    Now I hate the whole Mech Tech gimmick but Roadbuster's ain't so bad. I just realized it makes so much sense to be on Lockdown. Afterall the mech tech weapon is a chainsaw...and Lockdown had a chainsaw in Animated.

    So I figure a ROTF Lockdown in a DOTM deco with the Roadbuster Mechtech would be PERFECT. If i had a spare Lockdown I'd try to mod it myself, actually.

    yeah, that would make a lot of sense. It works for the character. It would also be a good excuse to re-release a great figure. Mightn't be worth the trouble adding mechtech ports though.

    That could look good, but you could also remold another figure: Topspin. Give him a new head, lower arms, maybe new feet and Roadbuster's chainsaw, and you have a wicked figure. Only problem is that there's already a movie verse Lockdown, but hell, maybe this could be an upgrade for him. Incidentally it would also closer resemble his TFA incarnation.

    I think he meant adding the chainsaw from RB to the pre-existing Lockdown

    This. I figure since Hasbro thinks re-releasing characters into the next movie is generally a good idea(Brawl in ROTF, Barricade in ROTF and DOTM, Jolt in DOTM), then why not Lockdown? The RPM Speed Stars one got a pretty wicked paint app in the DS game special edition. I'd love to see a Deluxe there with the Roadbuster Mech Tech and the DOTM Speed Stars deco.

    Title was poorly worded. It should read "Wouldn't a DOTM deco'd Lockdown w/Roadbuster Mech Tech be awesome?"

    As nice as that is....it doesn't feel too much like Lockdown in my eyes. Still got bits of the NASCAR style that I can't really see Lockdown as.
