ehhh....I would want to see something closer to the real color of bumblebee. I saw the posts for how expensive, but the should do a color that is similar but not as elaborate. I dont know what goes into the actual bumblebee paint, but have a slight orange tint to the yellow and that would have me satisfied. (yellow orange). I would buy the centercaps for the wheels, but to have a true transformer...its not gonna draw attention to itself. Only those who know something about t-formers would know whats up.

The tranformers on the hood is hooky to me. door seels? fender emblem? ehhh...I would paint the emblem on the car first, but it would be subtle, and also with color changing paint (a nod to the toys of the 80's, where youd rub the emblem and your body heat would show a decepticon or autobot logo.

Only thing I'd want off that package are the center hubs for the wheels and MAYBE the stitched center console. The rest of it screams gaudy.

I'm guessing at least the center hubs will be available at the parts counter.

Those pictures of the actual Bumblecar show thin mirrors and side marker lights which indicate these (this) is a concept car, not a production car. I simply do not believe if this was indeed a pre-type of the 2012 Camaro they'd go backwards and put mirrors and side lights they've already abandoned. Fbodfather saying these cars were concept car bodies fits the photos, regardless of what "the guys loading" them said.

I'd also be curious as to how much paint does it take to paint one of these cars? $5000 Canadian ($4500 U.S.) seems like a lot just for some paint. Granted this is a pearl and not ordinary but wouldn't it certainly cost less in the quantities needed for production? I'm assuming it would take less paint to do this at the factory than have to prep and repaint a car.

If GM could do the body panels, proper paint and stripes as the Bumblebee car, I think they could charge $6k extra and if done right, it would sell. How many I don't know; I thought blue cars would sell in much greater quantities than they have... lol.

Speaking of colors here are some snaps of Bumblebee's PBC30 color, and a few others I thought would look great on a Camaro:

Come on Chevy/GM at least get the stripes correct. $1000 for an incorrect Bumblebee "replica"?

Well to start off the yellow color in the Movie Camaro is a three stage pearl orange-yellow that looks similar to the Lamborghini yellow. They should have gone all out and put the new hood, the new bumper, along with the right color. Then charge around 3k for it and I bet the hard core fans will buy it.

I'll admit it. The reason I'm saving up money to get the 2010 Camaro is because of the movie. But all the logos that you get from the package disgust me. The only things I would want would be the Autobot emblems on the hubs, and passenger and driver side panels. The "Transformers" logoing obviously isn't in the movie, so why would I want it?

I'd rather save up 10 more grand to get a Sunrise yellow paintjob if I wanted it to really be like Bumblebee.

3k wouldnt cover the price of the paint.


let alone a new hood, front fascia, etc.
