    And a usual, people outside the US are screwed. Though at least there's a good reason for this one, but still.

    Valvoline SynPower Full Synthetic 10w30 Motor Oil 5 qt......22.97 at WalMart. Add in an oil filter (@$10) and maybe a new deluxe figure and it ships free. Then you get an oil change, and two figures for about 40 bucks! (free shipping from walmart over 35.00) or just go in store and get the figure for 23 bucks.

    The one thing we don't have any details. It says 5 quarts but it didn't specify if you can buy a 5 quart jug or you need to buy five individual quarts. I have seen some promotions where they specifically want you to buy 5 Individual Quarts, I assume because it's more profitable for them.

    Also, i'm sure that just like Aveo Swerve, this figure will be all over eBay from China at a decent price.

    That reminds me, Aveo Swerve loses his status as the only new mold Transformers exclusive!

    Excellent point, my friend!

    I'll be tracking down Valvatron for that exact reason, so long as he's not super rare/expensive.

    RID Legion Megatronus (two-pack with Optimus Prime redeco) and Mega 5-Step Megatronus were both worldwide TRU exclusives!

    Unless you mean "absurdly exotic once in a lifetime venue exclusive".

    The entire First Edition Prime line was TRU exclusive by those rules.

    But the intention here is an exclusive mold that didn't come from a toy line and was made specifically for a promotion not at a store that sells toys.

    The only other one I can think of is Evac. But there were rumors he'd come to regular retail as a redeco and i'm pretty sure it never actually came out, right? So that one might count to.

    Well, Evac is part of the Transformers: Universal Studios toyline together with Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. And sold at stores that sells toys, just that these stores are in Universal Studios. And Evac isn't sold on promotion, its a regular retail item for years now.

    Deluxe Evac is exclusive to Universal Studios but available to anybody to buy online at the Universal Studios online store, there is a Legion class Evac that is sold at regular retail.

    Prime First Edition started out as regular retail items, only poorly distributed, before it became TRU exclusive later.

    Aveo Swerve is really the only new mold exclusive Transformer not available via regular retail, until Valvotron that is. Why did Hasbro allow a new mold exclusive again for somebody other than Chevy? My guess is this toy is not developed by Hasbro, but independently sourced by Valvoline for their own promotion purposes but officially endorsed by Hasbro due to their licensing.

    PS: thinking about it now, strictly speaking, Evac is the 2nd new mold exclusive. Because I think although he is easily bought by anyone online, at the end of the day he is exclusive to Universal Studios stores (be it in their park or their online shop).

    So the list of new mold exclusive Transformers:
    1. Aveo Swerve (exclusive via Chevy)
    2. Deluxe Evac (exclusive via Universal Studios)
    3. Valvotron (exclusive via Valvoline)

    it's a promotion to buy the oil, not steal from the company. Does it affect me, no, but it's still unethical.

    Unless this thing transforms, I don't know if I can justify dropping $22 for a bottle of oil.

    Furthermore, if the plastic Transformers are made of contains oil, and this character represents a container of oil, is this oilception?
