Once again the set of the upcoming Transformers film has been infiltrated, and this time a full-body pic of Bumblebee laying prostrate supine flat on his back made it off the lot. It's a perfect view to analyze the Autobot's form and pick out pieces parts from the Chevrolet Camaro concept. The most obvious is Bumblebee's chest plate, which appears to made out of the corners of the Camaro concept's front bumper. Though many have panned the decision to base Bumblebee on the Camaro concept rather than the original Volkswagen Bug, at least he seems to retain that affable charm when bipedal that made him such a likeable 25-foot tall robot.

      or if it were my house:

      "Dude, you have a transformer???!!!"

      'Yes, but it's broken."

      Here's a thought, maybe Bumblebee starts life out as a Camaro, but then in the movie gets damaged so bad that they rebuild him as a VW... hehe, that would be a huge laugh!

      Is the guy in the photo a UAW worker?
      • 8 Years Ago
      Can't be a UAW worker because he's actually working during down time.

      I guarantee this move will suck. All this pre-movie hype is just going to be a let down. The only thing that will be good about it is the CG and special effects. At least the kids will like it though.

      MARK MY WORDS, THIS MOVIE WILL SUCK!!!

      I think the better size scale is the guy's head next to bumblebee's right knee.

      Kickin' Rad.

      I have a bad feeling that this movie is going to suck ass.

      So far looks great!!

      Check out the garbage can near Bumblebee's Head.
      Gives you a perspective of the its size.

      Imagine, how tall Optimus will be.
      Maybe 30 Feet tall possibly??

      Wow, that guy looks a little more aggressive than the Bumblebee I watched back-in-the-day.

      Either way, it would be cool to have one of these things in the family room. Can you imagine the props your kids would get... "Dude, you have a transformer???!!!"

      Its gonna be a neat movie and neat to see all the different cars that they will incorporate into it.

      I just hope the movie doesn't reek too much of excessive advertising. I'm an admitted VW nut, and I'm actually kind of happy they're "updating" Bumblebee with something cutting-edge, but I don't want it to look like a Chevy commercial.
