    Here's Deluxe Lockdown

    Quick Feedbacks
    - The one I have seems a bit loose, specially the left shoulders
    - The details are very nice
    - Love the Lambo mode!
    - I do wish he had some heels as it's a bit hard to pose and he tends to fall on his back
    - No ankle tilts
    - Very similar to DOTM Roadbuster
    - Light piping is almost non-existent
    - The One Step or Flip and Change Lockdown may have captured his movie look better than the deluxe. The alt mode saves it though as its way better the the other 2 incarnations mentioned
    - I like the it a lot but would have been nice if they were somehow able to incorporated a collar as well as (extending) longer legs

    I wish it had a muscular torso like the CG model does.

    Aw, he's with his daddy!

    He's sleeker than I expected. My fear with him was that, since the movie character has so little kibble this figure would suffer from Jazz syndrome and either be a fattie or have a ton of kibble... the fact it all folds together well is nice.

    The size comparison is a bit disappointing, but I guess RotF Lockdown was always gonna tower over just about every other deluxe ever made...

    Looks good.

    Since I don't have the HFTD version, guess the official one will have to be my possible second AOE figure next to Evasion Prime (be it either Evolution 2-pack or the Autobots United 5 pack). :) 

    Though I wonder if they're going to make a Human Alliance version or Voyager class-esque figure.

    Hell, they would've gone the whole hog and make it along the lines of Battle Blades Bumblebee in a few months or so and see if they can incorporate the facemask/gunface in some sort of way.

    It looks cool for a deluxe...I love the car mode.

    Bot mode don't look bad...but it sure as hell does not give any impression of that powerful bot walking towards you down the street.

    The gun head may work well in the movie...but on the toy it looks silly.

    Thanks for the pics!

    BTW..was this a retail find?

    It would've been cool if they'd engineered the head to have his normal face on one side and his "helmet" on the back or something.


    Also, question: How similar is his transformation to DotM Roadbuster? Because from the pics I've seen, it looks to be almost identical.

    ugh. looks like the exact opposite of the CGI model. i get that it's hard to match it exactly but a torso extender or implenting more kibble into the legs would've helped a lot more.

    I was really hoping for more transformation magic like the Animated and ROTF versions where a normal Deluxe-sized car turned into a robot the height of a large Voyager. It was like, Lockdown's thing.

    Local shops here in Malaysia have released them and from the sticker on the box its by Hasbro Malaysia

    Yup the transformation is very, very similar. Slight difference in the shoulder and chest transformation. The back is cleaner for Lockdown as well

    Also, it would have been great if Lockdown's hips were ball jointed like Roadbuster's

    Is it possible to move the car parts on the chest outward, to make a broader chest?

    Thanks for the pic.

    There's something about this guy's proportions that really bugs me and looks "off". Might be the head's too small? Absence of the collar section?

    I want to like it, but I'm on the fence.

    The only thing I dislike a bit is how they did the hands, the rest seems OK to me.

    I agree, the arms are the only big negative. Otherwise I'm really looking forward to this guy. Gun-Face Mode will be how I display him!
