Yesterday it was brought to our attention that there would be a new Chevy promotion involving a certain exclusive toy, 'Universe Swerve', a seemingly brand new mold, similar in size to a deluxe with Alternator type realness.

Today, Doctor Paragon shares with us the first eBay auction for this seemingly rare toy with plenty of new pictures to share.

Check out the auction here and then come and discuss your hopes with the rest of us, that this will be part of the new UNIVERSE line at some point, and not just a Chevy promotional toy.

Will this become one of the most desired U.S. exclusives around? We'll let you know in the Seibertron.com Toy News when we find out more about the mold, the promotion, and the possible availability of this cool toy at retail (if ever?).

It's not the rarity that makes me want it, its the fact that it's a really freaking cool looking toy. I might call up my chevy place to try and bribe them to give me one. Even $50 would be better than $10,000 :lol:

It looks seek as all hell, but such a limited avenue, even
for an exclusive. I hope this is a 'once in a blue moon' kinda
thing, and not something Hasbro is gonna make a point to do often...

I wonder if that is based on the chevy rise of the Autobots design.

Looks nice. Maybe a repaint of him will make it into the Universe line.

Don't really understand the marketing decision behind giving a way a toy with a real car purchase. I guess, you can hope the car you actually bought, can transform into a robot too :grin:


Looks pretty cool. Loving the hands.
Maybe they can repaint him into a Stunticon: Dead End anybody?

Looks like he needs to go the the body shop. The passenger side door has a pretty nasty crack in it.

When does this promo begin? I feel the urge to pester my
local Chevy Dealers...

I wouldnt be surprised if tnhis turned up in the Universe/Classics 2.0 line up as a different charecter anyway. Lets face it, they've just made a delux sized alt, I seiously cant see Hasbro spending the kindam oney they would have to spend to develop that on a toy that will be used only as a free bee for a hanful of prople who buy a car. It just wouldnt make sence.

Also if this is the kinda design style we are to be expecting for the Universe line (diddy alts), then tickle me excited.

Yeah, but it's listed in "mint condition" so that's probably just some shopping cart battle damage.

so this is possibly one of the new universe (classics 2 toys)? i wonder if thats the final colors? If it is to be also a classics 2 mould i wonder who and if thats going to be the final head. eitherway thats one sweet TF, like a simplified binaltech BUT with great looking legs! that really demonstrates what i imagine a real gen 1 update could be, a nicer looking and more elegant toy than those in the movie line.

Wasnt there a Monte Carlo SS Autobot in the Rise of the Autobots game?

It's a shame, because that is a pretty damn sweet mold. That could easily be used like classics BB and CJ to make minibots to fit in with the Alternators line.

Hopefully we will see this in Universe with a new head sculpt.

I like the head sculpt... Looks like Robocop..

I asked my Dad about this yesterday, who is a salesman at a Chevy dealership in Grand Blanc, MI (Al Serra). He said that he thinks the figures are being mailed directly to the customers so they won't actually be receiving stock at the store. He thinks he might be able to snag me one somehow for the galleries on the site, but we'll see.

Here's hoping this will be released in the Universe Line in due course. Stupid to have this as a giveaway if you buy and Aveo. Makes no sense Hasbro.

$122?! holy shit dude. I may have to call up a chevy dealer and see if i can some how get one. Now if i were to get one i would have to decide to keep it or put it on ebay. If i sell it i can pay my cable bill and if i keep it i have a rare figure.

I'd guess Hasbro wouldn't waste the mold. We'll probably see it repainted as a more common release. I'll buy that version.
