    Wow, I think he looks awesome, especially for a freebie. I just find it odd that he has no weapon to speak of.

    Looks cool, but there appears to be a crack on the right door.

    His bot mode looks nice, but damn there are so many wide gaps on the car form make it look like a KO. It looks lke there is a crack in the door too.

    So if Hasbro don't mass produce this mold maybe this will show up as a KO if there is enough demand for it. It will be difficult to tell a genuine from a fake as well :p

    That is a neat little robot, looks very well articulated. I agree though, vehicle mode is weak.

    I think that "crack" is nothing more than a paint error.

    Don't want a Chevy, Do want the toy!

    My guess is that this mold will be released in the Classics 2.0/ Universe line. With a different head and a different color.

    I called a local dealer and he didn't know what I was talking about. I asked to speak to the lot manager. He said they received a standup marquee and that its a promotion starting in october. It will be a mailaway. BUT dealers are getting 2 for display purpouses. The manager I talked to said I can have one and took my info.

    Disclaimer: odviously take with a grain of salt. He may have been feeding me BS. And for those in columbus wanting to call and see about other one, his name is Terry at the Bobb chevy dealership.

    Thanks.

    probably because of the faces resemblance to gears..

    man do i wish this one was mass produced... maybe if we get some sort of petition going?

    i really love the look of the bot mode......... truly nice figure

    Yeah just talked to a friend of mine that works at a Chevy dealership and he has seen anything about this and has no promo stuff on it. This thing maybe real hard to get a hold of.

    I really like this figure, he'd make a nice addition to Classics 2.0 with a new headsculpt. No way I'm jumping through hoops or paying out the ass to own it, though. Maybe The Club could get the molds after the promotion.

    lol at him reading the paper.
