Swindle is pretty much the same toy as Hound, with only minor differences. Swindle is a Decepticon and is based on the same Jeep Wrangler. The color scheme is a nod to the original G1 Swindle, one of the Combaticons.
The most notable difference between Hound and Swindle is the head. Swindle gets its own head, which is more than we can say about most re-colors. Also new on Swindle is a chrome grill, fatter tires and different rims.
I actually prefer Swindle over Hound. It just looks better. Both toys feature realistic vehicle modes with opening doors and hood, as well as working spring suspension. Transformation is easy - probably one of the easiest Alternators to date. Usually, I skip re-colors, but I recommend picking this one up.
