    hey guys, i'm looking for a toy that would be a good base for a movie style G1 swindle for my movie rewrite. since he's taking soundwave's place as carly's car in the dotm rewrite i want him to be a snazzy sports car, and here's where i got my list from. these are excluding their heads since almost none of them fit swindle haha

    AOE Crosshairs
    +Trenchcoat like stereotypical shady guy on streets
    +Weapon/merchandise storage
    +Characterful sculpt
    -Not very accurate car mode
    -Kinda small?

    ROTF Scout Brakedown
    +Lamborghini!
    +Head is already pretty Swindle-y
    -Bad, bad kibble
    -Suffers from 'monstrous' proportions not fitting Swindle

    DOTM Que
    +Tons of weapons/merchandise
    +Solid robot mode
    +Licensed vehicle mode
    -Expensive
    -Weak points on legs
    -Possible paint rubbage?

    DOTM Deluxe Soundwave
    +Licensed Mercedes
    +Well proportioned for a Decepticon mold
    -Very expensive lol
    -Small
    -Kibble up the wazoo
    -Arm detailing is distinctively Soundwave

    ROTF Deluxe Sideways
    +Good proportions
    +Close enough Audi
    +Semi-claw hands work for Swindle
    -Not quite Audi
    -Weird kibble
    -Possible Paint Rubbage

    AOE Deluxe Lockdown
    +Licensed Lamborghini, like damn
    +Good film design
    -Toy might have bad proportions?

    i'd really appreciate some feedback on this, feel free to make any suggestions of your own too :)

    AOE Crosshairs. Car mode doesn't exactly have to be accurate in the first place, and Swindle isn't exactly a big guy (he's on the smaller side). Just pop a new noggin on, and—boom! Swindle.

    Maybe Crosshairs, definitely if the trenchcoat looked like a trenchcoat. (Is is a trenchcoat or bad kibble?)

    Have you SEEN the toy? It has two soft plastic pieces that tab in on the front to form the trench coat.

    i decided on que and made crosshairs into rattrap after realizing two things..

    1) crosshairs' guns can be BOMBS
    2) the head i chose (ROTF brakedown) has rattrap's face

    Not in person, which is odd since wave two is out in some shops over here.

    hey guys, figured i'd use this thread since i can't decide on a head for him now. swindle would be voiced by Bob Odenkirk and characterized like his notorious character Saul Goodman. i was thinking Movie Arcee's head in black because it has a robot combover like Saul but not sure the face would work.

    alternatively, more a slightly more G1 look, i could use ROTF Armorhide's head painted black, with those giant holes painted all purple to mimic swindle's notorious cat eyes, along with the square shape. only thing missing is the slimy smile, not too fond of the... mouth-thing. swindle needs his smile, but not many movie heads with mouths and big eyes or anything.
