To help kick off the DVD release of the Transformers, Paramount is rolling out the life sized model of Bumblebee and erecting him in the courtyard of the West Hollywood Gateway shopping center at the corner of La Brea and Santa Monica Blvd. Stop by and get your picture taken, or just marvel at what someone can do with a bunch of car parts, a forklift, a 10-ton crane and lots of money.

Bumblebee will be on location from today (October 16) until Sunday October 21st.

    As a fervent Transformer fan, I was at my local Best Buy at 9:58am to get my hands on the robot fighting goodness … despite the fact that there will be another version of this DVD out in another 8-12 months. When I saw that Bumblebee would be making an appearance today, it again made me hate living on the East Coast.

    Are they going to have water piped in so Bumblebe can give lucky guests the Cybertronian “Golden Shower?”

    Bumblebee really kicked ass in that movie. I would love to see that thing. I did see the Aliens load lifter at a museum with a lifesize model of the Alien queen in its claws that was cool. But BB would be an amazing thing to see.
