The Chevrolet Camaro Concept will star in the forthcoming “Transformers” movie, which is due for release on July 4th, 2007 (07-04-07). The film — which was first announced last year — is a collaboration between Paramount, DreamWorks, and Hasbro. Apparently, “Bumblebee” is going to start out as a 1970s Camaro, and then be rebuilt as a 2008/2009 Camaro. Meanwhile, “Starscream” is going to be an F-22 Raptor, and “Optimus Prime” is going to be a fire truck. Judging by the license plate on the new Camaro, tuner Saleen also has involvement with the project. A Saleen Mustang police car will also appear in the film.

Awesome... 8)

Saleen Camaro?

That's a first...

“Optimus Prime” is going to be a fire truck.

Hope that's a mistake. Any other Transformer can change models, but Optimus as anything but a red cab-over rig is just wrong.

I couldn't agree with you more.

However, I think it would be difficult to change Soundwave or Megatron. Those three need to remain true to the gen-1/series-1 standard.

Besides, didn't the Autobots already have a fire truck in the 1st gen/Series... called Inferno? I know that they added another fire engine later on who was the leader of the Protectobots: Hotspot. (However, Hotspot & Inferno transformed completely different from each other.)

Either way, the Camaro looks bad-ass as always! :ohyeah:

So the first picture pulled up on a Google image search of Transformers movie 2007 is a covered red semi. Hopefully the writer just can't tell one type of big red truck from another.

And yes, there was a first generation firetruck called Inferno (I have him, along with Optimus Prime, and Ultra Magnus, and Grimlock, and the Aerialbots...) I can't help but say that the Camaro looks awesome, but I still think that Bumblebee should be a bug... I could see Megatron as a tank because he was one in the 2nd generation comic and toys (best friend who lived across the street from me had him, we had transformers wars all the time).
