Excellent review, thanks!

It's awesome how he's tall like the Animated Lockdown. And I really like the car mode. So sleek and evil-looking.

Looks like I should have pre-ordered him as well. Hope he doesn't prove to tough to find.

Wasn't planning on getting him, but I think I'm now officially sold.

Great review but missing just one thing. You didn't comment on his Transformation(difficulty, fun factor, smooth, etc.). That is technically one of the most important parts of a transformer lol. How is his transformation?

I figured I'd leave that up to the video reviews, since those show it better than pictures do.
However, his Transformation (I thought) is pretty smooth. It's not overly simple or difficult; it's just right.
Basically, you separate the side panels, detach the engine, pull the legs down and adjust them, rotate the arms up and position them and the shoulder panels, attach the engine to his arm, fold the roof down over his chest, and position his head. His left arm sometimes pops off when you adjust the shoulder panel, but it's not a big problem. There are also some alternate transformations that you can do: The wheels on his hips rotate backwards 90 degrees, but I thought that looked kind of lame and besides, TFA Lockdown has wheels on his hips. Also, you can rotate the window/door panel on his right arm 360 degrees; I'm not sure exactly how it's "supposed" to go, but I like it the way it is in my pics.
He's on-par with other RotF Deluxes, I think, as far as transforming goes.

Thanks for the pictures, I can't wait to get him.

So, he's brown rather than black. ROTF Brawn is also brown. Brown must be the new Allspark blue.
