Bumblebee: The Movie
Bumblebee: The Movie - Official Photo & Plot Synopsis Press Release
RAC - Saturday, December 30, 2017

Paramount has sent out a press release for Bumblebee: The Movie giving a synopsis of the plot and a higher-quality version of the image that circulated the other day of Hailee Steinfeld's Charlie character and Volkswagen Beetle Bumblebee. It's a fairly barebones description of the movie, but we have final confirmation that Bumblebee is indeed a VW Bug in the film. (Toys? Hopefully?) Keep reading to see!
“On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld), on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When Charlie revives him, she quickly learns this is no ordinary, yellow VW bug.

BUMBLEBEE is produced by “TRANSFORMERS” franchise veterans Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Michael Bay, along with executive producers Steven Spielberg, Brian Goldner and Mark Vahradian. Chris Brigham (“ARGO,” “INCEPTION”) will also executive produce. The screenplay is written by Christina Hodson (“UNFORGETTABLE”).

Directed by Travis Knight (“KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS,” “CORALINE”), the film stars Hailee Steinfeld (“EDGE OF SEVENTEEN”), Pamela Adlon (“BETTER THINGS,””LOUIE”), John Cena (“DADDY’S HOME 2,” “TRAINWRECK”), Stephen Schneider (Comedy Central’s “BROAD CITY”), Jorge Lendeborg Jr. (“SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING”), Jason Drucker (“DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: THE LONG HAUL”), Kenneth Choi (“AMERICAN CRIME STORY”), Ricardo Hoyos (“DEGRASSI: NEXT CLASS”), Abby Quinn (“LANDLINE,” “THE SISTERHOOD OF THE NIGHT”), Rachel Crow (“DEIDRA & LANEY ROB A TRAIN”), and Grace Dzienny (“ZOO”).

If the information is indeed accurate - Read on to see the machine translated information below.
Ever since first hearing of it in a product info dump from a retailer computer system, the Energon Igniters line coming up as part of the general toy tie in offerings for Bumblebee: The Movie has been a big question mark - and even Toy Fair came and went without further details being revealed. Via the unexpected source of Amazon India, we have some product copy that sheds a little light on the matter. Keep reading to find out more.
Thanks to Brazilian hobby blog T-Hunted, we have an image showing off upcoming Jada die-cast car products for 2018. Among a selection of Marvel and other licensed property vehicles, a few Transformers entries can be seen, including G1-inspired vehicles for Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, along with Optimus Prime as he appeared in the earlier part of the live action movie series, and one more silhouetted Volkswagen that's almost certain to be Bumblebee as he will appear in his self-titled movie later this year. We've mirrored the image, and you can find that below with a link to the original blog post.
UK distributor abgee has posted a set of new listings on their website on the heels of UK Toy Fair! They mostly match what has gone before... with a few changes in language that seem to strengthen the case that "Stryker" is indeed this movie's codename for Bumblebee. Also, we've got listings for a new Studio Series Voyager figure codenamed "Destroyer." Keep reading for details!
2005 forums member catz has posted a set of product listings for Hasbro's 2018 offerings! Among the more expected things like the Power of the Primes Titan Class figure (Predaking) are a number of new items, including a new Movie Masterpiece figure, and as-yet unknown items like the previously rumored "Energon Igniters" as well as some Generations item referred to as "Project Storm" - which is said to be a very small item such as perhaps a blind-bag series. Fingers crossed for blind-bagged Titan Masters at least, but meanwhile keep reading for the list!
