With the Transformers Bumblebee movie coming in just one month (to the day), the marketting campaign is picking up some major steam. Bumblebee, in his film look, is appearing in as many places as possible. He was part of the Toronto Santa Claus parade in both his robot and car mode on a float.

Bumblebee will also be part of next month's loot crate along with merchandize from Dungeons and Dragons, Fallout and more (all in th same crate).

In more car related news, Bumblebee is part of Gamestop's advertizing on Christopher Bell's NASCAR racecar. He even included a video of the new adverts being applied to the car which you can see here.

Lastly, we have not one but two Bumblebee related books now on Amazon for anyone to purchase.
There is the Junior Novel and the Passport to Reading Level 2 book A New Car for Charlie.

LootCrates are 50% off right now including half off the shipping making the crate only $12.50 plus tax. Worth taking a chance.

At 0:19 this is either his version with Cybertronian alt mode parts or a third Earth based alt mode in this movie.



*EDIT:
Somebody in the comments section told me IT IS his Cybertronian form.

Fellow Seibertronian Lunatic Prime has posted an new international trailer/TV Spot for the upcoming Bumblebee movie which show us a new shot of the titular character in a new form. It appears to be Cybertronian, similar to the hologram we see Shatter show John Cena in previous trailers.
Let us know what you think and how that would fit within the film, especially since we already know he is a Jeep before turning into a Beetle.

Also we have the original Bumblebee trailer rendered in Play-Doh. It is available on both youtube and Facebook.

A big part of the anticipation for the upcoming Bumblebee film is the Generation One inspired designs and sequences. Paramount is well aware of this fan pleasing change to the designs and have made a feature for us. We see many cast members, the director and designers talk of Generation One designs and wanting to make these characters more remenescent of the design 80s fans are more familiar with. We get nice 360 shots of both Optimus Prime and Bumblebee as well as new shots of the Cybertron sequnce featuring Optimus Prime, in a shot very similar to his heroic jump in the 86 Transformers film.

With the release of the live action Transformers Bumblebee movie now just a few weeks away, more and more merchandise has appeared on shop shelves! We have a run down of the latest ones here.

Official Transformers Bumblebee movie Colouring, Puzzle and Paper craft pages.

Courtesy of the Singapore transformers fan group, Planet Iacon's Facebook page, we have new images to share. These take the form of colouring, puzzle and Papercraft pages. While it's unknown at this pont what these are off, no doubt we'll find out soon enough. The pages consists of drawings of the principal cast of the film, Bumblebee, Charlie and antagonists Shatter and Dropkick. The papercraft models are of the same, sans Charlie.

We have mirrored the images below for your convenience.

Men's T Shirts and Transformers Bumblebee Movie Merchandise Display

This news comes across courtesy of fellow Transformers fan site TFW2005, where a member of their forums snapped this while out. The display was found at a Kroger in Ft. Wayne, Indian. The display is for different Bumblebee themed clothing such as t-shirts and pants. In the original post, prices were mentioned as being $15 for pants and $10 for the t-shirts but there was a possibility of a sale on them as each item was originally marked down from double that price.

The calendar features various pictures of Bumblebee and villain Dropkick, who is only seen with his muscle car alt mode kibble.

The calendar was found in Go! Calendars & Games store in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and was retailing for $15.

Here is a massive spoiler, Bumblebee has a speaking role in the movie. While he will be beeping and buzzing throughout most of it, it seems he will be speaking at some aprts, like in the begining or on the Cybertron sequence. Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura spoke with IGN to reveal this exclusive info, also confirming that Bumblebee's mythology is being reset with this film.

"Since we were approaching this as an origin story, we felt that it was appropriate that you got to hear his voice," di Bonaventura said of the character who thus far has only been able to communicate using existing media. "That’s the simple logic that we employed. The longer term implication of that is different. But the short-term implication of that is, since we really are resetting the mythology, essentially, of who Bumblebee is. And so, that seemed to us to be the appropriate, to get the chance to hear what he sounds like."


The voice actor in question will be Dylan O'Brien from Maze Runner and Teen Wolf. Here is what di Bonaventura had to say:

"Dylan has that great quality in his voice of youthful exuberance, and also sort of trustworthiness," the producer explained. "I think those are the two qualities that we wanted Bumblebee to have."
"Thankfully, we’ve showed it to a few audiences, and people seem to think that it’d be right and an appropriate voice," he said. "You never know, obviously that can be a sensitive thing for people. But it turns out, they imagine his voice that way."

*sigh*

You know, regardless of all the inconsistencies we get across the films, with someone like Bumblebee being as big a deal as he is in these movies, one would think that they'd be able to keep his voice about as consistent as the movies' other big deal Autobot, Optimus Prime.

We got Mark Ryan for Movie 1 and ROTF (in a deleted scene), no one in DOTM and AOE, and then Erik Aadahl in TLK. And now, we get a third voice in Dylan O'Brien for this movie.

I know, I KNOW! Voice changes in these movies are nothing new (Hugo Weaving to Frank Welker for Megatron, Sideswipe's two voices, etc.). But it's BUMBLEBEE. The biggest robot name in these movies besides Optimus, whose been consistently Peter Cullen across all of these films. Even some of the lesser Autobots like Ironhide, Ratchet, Wheelie, Brains, Hound, Crosshairs, and Drift have all kept consistency in their voices.

Ratchet alone remained voiced by Robert Foxworth across FOUR movies and he's hardly been any bit of noteworthy as a character in these films.

All I'm saying is, can't they just pick one single definitive voice for the biggest Autobot star of these movies and stick with him for any time that he needs to speak onscreen?

By the time they are done with him he will have more voice actors than people who have played 007...

Also, that IGN article...

After years of being unable to talk, Bumblebee will finally speak in his upcoming spinoff
IGN chatted with Transformers franchise producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura last week about... why it was necessary for the film to finally give the Transformer his own voice.
the character who thus far has only been able to communicate using existing media.
This movie will be the first time Bumblebee's voice is depicted in the live action films.
Yeesh, someone sure didn't do their homework for this.

Maybe because Bumblebee has a youthful voice? I dunno.

While I understand your point both of the other voice actors would absolutely not work for this version of Bumblebee because...

A:This is a prequel and he's younger here and designed to be cuter which neither Ryan or Erik's voices are

B: This movie regardless of whether it's a reboot or not is a new direction so why would the new director pick either of those guys?


Erik's lines weren't even intended to be the final Bee for Tlk in the first place but Bay liked the performance enough despite it being pretty mediocre, thank God they didn't go for him.


Ryan works as broken vocal cords older Bee which he isn't going to be either of those things at the start of the film he wouldn't have worked.

they're resetting Bumblebee's mythology, basically revealing that the movie is a reboot, so 'a robot that's been around for millions of years fighting' is invalid now.

I still think that they are waiting to see how this movie performs before fully conmiting themselves to a reboot now. If it doesn't do well, its just got enough links to the 07 movie to act like a prequel. If it does well, then the next film will be the one to fully break from the old continuity. We shall see.

On that note why is Bumblebee still considered young if he's millions of years old?

Why hasn't he matured in all of those years until that 30 year gap and then the years of the movies?

These are more reasons why the "million year war" will never stop being the single biggest worse concept the franchise has come up with, it both disregards the passage of time and makes stories even more contrived when they get to Earth because suddenly in a few years the status quo drastically changes.

How do you wage war for millions of years and never get anywhere? That's ignoring the wars that came before which would mean that the Cybertronian history is longer then existence.
