Both one of the writers and the artist provided studies for Swindle: robot mode and alien vehicle mode.

Swindle appeared repeatedly in SoD: Shockwave/Soundwave.
What bothers him is the Renewal Program that Sentinel Prime started in SoD: Sentinel Prime.

More Swindle selling illegal weapons in page 8 of SoD: Ratbat.

The deception of selling weapons to the two warring sides of a conflict is not new to the Transformers.
THe Quintessons did the same in G1 cartoon episode "The Quintesson Journal" (Season 3, when cartoons were still allowed a social commentary).

See the entire story in the Short Stories folder.

What in the world is Hero factory doing in this comic (sorry if I seem to not know something that crucial that could explain it, I'm not watching you I just found this deviation)?!. Even HF doesn't deserve to share a universe with those... trans... formers.... ugh. Don't deny the character in the last frame are inspired by the first wave of the hero factory franchise!

Well, if you don't  like "those trans... formers.... ugh", then there's no point in talking about homages and nods, right?

Uhm.. Well... Uhm, sorry for annoying you XD

As you may realize, one does not take well that the characters of their own fancomic are dismissed like "ugh".
Anyway, in the comments of page 2 of the comic, we launched a "quiz" about those robotic guest stars... and you properly answered the question.

Fair enough, since I wasn't so nice about your Transformers :)

For some reason, those aliens remind me of the hero factory sets from Lego.

Maybe there is a secret purpose behind their look and the names :)

It's great to finally see this all put together. It looks great! I'm glad I was a part of it. :)

Also, I just love the social commentary in this, it has a very powerful message!
