Prepare for the Next Evolution of Angry Birds! Plus Updates on Stella and Angry Birds Transformers

With the recent surprise update of the Classic Angry Birds game with 15 new Flock Favorites levels, Rovio has begun the next evolution of the franchise, according to an announcement on  They teased that Flock Favorites is one of three updates, with a power meter stating “The Revolution has started!”


While it would seem like a safe bet to assume that Angry Birds Stella and Angry Birds Transformers will likely be the next two “big things” mentioned, Rovio are masters at the surprise curveball, so it could also imply two new updates to the Classic Angry Birds game. Time will tell. You can read their release here.

Speaking of Angry Birds Stella and Angry Birds Transformers, several new pieces of information have been released, just one week prior to the San Diego Comic Con 2014 reveal of the trailers for both games.

Angry Birds Stella

dc25840a82fbddbdff6601034eb67672The Angry Birds Rio 2 update, Timber Tumble, included a link to the updated Stella page on The page now lets you explore all the line’s characters, personalities and special moves.  Don’t forget to explore the Stella Pinterest page, showcasing some amazing Stella artwork by Rovio.

Toys R Us has also listed three Stella Telepods toys on their site with a September 1, 2014 release date.  It is likely that this will be the date of the game’s release as well. Check them out here:

Angry Birds Transformers

Another, in a long line of leaks regarding the line, reports that Toys R Us also posted some Angry Birds Transformers Telepod toys, but promptly pulled the listings.  They mirrored the toy images in their report here.

Additionally,, and FamilyGamer TV bring new images of the same products and more, including prices, a video showcasing each toy, and new Rovio artwork for the line.  From their reports — and in the video above — we learn that the Telepods DO transform, it appears that most will be available as Toys R Us exclusives, and the toy release date is October 1, 2014, again, the likely release date of the game.

As usual, we’ll bring you more updates as they become available.

@dr-omega the next 2 big things are updates for ABO, that is what they mean in the blogs. With the 5th birthday of AB, its still not done. Part 1 out of 3 updates. But of course the 2 new games are also big things :)

A small part of me is scared that Rovio will discontinue updating the classic Angry Birds after the revolution…

Maybe they discontinue the Classic game and bring out a new one with Angry Birds 2 or something.. Maybe update the sprites to the Toon versions like with Rio.

It would at least be a way for them to add new challenges with the Apple Game Center.

Great post and very information video on what is coming in AB Transformers.

My guess is that the revolution will include the Stella release.

My other uneducated guess is that there will be more of game playing with the transformers and it may be coupled with a race. Run the race first and when successfully completed or won the race telepod transforms into a sling type transformer to battle the enemy/pig.

What more could I ask for? My favorite bird being Hal as my favorite transformer being Grimlock! This is too good.

Did you guys notice that the word “Revolution” is mispelled as “Revoution” in the first image? Also, in that picture, there’s also a bird skeleton! Wonder where it came from (probably Darth Vader).

Transformers are not my cup of tea, so I don’t care much about that part of Angry Birds. On the other hand I can’t wait Stella to be release. Of course, I want all toys as well. As I already have all ABSW 2 and ABGO telepods Now I wonder if Stella telepods will make game more interesting then playing without them and any of game IAPs. As I can see Stella and her friends have different outfits in different sets and I wonder why.

Wondering if (or how) the Transformers telepods work when in Robot form.

@habink they do work in robot form because I tried one Telepod and it worked but they sometimes fall down so i (Mostly) put them in vehicle form

Personally, I would like to see an updated/revised Angry Birds, and as someone stated call it Angry Birds 2. Keep it the same “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”!! I think some of these Transformers, may be aimed to the younger kids??

When I hear this, I can’t help but think of “Viva la Revolution”.

Also, could there be a Flock Favourites for the other games as well?

By NES Boy

If the other updates are for Classic, I have the following predictions:

• The game will recieve a massive art overhall to match the Rio 2 levels. This means Toons-style piggies in addition to the Toons-style birds seen in the Rio 2 levels.

• Telepods will be supported for the original Angry Birds game.

It seems that the more iconic characters are introduced, but on the posters we see more characters less known (that white/red variation it’s actualy Strafe), there can be more characters that haven’t been announced.

Stella and friends should be interesting. I am looking forward to seeing what this AB version entails!!

Personally, I hate all the variations such as Epic, Star Wars etc. I just prefer more of the Classic Angry Birds.
