There was more than meets the eye in Sterling on Wednesday when a bigger-than-life-sized Transformer dropped by for a visit. Kids got a chance to meet Bumblebee, the star of an upcoming movie that’ll be released Dec. 21, during a visit to Walmart. The movie follows the Autobot’s adventures as he seeks refuge in a junkyard in a small California beach town and is befriended by a teen trying to find her place in the world.
