weekly reported.
The Angry Birds Transformers is also expected to extend to the Angry Birds Go! Coming soon!
