The Cars of “Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen”

Critics have panned the new Transformers movie, but box-office receipts already total over $200 million, which is proof that folks love the giant transforming Chevrolets.

Here’s a list of the GM Transformers and their availability (just in case you want to park an autobot in your garage!):

Chevy Volt: Jolt

chevy-volt-jolt-transformers-2

Prototypes of the electric Volt are starting to turn up, and it looks like we could see a 2011 release. By the time it’s available, though, hype generated from the movie will be long gone.

Chevy Camaro: Bumblebee

Put your order in now! Chevy has already received 10,000 orders in front of yours, but the Camaro was the best selling American muscle car last month. Order one, and you will get it.

Chevy Stingray Concept: Sideswipe

It’s doubtful anyone will ever get their right foot onto the accelerator pedal of this hot concept… it was built just for the movie. This split-window hottie is one of the coolest concepts to ever carry the Chevy name, but it’ll remain a fantasy.

Chevy Trax: Mudflap

In the movie, Mudflap and Skidz are horribly unfortunate stereotypes. In the real world, the Trax is a concept that made the auto show rounds along with the Beat and the Groove. The closest America will get anytime soon is a 2011 Chevy Spark.

Chevy Beat: Skidz

This Beat is the second half of the putrid and offensive robot twins. Again, you’ll have to settle for the Spark if you want to buy one. Let’s hope the production version isn’t as offensive as the movie twins….

GMC Topkick: Ironhide

Ironhide is perhaps the toughest of the autobots, but the Topkick and Chevy’s Kodiak will cease production at the end of this month.  The good news is that you can find used ones all over the Internet!

What about the real star of the show? Well, Megan Fox isn’t available for purchase. Ok, okay… the real star….

Optimus Prime

He’s been a Transformers fixture since I was a kid, and lucky for us he’s remained the same through the years: Optimus is none other than a mid-’80s Peterbilt.

Have you seen the new Transformers movie? Which car would you want parked in your garage?

    Well…. Just so YOU know: Prime is a Peterbilt Model 379 in the movie.

    However he’s identified as a Kenworth W900 in merchandises related to the movie, like the video game and the toy.

    @heath thomas just to let you know, despite the fact it may not be SOLD to the public, there’s still a few out there for people to own. a guy who lives in my neighborhood drives one. dont know how he got his hand on it, but i definitely have to try really hard to keep my eyes on the road when that one passes..
