Okay, I've read two of these posts now. I've actually seen in person the bumble bee camaro. I talked to one of the guys as he was loading it up. The bumble bee from the second movie is actually a prototype for the 2012 camaro. If you all wish, I can post pic including, I got shots of the interior.

At least make it look close to Bumblebee in the movie. U know that ground efx, 21" wheels, hood scoop, ect....That thing looks like someone wanted to impress the neighborhood kids by getting Transformer stuff on their car to prove that was really Bumblebee. GM is really reaching with this one here.

Okay here you go. Like I said for all you fans, this version of Bumble Bee is a prototype of 2012, as well as Sideswipe (2012 Stingray Corvette)

Actually the most attractive part to me was the smaller more aggressive rear view mirrors. Also notice the gas cap is positioned like the old school chargers.

Hmm, i like the console emblem, the wheels, the autobot badges on the sides and the sill plates, but the rally stripes and the transformers wording on the hood... i could do without.

I'd get it for just the top 4 and then get it sunrise (or sunset) yellow with painted high gloss over the hood stripes.

because that thing would probably cost around 45,000 plus its a CONCEPT and not in production.

I imagine if you look at the bumblebee from the first movie, it is more closer to what they did, and of course...money. Having a friend that has loved transformers since the 80's, he informed me that the autobots are trying to be hidden, so they wouldn't advertise like the way that the bumblebee package does. The only put the autobot logo where the stock factory logos would be.

I want to meet the first person who buys one of these and puts one of those programable horns underneath of it and records the "transforming sound effect" and plays it back each time he hits the button...THAT would be cool - and uber Geeky (sorry)

So, Thor is already wearing his Transformers badges? Cool! # 1!!!

When it comes to the stripes, I think most of us would like to see the glossy, or even the satin being an option, but even more so I think we like the extended length seen on Bumblebee.

I think this will sell very well, and every Camaro we get out on the road benefits the longevity of the over all program.

One thing, when I just mentioned this option package being official to a friend who has very limited interest, he asked about the emblem in the center of the steering wheel. In the original movie this was a prominent part on the '76 model. I think it should be part of this package as well.... as i said before, its the little things.

Speaking of stripes. I went to a flea market in NY this past weekend and someone was driving a yellow Colorado SS with rally stripes. The yellow didn't even look like rally yellow, but i can't be 100% sure about that because i haven't seen a yellow one in person. The yellow that this colorado SS had looked bumblebee-ish. However the stripes didn't look matte black at all.. almost looked painted. Not too familiar with the SS Colorado though.

In any case, wouldn't you be able to just buy these emblems through GM parts? I mean what if you bought one and you got into a "god forbid" wreck and you needed replacement autobot decals or sill stripes? Or what if you parked way out and someone door dinged your emblem straight off LOL.

I wish I'd kept a low production car from when I was younger; The California Special Mustangs come to mind. They're prize finds now!
Yeah I dont think a few decals and emblems will do this, you need something more than this. Different engine, body parts, etc.

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.
