    Seems alright, but I wish the legs could've retained a similar level of bulk compared to the Animated one. They just look really frail.

    Well, the legs on the toy itself are quite sturdy, although they DO look a little too skinny for the rest of the bot.

    Hmmm... very nice in both modes. I actually dig the skinny look, it looks creepy, which suits him. Can't wait to get him.

    Those loose ball joints are a mess.

    I'm torn over this one. Looks a little too much like the Animated version to me. I'll have to see him in person before deciding.

    Wow, A Lockdown who's legs dont completely suck! I will probably pick this up just because of that.

    Great review Peaugh! And don't worry about the pauses. It gives us more time to look at the figure. xD

    I really like this figure. The way he transforms and how tall he is are bonuses IMO. The neck feature is cool and the way the arms transform are very unique. I was kinda concerned that I won't like his legs, but now I'm getting to like them.

    Regarding the loose ball joints, I have to say that's quite a major downside to this figure. But it's easily fixable with super glue, so I'm not too bothered by it. :) 

    Overall a great figure. Thanks Peaugh!

    Despite his misgivings, How can I possibly fault Lockdown? He's one of my favourite characters of modern times & therefore he's a "must-buy" :) .

    He'll probably also be the last ROTF/NEST figure I'll obtain for the foreseeable time-being (being that I already have-me a Bludgeon) - The rest of the upcoming ROTF figures just don't do it for me.

    Oooh, tough call, they're both about the same level of like for me. I want to say if I could only pick one, it'd be Lockdown, but he DOES still have the "OMG JUST GOT NEW TOY" factor, so that opinion may change. Bludgeon's also a great figure and less prone to faulty/loose ball joints and popping apart. If you can get both, do it. Pick just one? Ask me in a week when the newness has worn off and I can give you a much more unbiased opinion.

    Yeah, it's a bit of a letdown. Also, what is it with Lockdown and bad ball joints. On his Animated figure it was his hips, on ROTF it's his shoulders. Is Lockdown not allowed to have a full set of working limbs in any continuity?

    I hope you don't mind me answering this question. IMO if you could choose only one of the two, I would recommend Lockdown for these reasons:

    1. He's cheaper as he's a Deluxe figure.

    2. His asthetic looks are nicer unless you prefer the figure to be bulky like Movie Ironhide, Classics Inferno or Bludgeon.

    3. Posability. From pics and videos I notice that ROTF Lockdown has better posability than Bludgeon.. I could be wrong though.

    4. Less Kibble. I think Bludgeon's tank backpack is okay, but Lockdown does not have any back kibble, or any kibble at all. So if you don't like kibbles, then Lockdown's the better choice.




    It's not just Lockdown. Other newer TFs suffer from loose ball joints. It's more like Hasbro's QC isn't as good anymore and should've been looked into since the 2007 Movie toys came out..

    But if it's just the ball joints, it's not such a big deal. If it's parts not locking into place, that's something to be disappointed about. :mad  So far ROTF Brawn's things-not-locking-into-place issue isn't so bad IMO...

    Not too bothered about the balljoints right now. Yeah, it's bad quality control, but will have to wait to see if all figures have this problem. Nothing a little glue or nail polish can't fix, unlike Animated Lockdown, whose legs are guaranteed to pop off the joint because of the brute force you have to apply to get them loose :lol 

    Will get him!
