Generation One

  • Race Car Patrol (Micromaster Patrol, 1989)
Swindler transforms into a gray DeLorean DMC-12 sports car. He was sold only as part of a Patrol four-pack with Roadhandler, Free Wheeler and Tailspin.


  • Race Car Patrol Team (Micro Transformer Team, 1990)
    • Japanese ID number: C-334
The Race Car Patrol Team was sold in Japan as part of the Zone series. The toys are identical to the Hasbro versions.
