I would have definitely paid for that package, it looks sweet. I would take off the transformers part on the side of the car though.

What's so hard about making it the right way?
This is not what people want.
It's not even like the car prop is that much different than the production cars. The only alleged high price item is the paint color. Whats the excuse for the rest of that mess?
GM needs to stop being cheap and or lazy.

I think the package looks nice, but maybe a bit overpriced. I'm more impressed that they photoshopped the color to look more Sunrise Gold than Rally Yellow in the picture . . . The car will look much less like bumblebee in person.

I'd take it. I'm tempted to do some vinyl like that though. Been trying to find something different to do with my new baby. Mine is VR though, but that kinda stripe package would be pretty cool I think.

The 2012 Transformers Special Edition will be offered as a $3,000 package on 2LT and 2SS Camaro Coupes with Rally Yellow paint. In addition to the content offered in the popular RS appearance package, the Transformers edition will feature black rally stripes that stretch over the hood, roof, decklid and unique high-wing rear spoiler; 20-inch, black-painted wheels wrapped in high-performance summer tires; and Autobot Shield logos on the center caps and front quarter panels.
Actually for those complaining about the price, if you subtract the normal price of the RS package and 20" black wheels the cost isn't really that much for the one of a kind items on the special edition

All I'm gonna want off of it is a hood that is unpainted OEM, then get it paint matched for my 2011 1LT in Summit White. Hopefully you can buy it through GMPartsHouse or one of our other sponsors.

I think it has the normal Camaro hood, the hood vent is simulated in the decal.

I can't wait to get my hands on that steering wheel. It'll complete my interior along with my yellow accent panels.

I hope Becky from Rogers Chevrolet can come through with the part.

What did the paint on that cost to get done? Depending on the paint cost, and with all the components you can get from ACS, you could make a lot more accurate Bumblebee than the GM edition for not that much more money.

Just so everyone is clear the stripes are not going to be painted. They will be decals just like all normal rally stripes. The design looks good in the photoshop but here is the problem. The decal stripes are going to look terrible in person and knowing GM they are going to be flat black just like the standard rally stripes....

GM needs to stop being cheap and or lazy.

Most likely Hasbro has Intellectual Property of Bumblebee and his image. Its similar to copywrites... kind of, but is basically in place to prevent something known as "brand confusion". It's also probably why Chevy can't call this "Bumblebee" anywhere in the name, but a deal was obviously worked to say "Transformers Edition".

I guarantee you every transformer toy (produced by Hasbro) looks EXACTLY like the movie version.

I have seen several Bumblebee figures for the T3 movie that look very different from the movie car.

Maybe if you buy one or have the first version you should buy one of these...

The 1st TE stripes are not flat black, and in fact have a nice satin sheen to them. So you might be wrong in assuming.

Well I could see that if hasbro was the one who actually came up with the design of the camaro. GM would be a fool to agree not to make a production car that looks exactly like the movie version. Sure they would have to license the use of the emblems and the trademark name, but the actual likeness and the look of the car is all GM and owned by GM and I would hope they are not that dumb. hasbro owns the likeness of bumblebee as a robot, not the car.
Esp considering all the autobots are GM vehicles that would of been a major screw up.
Body wise the Leno car is the closest to the movie version, minus the high wing, stripes and fake carbon fiber. So they for some reason thought it was a good idea to make Leno one, why not paying customers? It's not like you are gonna get any better advertisement from Leno than you do from the movie.

I don't believe anything anyone says about it being harder to produce or would screw up the production lines. Wasted low volume paint or too expensive paint, all bs speculation IMHO.

Other than the side mirrors, the car needs to look exactly like the movie version. And I don't think that's asking too much to be honest. It's not like we're talking about the batmobile which clearly could not be made into a street car for a number of reasons. the only difference is the front bumper, spoiler, hood, stripes, side skirts, tail pipes and rear diffuser. The same items that were changed on the zl1.

But, charging 3k for a bunch of stickers is a huge profit with no work.
So to the bean counters, hats off to them. They clearly are earning there keep at GM.

I knew this was coming and I knew it will be some stupid sticker and logo package again.

IMO the only thing I want in this package is the yellow stitching interior.

This entails removing doors, trunk , hood , fenders, bumpers, glass and everything else we can take off the car , We even spray the engine bay after removing everything. Anyone interested in this please pm , and we can discuss more options , from supercharger , interior to full exterior rebuild including custom rear vented quarter panels.
$7800 is expensive but much better than this stupid $3000 package.

So Hasbro owns the intellectual property of the Bumblebee car design, which is mostly based on Chevy's Camaro(which I assume Chevy owns the copyright of the Camaro's design)?

If this is true then I say GM need to fire the lawyer who agreed to this....

The stripes on the T.E. are not standard flat black, they are what GM considers gloss black.

so we get a rear wing that looks similar and a color closer to the movie color?

for $3k... i'd expect atleast the TF3 style bumper cover.

will it be TF215 before they just give us a car that looks exactly like the movie car?

Leno TT BB or bust.
