Because I have this asked numorous times:

"If a customer is interested in a Transformers looking model, we suggest you order Rally Yellow with the black LPO stripes. Due to a number of challenges, we do not plan to make the actual color from the Transformer movie available for production."

The biggest challenge is the cost.
The actual color on the Bumblebee cars is insanely expensive.
Those cars cost over $10,000 to paint each time.

$10,000 Bumblebee option that's only appearance changes?
It just wouldn't sell.

I know I would be, I mean I don't know anything about painting cars but what makes that yellow so hard/expensive to paint? More so then some other color say Aqua blue Metallic?
Not sure, but i think it has something to do with the pigments in the paint. Again, just a guess.

That's the exact reason. I did body work for some years and the color of Bumblebee is a one off color. The pigments, and metallics are too expensive to replicate for a machine to spray. It's one of those colors that almost has to be sprayed by hand.

It would be sweet. I would love to have one, but if all else fails I'll just paint it that way.
