    The most famous Bumblebee of all-time. It’s the Chevrolet Camaro. Yeah, far too many Bumblebee toys but… you can’t deny kids love the vehicle mode. Thoughts?

    I love the look of the car. So much so that I get excited every time I see a yellow with black stripes Camaro driving down the road. Hell even if I see one in a parking lot I'll park my car next to it, just so they can battle while I'm in the store....or so I can snap a pic LOL

    Imagine how EPIC BB would have been if he was a 1969 YENKO Camaro AND played the guitar :D  or a DODGE SUPER BEE?!?

    I want a new Camaro in the worst way. My brother owns one but he won't even let me take it for a spin around the block.

    I love all of the three, but you know what's funny? My favorite one is the paint-faded, old Camaro in TF2007, you could smell the amount of CLASSIC written over him.

    Old Camaro > all of the others!

    It also served as a better disguise than the new one.

    The Saleen S351 or S281 aka Barricade is my personal choice. Camaro is a gorgeous car, but I don't care for the black/yellow scheme. It's such an obnoxious color combination.

    I have owened 3 Camaro's in in my life time (37 years old) A 1977 (first car) a 1970 SS and a 1986 Z28. I loved all of the cars, they all were build/restored. I sold my last camaro in 1999. I curently drive german cars and love them but every time a see a camaro on the road it makes me want to some day restore a 1969 one. I figure when I get older and my kids are out of the house I will do it.

    far from my favorite car, but its cool enough I suppose. Everytime I see one in real life I feel as though its much larger than it should be, if they scaled the whole vehicle down I feel it would look much nicer.

    It was a temporary stop in production...then Chevy got it right with the new Camaro. I like the Autobot edition for sure, just not the yellow/black color combo..red or silver for me. :thumb

    Not a fan of the car. It's okay, but has a little ugly to it. The cramped interior sucks too.

    Now the 67-69 Camaros...those are nice cars.

    I love all three of the newer Camaros Bumblebee scans, but I also really like the '74 version. I wish it had more toys. I'm hoping for a Human Alliance figure of it.

    Dear Hasbro. Stop coming up with horrible colour ideas for Bay Bee and just repaint him into some of the real world schemes from the Chevy video.

    Bonus points for new head sculpts. Movieverse Bumper, Hubcap, Bugbite, Glyph... you know the drill.

    My first Camaro was a 76 Type LT, that I had gotten when I was 16. I loved it, even though it was a bastardized version of what a Camaro should be. I drove for a couple years, and parked it to tear it down. I then spent many weekends in the backyard with my dad, tearing that thing apart to attempt a minor restore.
    Unfortunately, when I bought a 96 Z28 SS just before i turned 21, and felt what a Camaro SHOULD feel like, I had kinda ignored the 76.

    I then bought an 86 IROC from a friend, after that, and it eventually got to where I needed to slim things down. So I held on to the 96, and sold the other 2.

    When I saw that Bumblebee's first mode was the 75-77 body style, it was all over for me. I needed that toy. Which incidentally was the first toy that got me back into collecting TFs.

    I have a diehard love for the Camaro. It was the car that taught me about cars, it pulled me back into a hobby i thoroughly enjoy, and it gave me that cliche' father son time that I think I needed at the time.

    So, pardon my sappy story, but what is simply just a car, will always have a place with me.
