Seems way too expensive for what you get. And what you get seems like overkill to me.
They should have put the Autobot insignia on the steering wheel as well.
OMGGG I want one! Gosh I don't have any money. When I get a car i was planning to put an autobot decal on it. But if i bought this, it'd have official ones on it already. I want it!
I think it's very appropriately priced. Stripes from the factory cost around $500, and those are custom, with "Transformers" on them, which makes them very unique and closer to $550. Then you have the leather with stitching on the center console. That is probably about $150 or so. Then you have the center wheel caps. I'm sure you will be able to find them cheaper but they would probably be around $50 from Chevrolet. The sill plates are currently sold by GM for around $100, although those are custom TF ones, so say $150. Then you have the Autobot logos. Yes, you can get similar but waaaay cheaper off ebay for about $15 but the GM edition will be quality, tested, and warrantied. I'd say $50 for these easily.
That's $950 right there. Plus it is all licensed merchandise and any cheap stuff you were to buy off ebay would most likely be unlicensed.
Sounds like it's priced just right to me.
I'm getting the Bumblebee Camaro but I don't want all the Autobot logos. I just want one on the steering wheel and that's it. The rest never appeared in the film and really IMO, takes away from the "robots in disguise" aspect.
I'm getting the regular 2 model, not the SS.
Now if they would have offered the custom hood and front bumper, I'd be all over it
Take that Harry Potter and Twilight fans, what do you get from being a fan? Tell me what do you get? What do you get? NOTHING.
We, TF fans get a freaking car based on a character of the silver screen. Not even Batman fans can buy a fully licensed Batmobile.
I say we're very lucky.
I've said it before and I'll say it again.. that amount of Horsepower with that mileage is awesome...considering it isn't a diesel. Color me impressed.
Apparently the QC on the Camaros is all over the board. Doesn't necessarily mean that your new Camaro will have any issues, but it's good to know what to look for.
Camaro5 provides 68-point checklist when picking up your new Camaro
The advantages of a big engine, lots of power without trying hard = lower fuel consumption than expected. Smaller engines can use a lot of fuel trying to make power, especially with peak hp at the high rev range.
Throw in Megan Fox and we'll call it a deal.
Well I'll be! It would be so nice to have one of these...
Base model with same paint job is $23,510.
Just too bad I'm not a Chevy fan
I was hoping this would be a screen-accurate Bumblebee, not just a yellow Camaro with insignia all over it.
So far, you can't buy Screen Bee at all, without custom bodykits. The rally stripes on the website are even different.
Don't buy GM striping---buy aftermarket! You can get the *exact* same stripe pattern as BB if you go aftermarket, and they cost half as much. http://www.vinylgraphics.net/shopexd.asp?id=4651
And check out this guy's pics of that set on his yellow Camaro:
All for a lot less money than the "official BB package" costs.
Problem with just the base model is that it doesn't have the lights on the lower front, which is dumb and your're getting ripped off, it's best to go with the second model.
Anyways, does anyone know when production of this package will halt?
