The name or term Swindle refers to more than one character or idea. For a list of other meanings, see Swindle (disambiguation).

Swindle is a Decepticon in the Cybertron portion of the Unicron Trilogy continuity family.


Swindle is the scuffed, cracked, and filth-encrusted mirror image of his brother Hardtop. Where Hardtop is a highly skilled sniper, Swindle would sooner beat your face in with his rifle than shoot you with it; in contrast to Hardtop's unswavering loyalty to Megatron, Swindle would gladly fight for someone else if they paid him enough.

Swindle thinks his brother is a coward for hiding behind his long-range scope, unwilling or unable to face the enemy face-to-face. He's not the smartest bot out there, but he's a genius when it comes to camouflage, trapping, and good old-fashioned head-smashing. He'll hide out in the wild for weeks, living like the animal he truly is.



  • Swindle (Scout class, 2006)
Swindle is a redeco of Cybertron Hardtop in yellow, maroon, and olive green, making he have a color scheme similar to his Generation One counterpart, but lighter. He transforms into a dune buggy of indeterminate model. Plugging a Cyber Planet Key into the butt of his rifle flips out an extrnded barrel for a "sniper" mode. He came with a silver-bordered Earth-style Cyber Planet Key with the Cyber Key code "s4mr" stamped on the back.
