"Bumblebee" Camaro (6-Wide SC Minifig Scale)
A pair of Camaros in "Bumblebee" design, based on the Speed Champions model. - Autobots, Roll Out...
About this creation
My little son is a big fan of the "Speed Champions" cars and also of the "Bumblebee" Camaro. So I started building a yellow Camaro based on the parts from a 75870 Corvette and the design of the red Camaro from set 75874.

As I'm not a fan of stickers on my models I had to find a new design for the head- and taillights. Once started I reworked the whole design of the Camaro here and there to make it look more like the Bumblebee model from "Revenge of the Fallen".







After building one for my son, I wanted one for myself, too. So I bought another Corvette and built a second one ;-))
This is the result:





Almost equal twins, but if you take a look closer look, ...















Autobots, Roll Out! :-))

You saw that coming, didn't you? ;-))

My top design priority for the robot was a mostly unchanged look in car mode. I especially wanted to use the SC wheelhouses and wheels, which occupy a rather big space of the model (especially compared to "Deluxe" figures of the movie Bumblebee). So there wasn't much space left between outer shell and wheels for the folding mechanism.



I’m really satisfied with the look of the robot, even if it looks a little like a "Hulkbuster" ;-))



The folding mechanism was first based on the smaller „Movie Legend“ figures and then became a little more complex during the design process. I also tried to include a folding mechanism for the rear roof section similar to the „Deluxe“ figures, but it was too fragile. So I left the roof in it’s place and used it as a „turtle shell“ for the back of the robot.



So, this is my transformable LEGO „Bumblebee“ Camaro in „Speed Champions“ scale and look.
I hope you like it :-))

(Add transformation sound here...)

Surprise, surprise:
My first MOC in the Top4 of "Across MOCpages"

P.S.: I (mis)used my son's Camaro as a prototype to test some folding roof designs. After that I forgot to put the seat and the Minifig driver back into the car. With that it is a "normal" Speed Champions model. The interior is still "carry over" from the original 75870 Corvette.

Absolutely amazing. I had to go back and check this out again after you stopped by. The non-transforming car looks great as it is, really awesome techniques used, but the transformer blows me away, especially since it contains all the transforming parts. Awesome work! :-)

Fantastic work! Amazing how you were able to get a transformer out of a 6 wide good looking Camaro. Did not expect that at all.

That is very good for making a transformer that is big and doesn't need to be taken apart.

Speed Kings are just fun. I bought the Mustang the other day still trying to figure how best to modify it. The range is just great. Cool Bumblebee.

Das war mir so klar dass das nicht einfach nur ein Camaro ist ;) Fantastic work my friend! Was really surprised after I scrolled down and noticed the "transformation" :) Really cool work! Btw, Julia, my girlfriend, is a big fan of Bumblebee too.

Thought it was rather awesome, maybe a bit basic, then the transformer mode came and you had me amazed. Great work!
