    Swindle's colors are a bit subdued compared to his stock photos.
    He still looks awesome though.

    Agreed. Another thing shown here: His chest cannon can be tucked in. Thats pretty neat. (Or they decided to remove it. Which is definitely NOT neat.)

    Yeah, looks like his chest cannon and his shoulder 'shield generators' can be tucked away.

    Swindle looks great, not perfect, but still great. It's nice to see that his weapons can be stored away in bot-mode, and that not all of the purple on him is transparent plastic. It's also nice to see more Animated toys with regular red and purple logos. Swindle is the only one of those four that I plan on getting.

    Yes. I too am glad that they're switching back to the regular red and purple faction symbols. Never did like the silver and gold they were doing.

    i love Swindle though i hope he has his weapons still, cause it would suck if he didnt come with them.

    The shoulder cannons are still there, just mistransformed. I'm not so sure about the chest cannon. I want to believe it's just stored away, because it would suck if it was removed for some reason.

    Swindle could use a bit more purple.

    I spy a head fin on the back of Blurr's car mode.

    Not that I wasn't getting him already.

    Blurr looks insane. And judging from the way his photo is taken he looks to be super tall kinda like Lockdown. Awsome. Swindle looks good, sorta. I wasn't super impressed with him on the show so he's a maybe.

    Okay, NOW I am officially freaked out about Cyclonus. Like most others, I naturally dismissed the pics we saw a few days ago as being unfinished/proto, but these new pics look like they almost *could be* official.

    God I hope Hasbro didn't go ahead and re-do this guy.

    Swindle and Blurr are really quite impressive for deluxes, all the more so in the wake of having 'witnessed' the jet twins.

    Cyclonus is good, some missing paint yes but I suspect the budget firmly dictated that change be nessacary. Hound is looking better, he still looks too much like that Halo buggy for my tastes but I think he'll be worth getting none the less.
