Roaring into stores at the beginning of October with all the articulation of a Happy Meal toy, Hasbro’s Angry Birds Transformers Telepods toys change from vehicles with heads to robots with heads. They’re Headmasters!
Of course, they aren’t Headmasters. Headmasters are Transformers whose heads transform into smaller robots. That’s extra transforming. What Angry Birds Transformers do is more of a folding manoeuvre, akin to some of Hasbro’s more recent releases in the movie toy line. Angry Birds Folders doesn’t sound all that appealing. I think they already sell those at Walmart.
I mean, at least they do something aside from costing $US5.99 for Toys’R’Us exclusive single figures and interacting with the Angry Birds Transformers mobile game we know next to nothing about via Matrix-shaped portal. They could have been Action Masters.
Either way, the fine folks at FamilyGamerTV have a complete rundown of the upcoming toys in the video below, riddled with slow camera pans over static images and delightful accents.
