Adam's a great guy!!

Some of you may remember he was at the last Camaro5Fest in Chandler, AZ.

And this latest iteration of Bumblebee is my favorite, by far!!

Loving the CF-patterned stripes!

What a HUGE dissapointment!.........Front fender is off, wheels are not even the same, spoiler looks totally different, hood looks bad, paint could have been made darker even if it wasnt "metalic" just a darker shade.....how hard is that?!

Front Fender is production, TF3 was not. To make it so would require impact testing among other things.

Wheels - optional 21" just like TF3

Spoiler - no idea...but I'd guess the movie piece is all for show and won't stand up to regular duty.

Hood - eye of the beholder?

Paint - the story of paint is a long one. In short - the true BB paint is impossible from the factory, and a darker color would require difficult plant adjustments.


Dare I pun? These decisions have more than meets the eye...

Nice to see our little car show in Detroit made the Camaro 5 news

It was obviously a real treat for me to have the first production Transformers 3 Camaro debuted at the GM Employee car show the Wednesday before the dream cruise. I was stoked!!!

A special thanks to John Fitzpatrick for making it happen!!!!

We had just finished up the first builds of the production test fit cars, and I begged him to rush one down for the crazy car people to see at Woodward for our Design Center Woodward event.

As always I had my camera in hand, and took picts of Camaros.......ENJOY!!!!

The ONLY part not made from the production tools on the Transformers 3 Camaro, was the front fascia upper black out decal. As u can see the Cybertonian symbols were sitting on top of the black, hence they caught lint. The Production symbols are flush, and built into the stripe.

Stripe package looks terrible IMHO

Not a fan of the engine either.

Some of those other camaros are very nice.

Had to laugh at the wings though

Exactly... if the car looked like your posted picture, that package would be worth at least $10k. (fascia, hood, wheels, custom intakes, paint, spoiler..)

but not whats here, nope.

Anyone know of any company making TF3 replicas, instead of cheap knock offs?

They charge more for the TF edition, charge a little more and get the color right.

How much is a "little" to you? Because I promise BB's color is a lot more than a "little more".

We know the movie car is a custom hand paint, We GET it!!
Using standard paints I'm SURE they can get the color pretty damn close.
Shade now is just wayy far off. It's like they didnt even try to come near the real color.

That would be because they didn't.

Doing that would require the design and validation of a brand new color (which could take 5 years' time from start-to-finish) and then adjusting the plant for said color...it's not as easy as picking a color and spraying it on a car...unfortunately.

Maybe if Bumblebee and the Transformers Trilogy had been anticipated in 2004, we could have a darker yellow.

I know the sunset gold is a lot of $$$ but they could at least use a color that looks close or closer. There are a lot better shades of yellow than what they use. I like how they did the stripes but I don't know about the weird letters. You have to be a pretty big fan of TF to like those.

uh *cough* like me *cough*



the font is called "deception graffiti" its on the front and rear window. Its basicly the Dception version of the Auto-bot font i looked it up myself.

Side note i think its cool that my version of an anti-bee is more close to the new bumblebee due to me adding in the letters. And yes it does say something it has 24 chars all letters in some shape. That says "Nightfall" across my front wind shield

Probably made just for the movie. It would be easier to just get the GM high wing
