I just thought of something else....

About the paint thinking about it i agree with everone. Chevy did screw up on it and heres why. When you order the 45th camaro you get Carbon Flash Metallic paint. The ONLY way to get it on the camaro is to order the 45th package. NOW i know Carbon Flash Metallic paint has been out for awhile on other cars just not the camaro. So in logic thinking chevy COULD have borrowed another darker yellow paint from another car. Put it as a speical one off paint on this car much like with. Carbon Flash Metallic paint on the 45th. Made it more "bumblebee" color maybe not metallic or pearl like sun set gold. But to match it more closely with the movie car

Something to think about

What a piece of shit. I was really getting excited about the new Transformers edition camaro but they did a really crap job , for 3,000 thats a rip off all they did was paint and make a chunky spoiler. For 3,000 i could do so much more there arent even reall heat reduction ports in the hood what a piece of shit.

when they will stop making these

I read on this site , I think it Becky , and it was said that early to mid January 2012 is when the last orders will be taken .

I've been waiting 5 weeks so far but I know it's on it;s way from the factory because of the emails I get from GM . Can't wait - it's my early Christmas gift to myself .

I love how this Adam guy get credited with the car design, all he did was add a spoiler and stripes to it along with some emblems. Congratulations you're every teenage boy with a Honda.....

1. bumblebee is an SS.. ( there is no issues with the V6 edition not hating)
2. at least offer the fascias as an option..
3. im sure peeps would pay a lil more for the COLOR as well.. the REAL COLOR..

I am a transformers fan since I'm an animator by career so I admire everything artistic about the movies and cartoons. I also have a 2010 transformers edition and will be upgrading to the 2012 transformers edition. I agree it would be awesome to have a "replica" of the movie car but seriously by the time they add on the extras that make the movie car so unique, you're then up to a higher cost competing with the ZL1. Who would pay a price for a special edition when they could have a ZL1. I like what they did with the new 2012 transformers edition and definitely pics don't do it justice. I was on the fence of liking it until I seen it in person.

I never said they weren't well built just that 99% of the teenage population seems to think they're fast. With exception of the NSX which, though I could never own due to it having a 4 cylinder engine, I still respect it.

Honda has lost its way lately. Still great quality, but not a "fun" car in the bunch anymore. Only the Fit, believe it or not, is fun to drive. Handles like a Go Kart. CRZ, inspite of its looks, is the slowest of the fleet. But they are great grocery getters. Save miles from my Camaro.

I don't think it's a bumblebee. More like a knock off of the real thing. Bumblebee is not rally yellow. Also, that is not the right spoiler and the rear striping is wrong

I would never be caught dead in a Honda Fit, Nissan Cube/Leaf, Toyota Prius. They are all too feminine looking for me to ever have any self respect driving, but back on topic. The T3 Camaro (Look Alike) is ugly as sin, the Spoiler is an unnecessary add on that just serves too look ugly but some people think the Mustang is ugly so clearly looks are subjective or maybe some people are just ignorant....

If you'd like the real Bumblebee, you could always cough up several hundred thousand dollars to get a one-off movie car that started life as a gto chassis with a fiberglass shell bolted over top....or you could spend some tens of thousands of dollars to make an SS look just like TF3....

Until then, this is what Chevy offers to pay homage to the movie trilogy that helped put Camaro in the public eye. Nobody ever said it was "bumblebee". In fact, that's why they call it the "Transformers Edition"...

I saw a 2012 transformers edition drive by me on my way to work. (I pass the brand new camaros driving from the Oshawa plant every day) It was cool to see that edition though.

It looks tacky. Only because it is so close to the original. I couldn't do it.
