So while Lambo may be a subsidiary of those companies, they at least don't have any connection to WWII or Nazis. If you buy into that, then we might not be any closer to licensed MP Bumblebee or Jazz.
I think it's all just hearsay that's been repeated throughout the fandom so many times that fans just assume it's fact. If someone can point me to an official statement by Hasbro, VW, or Porsche I'd be very appreciative of seeing some factual statements instead of rumors and hearsay.
