    Nice review d00d. Personally I always liked the Armada Blurr mould, and that colour scheme really does seem to suit it.

    Not to pick nits with you or anything, but where did you come up with the name Swindle for the Mini-con? According to my MIP one, his name is Roadhandler.

    Nice, I'm liking the redeco. Will have to keep an eye out for this.

    Or that it's a Basic sized figure?

    Swerve was not the only rare Universe Deluxe. His case-mates Nemesis Strika, Air Raid & Wind Sheer, and Fireflight with Firebot/Thunderwing were also notoriously difficult to find, but the group as a whole has never remained consistently expensive. I don't recall Takara actually releasing or announcing Swerve as a USA Edition, but referring to them as "asking way to [sic] much" is silly considering I've seen Swerve go for retail as much as I have for $30+.

    Otherwise, it's an okay review, and Universe's figures don't always get the positive attention that the good ones deserve.

    Swindle was Starscream's Mini-Con. Incinerator is Blurr's Mini-Con and the one repainted into Roadhandler. It's actually interesting that he's called Roadhandler, because most Universe Mini-Cons retained their Armada names whether or not they had any connection to that character.

    Oh, for a second I thought you were talking about the Chevy Aveo Swindle, and I would have to write and tell you how much I hate you.

    Same here' He;d be perfect if he had just a wee bit more articulation.

    He's still awesome just for reminding me of Back to the Future and The Last Starfighter in his alt mode. I love flying cars

    I really like that version of the mold. It pops on the shelf. Also, I second the love for flying cars. :)
