    Will you be making different options for the hook hand? I'd love to see a rotf style hook, bigger and more menacing

    Probably not.
    The hook I've designed fits in the space available for it on this figure in vehicle mode. Any bigger and it would have to be removed for transformation.

    So you'll make this awesomeness available to buy for the public to make their own lockdowns.

    I love you.(sexually)

    I had some time today to work on my head design. This is what I'll be aiming for with the sculpt.

    Not that I'm complaining, but shouldn't TFP Lockdown have no nose? Just a minor nitpick though, that design looks ace.

    But then he'd look, well, kinda stupid.

    There needs to be something nose-like there for most designs. Even TFA understood that with the little cat nose/helmet things. I think his design looks perfect.

    Now that you point it out, it does seem to be a rule of TFP design that noses are only helm elements and not actual noses. That makes sense since they wouldn't need to be able to smell anything.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I like it much more without the nose.

    Question do I need clothes on when I buy this from you




    noses are pointless on a transformer. But animated still ruled.

    i'm definitely intrigued. you sold me on the vehicle mode but i just can't picture the bot mode.

    as far as the nose thing goes, maybe you could extend his tattoos just a little bit? like... just a tiny bit inwards at a 45 degree angle? if i had paint on this computer i'd show you what i mean lol

    This is really cool! I also have to admit I was a bit disturbed, to my own surprise, at the poor Bumblebee's getting essentially cannibalized while Lockdown snarked to them about it. Damn :lol

    He does look good. :)  As for the nose thing well that's not fully true. We have characters like Ratchet,Breakdown,Wheeljack,and Cliffjumper that actually do a similar thing for most of the TFA helmets where they do evoke noses so in case if you change your mind it won't be that far off.

    Really want to see this finished! Love the 3d designs you have going.:drool: 
    And if you need input on the nose, I say keep it. You could add a generations/IDW style helmet if you wanted (couldn't help but test it, not perfect):

    Keep up the good work mate!

    Answer, no. Clothes are always optional, but void where prohibited.
    Once I've nailed down the head design I'll do good mock-ups of complete vehicle and robot modes that I'll use for figuring out the paint job.
    That's just my Bumblebee fatigue surfacing.
    Yeah, that's what I was saying the case was on TFP. Any bot nose there is an extension of the brow on their helmet, not an actual nose structure. TFA Lockdown doesn't have a helmet, so it works for me to have him noseless like Prime or Megatron.
    Those are really cool ideas. Thanks for the input and taking the time to put that together. It's definitely something I'm considering.
