    How would you feel if lockdown was in Tf Prime. I'd love for him to be in it since he's like one of my favorite Cons!

    I'd rather have another character. Lockdown was interesting in Animated because he had beef with Ratchet and Prowl, thus developing them. Putting him in Prime would just feel slapped in. Plus, they already did "I HUNT STUFF FOR MAH TROPHY COLLECTION" with Airachnid, and that didn't go far.

    Lockdown needs to stay where he belongs.

    Don't get me wrong, I like the character, but he needs to stay in Animated.

    The only continuity where he's relevent.

    He already is. At least, by the wiki's inclusion of Bot Shots in Prime.

    Hhhmmm. He could still work out though and not be like Airachnid and be all trophy collecting.

    I'm going to say the same thing here I say in any of these threads I post in;
    sure, why not?

    Don't get me wrong, I like Lockdown, I'm just not hyped enough to really care whether or not he makes it. If they put him in in a way that seems shoehorned, no. If they put him in the show in a manner that flows well and has impact, ok.

    You guys don't get how perfect he is? Think about it, what kind of trophies does Lockdown collect? Not grotesque parts like Arachnid. He collects weapons and other modifications.
    What does that sound like? Yes.....it sounds like the RELICS.

    If they include Lockdown with his usual beef with Ratchet (I think it worked rather well) and have Lockdown stealing from both sides (he's not 100% on Megatron's side. He just prefers working for Megatron in order to have $$$), then Lockdown would work great in the show.
    I can actually picture him starting a rogue's team with Arachnid (who will eventually wake up) and Starscream (dude needs something to do). Of course this alliance won't last but I believe they know that too.
    I could also picture Lockdown and Arachnid shipping.......sorry........

    I wouldn't mind him in Prime, but Airachnid already has traits of his. And if they try to include him with different traits, then it wouldn't be Lockdown.

    I honestly wasn't a big fan of Lockdown in Animated, and would rather not see him make an appearance in Prime. Frankly, I'd prefer the Jet Twins to show up before Lockdown does.

    For Lockdown to work in TFP, he'll have to be different from the Animated take. My idea would be he's ticked off at Arachnid, who left his group not long after she left Megatron's team.

    Maybe call his bounty hunter faction the Predacons and also give a little bit more history on Arachnid. Have him not care about the war nor Megatron or Prime. Somebody that only seeks to take the life of another that betray his group.

    In Prime? Yes sir.

    Get David Sobolov to voice him, but make him & sound like Lobo from DC. A character that he voiced.

    He was also in the IDW drift miniseries. I thought it was a solid book. Dai Atlas, Lockdown, Drift. Adventures on distant Alien Worlds inhabited by Transformers refugees. And insight into how other races in the galaxy view Transformers as those Power Mad robots that destroy every world they fight on.
    Lockdown had a major ultimatum thread in that book's story and was a physical match for Drift in Combat.

    As for how he would work in Prime. Even with Airachnid collecting Trophy's. She collected Heads, and that kind of gives her a Hunter Witch implicity, that seperates her from blackarchnia more; Because she's Vain Selfish beautiful Evil. Lockdown's Treasures on the other hand, Are Mods and weapons. Things that we have been collecting from cybertron relics on Prime since season 1. There is also the difference that lockdown can accept contracts for a Price and will backstab you if the other side pays him more. An interesting angle that Animated got to touch on in Season 3 with Sentinel Prime's Deal.

    I'd like to see Optimus Prime weigh his Dire options with a token Lockdown that can go places the Autobots can't. Whether its into the depths of the Nemesis or with Lockdown's seedy contacts.

    Even better. Use him to recap the Artifacts we have covered. By Arming himself with the Autobot captured Artifacts like the intangibility device, Polariny Guantlet and the immobilizer it would make for an interesting battle to have lockdown use multiple artifacts at once.

    As long as they don't introduce him as a 'bad ass' then water him down like they have several other characters, yes.

    We don't need every single TFA character in Prime and certainly not lame bounty hunter who is also a ninja who is also Ratchet's rival who is also Prowl's rival who totally plays both sides and blah blah blah.

    Lance Henriksen can feel free to voice anybody in anything though.
