Riding Bumblebee to school might be the coolest thing for a school kid but yes, dreams do come true just like what Elijah Britain.
Elijah Britain, from Carriere, Mississippi, a passionate fan of the popular TRANSFORMERS brand, was announced today by Hasbro, Inc. as the grand prize winner of its “Win a Ride with the AUTOBOTS” sweepstakes.
From December 16 – 18, Britain, 9, received a dream-come-true trip to Los Angeles, California where he got to ride in the actual BUMBLEBEE Chevy Camaro vehicle seen by millions of people around the world in Paramount Pictures’ blockbuster film TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON.
Britain also went on a TRANSFORMERS fan’s dream tour of Hollywood, including stops at Universal Studios Hollywood, the future home of Transformers: The Ride 3D opening this May, Paramount Pictures, Hasbro Studios and The Hub, the studio and network behind the hit animated series Transformers Prime.
In addition to the ride in the BUMBLEBEE vehicle, Britain was also greeted by the OPTIMUS PRIME truck seen in the movie on the backlot of Paramount Pictures! To round out the prize, Britain received $1,000 worth of TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON toys from Hasbro.
“The response from TRANSFORMERS fans around the country was incredibly strong for this chance to win a ride in BUMBLEBEE,” said Jeff Jackson, vice president of marketing for Hasbro. “Hasbro is excited to give Elijah Britain this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that he will cherish forever.”
