As the time goes by, more and more tidbits of news from Transformers: Dark of the Moon are being grabbed at by various websites, BSC Review, being one of them.  Disclaimer:  I don’t dig that hard for the info, I just see it as it pops up on some sites I trust or follow.

Transformers 3 Bumblebee toy image cease and desist request

They pulled up some pics and to be honest, these images have to be pre-marketing test images because the packaging only says Transformers 3 and does not mention the movie’s title, Dark of the Moon.

BSC Review notes that there may be some upgraded looks coming down the pipe for the Autobots in the next movie and the toys may very well give those looks away.  Then again, if you’re like me, you get annoyed when a toy company makes a movie character look different to just sell merchandise.  When Iron Man 2 came out and then the toys, about 90% of the merchandise were fantasy-like profiles that never showed up in the movie.  SO I’d definitely suggest taking the images with a grain of salt.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon is due out in theaters just weeks before San Diego Comic Con, on July 1st, 2011.  It stars Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whitely (Who is replacing Megan Fox), Josh Duhamel, Hugo Weaving, Patrick Dempsey, Alan Tudyk and so many more.  Michael Bay directs.

IN place of the ill-begotten images I thought I’d place some other images of the Transformers Autobot Bumblebee in their place:

Bumblebee Autobot from Transformers

Bumblebee Camaro from Transformers

And finally, this is a real bumblebee:

a bumblebee not from Transformers
