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's in the first post:
It doesn't transform. No noticeable hinges whatsoever.
Missed that! Thank you!
Autobots! Transform your engines!
God i still want one...
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.
Lucky you, congrats on winning! Hope others including myself win one too!
Awww that's cute!
You know, 5 quarts of oil isn't really that much, for all you US fans...
that's dope as hell. the packaging really improves it.
Wait, this doesn't even transform? Loooooooooooooooool
Congrats anyone else receive one yet from either the contest or the 5 quart deal?
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! 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?
