hrmmm, i dont know how i feel about it. the chainsaw is awesome but that color scheme. hrmmm.....hrmmmmmm
wouldnt mind that swindle though!
Looking at the back... they've not fixed his wrist.
wow lockdown = fallen.
and Blurr and Swindle shown at the back of the package...
It's like Big Daddy gone berserk. I can dig it.
That's pants, the one I have is in much better colours and the chainsaw isn't worth buying another for.
Swindle and Blurr though, do want!
I was expecting more of a hot rod style deco. I like this a lot better, but I won't be buying it because I'm done with animated. I'm very disappointed they didn't make the chainsaw an engine and replace the blaster. It would've kept it in continuity with the show. Instead, we just get a funky attachment to the front of the car. I also have a problem with the bio. It ruins lockdown's character, the cool mercenary/bounty hunter that works for no one. Now he's just another decepticon.
Looks like i'm going to be getting three lockdowns, that is if the clear one is true.
Is it safe to assume we should be seeing pictures of the deluxes on the back of the box>
Actually, that's not all that bad looking. I might get him even though I already have the original. I'm also thinking about getting the clear version of him and renaming it Mirage.
If I get this one too, I might rename him. Maybe make the three of them brothers or something. Lockdown (the origional), Mirage (the clear one), and then this one.
Reading his bio and stuff, he's basically Locdown and the Fallen put together, imo. As for the hands, I don't really care either way. It's not like it's all that hard to fix them anyways. The tough one will be the clear one. I hope they fix it for at least that version.
Is it just me, or is the Decepticon logo on his chest purple? It's hard to tell. It looks as if the later waves of Animated will have more "normal" logos on them. Swindle and Shockwave are good examples of this.
Just had an idea for a new name. I think I'll name him Sizzle, after the G2 Laser Rod.
SWINDLE! FINALLY A PICTURE! YES! Sorry, got a little excited there.
Lockdown's either been hitting the beach or the tanning beds. Look at that bronzed face. Spent too much time in the sun, methinks.
Overall, I like. Whether I like it enough to get it in addition to my regular one, we'll have to see.
^ Oh sorry that was my brother.
SWINDLE AND BLURR. nice.
is that a gold and black deco? wtf? and his hands don't look fixed at all...
3 lockdowns we have seen so far...a transparant lockdown in the works this one and the first one. do we really need this many lockdown toys?
So Blazing Lockdown can detect cloaked bots, and Stealth Lockdown is cloaked.
You don't know that. The pic is a official hasbro shot and could differ from the actual product. (as those images usually do)
Yep... Lockdown = The Fallen here alright. A very cool deco.
That and Hasbro confirmed at SDCC that the wrists were designed to not lock out and stay at the odd angle.
That being said, I'm not a humongo fan of the original (who is sitting proudly on my Animated shelf right now facing off against Dlx Ratchet). The vehicle mode is a lot less obvious than I expected when I heard "flames", but it doesn't seem different enough to me.
The chainsaw is nice, but not sure if that alone is worth another $10. I think I'll spend my money on Blurr and Swindle instead.
