Thanks to Seibertron's very own Professor Smooth, we have an update on the Chevrolet Universe Exclusive Swerve figure. It is not good news:

This figure will NOT be given away if you buy a Chevrolet Aveo. In fact, buying the car isn't even necessary to get the exclusive.

Its a China only Promo for the Chevrolet Lova (Aveo in the U.S.).

The idea was you go to the movie, after you go to a Chevrolet dealer with the movie ticket(s) and test drive the Lova. You get the robot for test driving the car.


There has been no mention of the Chevrolet Universe Swerve being released in any way, shape or form outside of China as yet, but Seibertron.com will keep you updated if this changes in the future.

I think the Aveo is actually made in China.

whew......well, that makes me feel better. If this were a US figure, I'd be griping that my swerve collection was in jeparody of being incomplete, but I don't count foreign TFs as part of US sets, which is mainly what I collect. If I did, I'd be buying up a sh*tload of Binaltech & Kiss Players figures to complete my Alternator collection.

South Korea by Daewoo, whom GM bought a few years back after they went bankrupt.

It's suprising this isn't available in the country the movie was mostly geared towards. :???: But GM is pushing the Chinese market pretty hard because it's growing so fast and they have an awesome foothold there, so I guess they feel they want a connection there too.

If it's being made in China and there's money to be made there will be plenty of KOs coming soon enough.

Or, if we whine loud enough maybe HASBRO will take pity and release it here as some kind of exclusive.

that's ridiculous! Is Hasbro trying to go bankrupt?

Considering it's rare for a Transformer mould to go without being repainted and sold again a few months later, I seriously SERIOUSLY doubt they created an entirely new mould just to use it for promotional giveaways in China.

I hope that we will see this sometime in the future in the Universe line

Yeah, it'll surely end up as something else. Maybe in this case they released the crappy version first for the Chinese, and we'll get a nicer repaint. :lol:

Wait'l we see one of these on ebay in a few. I'm willing to bet the prices will sky rocket, if not be pretty high.
