AutoblogSpanish stumbled upon a pic of Bumblebee on the set of the upcoming Transformers movie being directed by Michael Bay. We've seen pics before of the Chevy Camaro Concept wearing a Bumblebee paint job, but this is the first glimpse of the car in partial transformation. While not too much can be gleaned from the shot, like the fact that it's supposed to be based on the Chevy Camaro Concept at all, we do seeing a model of the car's 6.0L V8 being used as the heart of this animatronic monster.

      Maybe "Photo of the Robotic Mode of Bumblebee Laying Hungover On a Trailer and Not Really Doing Much at All" would be a more suitable title than the misleading one you're using right now.

      But anyway, great pic.

      VW or not, turning Bumblebee into a Camaro is just totally wrong for his character. The coolest thing about him as a kid, is that he's the youngest, smallest, most naive of the Autobots. He's a VW Bug when most of the other guys were F1 cars, or tricked out Jeeps, or a massive semi-truck. He was Spike's best friend and the audience's connection to the Autobots. I haven't read the script, but i don't see Bumblebee's personality matching to a modern high-tech muscle car. If he turned into another small hatchback like a Mazda3 or Ford Focus i wouldn't have a problem.

      Does anyone other than me die a little inside to not see Bumblebee as a Beetle? I'm no VW fanboy, but that's just wrong.

        No. You and the other retards that sent Death threats to Michael Bay are the only ones that have a problem with this shit. He's still cute. He's still Bumblebee. I saw the movie two nights ago at midnight. That qualify me as a geek willing to only get three hours of sleep to go see the premiere. I had no problem with it.

        Nope, just you. He looks so much better as an awesome Camero than a junkie hippie POS VW Bug.

      Hey #16, nice jab at the Alternators series of Transformers, since Prime is a Dodge Ram...

      You know, I figured if anyone would be a big pickup in that series, it would've been Grimlock, in the form of a ram or an F-250.

      Still, I wonder if the Alternators line has any effect on the final look of new Autobots/Decepticons. Something to think about.

      They should've made bumblebee a yellow Mazda3.

      This movie will be really good - until you get to anything affected by Michael Bay Syndrome and then the sucking will start.

      I actually don't care. VW Bugs are kinda lame. Camaros, not so much.

      i thought the same thing as all of you.. "oh.. bumblebee's a camaro.. well that sucks.. OH they're not using the original voice actors.. well i'm not gonna go see this crap. " but i still think i'll see the movie. also i thought of the same thing that #18 said. bumblebee became goldbug.. and the camaro looks pretty gold to me. that could be where they're taking this since the COULDNT use a VW. as long as they make a nod to bumblebee's roots..(somehow) i'll be ok with it.

      I really have to get the camaro. This is the best looking muscle car out there.

      4. Does anyone other than me die a little inside to not see Bumblebee as a Beetle? I'm no VW fanboy, but that's just wrong.


      i completely understand. bumble should be a vw bug but vw does not want to promote anything associated with war, prob ww2 has bittered them.

      hey at least mr bay has kept him yellow! with the design of the new figures leaked, im worried that jerry has really screwed up the design of the characters. hence no bulky parts that resemble the vehicle.

      come on michael, this guy could be mistaked for a dyson vac cleaner!
