    Probably just a rumor, but my source seems reliable with TFTM2 information as of yet. He mentioned to me last night on MSN that Hasbro will be using The exclusive Cheyv Aveo "swerve" mold for a figure for the upcoming sequel. - Not a particular character, but a figure for the toy line...

    Anyone else heard this?

    Maybe those rights are one of the things they had to sell/give up to qualify for the Federal bailout. You know... private jets, executive bonuses, exclusive rights to toy robot figures... :p

    It's a great looking toy that deserves a mass release.

    That has never been confirmed actually.

    What HAS been confirmed is that Swerve was briefly abvailable from the Chevy online store earlier this year, shipping from Switzerland or the United Arab Emirates, oddly enough.

    It has been confirmed. Not all the Swerves that surfaced on Ebay were production samples, some were coming straight from the promo.

    Who confirmed it?

    I asked several Chinese fans, and none were able to turn up any conclusive information.

    Because YOU didn't get the info doesn't mean it's not fact. :)  The one I got was a sample but two of my friends (well, not "friends" per say, more "transfans") got theirs from a Chinese fan who actually test drove Aveos in different dealerships to obtain them.

    Well, Chevy needs all the money it can get right now (Bankruptcy looming) and selling some toys is at least some income lol.

    That would be kinda cool, as the mold looks at least decent. If it was produced in mostly white coloring I'd buy at least two of them, and then kitbash them into Jazz and Ricochet. If not in white, I'd still probably do it, lol. It'd be even better if they produced it in white and then repainted it black at some point. That way all I'd really have to do is mod the heads, add some details (like Autobot logos and robot details), and add the stripes/flames to them.
