    So I'm gonna put a rubsign on animated lockdown, bit more show accurate. Should I go for Autobot or Decepticon. Undecided. Leaning toward autobot...

    I would go Autobot, based on the character's background.

    Why would you even consider an Autobot symbol for Lockdown? He's a Decepticon if anything at all.

    No, he was actually an Autobot - he joined trained under Yoketron in the Cyber-Ninja Corps. He was kicked out for reasons never fully explained and became a Decepticon-allied bounty hunter.

    To me he's the Death's Head of Animated.

    I vote 'other'.

    Well, more like Decepticons were more of the type to hire his services. He didn't seem to have any qualms accepting a paycheck from Sentinel Prime.

    exactly the reasoning I had, however it does feel weird putting a bot symbol over a con one. Despite the fction it just seems like he'd come across as pretending to be a good guy!

    Yeah, he was never truly a Decepticon, he just worked for them a lot of the time, whereas he once was a fully-fledged Autobot. So 'bot it is, I would say. Plus as you say, he seems like the type who'd use it to earn his prey's trust. :D

    One can't be a Decepticon ally and an Autobot at the same time. Or am I wrong somehow?

    As others have said. He was an autobot, and basically quit in a special way. He is now neither Autobot or Decepticon, he just works for whoever will hire him. There's no reason to put a Decepticon rubsign on him, he has never been a Decepticon, and will never be one. He was, however, an Autobot.

    exactly. seems you can be both. Way i see it Lockdown is a former autobot. thus he would have a blacked out bot symbot, like Wasp did. In fact didn'tockdown explicitly say that he WASN'T a decepticon?

    Yes, but he was more an Autobot than he ever was a Decepticon.

    I agree, he was an incredibly ruthless immoral character, but an autobot nonetheless. It's not like the animated autobots were above such actions. Optimus was the exception in many regards, and that lead him to be held in quite high esteem by those who met him.

    He is not, nor has he ever been a Decepticon. He's worked for Decepticons who hired him, but that's it. On the other hand, he clearly has an Autobot background. So, Autobot.
