Bumblebee Reports For Duty


One of the major stars of last summer’s blockbuster movie Transformers was snapped on the set of the new sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen which is currently shooting on the East Coast at the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, PA as well as The Smithsonian museum in Washington DC … here are a couple pics of break-out star Bumblebee (ie. 2010 Chevy Camaro Z28) snapped via spycam and posted to Jalopnik:

Last time we saw it from afar, but now we’ve got the first close-up shot of what we’re now told is a Corvette concept shot on the set of the new Transformers 2 movie, Revenge of the Fallen. The latest shot, posted to the Motown Muscle forum, comes with some degree of reliability given it comes with two new shots of the “Bumblebee” version of the 2010 Chevy Camaro Z28. That’s right, our e-mail tipster, who also posted the shots on the forum, claims not only that this is a 2010 (or 2012) Corvette concept, but also that this isn’t the “SS” Camaro, it’s the Z28. Whether this mean we’d not only get a “Super Sport” package, but also a “special performance package” via a Z28 check box remains to be seen.

UHHH … yeah, I dunno what any of that means. All I know is that the pretty yellow car will transform into a huge robot in the movie. I’m also not sure who or what the unpainted other car is. Could it be another Transformer? Could it just be an extra car shell for use in the movie? Do I have any idea what I’m talking about? Not really … but I do love Transformers so any news is good news, yes? I still wish they could’ve kept Bumblebee as a Volkswagen Beetle rather than change him into a Chevy Camaro but I guess I can’t complain. The first movie turned out great … I’m sure part 2 will be even better.

    Volkswagen Beetle can’t finance no hundred million dollar movie.

    They were also filming at Bethlehem, Pa. They had casting for oriental extras. They filmed for two days at Bethlehem Steel..with Helicopters and tanks with chinese writing on the sides. They said it’s some kind of chinese warehouse..it was very cool!
