Don't get yourself Swindled by Jin-Saotome Don't get yourself Swindled by Jin-Saotome
Here's Combaticon Swindle done in a Generations style and an 8" voyager scale height. He was made from the Transformers Crossover Iron Man Humvee, head from ultra class Silverbolt with a newly sculpted face/crest, main gun from Animated Swindle with extra parts, reworked hubcaps, and completely reworked inner joints to remove the clicky-ratchet style for smoother motion. Swindle's head is now on a full ball joint which gives him much more personality and tons of movement. Swindle was painted with Tamiya Dark yellow spray lacquer, testors gunmetals/metallics, and Formula P3 paints.

On a separate note the Iron man Crossover mold here is my favorite out of the whole series. Everything is sharp looking, wonderful articulation, design, and just the overall heft of the figure. You could probably turn this guy into all sorts of things!

Update, now with bigger eyes!

You should take this mold and make a Generations/Movie combo Ratchet with it, or another heavy-duty TF who can handle a Hummer form.

By taking normal heads and sculpting over them with Aves Apoxie sculpt or having CamoKids castings make them

that is sexy but i like the secondary gun (with the three barrels) over the animated one. i mean the figure is generations so a more realistic gun looks better. but over all amazing

That looks fantastic, and being a larger mold, looks like he belongs more with the other combaticons.
Since you mentioned you loved the mold (which actually started out as Captain America) the designer is on DA!

Ironman Humvee in context of the first movie is kinda Ironic (Ironic, i kill me). But yeah, that is an INCREDIBLE swindle!

The new eyes definitely sell it better as Swindle. Looks like he's wearing mirror-shades
