No, not our commenter — the Autobot named Bumblebee. Our fave fan site all about the 'formers hipped us to new pictures of a transformed 70's Camaro version of the yellow-n-black bot. I'm not yet thrilled as it's not the new concept Camaro version from later in the movie and we're actually curious as to where the rest of the car went post-transformation. But despite my lack of exuberance over this toy, there's some other news from TFW2005 that makes up for it. Unfortunately, it's only for olks over in the UK. We've heard they should be expecting to see:
"a Transformers Movie slot car racing set! UK slot car manufacturing company, Scalextric, is set to launch this product in June...the set will feature Transformers Bumblebee and Decepticon Barricade from the new movie and allow you to transform the cars to reveal the robots. Out early in June and costing
40, Scalextric is hoping to storm kids and adults bedrooms in time for the July 4 film release."
That means we'll finally be able to have a race between a Saleen Camaro and a Saleen Mustang. Oh joy of joys! Now if we can just drop a "Saleen" Challenger into the mix, we'll have ourselves some real muscle car wars...at 1:64 scale. But whatevs, beggars can't be choosers. Check out the full Bumblebee toy gallery below, and keep your eyes on our Transformers tag and gallery for any up-to-the-minute news on the new movie as we hear it.
