    I'm planning on getting Animated Lockdown, as all I've ever heard for him is praise, and I want him to go alongside my shiny new Animated Ratchet.
    But which version should I go with? The original, black matte finish with green details, or Blazing Lockdown? Hook, or Chainsaw? Green, or Yellow?
    Help me decide!

    Blazing Lockdown, I'd say. He was a hugely unappreciated toy, judging by the hundreds of them that clogged shelves a couple years ago (he was the Skullgrin or Tuner Mudflap of his time). But the black and gold look really sharp, especially in robot mode. And the saw weapon is cooler than the hook.

    The original isn't bad, he's still a nice figure. And he has sort of a nostalgic color scheme if you remember the early nineties (all those blacks, pinks, and neon greens). But I'd probably only pick him over Blazing if you are a stickler for show accuracy.

    Last time I checked you could get both of HTS and Blazing is 6$ on there. But if the original Lockdown isn't there some TRU still got it for t6$ on clearance.
    I'd go for the original one.

    I personally prefer the original, though blazing has a really cool deco. The original just fits my ideal of how the character ought to look.

    I only have the green one, and love it, but I think I'd of liked Blazing better especially for that sweet chainsaw. Besides, for good ol' green Lockdown, I have the RotF one.

    Original one is pretty nice. They're essentially the same figure, although.

    Original. The colors work better. You really need to have the Reprolabel decals to make Blazing Lockdown look good.

    Animated is cheap. Get both.

    Then get the NEST version for good measure.

    ROTF Lockdown doesn't have the hand issues, and is a much tighter mould imho, I have animated Lockdown too, but unless you love animated stylings, i'd suggest the ROTF mould...

    The I think the original scheme is better; the reprolabel set makes that look even cooler, and I just personally prefer the hook over the gold chainsaw.

    In which case Blazing Lockdown at least is different enough to ROTF Lockdown to be worthwhile, and its a chainsaw which is never bad...

    The ROTF version is way better than animateds one, and as I mentioned lacks animated LD's multiple design 'issues'

    Original. I never really saw much of the need to buy the Blazing version.

    Honestly, I like the hook hand much better than the saw hand. The saw hand can't fold up inside car mode like the hook can, and the saw looks silly sticking out the front of the car.

    When I decided I wanted lockdown, there was only Blazing Lockdowns left so I got him... when I decided I needed ROTF Lockdown too, I could only get Axor.

    I still recommend both; great figures, I'm just pissed that I was too slow to pick up the originals.

    Get the original. If you end up with both, make sure you get the Lockdown sticker upgrade set from Reprolabels: Reprolabels.com -
    It's magical.
