    I don't know, I think the UT Swindle blows OM out of the water. The jeep looks way better and the proportions are a lot cleaner. Fraudo is definitely better in leg mode and will certainly help fill out his team, if anything I just need to get Gahz as a standalone figure.

    Can't say I agree. I think both are good looking figures and while I think there's an argument to be made the UT figure is better proportioned and has a nice chest (only because Fraudo uses transparent plastic) I think both make great representations of Swindle. Plus I greatly prefer the color of Fraudo. Hopefully we'll get some in hand pics soon - mine just shipped from Show.z.

    Yeah agreed. OM Swindle is just not cartoon accurate with the jutting torso. Makes him look fat.

    Yeah the only issue I have is that the clear window makes him seem a bit hollow. Which he isn’t and that’s great but it’s a bit confusing. I still like that it’s clear because it’s nice in altmode.

    Goddamn, this is a tough one ... can the UT and MMC versions just rent a room and create my ultimate MP Swindle?

    although i will be getting fraudo, it pains me to know the UT is better in 2/3 modes...MMC wins combiner leg mode. i actually quite like some of UT's combaticons (at least based on looks, have not handled)...But i could not get over their blastoff and vortex looking a bit lazy...like they used up all thei effort and love on brawl and swindle. fraudo... if i'm judging you one on one vs. UT's gahzranka...which i consider almost perfect in both alt and bot modes...you lose. almost wondering if i need to pick both of them up. why can't any one of these sets be best at everything ahha.

    While neither is a grand slam in the Swindle animated look-a-like contest, the colors and look of Fraudo are more appealing to me.

    In all honesty it reminds me of the old cliche of the guy moving the heavy sofa for his wife. Move it six inches to the left; now to the right; now back in the middle... No better try the other wall instead.

    I don’t think one destroys the other... I have G’ahazranka and will buy Fraudo... I thin UT Gahaz holds up nicely. I do like Fraudo’s colors.

    They haven't been made available yet, but they should be offered by anybody selling the main set. Probably whenever Onslaught goes up for order, if I had to guess.

    Yeah, and Fraudo, much like the rest of OM has small deviations, albeit more inspired from other forms in continuity. While UT does it’s own approach, much like other companies.

    It’s a funny game this MP buying scheme.

    Very cool comparison shots. I approve! :cool: ;)

    Should go up for sale when Incursus does though fairly sure the parts will be manufactured at a different time since they were a much later development for the set.

    Eh I still strongly disagree with this assessment. UT's Swindle doesn't really look like Swindle to me so much as "generic wide jeep becomes heroic beige toy". Fraudo better captures the spirit of the character, has all the crucial animation details, perfect color and just gives off more Swindle personality in general.

    This pic really makes this clear to me finally seeing them side by side its the final nail in the coffin of me ever considering UT's Swindle, I just don't need it, never will.

    UT's just isn't Swindle to me. Fraudo has that "eye catching asshole" look I always want to see on Swindle toys. And if FT ever does the Combaticons I hope they aim for the same thing; rich yellow, big booties, some chunk specifically to benefit the leg mode. An MP Swindle always needs these things to be a great Swindle toy imo.

    Toy Swindle is fat though, so I hope MMC has plans to retool this guy to his toy version.

    Oh I'm totally buying Fraudo cause he still looks a ton of fun, who doesn't want a Swindle?

    I don't really see Gahz as "heroic" if anything he just looks like a more realistic Swindle to me. Almost as if David Tennant was going to play him or something like that. Really we're just coming down to interpretations of the character. I don't really care about animation accuracy and Sunbow model sheets belong in the trash. Swindle to me is a smirking smarmy yellow offroad vehicle who'd sell you out for pocket change. That's just my opinion though.

    Agreed. That Toy Spirit is something only few companies nail. MMC are great at it and it really shows here.

    To me, the Swindles are about even, Fraudo doesn't blow UT Swindle out of the water the way Impetus did to UT Vortex. As I've said before, I like the proportions of Fraudo's weapons better. His scatterblaster is a better size for his arm, and his gyro gun still looks like a rocket, but at least it looks pistol sized. UT Swindle's is just overly long and doesn't look good in his hands. Plus in jeep mode, I like that Fraudo's gun mount actually clears the windshield without having to be angled up.

    That being said, I think UT Swinde's accessories are more "playable". You can mount his scatterblaster on the side OR front of his arm, and I like that you can combine his weapons together to form a sniper rifle.

    But yeah, I can't wait for Fraudo to come in and compare them in hand.

    Got mine from Show.z yesterday. Of course, since they use pretty slow shipping I probably won't have it for two weeks.
