    he stands perfectly when alone but when he has weight put on him, he stands up about as well as Brawl does in robot mode. i also hope to mod a retail Swindle so i can keep it in leg mode

    thoughts?

    Swindle is an arm... Blast-off is a leg.

    Find a way to move the front tires back to the other tires in the leg and you've got his game accurate leg form.

    Yeah this is how I'd plan on doing mine. Swindle makes an awesome looking arm.

    The giant toe/sock foot looks a little strange to me, but it's a cool find.

    I honestly can tell you I don't like the giant foot look to Swindle,its too obtrusive.So when I get my Bruticus Set then Swindle will be displayed as he should be,in his original combined mode like the instructions say.As for those who display him like the OP shows that is fine,I just don't like it that way period.

    Swindle makes an okay arm. but Blast Off and Vortex are god awful legs IMO. BO just looks like a cone in leg mode and Vortex looks like he has shoelaces. Brawl is also a terrible arm cause of the tank kibble.

    and i wish there was some way to make the hood tuck under his legs a little more :(  and i will try to move the wheels back further

    lol nooo, at least on Vortex, he makes a GREAT leg mode. Blast Off is fine if you're cool with pegleg (I kinda am), Brawl is easily the worst arm, ugh...

    Brawl is a god awful arm... I really like Swindle and Vortex as the arms. I can deal with a cone foot (just hide him behind shockwave or something) but as an arm, BO is an affront to combiner arms everywhere.
