Transformers 4 Bumblebee New Vehicle Mode Confirmed - Official Photo Revealed

Posted on 05-30-2013 at 05:38 AM by SilverOptimus under Transformers Movie (Just Movie) (All Transformers Movie News)
Bumblebee-Transformers-4
Michael Bay Official Website has confirmed the previously rumored new Vehicle Mode of Bumblebee for Transformers 4.

"Bumblebee as a highly modified, vintage 1967 Camaro SS."

So, Instagramer rezzieboi was correct after all. Does this mean he's also correct on the fact he tagged the rusty truck as a Dinobot?

Prime's new mode looks more akin to Energon Rodimus.

It's really pouring in the last few days. I'm sure it's just the beginning.

So we have at least 4 Autobots confirmed. What next?

We've been seeing that yellow-on-black look on toys for so long that it's weird to see it in the media. I dig it right now, but it is even further removed from Classic BB.

I've basically decided to drop all preconceived expectations and notions of proper films and Transformers lore in order to enjoy this upcoming film.

That said, these vehicles look bitchin' awesome and I'm excited. I hope that black/yellow muscle car is Bumblebee so bad.
transformervic1
Damn, I just got a weird G1/Prime feeling about seeing these guys in this type of location.

Do not like it if that's BB.
tonyformer
Bee looks to be a 69 camaro now
Bumblethumper
seeing that truck in a publicity still was a little easier to accept.

On some crappy cameraphone pic you get more of a sense of how out-of-the ordinary it is. Looks like it just flew in from outer space.

It almost looks like it's not fully transformed
Haloid1177
Why would he go back to an older alt. mode? In hiding or what? Seems like a downgrade to me.

Are you seriously judging his entire appearance based on a blurry, distant photo?

I don't like the colors. I don't need an excellent photo to make out the fact he's primarily black instead of yellow, do I?

See, even then you can't be sure. For all we know the majority of his sides are heavily shadowed.

I still say that Optimus would make a bitching Rodimus Prime.

I love the black bee in PRIME the cartoon and bee had his movie 1 concept art with him being black... I like it!!

Or, he is primarily black. Which seems more likely.

I find it interesting that this movie doesn't seem to be a giant General Motors advertisement like that last three have been. Don't take that the wrong way of course, because GM has some pretty cool vehicles. But it is interesting to see a whole new take. But I'll be honest I'm not sure I like too many of these changes so far. But it was way too early to judge so I'll just wait and see what shows up.
transformervic1
I just hope Bay and crew can actually elaborate WHY these changes have occured within the movie instead of just having randoms appearing, characters disappearing, with NO explanation. I mean, do they REALLY think: "Yeah we've made a few changes here and there, but the average movie joe isn't gonna notice a thing", almost as if we're retarded?

Yeah just give it rocket boosters and a spoiler and you pretty much have an update Energon Rodimus, which has always been my defoult Rodimus Prime design because I think that the G1 design looks increadibly lame.

the G1 design is horrible i agree, energon rodimus was awesome and i love how it totally flips the standard optimus prie design on its head. i could do without the rockets and spoiler shit though, i like keeping my alternate modes realistic.

That's exactly what's going to happen... just as it already did with Prime, Bumblebee, Ratchet, Megatron & Starscream from movie to movie. Prime got new abs, Bumblebee got new shit here & there on his alt mode, Starscream pops up with new "tattoos", Ratchet friggin changed colors twice, and Megatron suddenly went from alien-space-flying-tank-triple-changing-thing to a beat up Earth semi... all with absolutely zero explanation whatsoever. And look what happened whenever it was brought up on places like this: the turbo fans came rushing in as they always do to "explain" that Transformers apparently update their bodies the way we change clothes blah blah blah. Long story short: be prepared for all that to happen yet again. In that order.

This is me as well, always adored SL Roddy. The MTMTE version is good too but I've been a fan of the SL one.

Retro Camaro Bee? I'm in!

yeah. It's basically a costume change. Bay doesn't give a fuck, why should you.

I'm not going to get hung up waiting for explanations this time around.

These are from the same guy who took the other pic of the black bee car with the green Vett.

Yea, if THAT'S Bee, I'll be fucking stoked!

Got a feeling that Bee is going to do the scout thing again like in movie 1 and later get his new upgrade to a black 2013 with yellow stripes
fallen_revenge
Pretty interesting looking Bumblebee.
President Prime
I like it.

It's nice to see at least one bayformer that's not some brand new state of the art insanely expensive vehicle.
Ring3r
If that's him, consider me extremely surprised. Perhaps a short-term cover that he sheds later?

With the new Z/28 Camaro and the styling updates that the 2014 Camaros all have I figured it was a given that's what BB would be. Either that or a concept version of the 6th generation Camaro (which is being built on the cadillac ATS platform which is hundreds of pounds lighter and much smaller).

I really don't care what he looks like as long as BB FINALLY gets to talk regularly in this one!
Lazerwave
No offence, the new Camaro looks terrible. I Ain't buying the toy.

Too vague for now, but both the green Stingray and Bee seem to have black on them. So does the Bugatti. So did Skids & Mudflap in their intended DOTM look.

Is Bay deliberately trying to make all Autobots half color/half black?

The Veyron isn't black, it's a combination of Navy/baby blue. The car is actually offered that way (or any other way you want it since it's hand built)
AAarcher221
Ooh...I think I see Lockdown tailing BB!
optimusb1327
I say that the green car in sunstreaker (sence sideswipe was a corvette), gray car drift or blurr, and clack car bumblebee.

Wow. I cannot believe that did not occur to me right away, having seen the news about his possible inclusion. That's actually EXACTLY his color scheme...

Hmm. Very interesting.

Look at all dat shadow...in the middle of the desert...in daytime...

Looks like Bee has a yellow stripe on the bottom of all black doors. I like the design and since when it changing your alt mode to an older model of vehicle downgrading? It's not like Bee's performance will change like the car model's have...

On that note, I was hoping/thought Bee would be MIA this time around in order for a new guy to take his place. Disappointed to see Bee is still here

I think it'd look a LOT less freaky if it had a trailer attached to it ~ this Semi cab has such a shorter, boxier look about it, it looks even more foreign without the trailer to "fill out the silhouette".

great more bungholebees to clog pegs...cant we PLEASE have a f%#king movie without this oversaturated assclown? even the REAL 86 tf movie onyl had him in it for about 2 minutes...just long enough to get eaten by unicron!!!!
MindChamber
I will say, that the G1-ish backdrop is something Im kinda digging.

I cant remember exactly where the G1 story was located, but this location so far, gives off a nice old school vibe
420bot
Looks like the same stupid BS designs to me, lol!
I was hoping for clean paint designs on the alt miodes... actually trying to be in disguise!
These all stick out like sore thumbs.
I guess.. what else could it be.. it's Bay?
I'm not digging this new Prime alt mode at all, it will look really dorky years later when we all look back.

Why is the New Link section up top in the sub bar still Transformers 3 news. We're already into Principle photography of Transformers 4. It's not like it's hard to change it to Transformers 4 News.

Takes 10 seconds to find the right line of code and change the 3 to a 4.
