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.
