    This is something I started on today. I looked at my old G1 Swindle toy and then at the -horrible- TFTM Swindle.

    I had one brown-tint of paint at that moment and I just went to town with it.

    Still have to clean up the paint and add some details here and there, but I care very little for this figure =/ So I might not even finish him hahaha...Probably will, but it'll have to wait, I'm leaving him at my parents' house to cure, and I'll be back there next weekend.

    Still a stupid Transformer...

    edit: Oh, the flasher was on. The colors aren't coming through at all =/

    Can happen no sooner than 6 days from now.....

    It's still a very silly repaint....It's a silly figure. The brown kinda dried up to look more like Beyoncé's skintone than Swindle's brown.

    The mold is a good base to practice painting TF's on. Easy to disassemble, good balance between smooth and detailed surfaces, and a relatively low start value on the unchanged figure so you don't have to worry about loosing too much of an investment if you screw up something beyond salvaging.
