Actually I kinda like it..!

The official version is subtle enough just to be cool. The movie version's front (the 2 black stripes in Transformers 2) is ugly though.

It would have been cool to have it available in red, so you could get cliffjumper.

I'd also like to see the autobot symbol in red like it was on the original line of transformers.

I had some strong opinions earlier about this, but you know what...I agree people should be able to buy what they want. Will it be collectible? No. Will it help sell even more camaros? I'm sure it will. I've been catching crap from a pilot over on a vette forum for the GT1 package on our vette. I guess it is much the same with this car.

I still think the "its not a bumblebee" comments could have been alleviated if GM had offered their "transformers" edition on ANY color the customer wanted. Then offering an IOM one to ComicCon would have prevented all the talk of this being a "bumblebee" edition.

I think that is my major issue with this car...the fact that it is yellow AND a transformers edition...which naturally leads the masses, including myself, to think "bumblebee" not "just some other camaro-bodied transformer."

Please read the thread, it's not meant to be bumblebee, nor is it advertised as such. It's called a "Transformers" edition.

Patience?


Don't think so!


Hmmmmm...in about 35 hours, the Black Suburbans and several 'Autobots' will have taken care of those who cannot read thru a thread before making comments!

It will look very much like Bumblebee did in the first Transformers Movie.

As to why it does not look like what it did in the second movie?


>new front Fascia
>new Hood
>new lighting


...................that would put the cost up several thousand dollars --- and frankly, we are working on many new cars and trucks for the new GM.....no time to do a new front end for a couple thousand cars.

We have other Camaro stuff we're working on............

Talking

I'd gladly drive one if one were to magically appear in my driveway

The first mod would be to put an aux windshield tank in the trunk, with a nozzle mounted between the tail lights, and a button on the console.....so bumblebee could spew fluids on the tailgaters behind me

I called my dealer and my order has been changed to include the Transformer package. The only difference in price was the package and getting a credit back for the Rally stripes I had already ordered. By the way..... anyone who says that this car is going to be a collectible doesn't collect cars. Heck, a Warner Bros Chevy Van from a fews years back is worth more than a non-packaged van (And these are soccer mom vehicles) and all it had was a couple of cartoon characters and a DVD system.

I would love it if Chevy could just give it a slight orange tint to the clear coat as it get's painted. That would be a home run and my guess is that it might not cost them to much. I know it's all automated but even a very slight frost by a guy holding a paint gun would be great! This would be a great surprise for the people who ordered them. GM is on the right track by making the Camaro so customizible. Keep up the good work!!!!!!

The pkg is growing on me, however i'd probably only purchase it for the potential resale value down the road.... beyond that, it's still a bad ass Camaro.

Are you saying it will be worth more? I couldn't tell from the way this read.

As far as the Warner Bros. Van being worth more, you hit it on the head with the fact it has a DVD that others may or may not have. Will Kelly Blue Book or Edmunds give you more value or even the auto black book that the dealers use? Not really.

As far as not collecting cars, I'm an addict...I admit it. My current corral includes a '67 swb pickup that is a "cruiser" restoration (something I can drive anywhere), a '50 ex-Air Force base 1/2 ton pickup that still sports about 90% of its original stencils (undergoing a complete restoration), a '69 Impala hardtop sedan with 50K original miles (I'm the third owner, my mother-in-law was #2), and last but not least our '09 Corvette GT1 Convertible (one of ten GM produced in yellow). We've got an '02 Corvette Coupe that will go once the Camaro arrives, and an '08 Pontiac G6 (POS family travel car). Are some of these collectible? Yes, but I could care less about collectibility-I bought them because I love them.

Buying a transformers edition car on the basis of its collectibility is not a good move...Maybe it will be worth more, maybe not. Case in point-Price out a "first 1000" Pontiac Solstice (these cars have SPECIFIC VIN numbers, documentation, and had a definite number of cars produced-something the transformers camaro doesn't have). These cars don't have any more value than a standard Solstice except to a very limited number of people that would buy it.

If you like the look of the car, buy it for that, don't buy it for the "collectibility" that may or not be there. You've got a nice looking car coming, enjoy it!

It looks like GmPartsDirect.com has the parts listed on their site under the 2010 Camaro upgrades. The following is a link directly to the section.

http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/results...er=camarotrans

It looks like most of the parts are not yet available for purchase from GM, but they are on thier site!!! A few of the parts do list the prices.
