Though he is outfitted with a sensor package and weapons system nearly identical to his twin brother HARDTOP, SWINDLE scorns long-range tactics. He'd rather charge an AUTOBOT and club him across the visual cluster with his laser rifle than actually use it to blast another robot. SWINDLE is deceptively agile and tough for his size, traits developed over years of picking fights and winning. He's not as slavishly loyal to MEGATRON as his brother; he'll work for anyone who lets him trash AUTOBOTS.

Hardtop’s brother may look like someone who can keep his cool together, but put him in an arena, stick a blunt object in his hand and the guy turns into a berserker bot. After Megatron left the Jungle Planet he placed Hardtop, Swindle and Runamuck on sentry patrol there to watch over some of the locals. Swindle immediately headed for the hills and his brother couldn't find him for weeks. One day, while patrolling, Runamuck landed in an elaborate trap that strung him up in an electron-spider-web. Dangling 100 feet above the air near a tree limb, Runamuck looked around and was shocked to discover he was starting at a highly camouflaged and majorly feral Swindle. With an animalistic grin, Swindle cut Runamuck down and leapt from tree to tree cackling like a hyenabot. Swindle had heard the call of nature and answered the phone!
