    Seeing as the wrong thread was deleted, can a Mod correct the name in the title?

    Thanks.

    Interesting. One in red, one in yellow - perhaps only the one is exclusive, the other a mainline release?

    That would be fan-freaking-tastic. That mold looks awesom and I'd love to have it.

    It's Hasbro though, no releasing anything remotely similar and their Bumblebee is sacred at this point. So no yellow. And the red one would look exactly like Swindle so I doubt that as well. Maybe this is part of the promotion, different colors of the figure so each is rarer. Or maybe the yellow one is the one being released for the promotion in the US and the red is for China only.

    Though if that yellow is just a proto... some taxi cab deco would look very nice for a US retail figure. Seeing figures like Cliffjumper and Swindle I realize they wouldn't make a mainline figure that's so plain in deco.

    Enter teh Hubcap!

    I would never in a million years buy an Aveo in real life, but I loves me some real-world alt-modes and that figure is awesome in that respect, bot mode already indeniably so. Here's hoping one of these gets a wide release stateside..though I prefer the red m'self.

    I call shenanigans here. That looks totally painted to me, and the dude's desktop is covered in overspray too. If you look carefully at some of the pics, it appears that the interiors of the plastic parts are white... so it's not molded in yellow. The white is probably a primer.

    ALSO, if you look at the reverse side of the clear plastic bits (like the car doors), you'll see that the colour on the other side is red... which means that he just painted the yellow over the existing red (rather than stripping the red paint off the clear parts first).

    If it's a custom, that might also account for the jacked-up price tag. Looks like a nice paint job too.

    I'd guess there will be multiple colors available in the promotion with Chevrolet... whatever shape that takes on.

    And later, like a year from now, you know when Universe/Classics 2.0 will be released, then there will be some form of this as a retail release.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.......

    Hubcap? I dunno. Just seems rather coincidental that we first see Swerve in his Universe/Classics form, and then a couple weeks later we see him in yellow.

    Probably Hubcap, but I could be wrong.

    Or it could be a kitbash. :p

    I'd love a version of this mold if it's widely released. I don't see why it couldn't be included in the Allspark Power line next spring. Looks ready to go. It beats security guard Barricade and Red Skull Cliffjumper repaints.

    Good catch, that's a big telling point... stance changing here, it might be fake after all.

    Wouldn't it be awesome if this guy was available in tons of colors, but still only a bonus if you buy the car. It would drive the completests crazy. BTW I want one but only if it general release, any color is fine. Blue would be cool though

    If you look at these two pics, you can clearly see the red the was originally on the car....it shows thru the backsides of the doors.....if it were a true yellow, you would see yellow there, not red.

    In this pic....at the bottom of the legs...(plate area on the left leg and right above the foot on the right leg) you can see a smidgen of red showing thru the yellow

    So, I call nice paint job at most.....JMO

    I hope it's a mainline release as well. That thing is nice, and just cries out for kit bashing.

    And he STILL looks like the citroen dancing robot car. xD


    See what I mean?
