Personally that looks gay to me. I wouldn't want Transformers written on the stripes of my hood. Guess I would have to goto a Star Trek convention with all those geeks

I gotta say I like the package for what it is. I'm really diggin' the rims and the console lid. If i were going to go with badges on the exterior, I'd do one Autobot logo where the SS or RS logo goes on the rear. Oh, and the sill plates are a nice touch.

we're all over reacting the average consumer is nothing like us...the transformers franchise is a money maker and i don't blame gm for trying to get a cut of that money machine

i know the camaro i want and i know the transformers package isn't for me...but i was never interested in a bumblebee replica anyway....i want to make my own convertible concept when i get mine...i'll play with my car and customize it how i want

again i'm just glad this car is back....

You'd think that GM would have made it look more like the Bumblebee in the movie.
On top of incorrect stripes and color, and having "special emblems" they didn't even add the front ground fx or paint the foglights' area black.
Real dissappointment. I guess this is just to appeal to the people who are ordering because of the movie...

fbod,

Do you happen to have any new pics of Thor with his latest fitments? I apologize if you've posted them previously, I may have missed them. I did look at the photos released from GM, but I'd be interested to see them in the "real world."

Would have been more unique if they would have put the full rally stripe on the hood


notice I didn't call it a 'bumblebee' stripe....because this is what a bumblebee stripe looks like:

Looks like 90 % can't read or can't understand what they read.

Angry

totally agree - what a piece of crap

Any tool who would pay 1000clams to put that infantile logo on the deck of their car - really makes me howl!

This is what happens when you hand over a project to some marketing geek ( under cost control decrees ) as a weekend home work assignment.

They've cheapened the Camaro brand by doing this kaack

btw - any weiners/whiners out there who start crying that it's not the bumblebee or whatever don't get the point:

Only knobs? Is that in reference to a door knob?

Wow, what's with all the hate? I found this site because I was looking for details on the transformers edition camaro, and I think GM did a good job on it.

No, it doesn't look exactly like Bumblebee, but it's close enough for the average person to recognize it. I like that GM kept it subtle, and I guarantee that only comic con geeks will complain that it's not an exact replica - everyone else that can recognize the decals will think that it's pretty sweet.

For those complaining about the price, the stripes alone are ~$500 as an option. I wonder how many of the haters here are either A) too old to like Transformers, B) too young to like Transformers, or C) pissed that they can't order one. I understand that it's not for everybody, but I don't think outright hatred is warranted.

If you don't like it, get something else, but this package is what got me interested in the new camaro to begin with. Now I've got to figure out which I like more: a Transformers edition or IOM with IO interior and black hockey stripes.

it's a free country man - don't confuse hate with strong opinions - that's what these boards are all about.

if cheap decals from hasbro toys are yer thing - spare us the tears and DO IT !

Nah, I'll definitely pass on this add on...it's quite silly...the heritage of this car mixed with a new age "for the moment"-(allbeit good entertainment-GO BRUCKHEIMER) hot movie theme is just weird, IMO....

I agree! I loved the movie and realize the car is not perfect but a decent job. Although not my choice, I prefer a black car, but it looks good just the same and in my opinion GM did not go too overboard with the design. As for me I respect everyone’s opinion, hey whatever you choose is cool but really I’m just glad the Camaro is back and mine is on order!

I think that is Thor in the pictures............

Its the same car from TF1...... I've been in both cars. With a new hood, front and wheels.

The paint job is very costly, a friend of mine wanted to get his car done and it was going to cost him 9k......

Again its a Transformers edition not a BB edition.

To each his own, me I think there a to many emblems on the car. I would have either done the wheels or the fender not both.
