    Rumors are coming in that; Transformers 3 Autobot Bumblebee would be a Chevrolet Camaro Convertible 2011.

    Tmurphycardesign of the Camaro5.com forums, claim to have seen the new Bumblebee.

    Coincidentally, GM officially revealed (two days ago on April 14th) teaser pictures of the new Camaro Convertible due to release on year 2011.

    To support the rumor even further more, an abandoned concept art for Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen Bumblebee clearly shows a Camaro Convertible Alternate Mode.

    Is this the “Upgraded” Bumblebee, Scott Benza and Scott Ferrar from Industrial Light & Magic were talking about?

    Also, please remember that this news is of Rumor Category until we get confirmation.

    Okay. I have three unreasonable hatreds. Pennies, Nickleback and Convertables. And there's two things I have unreasonable love for. Yellow and Robots. I don't know what to think.

    Sounds like a good idea to me. Without a hood he will end up with a lot less back kibble.

    That's just the color of the model revealed. Not the actual car to be used.

    Um...the guy at Camaro5 doesn't say it is a convertable. Someone else asks that, but he never answers. He doesn't say anything about it other than he "saw it" and that it looks "more designed," whatever that means.

    Shooting starts soon and I am sure we will get a ton of spy pictures that will either confirm or disprove this rumor.

    As long as he stays yellow..I remember seeing red Bumblebee concepts for TF2 and thought 'are they really going to do this?'.

    It's possible, for sure. I remember that they were seriously considering Bumblebee be a convertible for ROTF.
    I'm not sure if I'm a fan of the idea though. I feel like the alternate mode is a representation, and actual part of the character. If the alternate mode keeps changing, I feel like the character itself is in a constant state of flux.

    Like everyone else is saying... if we see this in the same color on set.
    I think we have our Cliff...
    Cause I swear to God in heaven if it's Bumblebee?
    I'm going to kill Micheal Bay.

    No, dear god no... please let this be a false rumor. I just cannot see Bumblebee transforming into a convertible Camaro.

    I support the idea of BB being a convertible.

    I think Bumblebee would look cool as a convertable... Might make a great translation into a toy as well.

    This is exactly what I thought. Means we just get a better toy, because god knows how many he'll get with his new look.

    BB as a convertible, eh? I guess it'd be kinda interesting to see.

    When I was looking at this photo of this red Camaro convertible. The first thing came into my mind was Cliffjumper.

    It really doesn't make any difference to me whether he's a convertible or not.
