    Hmmm I wonder if he ass sorts of guns that pop out all over like in the show. Kind of like Ultra Magnus' hidden weapons.

    He does, actually. The toy has those shoulder guns on stalks, plus the chest-mounted Gatling cannon.

    Swindle = do want.

    Great bio for Swindle, I can't find a single flaw with the toy either, a must have all around.

    Edit: I did a double take at 'gyro missile', thought it said 'gypo missile'...

    Oh yea, Swindle is a definate buy. The fact that his gut gatling gun can be hidden in bot mode is just icing on the cake.

    Swindle is an interesting looking 'bot. His body is a great homage to G1 Prime in design, but his head looks like the design in the original Marvel Comics stories before they re-tooled the look to mimic the cartoon more. Plus the fact that he has a BFG strapped to his arm makes him ever so much the Megaton look-a-like.

    Good Job Hasbro! Give yourselves a biscuit!

    Hey, Purple decepticon sign on the vehicle?
    I thought they weren't going to do that in TFA?

    Swindle looks pretty good. One of the few Animated that actually has a gun/cannon.

    Swindle is badass. They kept his bolo tie, but it's not painted. (or at least, it doesn't look like it) I'm buying two Beachcombers: one to leave as is, one to repaint into my favourite piggy-pig-pig.





    Actually, all those are direct homage to Swindle's cartoon model. His cannon and body design are near identicle to his show model's design.

    Sweet, Swindle's a deluxe. I had him pinned as a voyager for some reason.

    I saw all this yesterday afternoon when I was doing my toy shopping. Figured it was probably already known. Was gonnna preoder Swindle but changed my mind when I noticed the fall20 coupon expired three days ago.
