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.

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.

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

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.
