Aug. 18--Bumblebee, Sideswipe, Megatron and Rollbar -- the stars of the billion-dollar blockbuster franchise "Transformers" -- will be on exhibit at the America On Wheels Museum in Allentown starting Sept. 9.

"The Cars from Transformers" will mark the first time the cars have been joined in a museum exhibit, said Linda Merkel, museum director. They will be on display through Dec. 31.

Megatron, a Mack truck built for "Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon," had been on display at the museum in another exhibit of movie and TV cars in 2012.

The other cars are from General Motors. They are Bumblebee, a yellow 2014 Chevrolet Camaro concept car seen in "Transformers: Age of Extinction," Rollbar, a 2013 Sonic RS Rally from "Transformers: Age of Extinction," and Sideswipe, a 50th anniversary Corvette Stingray concept car from "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen."

An opening battle sequence for "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" was filmed in 2008 at SteelStacks in south Bethlehem, with a backdrop of the rusting Bethlehem Steel blast furnaces.

The exhibit was curated by Ed Welburn, an America On Wheels board member and retired General Motors vice president of Global Design. Bumblebee, Sideswipe and Rollbar were designed under his leadership.

"The vehicles in 'Transformers' often give viewers a glimpse into the future of automotive design through concept vehicles," Welburn said in a news release. "With the release of 'Transformers: The Last Knight' this summer, the exhibit is a great opportunity for fans to revisit some of the most iconic vehicles from the franchise."

Michael Bay has directed five "Transformers" movies that have generated more than $4 billion at the box office worldwide. The science fiction/action movies are about warring groups of robots that can transform into vehicles. The Transformers franchise started as a line of toys in the 1980s.

Museum visitors will be able to see the vehicles and learn about the development processes of each model. Special photo opportunities will be available during the exhibit's run.

"The museum is excited to host automotive and film enthusiasts from across generations to celebrate the iconic, pop-culture vehicles of 'Transformers,' " Merkel said in the release. "This collection further diversifies the museum's vehicle collection, which spans six generations and includes more than 50 vehicles and numerous historical artifacts."

America On Wheels, located at 5 N. Front St., presents a history of over-the-road transportation, with bicycles, motorcycles, automobiles and trucks. For more information, see www.americaonwheels.org.
