    I keep getting a Death's Head vibe from this toy. Could the old comic character have been some inspiration to the Animated character, and the RotF toy a "classics Death's Head"? I'm gonna repurpose him on my shelf. He'll go good with Straxxus/Darkmount.

    Yeah, I can see it.

    Funny, Lockdown's ship's name is the Death's Head. (In Animated)

    ROTF Lockdown is my Generations Lockdown for me.

    But how would it be if Lockdown said "yes?" after every sentence?

    Yeah, I can see that... But really the first thing that came to mind upon just now seeing his visage was HFtD Brimstone. Must be the "teeth" feature.

    Wasn't trying to, but maybe it was a subconscious thing? I mean, if you're designing a bounty hunter TF, how many other bounty hunter TFs have there been that could be in the very back of your mind? Besides, his Animated toy's head doesn't look as much like DH as the RotF one. It's the things that are different between the two that scream Death's Head to me. Kinda like they Death's Head-ed up the Animated character.

    Lockdown's cooler.

    ROTF Lockdown is on my classics shelf as Lockdown. His look fits due to the character's obsession with mods.
