    I've painted my Swindle to match his on-show counter-part. Still a WIP as I just have to put on a few more coats and clean up what's already there.

    He was epic before, but now...

    Painted over the black lines in car mode
    Pink lines on side of head
    Decpticon logo on belly
    Faux car front headlights and black sections underneath
    Back bumper
    Tail lights and rear roof lights
    Rear window
    Sides of front bumper
    Running lights on front bumpre and back bumper
    Black deatils around the rear pink lights
    panel lines on the doors
    Filled in missing parts of driver and passenger side windows
    Pink lines on the hip wheels
    Filled in the sides of the torso where there should've been purple
    black lines on waist

    Stuff left to do:

    Finish rear bumper lights

    Black leg details below the knees
    General cleanups here and there

    Excellent work. I've been thinking about doing the same for mine.

    Also, in the show I think he had a spare tire on the back. I've been pondering how to pull that off. It would convert into some sort of weapon, naturally - this is Swindle we're talking about!

    I was thinking that. Instead of just getting another of his tires to go on the back, I was going to make a new one and have a little flip out double-barreled gun that could attach to the inside of his arm like the one he had on the show.

    I like! What shade of purple did you use for the back windshield? The lack of one is what bothers me the most about this toy, but if the paint you used can be bought at a store I'll gladly improve the figure.

    Thanks for the comments!

    I used several different brands and shades of purple to get that, with a little silver thrown in to accurately mimmick the metallic windows. A lot of my paints have the labels removed (just something I do incase they get wet and label bits fall into the paint) so I'm not sure I can help you in that regard, but I can check my other paints for labels.
