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.


I agree with you, I say 1000 dollars for just some stickers and all is retarded but I wouldnt expect much more. To get what everybody wants on this thing, if you were to get it in a 2ss it would probably run 45-50k then who would buy it. Im still finding putting a cartoon on a car pretty corny and chessy, its not like transformers is woven into the fabric of america. It would be like putting out a thunder cats or Voltron camaro.

Read the thread all this it isn't Bumble Bee stuff is rediculous this is not a bumble bee package it is a Transformer package so get off how it isn't Bumble Bee we all know that already & it just beats a dead horse I think the quality will be well worth the grand it cost if it isn't for you don't buy it, its point is to get the car sold to a WIDER audience & move more units sound business model in my eyes good job GM it is suttle with class

This z28 doesn't look as refined and little too childish for me. I'd much rather see Jinx's camaro come to life, then GM would have no trouble selling the car what-so-ever.

No it's not.

There are two "Bumblebee" cars -- they are modeled after the Camaro Concept car -- but they are on a GTO chassis. The interiors are hard plastic in many spots.......

In the first movie, they look just like the concept - in the second movie, they have a different fascia and hood.......

....but they are still the same two vehicles......

Might make a little more sense if they didn't insist on it being yellow...since as quoted before, "it isn't a bumblebee edition, it is a transformers edition." Since it isn't supposed to be bumblebee, why the insistence on it being yellow? Look at it this way, make it available for every color and that's $995 for EVERY one you sell and you'll sell quite a few. Not everyone wants a yellow car. I personally wish the car hadn't been in transformers from the standpoint that I wanted a yellow car and now I wouldn't buy that color. I'm going toward either black or IOM at this point.

Is it available only on Yellow camaros?

why not open it up to the other colors. I wouldn't do it on mine but... some people MIGHT want it on their camaros but they like other color other than yellow.....

Does it cost more money to make it available to other color camaros?

The cars had been sitting there for the weekend. I'm assuming it was a precaution in case the batteries had drained.
