    I wanted to let our rich TFW2005 community members know that the Blue Chromia crotch rocket style motor cycle used in Transformers Revenge of the fallen is up for auction.:thumbs2: :thumbs2: :thumbs2: 

    [​IMG]

    Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen (2009) - This is the original “Chromia” Arcee Motorcycle from Michael Bay’s film. This motorcycle, named “Chromia”, is based on the toy and comic book character. Created by Retro Superbike from a 2008 Suzuki B-King, it was used on set in the opening sequence of the movie and in the introduction of the new Autobot. It was called “F@cking Awesome” by Michael Bay (photo above) when he first saw it. The paint scheme, as dictated by Bay and crew, depicts the Glyphs seen throughout the movie. Also includes a damaged fairing piece and the original studio rendering used for design approval. This item is oversized and will require additional shipping charges. Please email for shipping rates prior to bidding.

    Here is the link to the auction TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN - "Chromia" Motorcycle

    HAPPY BIDDING:p

    This is the first time I've ever wanted to own a motorcycle.

    Sadly, it's not the first time I've ever wanted $25,000.

    It does make me wonder, where exactly are the red and purple motorcycles?

    can you see more on a higher res version ?

    Yeah, really, they just get shot, then completely disappear, just like every other robot in the movie.

    The newest comic currently released, Rising Storm: Issue 1, has established that all three are alive and well, though, the red one (Arcee) is recovering from injuries she sustained during the battle; it also established just how exactly the three are linked (physically, separate individual, all sharing a mental link, hinting that they also might be able to transfer their minds if need be). Despite some incredibly incoherent artwork; it's a surprisingly good read, that actually straightens out some of the movie universes inconsistencies.

    But seriously, though, if the Blue bike is being sold, is Hasbro keeping the red and purple ones?

    Cool but I have no use for Chromia at this point now if that was toy painted like that well. Might change my mind.

    Sounds to me like they respawned in the wrong location. :) 


    That said, I want that Chromia. Too bad I don't have $25k and I don't live in the USA. xD

    And the MINIMUM first bid is $25K? What the hell? Granted it is a nice bike and a movie piece but that seems a little absurd for a starting bid.

    Oh shit that is one awesome bike! I agree though that $25,000 is a LOT for a bike, even a famous one! I always liked the overall design of the Chromia bike the most, even if I liked the design for Arcee's bot mode more.

    If I was a millionaire, I would certainly bid on this.

    PS: Can anyone tell me what the make/model of the other two biker sisters were? I now know that Chromia is the Suzuki B(urger)-King, but what about Arcee and Elita-1?

    If only I had 25,000 USD and lived in the States.

    So could this be an indication that Chromia (or her blue bike form at least) won't be back for DotM? (Not that I thought she would be, but there was always a possibility.) Wonder if they'll be auctioning the other two bikes off at some point as well?

    No sadly Arcee and the bikes are not in DOTM because that loser :throw  Michael Bay didn't want Arcee or fembots in the movie in the first place and as far as he is concerned the bikes were all destroyed in ROTF...this is also why she had such little screen time in the movie.....which sucked:thumbdown

    Woow, I just saw today three bikes at some new shop.
    There was blue, red and purple one.
    They aren't the exect models that are used for filming, but they look nearly identical.
    Really.
    Also they don't have cybertronian languge on them.
