    looks like we transformers fans crashed their server - trying to add the toy to the basket takes you to a "page cannot be displayed" screen.

    Mine says one in cart, but I never put anything in.

    So in total this will be 45 shipped to the US huh? It's tempting, I mean I have paid similar amounts for other exclusives...

    The link still isn't working correctly? I thought I had it fixed that time. :(  I guess it's time to try and make it work properly again. :( 

    Edit--I think the link is working properly. It seems the entire Chevy website is down. I can't even bring up the page! That might be why shopping carts are still being filled.

    Edit Again--Alright, it seems that if a user heads to the site through the first link, the site automatically adds a Swerve to the shopping cart. If a user heads to the site through the second link, and uses the quick link, then the cart will remain empty. I'll try replacing the link again. :)

    Is anyone still able to make a successful order ?

    Not the most I've spent on a deluxe. Just bought Wonderfest Arcee for like, $160 or some crazy money. But that's because I am an Arcee ho.

    I might have to hunt down a UK friend to buy this for me.

    Do normally shipped items from overseas have a $50+ "administration" fee, or is that just Chevy sucking hard?

    And I do hope we get something similar state side ._.

    I've tried replacing the link, but the site still seems to be down. :(  I'll keep trying.

    Edit--I've replaced the link, but the site remains down. The main site is up, however, the quick link to Swerve has been replaced by an error message. I don't think replacing the link will help any further. It looks like they need to fix their server.

    No, it would be $95 shipped to the US. Apparently they have some "administration fee" of $50 they tack on to non-europe orders on top of the figure and shipping costs.

    Hilarous, their web server can't even handle a few transformer fans.

    I guess if the news wasn't in the front page, we might have a longer window of time to get some for ourselves...

    I'd almost be tempted to buy one be it not for that insane shipping fee. Forget it.

    Yeegads, glad I read this thread the whole way through before I purchased it. I was ready to pay a hefty shipping charge, but I didn't think it'd be a $60+ shipping charge. No thanks, maybe I'll score one at Botcon, or if we get lucky it'll appear on the U.S. Chevrolet site.

    I just placed an order. I noticed my cart had 3 items in it and when I typed in 1 and updated my cart it updated to just one item, however further into the payment process it reverted back to 3. Oh well, probably more economical this way. My total was 50 Euros so that equates to $75 or about $25 each. Not bad in my opinion.
