Next up is fan-favourite Autobot and Shia LaBeouf's faithful companion in the movie, Bumblebee, sporting a sleeker look than the first movie in the form of a yellow 2010 Camaro muscle car.

The future looks uncertain for Ironhide to return in Transformers 3 in this vehicle mode, as General Motors announced they were ceasing production of his truck's model just weeks before Revenge of the Fallen opened in cinemas at the end of June 2009.
