    It seemed like he was released, but, yeah...."hardly" sounds about right.

    Anyone know how to enter without a purchase? I can\'t find anything on their website.

    It doesn't transform. No noticeable hinges whatsoever.

    For those who want this guy and don't mind buying a little oil, my little brother just sent me this. He got the rebate form at a Fleet Farm, but this seems to provide a little more detail than other things I've noticed skimming this thread and the internets.
    Overall, it ends up being ~30 for a deluxe-size, non-transforming transformer, so it's a bit steep, but hey, premiere prices, right? XD

    If you just bought 5 quarts of oil it might cost you $30 but remember the form says that it must be full synthetic oil, that's going to run you about $45 to $75 to get an oil change in your car. Valvoline is a little on the pricy side at about $95 for a full synthetic oil change. I found a Groupon deal for full synthetic oil change at Valvoline for $47 but I think that form is saying that you can't use any other offers and would have to pay full price. I guess if you needed to get your oil changed anyways, you use full synthetic oil and you didn't mind spending a few more bucks might as well get it done at Valvoline and get this figure.

    I already change my own oil and use full synthetic, but Valvoline isn't my brand.

    I'm due for an oil change in the next week, but do I really want a toy enough to change the oil I use?

    You only have to buy the oil for the promotion, though. You don't have to pay for an oil change.

    I received Valvotron from the sweepstakes today. He's pretty dang awesome for the price of a stamp.

    I enjoy that his clamshell is the shape of an oil jug, his implied alt-mode.

    Awww that's cute!

    You know, 5 quarts of oil isn't really that much, for all you US fans...

    Ugh, mine is still "Processing," and has been since May 3rd. I called on Friday and they said it's in the final stages of processing, so hopefully it ships soon.

    Just got mine through the sweepstakes as well. I also agree not bad for the price of a stamp, or maybe I sent him two or three.
    Also if you change your own oil like I do they have Valvoline at Walmart for about 25 bucks give or take which is not bad for 5 quarts of oil and a free toy.

    I just got mine from the sweepstakes too! He's awesome! :D  He's also bigger than I thought (bigger than a deluxe).

    Did you file the rebate? Was there an actual "sweepstakes" as well?

    Did you get an email when it shipped?

    Thanks
