    TF08 have updated their page for Blazing Lockdown with out of box photos.

    08¶¯»*¼ÓÇ¿¼¶³ãÈȽû±Õ - ±äÐνð¸Õ08¶¯»*¹úÄÚ·ÇÖøÃûרÌâÕ¾ TransFormers Animated

    A few things to note; the wrists are unchanged from the first release, the blade does not store under the car and the figure does not appear to have the hook from the original. There are also some missing paint apps like the marking on his forehead and the front bumper of the alt mode.

    Don't really like it. The vehicle mode looks really plain with all that black and only a little bit of gold and the robot mode has lost the cool asymmetrical colors that Lockdown is known for. The chainsaw is pretty cool, but it sucks that it doesn't tuck away in any fashion. And I see that the hands weren't fixed after all. That last one is a big strike against it.

    Someone needs to chrome all that cheap looking gold plastic. It is one of my pet peeves with modern transformers - the cheapo supopsed-to-resemble-metal plastics that they use.

    I'll probably pick it up. I love the mold and I really love the chainsaw!

    The cheapo supposed-to-resemble-metal plastic is used because it's a lot more durable than chromed plastic. Look at the Transmetals or vintage G1 toys - the chrome bits eventually get worn away or start to flake off on their own. Cheapo supposed-to-resemble-metal plastic is forever.

    i dont really like the mould anyway and that repaint isnt inspiring at all, that ugly brown plastic is supposed to denote metal!!

    still, animated is mostly great.

    The pale gold plastic used looks really bad. The gold plastic used on Prowl's shurikens would have looked a lot better on this figure.

    Overall, a rather weak attempt by Hasbro at a redeco. Even the chainsaw can't save this figure for me.

    Pass.

    i very much doubt that long term durability was a deciding factor on this look, it does however have that effect in practice. unfortunately it means the toy looks kind of crappy to begin with and stays that way, at least chromed parts (on toys that look good chromed) looked good to begin with.

    They've took what was a really nice original paintjob and then given it this bland new one. Urgh.

    Karpo, no thats blazing Lockdown read the thread title.

    and yeah no improvements over the original mold. if i was to get this one all i would do is put the other arm shieldy thing on his other hand cos i dont feel like playing dig out the plastic out of the back of the hand game.

    I'm assuming you mean the cross sell pic on the back of Blazing Lockdown's card. No, we first saw stock pics of Swindle's alt and bot modes from a slide at SDCC. Yes, he does look awesome.

    Unfixed hands + crappy looking paintjob = not worth the chainsaw. Congratulations Hasbro - you've just created the first Animated figure I don't want to buy.

    :( 

    It looked good on the box, but here? It looks not so good.

    Thank the Matrix for that - I won't be compelled to buy him now just for the chainsaw.

    Do not like. The Lockdown mold is nice, but not nearly as nice as Habro makes it out to be. Whats with all those repaints?

    I hope Swindle shows up soon. Thats a figure i can get behind.
