    I thought he was TERRIBLE. Like all of the deluxes, he comes in vehicle mode. Cool mode, have to admit. Then, you transform him. "Wow, he's huge!" I said. Once his size wears off, you can find all of his problems. First, both of his legs constantly fall over. I thought ill deal with it, BUT THEN COMES THE LEG POSE ABILITY. He's got what, a knee? And not even a good one. Its part of the transformation. His arms are okay, and then there's the head. Its a great sculpt. But, when you turn it, he's constantly looking up. WHAT THE HELL?:banghead:

    He's definately not one of the best molds to come from Animated, but in my opinion his robot mode is just so menacing that an Animated 'Con display looks incomplete without it.

    I like him. He's not great, but he's good. Better leg posability would have been nice, but I guess we had to pay some price for getting such a tall robot out of a Deluxe.

    Because he's way too big for $10, he looks badass, and his EMP fits on Ratchet.

    I too, like Lockdown. Sure, he can't wow you in robot mode apart from being 6'ridiculous" but he's got a really fun transformation back and forth and he looks sweet in car mode. Good enough for me.

    Cool vehicle mode, not particularly good robot mode.

    Overrated in my opinion, thanks to a popular portayal in the cartoon and a transformation that results in an unusually tall robot mode.

    He was my number one want when the Animated line started and when I got him I wasn't disappointed (got Bumblebee at the same time, who did kinda disappoint a bit). Nice chunky alt mode and large interesting robot mode. Awful hand joints, sure. Limited knees, yes. But there's an appeal that's hard to put into words.

    I guess he's the Marmite of the TF:A line. You either like him or not.

    Lockdown is cool. Probably the tallest deluxe figure ever! And he's got a unique look.
