    Thread name really says it all. this is what I'd think a more normal styled LockDown would look like

    [​IMG]

    Transformation is very close to the animated toy only now the transformation is flipped back to front so the arms form the front rather then the rear windows.

    Also I went with the blazing chainsaw rather then his normal hook I just feel it looks much nicer.

    The car is the Ford Falcan XB GT with the engine exposed and more square headlights.


    ... yes Mad Max did play a bit of a part in the design.

    I seen someone do Prime, Prowl and BB all animated designs with a G1 style. I'd post the links but the artist also does a whole lot of NSFW stuff.

    oh and thanks for all the comments I will give Bulkhead some thought but I'm not sure how well it will work

    Yeah, that's pretty much what I thought too. The generic "Tin man" G1 face just doesn't seem to suit Lockdown.
    Also, it may just be the expression, but he just doesn't come off as looking like a badass like the character should...He actually kinda looks like he's about to cry.

    I actually hate to be negative about it, because the design overall is pretty trippy. But that face just does not feel like the character at all.
    Something I do like about it is that he only has one of his shoulder pads. That's a nice detail that adds to the concept of him useing different parts from other bots.

    Honestly, I think the mouth is the only facial feature I'd change. For me, the only thing that I don't like is the head seems a little too big.

    I never would have pegged Lockdown as "The Last of the V8 Interceptors", but *DAMN* does he look good!

    You did a wonderful job with it, and he looks beautiful!

    Well the Mad Max thing started off with just similarity's in the alt mode (engine, colour and side pipes) but then I got to thinking about blending in some other elements in the robot mode theirs the leg brace and the shoulder pad.

    I can see why people don't like the head but their is some logic behind it. Firstly given that their are only 2 other incarnations IMO their are no set rules and between the two existing official designs theirs some difference so unlike Prime their are fewer must haves. Now I can see why people would want to keep him with the bald look but IMO outside of animated theirs no presidents for it and you could debate if the movie toy has it since its clearly black on the toy. and he seems to have some rather odd goggles.

    Hmmm the face looks more like Marvels G1 to me, but rest is really outstanding!
