    Yesterday, I saw the target deluxe + legends (along with the movie and universe 2 packs which both look better in person) and I can only get one. Before you answer, take this in your opinon.

    Ratchet: I LOVE this mold. I think the deco is pretty cool, and the legends look nice. And theyre starscream and prowl, who are both jawesome.

    Lockdown: Im meh on the mold. I dont like it to much, but then theres the deco. I ABSOLUTLEY LOVE CLEAR FIGURES. Then theres the legends, which look okay.

    Hand issue aside, I'd go with Lockdown. (In fact, I did.)

    Go with Lockdown. He's an awesome figure who looks really good in both modes. I'm always amazed at the engineering that went into making him so incredibly huge in bot mode.

    Ratchet's a cool toy, but I far prefer Lockdown in terms of aesthetics and engineering (plus my Lockdown doesn't have weak heel spurs and a spring-loaded hand gimmick that pops out if I look at it funny).

    Personally, I'd get neither man. Save your cash for something super awesome like voyager animated Shockwave, or hit up some deluxes on sale at Wal-mart. The original decos of Ratchet and Lockdown are far superior.

    You know what, I face the same dilemma only a couple of weeks ago. I picked up Animated Jazz instead.

    If I come across them again and I have money with me (unlikely) I'll get clear Lockdown. I am sure I can find those Legends later by themselves.

    Go with Lockdown.He looks good in car mode,but better in robot mode.Plus he's close to the size of Longarm/Shockwave.For the price of a deluxe,I think it's worth it.
