    Either Michael bay kept it or one of the crew did. I don't think it was auctioned off like others

    Wow so Bumblebee was really Swindle all along? What a great disguise throughout the Bayverse, must of been why he "pretended" not to be able to use his own voice ;) 

    Either way as I still have my Alternators Swindle, I wonder could I find a suitable Bumblebee head to replace his with and pretend I've got the best ever incarnation we will probably ever see of a Jeep Bumblebee.

    Man I wish this was hound. Funny story, I’m in the market for a new Jeep, but they don’t have dark green yet. Someone in Indiana has a yellow Jeep, license plate is Swindle.

    GM auctioned one (of possibly two built for the film) Jazz Pontiac Solstice vehicles during the bailout. It sold for something around $19k USD. Sometime not too long ago, the vehicle was up for sale again by a private owner asking somewhere in the low $20ks USD.

    I\'m not sure I can accept Bee as a Jeep Willy. My favoret transformer other then Prime is Hound and I always wanted to see him as a Jeep n the movies. Dont get me wrong John Goodman ver of hound is great and funny. I still cant wait to see more photos of the Masterpiece Hound.

    Hey, maybe when they make a figure of this they’ll make one or someone will make a green hound version.

    I really don't get how some can be surprised this was bee, or thought it might be another character. Right in the trailer there is a scene where it shows Bee with the jeep chest

    I'm still confused by this move, especially with these new photos. I got nothing against Bee being a different vehicle, but not sure why it was necessary to use a vehicle that is specifically and iconically tied to Hound, other than... trolling?

    I wonder if the jeep is a way to tie Bee to that WW2 nonsense

    That car isn't street legal due to the stunt modifications. Plus, I highly doubt that vehicle has had the ignition pin recall serviced. That is 100% a need for all Pontiac Solstice models.

    Unknown. Most likely in a Paramount storage warehouse just like where the Wreckers are.
