    My wife and I just spent a night in Gatlinburg, TN. (A tourist town in the SMokie Mountains) There are tons of tourist traps and places to go to and see. One of them is the Hollywood Car Museum. Turns out, they have Bumblebee and Landmine on display! I saw a certificate of Authenticity for Landmine, and they said Bumblbee was the real thing. They also had a story under Landmine that explained how he a Sector 7 vehicle and was given life by the Allspark. I took these pics with my cell phone and have more on my digital camera.
    If this isn't news, it can be moved, but I figure the ability to go see the actual movie used vehicles is newsworthy.

    There were several made, and presumably this was one of the ones sold. The Sector Seven Landmine buggies were also sold.

    I don't trust that place,a few years back they sold a horrible Ecto-1(Ghostbusters car) replica and claimed it was the real one from the movies,which it wasn't since the real car was just restored and is sitting at Sony.

    So I would not be surprised if that Bumblebee was a fake,it would be incredibly easy to replicate with enough money.
