Reviews - Alternators Swindle
My favorite Alternators mold, I could never find Hound for a reasonable price but Swindle is awesome. He looks great in vehicle mode and robot mode with a good transformation. G1 Swindle's original form was pretty dull but this makes up for it. Great toy.
I never got hound so im glad i got swindle his colors are alot better than hound, his transformation is simple but good, i have no need for hound now i have swindle.
I love him. He is better than Hound. The new face sculpt is awesome. He is a must get for anyone who likes Alternators.
The mold carries over well. a lot bigger the Hound in some aspects whiich makes him look tougher. NICE!!
A fair homage to the G1 Swindle. It's not bad, but there's nothing paticulary new with this mold. Mildly recommended.
Easy transformation especially if you already had practice on Hound. Why did I give this the lowest review so far? Because it offers nothing up new besides a repainted Hound. Still I like repaints if it suits the character and honors Swindle.
Well it's another good repaint of a decent mold. However I'm glad I bought the all plastic Alternator, I would have wasted my money if I imported the Binalteach version. This is a good mold no matter the paint job, or alligence.
You all know Im pretty harsh on reviews, but this one is pretty good to the point of near perfection...except.. the joints are a little weak and some areas all around are weak(plastic of course) but overall excellent.
LOVE the new head-sculpt and grille. Looks surprisingly good in eye-popping yellow. Superior to Hound in every way.
i love him hes great even if he doesn't look to much like the G1 Swindle.
great my first alt decepticon.
The mold has held up well, and the yellow is more subdued than I thought it would be. Of all of the retools this one has had the fewest apparent changes. Trailbreaker face is cool, and square enough to work as swindle's. Can't wait for more 'cons.
it's just a redeco of hound pretty boring if ya ask me
I am a JEEP OWNER the Jeep mold is Excellent and the yellowish color is very real with the 2000's line of JEEPS and pays good homage to the original Swindle, however I dont like yellow in the real vehicle much less in a toy.
Only wish I could give him a 100! Love the new color, head mold, bigger tires and brush guard. He even wastes Hound. For my tastes, this is the most perfect TF ever. Has/Tak, you rock!
Like I said for Dead End and Silverstreak, Swindle looks like Hound exept for color.
You know FRENZY you were right about Swindle yellow and not white, besides he looks good as a yellow Jeep Wrangler.
Hey N.Tropy,the point of these Alternators is to ressemble the G1 line with todays upgrades.Swindle was originally yellow not white.Do us all a favor , just paint yours white.
When I saw Swindle in Transformers videos volume 3, I saw him as a combaticon but I don't know what to say about him in car mode. Hear me Hasbro, can you make him a Jeep Wrangler just like Hound and make him white please? That would be great.
