    Don't see how any of that is dismissive, Nevermore is always perfectly polite. People just don't understand.

    Ah, okay. Not the subtype of Metal I listen to, so pardon my ignorance.

    And? Just because there's alt mode kibble doesn't mean it transforms. Several people have noted that there are no transformation joints present.

    Well... I remain optimistic. Because I really want a robot that turns into a 5 quart jug of oil, not because I expect it to actually happen.

    So basically this is still the same stock image as before. :( 

    If you happen to get your hands the actual toy itself, photos will be much appreciated!

    He doesn't have very many visible joints and his legs are kibble-less. He's either a shellformer or just a non-transforming figure with a few bits slapped on to make him look like he could transform.

    Valvoline full-synthetic oil costs roughly 10 USD per quart, or 45 USD for a five quart bottle. But prices vary depending on location of store.

    Wait so this is either a contest OR pay close to $40 for it? It looks like a one step changer to me. Could be non transformation but then why would it be a "Transformer" ? Unless it was Optimus Prime, or the like, they really couldn't call it a Transformer with no character background if it didn't transform. That's my guess anyway

    1. Buy the motor oil from Walmart or any place with a 90-day return window.
    2. Snap a pic of the receipt.
    3. Return the oil.
    4. Free figure.
