    Now I was watching old reruns of animated and while I was watching I came to the thought that Swindle seems like a real psychotic SOB. I don't know why I think so though. Maybe it's the constant smile like :D  or maybe because he's just too happy when he's doing something bad but IDK, does anyone else look at certain characters and think, "man this Motherfucker is nuts." or "what the hell is with this guy" all in all, Swindle kinda creeps me out.. :(

    Swindle is the ultimate car Salesman.

    He'll smile because he always has a plan and knows he can always win... Because he's Swindle.

    Swindle is a Greedy, Sneaky little son of a bitch, but his grin belies his weakness for all things currency.

    That creepy grin is meant to hide the fact that behind his fake friendliness is someone who would sell his own mother for scrap. It is meant to hide the fact that, even as he makes a deal with you, he's calculating how much he could profit from tearing you apart and selling your parts off to the highest bidder.

    It's that double-dealing nature, that loyalty to nothing but profit, that makes him and Lockdown so much more interesting than the Decepticons.

    Psychotic? No he's always hit me as bad guy who'd learn to talk his way thought life. Always smile keep claim and also look to see how you benefit from this.
    Psychotic mean someone who doesn't really understand what going on around him. but i don't think that's what you mean: I think you using the word as in he's some kind of murder.
    I think Swindle is the opposite of both of those, even back in G1 day. He know exactly what going on, and causing harm is only on the mind if he profits from it.

    From my recollection of the episode, he doesn't seem to be sadistic at all
