On June 27th, the Transformers will be back up on the big screen, but before the year is out, they'll also be in Angry Birds. Yay?
Angry Birds has adapted all sorts of things into its property -- holidays, Rio, Star Wars (twice) ... there are kart racing games, they've gone to space, and there's even an Angry Birds RPG.
And now we can add robots that are more than meets the eye to that ever-growing list. Yes, the Transformers are getting themselves Birded, y'all.
Says Blanca Juti, chief marketing officer of Rovio, "We're really excited to combine the iconic Transformers universe with the quirky world of Angry Birds. This mash-up is going to appeal to both those who grew up with the brand in the '80s, as well as fans of the brand today. People are going to love it!"
We love that the promo art is from the Transformers cartoon as opposed to the Bayformers. Also, pig-faced Starscream is kind of amazing.
What do you think? Welcome tie-in, or is this like orange juice and pizza -- two great tastes that DON'T taste great together?
