Exception:

If it was a limited edition like Jeep Wrangler did with "Tomb Raider",they made like 1,000 of them.Though was not like the beast Angelina Jolie rode around in.But you can't find that Jeep anywhere!!


Don't really need all those emblems...maybe two or three....

My husband was actually entertaining ordering this..until I posed the question.

"You're grown ass man,do you really want to pull up in a roughly $45,000 "poser autobot car" in front of all your friends?"

Who drive Corvettes,Porche,one has a Viper,old school Barracuda??

nope, the contest cars had the BB package. which costs roughly a metric shit ton more than this transformer package.

RJT and IOM dont cost as much as this paint. or did you not read the thread completely and see where a rough estimate of the cost for the BB paint was mentioned?

Yeah, I saw that. But what is so special about that particular color that the paint alone costs $5K, Gold leaf? I guess thats my point. That just makes no sense to me. Completely stripping one paint job, and repainting okay. Maybe the cost of having a paint shop 'custom' mix that color. But GM has none of those costs.

its "special" paint. it makes your car transform.

there are hundreds of different paints out there that cost extraneous amounts of money. the sunset yellow is one of those. GM is building and painting the car, so GM still has these costs to worry about. they have to buy the paint (or the ingredients to mix it), set up a separate line/booth just for that color, then paint the car. and the fact that its multilayered doesnt help pricing either way.

Sorry guys, but I am changing my order tommorrow to add the Transformer Edition. My car was similiar anyways..... I think that it is a subtle package and really doesn't stand out from a distance. Those that like the Transformers will identify with the badging and those that don't won't have a clue that anything is different. I like it because it will be just one more thing that makes my car unique, but still factory. The price is really fair since I would have paid up to $3000 or so to have this package. It will always show up on my build sheet, which is something that the fakes will never have. This car will be a collectible down the road! Perfect or not! It's unique! Kind-of like those ugly $5000 rimms that guys are adding to their RS packages.....I can see replacing special rimms for $5000 but some people do. That's their choice and may make their car worth more some day.

By the way, the "Smokey and the Bandit" cars were out before the movie. Pontiac just offered up the TA and the rest is history. (The 76 TA had the bird and gold pin striping) Burt's was a 77.

Please God, please don't let Ford get wind of this. Please don't let them produce a Knight Rider (2008) Mustang edition with all those tacky add-ons and a dorky ultra-gigantic-spoiler. Thanks.

Was the Police Car in Transformers a Mustang/Decepticon?

No matter how much I slow it down..I can't tell...Transformers 2 Audi R8 was a decepticon.....opening scenes...sliced in half by Sideswipe

I’m not sure how high on the list of priorities the Bumblebee Camaro is while GM is restructuring after bankruptcy.

It was a Mustang, and I agree, it's really hard to tell. I think the contrast of the black 'n white paint job and the frenetic pace of quick cuts from scene to scene is what throws it off. Heck, I have one as a daily driver and didn't notice it the first time I watched the movie. I finally recognized it from the headlights & grille - then it fell into place and other details became more obvious. A door handle here, a taillight there....

mmmmmmmmmmkay.......


..........so we'll ignore what some other Camaro enthusiasts and the public asked for.........

Keep in mind that everyone has an opinion.

Also keep in mind that we started building the car in March -- that less than half a year ago -- what makes you think we don't have OTHER things up our sleeves?????

Can SOMEONE make me a new 'smilie' - kinda like: :notheadlights:


that reads:


"TRANSFORMERS EDITION -- not BUMBLEBEE EDITION!!!!!!




The Transformers Edition is not for everyone - it's for a 'different' Camaro buyer - -most likely not an enthusiast.

Some of the comments remind me of the hysteria we faced over the first pics of the 35th Anniversary Limited Edition. (we sold out within a month...) -- or the first pictures of the White car taken in a garage --

.......OR THE HEADLIGHTS panic.........


Calm down! We don't expect everyone to fall in love with this - but perhaps you should wait to see one in person -- (....hmmmm...I've said THAT about 3 million times in the past year...)

"Thor" was upfitted with the package and i have yet to get a bad comment on it -- and believe me -- I've had families come up and just go nutz over it....

(...naturally I let their kids sit behind the wheel for pictures...)

mmmmm........do you have data to back that up?

I'm not sure who you mean by "hard core fans" --

Camaro enthusiasts?

or

Transformers Enthusiasts?


If the former, most will special order their car with the options and color they want...

If the latter -- my experience shows that they like what they see in the package we're offering.........

Please -- I'm begging you --

Before you make another statement like that - please -- PLEASE -- go to a reputable body shop -- and ask them to get a price painting your car in "Shimrin Sunrise" paint from Valspar.

Okay, if you guys are REAL transformers fans, then GM should buy a bunch of used VW Bugs. Cause that is keepin it real. All this other stuff is tacky stuff. I totally agree with the guy that said it will be worth more some day - no doubt - but I'm not wealthy enough to mothball a car so my grandkids can sell it for $500k after I'm dead. But this is just my opinion. Like Joe Dirt said "it's not what you like, it's the consumer" so God (or fbodfather) Bless those who like it. I fell in love with the Camaro concept, well before the
movie. Transformers just helped me pick out a color scheme (but damn that IOM with white stripes is HOT!). I bought a 426hp sports car, not a kids toy. Anyway, I hope they sell a shitload of them.

And again, no disrespect fbodfather. You rock it, and any way you want it is the way you should get it (is Thor going to eventually get the 2tone in your pic?).
