This past weekend we first reported about the first images of a red Chevy Aveo named Swerve being released. At that time not much about the figure was known. Since that time we have learned the figure was released as part of a promotion in China. Now it appears, that we have a new mystery reguarding the Chevy Aveo Transfromer. Ebay seller no_cd has posted an auction for a Yellow Aveo Transformer. Not much is known about the figure at this time. Stay tunned to the Seibertron.com Toy Section for the latest news about this figure. Here are the mirrored images:

It's CLASSICS Sideswipe and Sunstreaker! I'm kidding, but that is an interesting thing to ponder. Perhaps there are different colored batch versions for them to give away.

ARGH! The yellow should have been the give away and make red Swerve the general release!

Bee per chance?

Gotta second Burn on that though.

It's just a fan-repaint. You can see the original red on the inside of the car doors.

I'd be more interested if it was a car other than that Aveo (cringe).

I'd have to second Cyber-Kun, I can see red through the back of the doors.
I'd take the fact that the yellow car is parked over an instruction booklet with SWERVE on it as a clue that it's just a repaint, tho a damn good looking one.

OR its still factory repaint and they were too lazy to paint the inside. If it was a fan repaint and they took the time repaint the whole car yellow, even the other nterior panels why would they leave the doors red under the window plastic?

Maybe it's Universe Bumblejumper in red and yellow?

It is a repaint, but its an official Hasbro repaint. The red you see is simply the fact that the *plastic* was red, and then was repainted in the factory. Its like with the windows on Hasbro's `74 Movie Bumblebee: The plastic is yellow, and shows yellow on the inside, but the outside is painted blue.

The red everyone sees looks more like the tinted windows. It looks like translucent tint plastic on top of the yellow solid plastic. It's still an Aveo, I wouldn't pay the prices paople are paying on ebay for them.

I'm thinking that with some head swapping, these could be Alt Bumbles and Alt CJ.

Either this is a prototype or it could be a mass release. But then again there may be other colored ones for the promotion.

"!!!" may be a bit of an understatement!

So I agree, WOW, expensive, but WOW non the less!

Has anyone else mentioned that these looked way too clunky to be considered Alternators? These look so much like the Classic line that it is not funny.

sweet, looks awesome! however, hasbro should seriously quit it with the exclusives and release stuff for everyone to have.... at least have the molds available for everyone and repaints made as exclusives.

Given that Swerve was released as an exclusive in China, is it Hasbro's doing or TakaraTomy?

whoever is in charge, quit releasing products at a certain part of the world and letting it be an exclusive to them only. rather let it be available to everyone else in the world. does anyone see a hint of racism here? letting a certain group have a certain product and yet, not releasing it to others.

Okay that's just ridiculous.

Did you ever stop to consider that the car company forked out a LOT of money for this figure to be produced solely for this promotion?

Or are you happy to sit there and believe that the lack of TF figures that haven't made it to the UK in the last few years is also racist?
Re: Yellow Aveo Transformer Images (329487)
Posted by Scaleface on September 7th, 2007 @ 8:37am CDT
More nationalist than racist. Only Chinese get Universe Swerve. Only Americans get Classic Skywarp, only Europeans get Thunderclash.

Thankfully no one ever told me "hey, you're a Pole! No Skywarp for you!" That would suck.

If you look at the auction for the red one, there is a bagged photo and it says 2007 Hasbo, Pawtucket Rhode Island.

I'm gonna say fan repaint too... why the heck would Hasbro use yellow paint to go over an ENTIRE toy, when they could just use yellow plastic instead?

With this being a limited run they may have just made them all and then split 50/50 on red and yellow

You know, that whole G2 Euro line thing with the Predators and Turbomasters and friends, wasn't really European only, they were released in Australia.

Over released at that. Anyone want a Stalker? I think every bloody koala is swinging from a tree with one. :P

Interesting.
Dont know about anyone else, but I'm a tad over bright yellow car transformers at the moment... Bumblebee overkill.

Still it's not a bad looking colour on that mold.

Just wanna second this, making exclusives readily availible makes them no longer exclusive.

I'm going through all my GM contacts to try and score one of these with no luck, and if it stayes that way, no big deal. And trust me, I work for US car dealers, if you showed up and test drove a car just for a figure, they'd rather burn it than give it to you!

That is of course assuming they didn't just toss out the box, keep them for their kids, or give them to me(I got so much GM Dealership swag this summer)

Still, it's a random transforming character, if it came from a line like RoadBots, I don't think anyone would care.

It is a unique mold, but it's still just a figure with no backround or anything like that. I could see the distain over the Seekers at BotCon(nope, not gonna let it die), Those where widely hoped for and anticipated by alot of people.

But this is just a transforming car used in an overseas PR promotion.

Anyone thinking he just painted it yellow?

And why are toys like these being made exclusives? Sucks to be a completionist.

The inside of the doors is not red, it's just the yellow paint over the greenish clear plastic. Looks red but isn't red imo.
