Sure looks like it, taking on the movie toy's style too.
DJW107PRIME
Holy cow lock down?!?!? Hell yea!

So it looks like Skywatch and the Autobots are outted to the public in #12. I wonder who the betrayer will be.

And if that's Lockdown on the cover of Drift, then color me very interested in this new mini!
Acteon
I wish they'd update the digital stores for those of us who have trouble getting the comics...
King Henrik
the most interesting thing of that entire solicitation was that cliffjumper gets named dropped over everyone else in the prime description...
Ace Convoy
sector 7 novel sounds good as well.
Thundershot
HOLY CRAP!

Lockdown in G1!

It's my fault. I put Movie Lockdown on my Classics shelf with Bludgeon months ago.

Odd that Cliffjumper is getting top billing and not Bumblebee for TFP...
Fit For natalie
Be funny if it turns out that Lockdown murdered Drift's sensei, too.
Fort Max
Sector seven series sounds good, might have to get the tpb when it's done.

Is this still the 'ongoing' series? I haven't paid attention to it, but if those are new faces I just may.

Yeah, and then Oil Slick tries to kill Ratchet.
Toxicon
G1 Lockdown? Aww hell yeah.
G1Wheeljack
I'm pretty sure Bots of Science was already released as Animated: The Arrival #3. Wonder why it's being re-released. And holy crap LOCKDOWN BABY! Now I can't decide which cover to get, it's either Lockdown or Dai Atlas

Yes, it is. However, many have not liked the direction the story has gone and especially the slow pacing. Plus, there are still inconsistencies to the robot designs from one issue to the next depending on who the artist is that is drawing them.
FanimusMaximus
Ok Im getting kinda pissed by only seeing Transformers Prime Bumblebee.
KAGE
I was hoping they would drop Lockdown in G1

Ra88
I would be more happy with Lockdown if he weren't in a Drift comic. Terrific.

The Ongoing cover has...Really bad art, but nowhere neara s bad as this:



Seriously, what the hell? I can't decide if it's pathetic or just downright terrible. It looks like it was made by someone who just got Photoshop and mucked around with it!

Just wait till tomorrow. There's going to be a TF: Prime character reveal teaser, or something to that effect.
Bumblebee
FINALLY! The Lockdown cover was the one I was really excited about and FINALLY it's revealed XD. I was kinda thinking they were going to save the reveal for the actual IDW Panel, but oh well; G1 Lockdown is badass
Ra88
I hope that Lockdown will have a faceplate of sorts at least. I don't think Milne's face style would work for that character.
Paxtin
Since I don't follow the comic books that closely I'm a little late to the party, I'm only just now finding out about G1/comic Lockdown. And in Drift's book no less.

The two newbies to the TF universe face off. lol
Darkspeed
FANWANK!

Seriously though, this just made me very excited for this mini-series... First Dai Atlas, now Lockdown... Should be a brutal series to read!
Bass X0
Generations Lockdown to be announced at Botcon 2011.

Eh, I donno. It looks like they just took the design of the movie fig and tweaked it a bit to fit the book's "G1" aesthetic.

But hey, a Generations Lockdown would not be unwanted.
