People may go around in Bumblebee costumes that don’t ever “transform” or even Bumblebee edition cars, again, without any transformation. Well, this Bumblebee suit should up a whole lot of other costumes, because this one actually does transform into a car. This was probably used by some car dealership for promotion, but if Michael Bay ran out of money, you can totally expect to see this in the next Transformers movie.
• How the concept surfaced?
Coming out of comic books, cartoons and movies basically, ‘Transformers’ are mechanized spin-offs of our penchant to own machines and make them answer our whims and aspirations. Our fanaticism for 2007 live-action film Transformers truly depicts that we adore Autobots for their heroics and despise Decepticons for their evilness.
Besides, we saw a comprehensive advertising blitz that involved a viral marketing campaign, coordinated releases of prequel comic books, toys and books; all done to slake our hunger to see extraterrestrial beings dancing to our tunes. Now, the modern-day autobot-makers are doing the same as they make others believe that they (autobots) deserve existence… and they are very much there!
