I think we're getting halo's

I was looking at my pull-out poster from the Megan Fox issue of Maxim and while my eyes were mostly glued to Bumblebee's features, i started looking closely at all the cars they had compared to their transformed counterparts. I got to thinking about how GM is offering an "Ironhide" Topkick to consumers and when I was looking at the picture of Ironhide transformed, I realized he didnt have the rugged bumper or any of the accents added on for the movie, then I looked at Ratchet and noticed his transformed version was just a regular H2, then it dawned on me.................
these are pics of the actual base vehicles, so I started looking closely at BB and at the camaro at his feet when I noticed the headlights on BB were regular bulbs while the ones on the camaro were halos....

just my $0.02

I agree, I also think we're getting halos.

Try this:
Go to www.chevy.com and click on Concept Camaro. When the main pic shows up there will be the Concept Coupe on the left and the Concept Convertible on the right. If you look carefully, the concept coupe has different headlights than the 'vert. BUT... The coupe's headlights are on bright because the foglights aren't on, and the 'vert's low beams are on because of the foglights.

If that doesn't prove somethin, I don't know what will!



YAY!! Halos for US!!!!

I would have never thought of that. goodonya. If we get Halo's, all the better, but if not...I like the way Bumblebee's headlights look, too!

Again, excellent detective work!

Yeah...that's the halo. Looks real good and I'd bet it will be standard on the Camaro as well.

Idk...I'm not seeing...whoa! You might be right! At least with bumblebee, In the movie, he's got regular headlights, in the posters he's got Halo's...though, I'm still having trouble proving anything from it...

the pics have all of the vehicles in their base model PRODUCTION setup. ie:notice how Ratchets vehicle is a base H2, (not modified)

now look at BB and see the camaro below him with HALO's!

therefore, i am 99.99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% certain that we will be getting halos.

I believe (seriously hope) we'll end up with halo's. BUT I'm not sure that pic is proof enough. The side mirrors are still exceptionally tiny.

I think they just used the concept since there was no actual production model.

Absolutely +1, couldn't have said it any different. Except, that's not the "actual" concept...it's one of their computer generations. So they could give it laser beams for headlights if they wanted.

Either way, I DO belive we're getting Halo's.

I bet we're getting halos too but the pic i think has nothing to do with it cause its not like cause the other cars are production that they decided to get the production camaro. They just took the camaro concept and colored it like the BB. IDK thats just what i think.
