I'm actually kinda considering ordering a Camaro, having it painted Sunrise Yellow, and putting on black bumblebee stripes....blacking out the bowtie with a red outline...idk just a thought lol

But I would never pay an extra 1000 for this. But yeah...the ordinary consumer who doesn't go on forums such as these would think they are getting some insanely special product with the "Bumblebee Special Edition"

Those transformer badges on the side of the car are going to get stolen big time. If you have one of these and park it anywhere, don't be surprised to come out and find the badges missing.

Unfortunately this just looks like a Transformers merchandising gimmick, rather than a genuine replica of Bumblebee. They should have done a real replica as far as body panels and color; then it would be cool.

agree completely, plus wasn't the color in the actual movie more of a blend between an orange and yellow? like a sunset yellow almost? I might be making that up

GM really screwed up with this one in my opinion as they had the potential to put out something really great and they wasted it on this?
Is it really? I asked my dealer about the Z28 and he said there really won't be any exterior changes....

OH Please dont cheapen your car with comic book crap and pay 1K on top of that,
no way. When you buy a Camaro, make it a Camaro to be proud of not embarrased.
If you want a transformer car buy the plastic Hasbro one and do with it what you please.
Professionalism is gone like GM I guess.

I think I'd rather wait for the next Transformers Edition Z28 that I'm pretty sure they'll come out with when Transformers 3 comes out in 3-4 years.

You asked....

We have a Camaro Enthusiast in Canada that is actually painting his new Camaro SS/RS in "Sunrise" -- (the paint that Bumblebee is painted in the movie...)

Now --


Please take a guess as to what the paint and material ALONE is going to cost...(not labor...)

(no peeking...)

over $5,000 Canadian.......................




Sooooooooooooooooooo..................


See why?


ALSO NOTE: We call it the "Transformers" Edition -- NOT the "Bumblebee" edition.


Someone said "cheap stripes"

.....another said "buy off of ebay next week"


.......Really?


The stripes are not 'cheap' -- they are quite expensive because they are not just 'decals' -- trust me on this -- (and if you don't -- call a reputable company that does stripes that have gone thru 'desert/arctic validation' -- you may be surprised at just how much the material costs......


Second: The 'stuff' you may buy off of Ebay (and it won't have been licensed and will probably be taken off of ebay rather quickly by Hasbro...) will not have gone thru validation either - so it may look pretty bad after 6 months to a year of being in sun/rain/snow......

Anyone have anything embroidered lately? To get embroidery done RIGHT is not cheap..........

Sooooooooooooo.......yes, $995 is not inexpensive, but on the other hand, the stuff you do get for that money is high quality and it's validated so that it will look good a few years down the road.

As to those who believe it looks 'cheesy' - that's a matter of personal preference.

I can tell you this:

"Thor" has been in his "Transformers" outfit for the past couple of weeks-- and I'm here to tell you that the public-at-large is in love with the package......

To each his/her own.........

I still don't get what you people expected it to be. You want Z28 hood and bumper, wheels and a custom paint and stripe job for less than $1000. Maybe GM should buy back a bunch of GTO's and make them look like exact replicas of the bumblebee Camaro and sell them for $25,000. This car is marketed at non-enthusiests, the type of people GM needs to convert for life, as well as enthusiests. I think this is a great marketing tactic and I applaud GM for doing more to market this great vehicle to a broad market share.

How about GM offering some glossy black stripes without the transformer name for everyone to order, that would look alot better than the matte finish currently available in black.

I believe these things are going to sell like hot cakes, don't get me wrong. I think we all just expected more. People would pay more for more.

If the stripes matched the Bumblebee and was the "mustard-ish" yellow...I would have been all over this. But the paint doesn't match and stripes suck! Not sold! The embroidered logos is pretty cool though.
