    swindle is amazing.

    Hes got a really good g1 style use of kibble for parts with great chunky in your face proportions (this is just they type of thing i love about animated and disliked about the movie toys). i also like the 'false' abdomen, i know some dont like faux parts but sometimes that works to the advantage of the robot modes look, between him and blurr they are amongst the best Tf ive yet seen.

    He really needs a wash and some drybrushing, or something. That bare chartreuse plastic is too much without something to give it definition.

    He'd be perfect if it wasn't for all of the translucent plastic.

    Really not a fan of translucent plastic being used for anything other than windows and lights. :( 

    Ah well, still looks sweet.

    i agree he could do with a bit more detailing, something easily managed!! theres a fair chance he will get a repaint at some point, hopefully its a nice repaint, something that hasbro have yet to always get right.

    Is that little gun on his gut an extra part or does it pop out from somewhere?

    Looks like his arm articulation is somewhat limited but other than that he looks phenomenal.

    I don't really like this line myself, my son loves it but I myself actually like this character.
