Bumblebee movie costume touring Wal-Mart toy sections now

Postby crazysteve » Sun Oct 21, 2018 11:02 am

There's a stealth Bumblebee appearance tour going on at Wal-Marts right now similar to the one last year where people in professionally made Transformer Movie costumes toured for The Last Knight. I say stealth because there's no promotion going on for it, you can't find a list of which stores he'll be at, and he shows up during school hours when it's tough for kids to get pictures with him.

So far the tour seems to have started in the southeast, like the Last Knight tour did. I expect it will make its way westward but it's hard to say because of the total lack of upcoming tour dates and locations.

**UPDATE October 23****
It looks like the tour is going to continue through next February. This is according to information posted at the Facebook profile of one of the team members currently in a van trekking northwest from New Mexico:

It looks like there are at least two teams and participating WalMarts don't get a heads up until about 24 hours before the van shows up. I recommend liking all the Facebook pages of every WalMart within 50 miles of where you live to find out if he's coming to your area. If you are lucky they'll post a heads up the night before he arrives!

**UPDATE October 24th***

According to this article it's a 1,000 store tour that started October 9th:

I will stop updating store locations now because I cannot keep up with 1,000 updates!


***UPDATE October 26***

Judging from Facebook postings, today one Bumblebee team is doing appearances in the Atlanta, Georgia area and another is visiting stores in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

One team member posted that their Bumblebee team will be visiting Denver, Colorado area stores from October 27th-31st.

Also, a video was posted by the Forsyth County news covering Bumblebee's visit to the Cumming, Georgia store on the 24th:

****UPDATE November 8****

It looks like there's three teams of Bumblebees carving out seperate sections of the US. One team will be at WalMarts in Sioux, City, Iowa tomorrow, November 9th:

Another team is currently in North Carolina, having last been spotted in Huntersville yesterday :

And I believe the third team may currently be in or around Provo, Utahbut I do not have confirmation of that. ***UPDATE*** The third team is in Greeley, Colorado as of November 8th:

Here is a map I made of locations visited so far based on Facebook postings by individuals and Wal-Marts:

I don't know if there are further visits planned to Atlanta area WalMarts or where in the area he has already visited.
