    "Hey man. Wanna buy a plasma cannon, cheap?"

    Swindle
    Decepticon Weapons Specialist

    SWINDLE is a one-robot black market. He's only a DECEPTICON by default, since they're the ones who most often take advantage of his unbeatable deals on armor, weapons and combat systems. If it shoots, explodes, or focuses light into a beam intense enough to melt high-grade armor, SWINDLE will sell it to anyone. Anyone who can pay his price, that is. Most of his inventory, he scavanges from those who fall in battle, but he doesn't mind helping a crippled AUTOBOT all the way to the scrap heap before stripping him of his weapons.

    Galactic Powers & Abilities:
    - Expert haggler and negotiator.
    - Skilled at weapon modification and invention.
    - Gyro missile disrupts enemy sensors and balance.

    I love Swindle in the cartoon. But what really makes him stand out for me is the fact that Fred Willard is the voice. The guy is just awesome.

    Yeah the "haggling" power cracked me up. Whoever heard of a robot with haggling power. The backstory and toys from TF Animated are some of the best I've seen. It's got me completely back on to the Transformers bandwagon. I'd almost say this new series is like G1 for me. I hope it keeps going for many many seasons yet.

    Although to match G1 and keep the momentum, they've got to get the show back on the air and on a consistent basis. We can't go 1/2 year without a show at all. The kiddies will lose interest and forget about it.

    <--Super slow. I just realized all that junk under his neck is a collared shirt and tie. He's so creepy looking. Fits his bio to a T.

    I agree Willard was a sweet choice. This is one of the few TFA characters that I still want after deciding not to get every one of them.

    Retail price is wrong, as he will be 10.99 not 9.99
