    I wasn't sure whether or not to post this in the existing thread, but for the sake of discussion I'll just keep them separate.

    Lockdown reminds me of Sideways from the Cybertron cartoon, except maybe a little more ruthless. Could he be like a bounty hunter?

    I like the line in the Bumblebee bio.. "Nothing scares Bumblebee, not even Megatron" honestly I'd like to see him hose Megatron in a fight. Not destroy him, but just put up a good fight.

    I can't wait to see the cartoon and some of the toys.... :)

    Lockdown is a TOTAL badass. However, I DO wish people would get the expression RIGHT; it's "couldn't care less"....!

    I can just see Lockdown siding with anyone that tries to betray Megatron in the cartoon.
    And we all KNOW somebody gonna try do it, every Megatron is bound to getting betrayed.

    No surprises there. But cool, nonetheless!
    Yeah. I cringed at that, too.

    I've read that both versions are considered "correct" now, but only because the incorrect form is so frequent.

    I guess "nucular" will make it to the list of "incorrect but accepted due to sheer number of uses" soon as well.

    Why is "could care less" wrong? It implies that even though you are already at a state of rock bottom apathy, you might end up caring even less so just be thankful.

    Its like saying "I could hate you even more, but I'm just being nice" or something.

    It's wrong because that's just not the expression, nor the meaning of the expression... it's supposed to mean that you really really really are at the inverse zenith of caring, not holding back to be "nice"... ie "I could not care less, even if I tried. There is no measure for that level of uncaring-ness." :) 

    However, you make a strong defense of the incorrect form... I never thought of it that way, but I suppose that reasoning might be why people use the expression that way.

    On the toys... Hmmm... so BB really is just Hotshot/HotRod all over again, but in Bumblebee's trappings. How very to the exxxtreme of them.

    Doesn't bug me that much, but I do miss the old Bumblebee a bit.

    Lockdown sounds awesome. I love his quote, too. I can hear him saying that in a really rough, gravelly voice.

    Thanks for posting those images. The Lockdown description does sound intriguing.

    Before we even knew what Lockdown was I figured he was more of a loner/bounty hunter then a loyal minion just by the look on his face.

    BB is the obligatory Hot Shot character and Lockdown is generic badass alpha loner. Yawn. Also:

    That need to return BB to his roots...no more of this Hot Shot crap...there are enough of those annoying charachters in the TF verse. I want Bumblebee to go back to being the little pussy who get's is butt kicked by a kitty cat that turns into a casette. The way he was meant to be.

    Lockdown is gonna pwn, can't wait to get his figure. And the upgrades part makes it even cooler, I wonder if he'll get a whole new reformat somewhere down the line or maybe optional weapon parts you can buy =D

    Lockdown is already my most favourite new character in a long time. And when you think about, there have been very few "new" characters, everything lately has been just rehashing of G1 stuff, nice to see some new blood.

    Oh, and Lockdown is a wicked-ass name.
