Swindle - Alternators - Figures

I just bought Alternators Swindle today at Wal-Mart. He’s the first new Alternator I’ve seen in a few months. I thought I’d let the original Swindle do this review.

Take it away little guy!

The new and much-improved body that I’ll be using is a Jeep Wrangler, rather than the combat 4x4. That Autobot punk Hound has one that’s similar, but this one is much better. Color’s a bit lighter than my original. I’ll bet I could get a bit of energon for that shiny new chrome grille and oversized tires as well. Hound probably wishes he had those bad boys!

Doors open of course. Hood opens to show off the clean as a whistle engine. The wheels don’t steer, but there are some excellent springy shock absorbers. The cab is a bit small for me, but the seats all recline so nicely. The radio and cup holders are great for that Kremzeek cola or listening in to those well-crafted used car ads on the human radio stations. Now if only I could learn to drive a stick.

And here’s the new and very spiffy robot mode. Nicely articulated, and finally my arms will move at the shoulder instead of the waist! I’ve got a visor instead of these oversized eyes, and some purple is finally visible. My insignia rotates into view since I don’t need to conceal it in this mode. Knees bend, ankles rotate side to side on ratcheting joints, and the hands are articulated. My only qualm is my much reduced firepower. I’ve gone from having a major league cannon to a tiny pistol.

My verdict: buy me! Send major money or energon my way! Always remember, war is good for business.
