So for those that got in on the Walmart Valvoline syn deal, or if you just bought 5 qts of Valvoline Syn, Valvoline has a mail in giveaway for a "Valvotron Action Figure".

Direct link to offer



Offer Expires July 26, 2017. Limit is 2 figures.
If you sign up to receive future promotional items, you can get a few free Transformer stickers as well.

Apparently Valvoline is the official oil of the new Transformers movie.

Stupid little toy, but just figured I would share for those that bought some Valvoline. Free is always good, right.
Will probably just let him hang out on the toolbox.

I also do not see an purchase date requirements (just says offer expires July 26 and request must be received by August 26), so even if you have a receipt from years ago, it should still be valid.

Why not?

Free swag is always good. While this is not something that would make me buy the oil, I already bought the oil so why not.
2 free junk toys (collectors items some day wink ) and some stickers for the tool box. Sounds good to me.
Takes 2 minutes to fill out the info, Valvoline already has my info from rebates and other stuff, so not like I am going to get any more junk mail than I already get (actually received this in my e-mail).

I don't know why and I certainly don't condone it, but these Valvotron action figures are listed on eBay for ridiculous amounts right now.

Thats crazy. One is up to $51 in auction, another is $80 buy it now or best offer.

I already forgot about this so it showing up would have been a surprise.

Well, today is the last day to submit, and I got mine today.

I like the oil jug shaped package:


Front:


Back (I like the oil cap on the back):


and hanging out on the tool box:


So if you have bought any 5 qt jugs of Valvoline, and want a stupid little toy that has no use, then it is the last day to order it.
