    My son is anxiously awaiting the new Bumblebee Movie (Decememer 1, 2018)


    Bumblebee is his favorite, and he is usually jacked everytime he realizes it is a chevy. Well, bumblebee is going back to his Volkswagen Bettle days (mom's 73 super beetle is probably going to get painted yellow and sport a Transformer logo)

    But even better the Decepticon that is after him is Going to be a 1971PLYMOUTH GTX!!!

    Can't wait for this movie.

    Everytime my son sees a yellow and black challenger and now especially the Demon, he wants to know why that can't be Bumblebee.

    Anyone that can add pics to this thread would be great.
    Anyone that knows of other Mopar transformers I would like to have that info as the New movies don't tread to far from cheby.

    Thanks.

    Thanks, I can never get anything to show up right.

    I just find my son saying why isn't the Demon a Transformer, and I think the Challenger and Charger, Ram Rebel, Trackhawk, Wrangler and Renegade would make cool Transformers.

    I mean, Jeep were able to get a Renegade into "Batman V Superman."

    Then again... I don't think Mr. Wayne would be driving something as affordable and Ill-suited (to his character) as a Renegade. A black 300S with the Sport Appearance Package would've been much better for him :D

    TV Shows like Breaking Bad, NCIS, NCIS LA, Blue Bloods all featured Mopars...

    Interesting. For a generation of youngsters, "Bumblebee" has always been a yellow Camaro.

    Transformers hasn’t been exclusively GM. There were other vehicles too like a Mustang in the first movie and some exotics in the other movies.

    Thanks @redriderbob. Those sure are cool. WishING I had posted about this before Christmas shopping started. My son recieved alot of Transformers from Santa, and these would have been awesome.

    Monster trucks was a good movie and showcased Mopar trucks well.

    It is pretty eye opening how much Mopar vehicles have been in over the years and their increased presence always helps making the cost of movies worth it.

    Not Transformers related, but our 3 year old twins have an assortment of Matchbox cars and Hot Wheels, and the one that they typically fight over is an Orange Challenger. They each refer to it as “my car”. They got some more cars for Christmas, and a Charger police car was included...it’s now a favorite too. And my wife got me an RC Wrangler...which my son tried very hard to confiscate for his own. And to top it all off, this morning I got my daughter to say “Mopar or no car”. Who said having kids can’t be fun?? :p:D
