    Hey guys! I work at AutoZone and we got in the signage of the Transformers The Last Knight/Valvotron/Valvoline promotion! The promotion is buy five quarts of full synthetic Valvoline motor oil and then receive the figure in the mail. Valvotron does not appear transform, from the pictures on the signs.

    I'll post pics tomorrow!

    Buy oil; get a free bonus of solidified robot-shaped oil.

    What a strange place the world is.

    It's funny that I know who you're talking about even though I have him ignored. He's that annoying. Probably posting that this is not news or newsworthy.

    I hope this is true, but the news story the site already ran made it sound like Valvotron is a contest prize, something you enter to win, not something you automatically get just for buying oil.

    Why does everyone keep saying Valvotron doesn't look like he transforms? He's got altmode kibble.

    The flyer art in the news story seems pretty clear it's a contest drawing, with 5000 Valvotrons to be given away to entrants. There's even no purchase necessary to enter. That said, 5000 units sounds about right for this promotion, and I don't think Valvotron is going to be difficult to win for those who want him.

    Wow so instead of a lucky draw as previously reported, there is another way to get one with purchase. Thanks for the news!

    Curious to see the toy!

    It is indeed both a contest at Valvoline oil change centers, and a mail away promotion when you buy five quarts of full synthetic oil at a participating AutoZone or similar store.

    As far as I know, this mail away is new information.

    At the risk of "not getting a joke" again - are you deliberately making fun of a name by mangling it, or are you questioning a name you read wrong?

    Well, if you Google Valvotron, Google suggests Vulvatron. Which was the name of a metal singer that wears... Prosthetics on her chest that shoot fake blood.

    Valvotron will never be that metal.
