    I'm currently repainting a wst tf knockoff baldigus into bruticus. I don't have my original handy, and i can't find a decent photo, so does anyone have a good picture of G1 swindle, in particular his chest plate. Is it a light purple?

    What i really want to know is how do the purples compare on blast off, swindle and vortex. Are they close enough to use one colour at the smaller scale?

    Also has anyone ever tried this before?

    Swindle & Blast Off are a dark purple; Vortex is considerably lighter.

    I think thats the best reference photo i've ever seen of bruticus. Thanks a lot! I think i'm going to go with the grey chested swindle, like you have there. Its the version I have in my distant collection too.
