    I have the original Lockdown and plan on getting Blazing Lockdown for a few reasons.

    1) So both my regular Lockdown and Ratchet can have EMP blasters.
    2) So my regular Lockdown can duel weild both the hook and the chainsaw
    3) I mostly want to get him so he can be a counterpart to Samurai Prowl.

    I have two of the original lockdown, and one stealth lockdown. When I find it I'll pick up blazing lockdown.

    The old reason was so I'd have a spare should the thigh rotation friction piece give out.:redface2: 

    The new reason is because I want to set up the four of them as a hunting party, two lockdown shell mods seemingly lead by the command blazing lockdown unit. While shadow lockdown, the modified original maintains a invisible watch over the team.

    The trap is set.

    I have Blazing Lockdown. The colors are great, as nice if not better than the original. I'm not a fan of the chainsaw, though. It has a hollow side, which I can't stand in an accessory and doesn't stay locked in place too well.
    The joints are tighter than my original and stealth versions, which makes it even better.
    If only the hands would have been fixed.

    i bought the original lockdown, and broke both his hands. I gave it so my son and bought another, and i plan on getting stealth lockdown when i see him. The reason is i've never had or seen a tf made with clear plastic. But i don't plan on getting blazing lockdown, he just doesn't interest me.

    I'm going to get Blazing Lockdown because it looks better than the original (which I don't own).

    I was thinking about getting the orignal but then we saw our first peek at Blazing Lockdown so I've been waiting on him instead.

    I have the original only. Don't plan on getting either of the other two. As much as I dig the figure, I don't see any reasons for getting him again... and again. I'm not getting any character repaints for the Animated line. Only repaints for different characters (Skywarp, Cliffjumper etc).

    I am debating getting another of the original figures since I was a bit hard on the first one's left wrist and slightly broke it. That kinda really bugs me. Might use the first one as my first Junkion exchange here.

    I bought the original Lockdown and my g/f got me the Stealth which I find totally awesome with the clear plastic!!!

    As for the Blazing Lockdown, I'm going to have to put a wait on that. I've seen at one of NYC comic shops for Voyager prices. - No way!!! I'll have to wait when it hits TRU or Kmart, etc...

    One is enough I don't buy repaints. I wouldn't mind picking up another EMP blaster for Ratchet though.

    Yes those are really neat pics of all three molds.

    I am curious why people dislike this figure. He has a menacing look and overall modest poseabililty.

    He is a darn cool character on the show with his history with Ratchet and entanglements with Prowl.
