    Not the Fallen, as only a Prime was supposed to be able to do that.

    But everybody else, probably. He'd have some gadget up his sleeve.

    Vs Megatron absolutely

    The Fallen would be an interesting fight, he was very powerful, but fell victim to cliche Michael Bay-villain-death

    Sentinel Yes

    He seemed like a pretty skilled fighter, plus he's got a bunch of weapons but I think Sentinel is the best, when not getting sucker punched.

    Remember how the Fallen had basically magical powers but they cut out as soon as Optimus got within attack range? That's what they meant that only a Prime could defeat him.

    Lockdown isn't a Prime, so he'd get the full brunt of the Fallen's hax power.

    Yeah but it could have been a better fight. But I would still pick the Fallen against Lockdown based on that logic

    Hmm, I don't think so.

    Sentinel is the best fighter I've seen in these movies.

    Movie1 Megatron is an absolute brute force, unless Lockdown finds a way to distract him, there's no way that he'll be able to defeat him.

    Well, if there wasn't a stupid rule like "only a Prime can stop me", I think Lockdown would beat the crap out of him. But first, he should find a way to stop his magic powers. Break his staff maybe?

    ^ Hock Jetfire's parts? Carry around a Prime's spark? He appeared to take and store Ratchet's.

    In a stand up fight, I think he could handle Megatron but not Sentinel. The Fallen, definitely not because Lockdown isn't a Prime - and I don't think Lockdown would ever even try for something like The Fallen.

    Megatron and Optimus were pretty damned even, throughout the first trilogy it was back and forth who came out on top in fights....so I think Lockdown could stand toe-to-toe with Megatron if it came to it.

    Sentinal would kick the crap out of Lockdown if they went toe-to-toe. Sentinal was by far the better fighter when compared to Prime and Megs who seem even with Lockdown.

    But none of that really matters because Lockdown, apart from that final battle with Prime, doesn't go toe-to-toe with his opponent. He hunts, he flushes his prey out, and then he disables or kills them with one or two extremely well aimed shots. He's basically a big game hunter. He was shown multiple times in the film setting up an elaborate hunt, using the humans like hunting dogs, flushing out his prey and driving it straight to him.

    It's unfortunate that they killed him off, because he was SO fantastic. Hopefully we'll get Axer next.

    Above all else, I would LOVE to see the fiction explore how Lockdown managed to capture all of the Knights (Dinobots). That would be a really great comic book subject matter.
