    I was digging through a pack of coupons that had been sent to my house this morning and noticed a contest that Valvoline is running in conjunction with TLK. Looks like first prize is a trip to the movie premiere, but more interesting to me was the first place prize of "5000 Valvotron Collectible Action Figures":

    It appears to be an officially licensed non-transforming figure, but I don't recognize the mold. More details here:

    Valvoline Instant Oil Change Transformers Movie Promotion


    Lastly, official entry details w/o purchase here:

    So it's a licensed, non-transforming promotional toy? Uh, wonder if it's exclusive to their outlets?

    The waist down and the head reminds me of the old Big Looker books and Marvel comics grey headed Megatron. It's interesting that the chest is clearly a car engine and the arms look to have car parts hanging off of them. And either way, doesn't really have a Bay movie vibe to me.

    It resembled a Kronoform to me at first glance. Non-transforming murders my interest.

    Neat. A cute little figure, even if the name is a bit generic and silly.

    Arise... Valvotron.

    Yep, he transforms into a bottle of Valvoline. The right arm has the bottle spout on it.

    Valvotron? Sounds like a very naughty transformer.

    Ha, you're right. I thought the handle was a spoiler. So, a bottle alt mode with an engine chest in alt-mode. Cool.

    If it changes into an oil bottle I want one. Don't even know if there is a valvoline around here and I'm not gonna get my oil changed just for a chance to win one of these though.

    Yeah, well we have two Volts so not too many oil changes here either. That being said, I added details for the "no purchase necessary" entry to my original post. :)
