    Swindle's head was a heck of a challenge, but It turned out ok.

    The yellow is my favorite part of this guy, all eroded and distorted. he also comes individually numbered bu decal, and off course, with one big whoppin Rocket Launcher!!!

    Looks like everyone's favorite hustler is pretty well armed, using the features from the CD Hot Shot mold.

    Enjoy!

    Can't say I'm big on the head (or at least the bugeyes).
    Everything else is cool. What's the purple you used?

    Head sculpts are NOT easy to do. Especially at that size - I'm guessing that is about a deluxe size right. Overall, I think you did a fantastic job. His head does give him more of a Japanese animation vibe. Very cool interpretation.

    I really like the treatment of yellow paint on this one as well. I think that the comments regarding the head are valid, and the way around it would be to angle and square things off a bit more. Admittedly, that's easier said than done a lot of times, though. Great work, bud :thumb

    i like the bug eyes, he always gave me a bug-eyed impression, both in G1 and (obviously) Animated.

    This is simply fantasic. Very creative in mold choice. Is the cannon from the Rise of Cobra Joes?

    Him and his buggy eyes, defently Swindle.
    and of course, i just noticed now that you used decals numbering, and naming them :lolol 
    what kind of yellow did you use on Swindle? It looks amazing, and the cannon.....well you can never go wrong with a HUGE cannon :)
