    Even though some may share names with characters from previous series (Bulkhead=Energon.) As characters themselves, which of these guys would you want to see live on and/or possibly crossover into other TF series?

    Personally, I'd really like to see Lockdown become a character that you'd see show up again in future shows/comics.

    I always looked at Lockdown as being a reimagening of Deaths Head. Both bounty hunters, both have interchangable limbs, both have that spikey stud thing going on and Deaths Head had a skull kinda head and Lockdown has a kind kind of skull looking face going ong.
    True, lockdown is a transformer and Deaths Head couldn't transform and even got shrunk down to human size.

    But both very similar, yes?

    Yeah, that did cross my mind some time ago. Lockdown is a heavy Deaths head homage. Though still within his own right, a new character.
    Also, I don't think Deaths head belongs to Hasbro, I believe legally the Deaths head character still belongs to Marvel...But don't quote me on that, I could be way off.
    Still, Lockdown's a great way to reincarnate that character back into Transformers.

    I voted for Lockdown. I just think he's a badass character, and I would love to see Lance Henriksen continue to do the voice in any future series.

    Wow...i'm the only one wanting more bulkhead? Poor guy doesn't get enough time to kickass, yet i think the dullard sans spacebridges is pretty intersting.

    Lugnut. I love the fact that he is such a "All Hail Megatron" zealot. Just like BW Inferno

    LUGNUT. Why is Lockdown winning!? THERE IS NO OTHER!

    Also, Prowl is technically a new character. He's just using an old name.

    Definitely Bulkhead. He's a very well-rounded character and he's of a type that I don't recall seeing in any TF series before now. Lugnut reminds me a lot of BW Inferno (minus some of Inferno's tics), in that he's a supremely loyal powerhouse who sometimes annoys his leader and has increasingly become comic relief. Lockdown has always felt like a very generic character and I've never cared for him all that much; his two episodes are some of my least favorite of the TFA cartoon. Beyond that, Lockdown hasn't shown up enough, IMO, to have earned a place in future media. Oilslick, no idea, haven't seen enough of the character.

    It was a tough call, but I eventually went with Lockdown over Lugnut. He's much more unique and interesting a character, IMO.

    You can't vote "yes".

    I would be curious to see a non-Animated-style Bulkhead though.

    Lockdown.

    Much as I love Lugnut, he's too much Soundwave/Shockwave/Inferno to be an all new original idea that should be continued.

    Yeah there was Deaths Hand, but still...Lockdown was a damn cool new character.
