First Full Look at the Bumblebee "Transformer"

So far you’ve only glimpsed Autobots and Decepticons in fleeting, as they smash their way through clips and trailers or loom in the distance of production stills. Now peek at the first detailed visage of a "Transformer" online!

It’s a close-up shot of the apparently very popular "Bumblebee" character, only he’s not in vehicle form in this pic. He’s got a face and everything! Click here to see the goods.

Seems like we’ve been talking about the flick forever, but "Transformers" is scheduled to plow into cinemas come July 4th. Needless to say it won’t have many competitors that weekend. (As of right now, the only other wide release that weekend is a Robin Williams / Mandy Moore comedy called "License to Wed.")

I know it’s obvious to even point it out at this late date, but "Transformers" marks the first collaboration between controversial director Michael Bay and universally-adored producer Steven Spielberg. That alone makes the movie worth checking out, if you ask me.

Anyway, how ’bout that Bumblebee pic?
