:"Time is running out to save the planet. If you're a fan of the 2012 Camaro Transformers Special Edition and planned to have one of your own, you must place your order by December 27th. What is your favorite feature on the Transformers Edition?"
So says Chevrolet announcing to fans that there is only few more days left to order the 2012 Chevy Camaro Transformers Special Edition."In conjunction with the release of the film, Chevrolet announces the 2012 Camaro Transformers Special Edition, which will be available in North America and several other markets around the world, including China, Japan, and parts of Europe, South America and the Middle East.
Offered on the top two trim levels — 2LT and 2SS — with the RS Appearance Package, the 2012 Transformers edition only improves upon the already immensely popular 2010 Transformers Special Edition. The 2012 Transformers look starts with a stripe design consistent with the actual Transformers: Dark of the Moon Bumblebee model: Rally Yellow exterior paint with exclusive carbon-fiber weave rally stripes that travel on each side of the hood bulge, upper horizontal front fascia surface, roof, decklid and spoiler. The Autobot® shield is incorporated throughout the design, including on the center caps of the 20″ black-painted wheels2 and embroidered into the headrests."

And finally, Chevy had this to say… “If the Transformers edition Camaro looks this good in HD, think about how tough it would look in your driveway.

We've got a new Transformers toy gallery to share with you now! This time out, we're taking a look at one of the items that's been released in Japan but has never been released elsewhere in the world. The subject of tonight's gallery update is Dark of the Moon Striker Optimus Prime
, a remold of the Revenge of the Fallen Leader Class Optimus Prime with new MechTech weapons that combine into a larger MechTech rifle and a shield. The toy also features the Dark of the Moon accurate abs from the Jetwing Optimus Prime
Of course, as far as Leader Class Optimus Prime toys go, the bar was set very high in Revenge of the Fallen with another Japan exclusive piece, Buster Optimus Prime
. When discussing this gallery with 2005 Photo Staff member SydneyY - give him mad props for the excellent pics everyone! - he explained it to me thus:After looking at Striker Optimus Prime, Buster Optimus looks very gaudy. I personally prefer the subdued grey and blue of Striker. (comparison shots at the end of the gallery) Overall he looks very realistic - he may not have the screen accurate shine like Buster, but to me, he has more character.

Online retailer Robot Kingdom has posted some in-hand images of the upcoming Transformers Prime Deluxe Vehicon Trooper
on their Facebook page
. The Vehicon is a toy that's destined to be an army builder to many - after all, they were included on the show to give the Decepticons a numbers advantage without having loads and loads of named characters! The toy is looking pretty fab in both modes, but don't take my word for it - check out the images for yourself!
TFW fun fact: The Transformers Prime Vehicon toy is the last toy to be designed by the greatly respected Hasbro design team member Eric Siebenaler. It's a far cry from his first Transformers work, Armada Laserbeak
. Those are the bookends if you want to own the first and the last.Read Replies (0)
