Swindle

Swindle Wants to Know . . .

“Bro, do you even lift?”

I picked up Combiner Wars Swindle last night, and I took a few pictures.

When I first saw Swindle on the shelf I had a mixed opinion of the figure.  The one I really wanted was Brawl, to tell you the truth, but this was the only one they had on shelves.  I wasn’t a fan of the Rook mold to be honest, but G1 Swindle is one of the figures I had as a kid.  Also the figure was a lot bulkier than I thought Swindle should be.  The original figure had scrawny arms.

This guy’s been clearly hitting the gym lately.  He’s a regular beefcake!

All in all I’m glad I picked up the figure.  The proper hands are a VAST improvement over Rook!  The hole in front of the fist was . . . interesting, but I prefer my figures to be able to hold their weapons the right way.

Speaking of weapons, Swindle comes with the same hand/foot/gun that rook came with. There’s a hole in the palm section that allows you to mount it on top of his vehicle mode, but it also allows you to combine it with his main gun!

All in all Swindle is a pretty awesome figure.  Maybe a little beefier than I expected, but a great addition to my Decepticon ranks!

I’d recommend him, even if you’re not planning on picking up the rest of the Combaticons.  Hell, I’m not.  Well probably Brawl, but not the other three.

Review of “Marauder Task Force” Figures

Today at the New Jersey Collectors Convention, Marauder Gun Runners had a booth set up showing off and selling their new “Marauder Task Force” line of 3 3/4″ Action Figures.

I picked up four sets. Normally on their website, you would pick a body, and customize as you see fit with heads, weapons, gear, etc. Today at the show, they had prepackaged sets of the different colors (Black, Blue, Red, White, Dark Green, Camo and Tan).

I picked up one each of the Dark Green, Red, White, and Tan, of which I’ll be giving you my honest opinions of below.

Protectobots!

When I was a child, one of the first Transformers I remember having was Hot Spot. I eventually managed to acquire Streetwise and Groove from one of my cousins when he was trying to get rid of some of his Transformers. I never did acquire Blades or First Aid.

But now I’ve got all of the Protectobots . . . except Groove.

Let’s be honest this is CobraIsland, we’re not as up tight as the Suits in Springfield.
