    I scoped out www.detroitriverdays.com and....

    GM’s Stars of Summer Action –Adventure ‘Transformers™’ on Display June 22 – June 27, 2007

    Four of Hollywood’s newest stars, the Chevrolet Camaro, Pontiac Solstice, Hummer H2 and GMC Top Kick medium duty truck will take center stage at the Detroit International River Days presented by GM in collaboration with the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy and The Parade Company, beginning June 22 through June 27 taking place along Detroit’s new RiverWalk.

    GM’s vehicles all star in this summer’s action adventure, “Transformers™,” opening July 3, 2007. These stars will be on display at the first-ever, six day festival celebrating the decade-long effort to bring life and excitement to the riverfront and downtown Detroit.

    WOOOO!!! I'm going this weekend and will post pics soon after.

    I don't understand why they don't just make scale models of the bots.
    Seeing as how they're so realistic...

    if i could get there i'd take off in Ironhide like it was no one's business...

    I'd say something like, "hey wheres the keys to my truck?" and some one would be dumb enough to give them to me that would rock... i'd be out like a fat kid in dodgeball...

    You know they should raffle or put these vehicles in a contest i would kill for that Topkick Truck... its absolute candy

    I wonder if I'll be able to get my picture taken with them as long as I'm outside of the roped off area. I'm going to take my Prime helmet with me, and wear a TF shirt. Maybe I'll get special treatment *hopes to god*

    Those really are cool looking, I'd love to get accurate scale models of those, even if the transformation is forfeit.

    BTW Fastballspecial, where did you get your avatar from? I've seen a couple of people with the movie characters like that.
