Autobot Swerve Meet Swerve, lamest of the Autobots! Oh, sure, he looks pretty tough in 'bot mode, ready to dish the pain to the Decepticons, but man, it must suck to be him when he's a robot in disguise. While the rest of his posse rolls around playing dress-up as the new Camaro, a trick-looking TopKick, and other generally appealing machinery, Swerve transforms into an... Aveo. God, the humiliation. He should scan the next Corvette he sees and get out of those frumpy duds, ASAP.

According to Transformers fansite Seibertron.com, this particular version of Autobot Swerve is part of a GM promotion and is limited to 2,000 pieces. To get one, you apparently need to buy a new Aveo, which is asking a lot of even the most ardent TF collector. Fortunately, for them, there's eBay, but beware: Aveobot Swerve's bringing in quite the pretty penny.

Thanks to Alex T for the tip!

      Having actually *driven* an Aveo (they've been fleet-sold to Enterprise), I pity the poor bastard who actually buys that piece of junk.

      This toy is probably more reliable and of higher quality than you can get from GM right now"...

      JD Power & Associates' latest annual Vehicle Dependability Survey measures problems encountered after 3 years of ownership and this time, Buick tied with perennial first-placer Lexus with a mere 145 problems per 100 vehicles, far ahead of the industry average. And don't think Buick was the only winner from GM; the Aveo, CTS, and DeVille did well in their respective segments. Click below to see class winners and scoring breakdown by brand and see what Lexus may end up relentlessly pursuing.

      I bet he knows how Jazz feels. Martini Rossi Porsche race car > Pontiac Soltice.

      I so want this Transformer and I'm not a Transformer or Aveo fan.

      Buy the way, I will never by an Aveo unless it comes with a set of hot looking bi chicks.

      This should have been "Cliffhanger".

      Wrong wrong wrong, wrong wrong wrong

      He's being given out...in China. When you test drive an Aveo. Not when you buy one. This rumor's been debunked already.

      even the toy has a bad fit and finish.

      Alex - "by" should be "buy" :-)
