+1 this is a bigtime FAIL as a legitimat collectors item.
If you're going to do something, don't do it half-@$$ed.
No way a bunch of emblems that can be bought off e-bay and one piece of ebroidered leather is worh $995

I really think they misinterpreted what we (the masses) wanted. Back when they made a replica of the smokey and the bandit cars, it was just that, a replica. It didn't have the movie title writtin anywhere on it. Simply put, we fell in love with the car (bumblebee) in the movie, not the movie with the car in it. I really hope this is still on the drawing board, and they can go back and see what we were really asking for.

It's funny, back when this was all just a rumor, someone said it was running behind because they were having trouble getting the license for the TF emblom. I thought to myself, why are the needing the emblom, it wasn't on the car (except for the classic version). I now see what they were reffering to.

GM, this just isn't what we were dreaming of (and I say that with a very personal and strong sense). Please take it back to the drawing board, and just give us BB as is. We want the car, not the movie. As far as the paint color goes, I wish people would stop thinking we need the exact BB color. Just make it a slightly darker pearlish yellow. If you can make a pearl red, just a make a pearl yellow. It really is that simple isn't it.

You should keep in mind that as big as TF is, it won't always be that big. It will die down some day. I wouldn't want a car with all these logos on it if it wasn't the IN thing anymore. If it was just the BB setup, at least you could ride through the hey day of it all, then still have a cool car after it's all said and done. Imagine if someone was riding around in a TA with smokey and the bandits written all over it, you would just think, man, what a redneck. Instead, you still have a bunch of really nice black TA's with gold birds on them that speak for themselves.

Please, please, rethink this. I chose not to rip the car apart, but to just let you know what I, and many others were expecting.

On a side note. Now that I think about it, is this why the black ralley stripe ended up being flat black? So that they can reserve the glossy stripe for this car.

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.
