Differences in the Bumblebee Yellow and the Current Yellow available now?

I tried to search this topic and could not find much on it.... It appears that there is a differece in the Yellow colors of both.

Bumblebee Yellow almost being a Pearl Yellow and the current available Yellow being a true type metalic Yellow.

Is the Limited Edition offered in the Pearl Yellow depicted in some of the true Bumblebee pics or will the Limited Edition only be offered the reg Metalic Yellow currently available?

If this has been asked and I overlooked it when I searched....if someone could direct me to the link, it would be much appreciated.

Here is a link to a youtube with the Pearl Yellow I am referring to....



Thanks for any info!!

Unhappy

the bumblebee edition or transformers edition camaro will be painted factory Rally Yellow and not the 'Sunrise Pearl' that was custom made by House of Kolor :(.

the reason is the thousands of dollars just in paint alone the HOK paint is. not to mention the multi-stage labor. knowing the body industry a little, i'd say GM would get $5k - $8k more just for that paint job. and if you scratch it, u cant just touch it up. if u wreck it, u can't blend it.

it is a beautifull color (and someone may do a single stage base coat clear coat version someday), but just not practical.

also.........it's a "Transformers Edition" and not a "BumbleBee Edition"......

i for one would love the body kit and the color.......

Yeah if that color was offered, that would be my choice. Did not realize it was that tough to produce and so labor intensive. No doubt that would be my choice over the factory Yellow.
