Almost a decade ago, Director Michael Bay first set off the journey into the world of robots through the Transformers franchise. Since 2007, there have been four instalments of the said film, drawing fans and critics alike.
Admit it or not, we have been drawn to some of its characters and it didn’t matter if they were Autobots or Decepticons because they all looked cool. Most of them were pretty damn cool. Why wouldn’t they be, right? It’s not everyday that we’d run into a red Ferrari 458 Italia that would transform into a bad guy busting machine or an AM General Humvee that’s actually an Autobot medic. Yeah, those things don’t happen everyday so that’s why there are some people who are hooked on this movie. But the character that has captured the hearts of many is the gentle but vicious Bumblebee.
Who wouldn’t recognize this yellow Autobot, right? Aside from his charismatic demeanor (and the fact that he’s one of Optimus Prime’s most trusted comrades), Bumblebee has always been easy to spot because of his color – yellow. Well if it isn’t obvious enough, the character sports a yellow paint scheme that is inspired by a certain genus of bees which makes his character all the more prominent in the movie. His alternative vehicle mode has been in the form of either a Pontiac Firebird or the most well-known of them all, a Chevrolet Camaro.
From its last instalment, the Age of Extinction, Bumblebee took in multiple forms including a 1967 Camaro and later on into a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro concept. Now, as another Transformer movie is set to hit the movie screens, people are excited to see Bumblebee in a new and improved form.
Recently, Director Michael Bays posted a photo on Twitter, the first peek of the latest Bumblebee Camaro for the “Transformers: The Last Knight”. It looks like Bumblebee will soon take on the form of a sixth-generation Camaro – a Chevrolet Camaro 1LE that was first unveiled at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show.
The car will still feature the same signature yellow paint that is distinctly Bumblebee. As what we’ve seen on Michael Bay’s post, the new Bumblebee will have a new body kit as well as a bold front spoiler. We’re just not sure about its rear spoiler though but it looks like it has got some hidden power down there. If looks could kill, then we’d expect that the all-new Bumblebee would kill it in the new instalment.
There’s only that photo that was posted for the upcoming Transformers sequel but we’re expecting that there will be more in the days to come. The Transformers: The Last Knight will hit theaters on June 23, 2017. There are also rumours that a “Bumblebee spin-off movie” will also kick off the following year (perhaps on the 8th of June 2018) to compete with the upcoming “Godzilla” sequel. Well, we will be here waiting to see how the movie would utilize the power that’s stored inside the new Bumblebee Camaro.
