Just those extra few paint apps makes a world of difference.
I am loving my lockdown, but I really wish hasbro had put a little more thought into the weapons. For instance, with just one groove they could have combined into one weapon, or a simple peg or slot in his backpack could have given him a use for the backpack kibble as weapon storage. Also, with just a little bit of extra thought at least one of the weapons could have been stored underneath or inside his car mode. Did they just not care or did they not have the time?
or like every movie toy in existence they simply focused on engineering and didn't care about weapon storage. not even the 3rd party movie bots have weapon storage, so why would hasbro
Your not alone leader megatron is fantastic and was my fav figure from that line

Not true. It’s only since DotM and those idiotic mechtech weapons that they stopped properly integrating weapons. But with weapons FINALLY ditching the gimmicky crap from previous lines and mostly just being molded plastic accessories, they really should have put in the extra minor effort.
I mean, you did say lockdown was there...
I always make it a point to tell the employees NOT to put a figure back on the shelf if I return it. If I’m returning it, there’s probably something wrong with it (like SS starscream who was missing a panel out of the box), and I don’t want some little kid getting it and being upset. Of course if they actually listen or not is a different story...
same here. i always let an employee know. in fact the my last trip to target, someone switched an aoe slash with the tlk version. i pulled a manager aside and made him aware of what had taken place. so he took the box up to the return desk to advise the staff. basically told the guy look, this is common practice nowadays, be on the lookout.. also did the same at walmart. i always let em know. because i hate when people steal transformers makes me mad.
How is everyone liking ss wave 2 deludes. Wondering if I should pick them up if I happen to see them. I always wanted a lockdown and was thinking Peru kill, but it’s a bit more expensive so I wasn’t sure about it but now that this is out will it fill my empty lockdown void? And is jazz pretty good too with that backpack? How bad is it in person.
do you prefer play or display?
the deluxe lockdown is easier to transform and play with, but while he is more accurate than the previous deluxe he's nowhere near the level of detail and accuracy of peru kill.
if you have the money there's a place for both in a collection.
I prefer display for the most part, but the only things I would have to display him with would be mpm optimus, bumblebee and barricade and idk if he scales with them or not. Peru kill that is
He’s too big to scale with anything except wei jiang Commander Optimus. He’s definitely a great toy in SOME ways, especially the innovative and fun transformation and car mode, but his bot mode proportions and articulation leave much to be desired. He has basketball player proportions when he really should look more like a soccer player. Plus his accessories are mostly useless.
Honestly i prefer the alternate head, looks more menacing.
