    Maybe I'm alone in that boat, but I'd really like to see a new take on the old Camaro from the first movie, possibly in the Human Alliance class. That cool looking car that deserves at least a second chance with modern technology.

    The '76 Camaro? That thing was a piece of crap! Maybe if it was a 67-69 Camaro, but the 1st and 5th Gen Camaros were/are the best looking ones. The Camaro from the first movie was just a throwaway...a novelty.

    I was thinking of this the other day. I would really like to see a new toy of the original movie Bumblebee.

    I agree. The first one was just so blah! I'd love it at a deluxe class.

    I was thinking, if the Datsun seen on set in Bumblebee's colors IS Bumblebee, maybe we'll get a toy of that as a stand in for 76 Camero.

    What I'd like to see is the G1 Bumblebee character as an old-school Camaro. I'm really tired of movie Bee, but not Bee in general.

    I agree, it'd be a nice change from the modern Camaro. Seeing as how they released like 20+ Bumblebees in ROTF alone, I wish one of them was an update on the older Camaro.

    I completely agree with the OP's thoughts.

    Seeing it in Human Alliance scale = complete win.

    It's something other than the same thing as before with a new size, new gimmick, or updated design, at least.

    It would be nice as a part of an expanded post-movie assortment. Go back and revisit earlier characters like 76 Bumblebee, Blackout and Movie 1 Megatron and rework them with more accurate designs and stuff.

    (A reworked first movie Megatron would also go well with a three pack of the other two incarnations from across the films - a sort of "evolution of tyranny" set. Voyagers for all three, naturally.)

    Not alone! HA would be cool, but I'd be more than happy with a new deluxe with Battle Blades Bee design/sculpt (they can skip the gimmick though)... a remolded car shell is all that is really needed methinks!

    I support this. I really liked his old camaro mode.

    Seriously, Barricade gets so many figures why not BB's original Earth mode?

    You can add me to the list of people that like the old Camaro Bumblebee. Any new version of it would be an instant buy for me.

    Interesting. Too bad it's not available in the proper colors.

    If they could do a nice job with the "beat to shit" detailing I'd probably bite, but I wasn't a fan of the "urine stained" look they gave the ICT's in some of those multipacks they released them in.
