    Look pretty disguised to me for robots. Very few people actually read the writing on the side of a car that has roof lights an that was Megatron's form for a while...

    I have a hard time believing this is from the movie. Just seems too obvious/blatant.

    Ok, making some alterations is fine - things like Megatron gun to robot - yeah unreasonable size diff and he does form a tank type in some variations. But what the hell are they thinking with Bumblebee? Not like the Beetle is a hard to find car.

    I read somewhere that VW wouldn't give them permission to use the Bug in
    the film. So we get a Camaro instead. To me, if these pictures are real, it
    seems that this is nothing more than a promotion for new cars. How does
    Bumble bee go from a unrestored late 70's camro to the new retro version? :unsure

    They should have kept the clssic looks but I wont judge until it comes out. :angel

    As I posted elsewhere;)

    What?
    Pics?
    You want pics?

    OK :)

    Not sure how legit these are - COULD be fan-made stuff.

    But cool nonetheless IMHO.

    Seemingly, VW won't give up the licence for a Beetle, so Bumblebee's a Camaro instead.

    Tank - Megatron, perhaps? Although it's image name is "Devastator"...

    Man... I could make white reflective vinyl decals of that.... ;)

    Might not want to do the WHOLE badge, for obvious reasons, but the Decepticon head/logo for sure. :D

    By the way, besides changing the very car that Bumblebee is (instead of just not USING him and using someone else) they are making him communicate to people with the tracks he plays from an MP3 player. He doesn't actually talk.

    :rolleyes

    Thanks to Kylash :)thumbsup), I've been able to produce these vinyl decals in reflective white vinyl:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After cutting these, I placed them in a totally dark room and took the pictures using only my camera flash for light. They glow an intense white when hit with a bright light (like my camera flash). Under normal lighting conditions, the decals are a white-ish/silver-ish color. The reflective white vinyl is "engineering grade", and is the same material used on road signs and traffic barrels and cones. It's quite durable. ;)

    I plan on making these as individual decals, and I will also be putting them on black car tags so you have some options on how you can "dress up" your vehicle. I'll be posting these in the Junkyard tonight for those who are interested.

    Again, thanks to Kylash for sending me the artwork. :D

    in the pics i saw, there was a semi-truck that looked exactly like the old optimus, not a fire truck to be seen, he was a fire truck in the new cartoon, but all ive seen....advance cgi and all looks to me like he'll be the semi,

    maybe the firetruck is a rumor by someone trying to make a scoop without the info the back it up?

    Where is that? I thought tha both sources turned out to be false?

    And OP is a semi - Bay (I think?) and all the sources on AICN have stated that.

    Changing the vehicles is a markiting issue. A shame, cause series one of the original cartoon will always define for me what vehicles and items the bots turned into...

    First movie should reflect that, but I guess thats why Im not making it.:) LOL

    The Bumblebee voice idea is when he goes into his new body before he is able to fully intergrate and use his normal voice he is stuck with sound samples, it should still work out just fine. Also that was just an early script idea for him, could change or play a small plot.

    POLICE is Eurostile Bold, 110% width...or at least it's so close that no one would know the difference.

    1865 I am unsure of, I don't have much time to sift through all my fonts to see if I have anything similar.

    Any chance these can be put on auto magnets so we can put them on the sides of our cars (i.e. doors)?

    i know there are companies online that do it for about $30-40 each, have to be done in a somewhat bulk order i think, maybe not...but i dont think the reflective part could be done.

    Side note, might niot be able to get it done till Monday, saved the file from work in CS2 and forgot i only have 8 at home, didnt save as an older file, so Ill see if i can get a friend to convert it for me.

    I don't know if it'd be very wise to put that Decepticon police logo on your car...could get you into lots of trouble.

    well i know a place that can have it done as a big magnet for about $30 each , but it can only be a full color image, not reflective, and yeah, probably shouldnt have it on a car anyway.

    just so you guys know regarding the concerns over putting the decepti-cop logo on your car...i've talked to several police officers recently regarding a costume i'm working on (gotham city cop)..and from what i've been told...as long as you're not trying to represent yourself as a cop it's not considered inpersonating an officer...you can probably put it on your car just so long as you don't put a lightbar on your roof and pull people over...my suggestion is to talk to a cop in your area, show them the design and get their opinion...but i really doubt it would be an issue...skott

    Without a lightbar etc you would probably look more like a security guard then a cop thus probably why it's not considered impersonation.

    From what I have read here and there on the net the names of the Transformers and which vehicle they are (with some obvious exceptions like Optimus as a Semi) are still in flux....Like Devastator may actually be a jet while Megs is the tank (I guess this is some way of trying to muddy the waters of information leaked). I have also read that VW was approached by Takara/Hasbro about producing a new Bumblebee in the Alternators toy line but they scrapped the idea because VW didn't want Bumblebee to have a gun. Supposedly Takara/Hasbro changed Bumblebee in the movie to a Camaro to avoid the same issue of showing a VW engaged in "violence"....Though I don't know why they wouldn't just rename the character.
