    Since Swindle's my favorite character, I guess I felt I owed him a quick review. Outta all the figures that make up Bruticus I have to say Swindle's the best, although that just may be me being biased.

    So here's his vehicle mode:
    It's actually pretty cool, I'm guessing it's a cybertronian truck? Idk who cares. He rolls pretty well and the colors definitively give us a nice retro G1 look.

    And here's his robot mode:

    His head sculpt confuses me, is he supposed to be yelling? Maybe someone forgot to pay him and penny and he's pissed:

    The only bad thing is his hollow back:

    All in all I'm glad I got the SDCC version, because the colors are spot on G1 and he looks great! I'll for sure be getting the G2 version basically only for Swindle...hes that good. If you missed out on the FP Bruticus than you'll be satisfied with this one.

    Thanks! Looks great. I preordered the G2 Bruticus, but I'll probably but a retail swindle for a stand alone figure.

    On the face: That's his chin guard. His mouth is just a little line above it.

    Hate the head design, it's so generic. Don't know why they didn't go with the big eyes the original Swindle had, especially given how (obnoxiously) "G1! G1! G1!" WfC/FoC is.

    Wish some of the chest armor folded over to cover some of the back. Otherwise the figure itself is pretty nice, considering it's part of a Scramble City Combiner.

    He does have big eyes. Or rather a visor that pinches in the middle. It's just the purple and black make them hard to see.

    He looks pretty awesome. Glad to see his shoulders aren't actually as low as I thought (nice job, stock photographers...not.). I'll be grabbing either the retail or G2 version, and probably the Roadbuster retool too.

    The visor is what I don't like about it. Swindle without big eyes doesn't look very Swindley.
    Although...

    Looks like that could be easily fixed.

    The colors look a little flat and has a hollow back but otherwise, it looks good.

    I really like that. Can't wait to get him, I love Swindle and don't have any of his toys, so this'll be a treat for me.

    I still want all the Fall of Cybertron molds but Swindle looks really bad from the back. Like HORRIBLE.

    Do his fists fold back into his forearms? It looks like they should at the very least.

    I wish I could buy this individually. I want Swindle from the SDCC set but I don't really need the rest.
