Default Bumblebee promo world tour

Starting in two weeks time in Portugal, will be a "worldwide" promo tour for the Bumblebee Movie.
There will be scenes shown from the movie, and probably toys and activities on display... something similar to some of the earlier movies (like the NEST truck tour of America in 2007).


So far only Portugal and Spain have been announced for the first month, and we don't yet know how many countries will get this (or what it actually is, as there hasn't been an official announcement of this yet), including, will it come to Australia on its "world" tour?

The Promo Tour has begun, and with it comes a new Bumblebeee app that appears to insert the robot form of 2007 Camaro Bumblebee (and maybe other Bumblebees later), into what you are about to take a photo of.
I haven't downloaded the app, so I don't know if there is an English language option, as the sample images being shown look to be in French... but looks to be available globally, so probably does.
Links and images can be seen here, with some images that to scan to activate Bumblebee.

The promo tour is now in South Africa for the Comic Con Africa this weekend... but might be a different promo tour to the one that should still be in Europe this month.
Some nice photos of the exhibit though, with the Optimus truck and the Bumblebee VW.

A different promo tour is currently travelling around Mexico with a yellow VW, Movie toys, and games to play - pics can be seen here.

As the marketing of the Bumblebee movie ramps up, Hasbro have sent out their press boxes to American media, including to some fansite owners.
Just like the previous five movies, this one is just a big fancy box with an assortment of movie toys in it (8 different Bumblebees and a Dropkick), plus some marketing materials.

Another Promo event for the Bumblebee Movie has occurred in Los Angeles (Saturday October 13th), at the Universal Studios Citywalk precinct (the shops and restaurants outside the main gate of the themepark). Some promo info and photos from the event.

...so those Bumblebee onesies come in adult sizes? (probably not "nerd girth friendly" sizes though )
