    Doesn't look G1, doesn't look like Lockdown. The face looks like every single robot face Alex Milne has ever drawn.

    An AWESOME eyesore you mean right?

    Cause that's just awesome. The busy look suits Lockdown well.

    Aside from the engine gun on the arm and the spikes on the neck, there's little at all that even suggests this could be Lockdown.

    Hasbro must agree since Milne says they told him to use the ROTF toy as a basis instead, for the Drift mini.

    The face don't look anything like Lockdown. Because of that, I think it fails as a Lockdown.

    I can tell the parts that link the design to Lockdown, but the head kills the resemblance. Pity, because the rest of that bot looks AMAZING.

    It is a nice design, but I have to agree that it doesn't look like Lockdown. Bit too young, and not enough design elements.

    So if this is the original design, then does that mean he has a different one in the comic?

    It would have done better with a more Lockdown-esque head. Aside from that, it's pretty cool.

    He looks cluttery and spikey enough to be Lockdown. But as other have said, his face is not quite as striking as TFA's.

    While it looks cool enough, it unfortunately looks nothing like Lockdown. Boy, am I glad Hasbro insisted he use the ROTF design.

    *sigh* While I generally like Milne's artwork, he really does kinda suck at faces.

    Yeah, what the f***'s up with that face? The body is cool, but the face just ISNT him. Which sucks, that was one of the reasons I was looking forward to this series was to see how they worked Lockdown in....well, now I don't like Lockdown. I'm starting to not be a fan of Milne's work actually.

    Now THAT is Lockdown. He needs a death mask of some kind though; the young face still throws it off.

    On a related note, I would LOVE to see Milne's take on RotF Lockdown, not G1 styled, but with the movie aesthetic. I have a feeling he'd make that look absolutely badass, if only because movie art is the one thing he truly excels at.
