Swindle is a Decepticon from the Transformers: The Movie franchise.
Swindle was the first Decepticon to arrive on earth, scouting ahead of the main force. He scanned a Cadillac CTS-V to disquise himself from the human military. He attacked the scout bot Bumblebee, who had also been sent ahead to scout. The two engaged in a battle in the city, where Swindle was thrown through a building by Bumblebee, before being shot in the spark, but not before Swindle transmitted a signal to the Decepticons, telling them to arrive on Earth.
Swindle 's main offense was a large shoulder mounted cannon, but he also had two long blades on his wrists.
