A member of the Destruction Team, Blight combines with his teammates to form the powerful Bruticus Maximus. Poor blighter, he was too near the sun, and like Icarus it proved his undoing, only it wasn't the sun, it was Barricade's spark, and it was exploding, and Blight wasn't trying to fly. So really he wasn't like Icarus at all, but he can still be our friend.
- Japanese name: Swindle
Blight was never referred to by name or shown in robot mode. He was only seen in vehicle mode or as part of the combined form of Bruticus Maximus.
- Blight (Basic, 2005)
- US Team member number: D2
- Blight shares a mold with his teammate Kickback, transforming into an anti-aircraft tank similar to a Gepard. He has a clear-blue energon chip that can attach to most Energon-series toy molds. He can also form the arm or leg to any combination of Energon combiner team super robot, though his "standard" position (as shown on his cardback) is as the left arm of Bruticus Maximus.
- This mold was also used to make Landquake.
- Bruticus (Multi-pack, 2004)
- Japanese ID number: SD-21
- In Japan, Blight (aka "Swindle") was only available as part of a complete set of all five Destruction Team members, never as an individual. There are several small deco differences between the Hasbro and Takara releases, the largest being that "Swindle" uses a less... virulent-looking yellow as a base color.
