All four Bumblebee Camaros from the Transformers film franchise will cross the auction block at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale this weekend.

Chevrolet will offer four of the Bumblebee Camaros, as seen in the movies.

There's just one catch: the cars must be sold together, and they're likely to fetch a hefty price.

Because the cars are a collection from a movie series, they're more valuable in the collector world as a set than they would be individually, according to Sean Finegan with Chevrolet.

"To the true collector, to have all four of them is the right way to do it," Finegan said.

The cars will be soldwith no reserve, so there's no anticipated sales price, but proceeds will benefit Operation Homefront, a national non-profit that aims to build strong, stable and secure military families. The cars are slated for auction Jan. 19.

Among the four is the original Camaro Bumblebee, which debuted in the first "Transformers" movie in 2007 and then was modified for the sequel, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen."

The others in the collection are:

  • 2010 Camaro from "Transformers: Dark of the Moon."
  • 2013 Camaro from "Transformers: Age of Extinction."
  • 2016 Camaro from "Transformers: The Last Knight."
