    Hi Hi, Finally got pictures of this guy up. Computers Graphics card crashed and I had to Borrow my Ladies Laptop, thank god she has photoshop. Anyways Here's Swindle, he was a commission so most details you see are because they were specified that way(Purple Grill, lights, yellow color and it's positioning on legs, etc.). He was a Hound through and through before I started. Chopped parts of the head off and re-sculpted to make Swindle's head, used a G1 gun(Client Request) for his cannon. Drilled a hole on the back of the truck and the arm and it fits snugly in both no problems. Painted completely by hand and I have to say I HATE YELLOW and any derivatives of it. LOL Took me twice as long to finish that I had originally planned which is ok cause I like him. =DThanks for looking.

    that's a really good looking "yellow". Is it a mix? Nice job on the head. I have to say the original's gun is scaled pretty darn nicely to this mold.

    Tony, buddy you did a cool job making Swindle. Its always a pleasure to look at your work and be honored to say you sir did a helluva great job. This person is going to lose their minds when seeing this in person. They might faint because its full of awesomeness!

    I like the yellow you used. The paint is also very clean. Perhaps I'll ask you to make one for me as a commission.

    This screams greatness. Nice clean paint job and modding to the head are what really gets me liking this custom. I had qualms about using G1 parts for updated Classics customs but this is making me think other wise.

    And let me guess did you have a problem getting the yellow to go on evenly? That's the problem I have with yellow and white when painting by hand.

    Tony, my hat goes off to you good sir. Your Swindle looks factory! The yellow/brown makes the purple "pop." The only thing I might add is that the rims need some color. Or were they asked to be left alone. Any hoot, another day another fine custom by Mr.Tony. Again, much props on this. You should be proud.

    Thanks bro, yup its a 1:1 mix of Vallejo colors Sun Yellow and Desert Yellow. The gun was a lucky break, had originally planned using Animated Swindles gun but when it was just too big we resorted to the original.
    Yeah unfortunately I doubt it too.
    Thanks so much Bro. I hope they don't loose all there mind, might have another project lined up with him. =D
    Thanks Sir! Glad you like.
    Thanks very much!
    Thanks and sure thing! :thumbs2: 
    Thanks Dawg! Glad you like, I still cant believe how perfect a fit the original gun was either. The yellow was a major pain, If I make another i will airbrush it on, took so many layers and buffing to get it like how you see it that it isn't even funny.
    Thanks very much! Appreciate that. The rims were to be kept like that, thanks for asking.
    Thanks Bro!
    Thanks very much!
    Thanks, he is a sweet mold to paint. Looking forward to your take on him.
    LOL Thanks again, to be honest my paints taste good..... just not that good. :lol

    This looks really good Tony, especially the colors and head mod. You got any plans for a combiner in the future?
