    so now that ROTF Lockdown is part of the G1 IDWverse as seen at the end of Drift #2 will you now display Lockdown with your CHUG lineup?

    Good job spoiling the spoiler in the title :lol 

    I haven't read the issue yet, but I probably won't. Not that I really have a G1 shelf anyway, I kinda have my bots mixed. He still feels movie to me.

    Nope. He´s too different. I don´t think he fits.

    Got him posed fighting my Drift as we speak. His scavenged, Frankenstein's monster nature can excuse some of the incongruity between styles. Not sure where I'll put him in the long term though. Probably with my Movie toys since he's just a little bit too far from the style of Drift.

    Still putting him with my movie toys. His face is too movie-styled and his limbs are too skinny to be considered classics (IMO).

    Perhaps an Alternate Transformation can fix his "Movie-nes".

    Yup, I always planned to put him with Classics, even before the comic (which I likely won't read anyway). He's enough of an oddball character that the aesthetic divide is lessened. Probably will do the same with Axor.... he'll be "grandfathered" in by Lockdown's inclusion. :)

    No, everything screams movie. The chicken legs, the a cemetery, the skeletal robot more, the massive amounts of mechanical details.

    NO!

    I stuck him behind Drift. Liked the look of it on the cover, and liked the idea of Lockdown in the G1verse.

    You know guys, why don't we all just display all of our figures together, just say the Multiverse exploded so you don't have to keep up with these "Well it looks Classics enough for me" excuses :p

    No. I don't like the character (or the toy, for that matter), so he stays on my secondary RotF shelf, tucked mostly out of sight between Mindwipe and Leader Starscream.

    I thought about, if most for the reasons Sol Fury stated. But he is just way too movie stylized to fit in with them.

    I've got my Lockdown sitting on the same shelf as G1 Landmine, Animated Shockwave, G2 Road Pig, Energon Cliffjumper, and Star Convoy. The Multiverse Just crapped its pants.

    If I HAD an ROTF Lockdown it'd be on my movie shelf, but I never got a Lockdown because Tuner Mudflap clogged shelves and Wave 2 of NEST never came out here because of that.

    It's funny, I think Lockdown fits with my Classics more than Bludgeon does.

    He's not supposed to look like a standard bot. He used to be an Autobot but changed his physical looks, now he resembles a kind of Frankenstein monster. He isn't a true part of any faction.

    Scantron, you don't like the toy!? I would disagree and go so far as to say he is one of my FAVORITE movie toys! as for displaying him, he has been battling drift since the two fist shared my shelf! :)
