    Noticed some changes to the front of BB alt-mode.

    * New Bumper with a "lip" and air intake.
    * New hood scoop/air intake.
    * New Rims.
    * Less obvious chevy logo.
    * Darker color scheme (it seems).

    See pictures:

    I like the first better, it looks a bit sleeker to me. I might eventually grow to the other one, though

    I wonder if the film makers were able to get a few of the production models together before GM officialy releases the new Camaro. That may explain the slight differences.

    I remember reading an interview that Shia gave and he was going on about how the on set GM handler for the Camaro prototype used durring the filming of the first movie all but made him an Megan Fox wear full body condoms for fear that they would perspire on the interior or touch the paint.

    Really? I thought all the movie Camaros were old ones modified to look like the new model. I don't remember reading that one was the real deal.

    The movie Camaros were million dollar prototypes built in part by Saleen iirc. Bay pulled a lot of strings to get them into the film.

    the first alt bumblebee which was a nicer looking alt IMO was the Concept camaro as many stated here.

    This one is most likely the mass production mold of that model camaro. There would be no reason to use a ridiculously expensive concept since the production cars are becoming readily available.

    :lolol 

    So that's how their going to sell the first movie toys with the sequel toys, by slightly tweeking the look of the actual Car(s) from the first Movie... they can do slight retools on the exsisting molds. So it forces you to go out and by another 3 versions of each TF1 character in the sequel line.


    LMAO

    Im not sure I like it. It's not production. Their fronts are still similar to the 1st BB.

    More importantly! Does this mean Ratchet is now also confirmed? (don't shoot me if he was already) I mean, his vehicle-mode is on the picture

    They wore full body condoms to go inside Bumblebee...Sorry had to take the shot at that.

    As far as I have been reading, they confirmed Ratchet a while ago.

    Great job noticing that. The lip and the hood intake are probably desgined to be similar to the future SRT model. Maybe the rims were changed for the same reason.

    No this new BB is not the production Camaro. all it is is just a body kit with a aftermarket hood.

    here is how the 2010 camaro (to be released 2009) will look like, except for the dual head light assembly:

    chevy doesnt make SRT....thats a dodge trademark. maybe you are thinking SS?


    also...the camaro concept from TF1 is a PONTIAC GTO with all fiberglass body.

    anyways...the new ones looks good...except for the air vents/fog light holder? on the bumper
