    Autobot Lockdown. Let's just imagine he stayed on the good side, and eventually became a cop, using G1 Prowl's colors/markings.

    I removed all his spikes (roof, bumpers, shoulder, neck), his big exhaust pipes, and filled in his face tattoos. Filled in his hood where his engine was, and added a light at

    I've been wanting to do this version of Lockdown since he came out. Painted with krylon fusion for the white, testors acrylics for the rest, G1 labels, which ended up being too small for certain parts. May get the MP Prowl labels and replace them.

    Thanks for looking, let me know what you think.

    Neat! He looks like a no-nonsense type of Bot. He and Ultra Magnus would get along famously. Or not, seeing how Prowl and UM butt heads in the IDW comics. :D

    i like it. It brings credence to the Lockdown/Autobot idea. Didn't think that mold could look Autobot-y, but you've pulled it off.

    I can't imagine Lockdown as a good guy but this is neat paint job. Nice work.

    Love it! As Timesynch hit on, he does have a stern look about him.

    Nice job of "normalizing" him too with removing all the spikes, divets and side pipes...

    Beautiful work as always...looking forward to the "Bad Cop" side to this.

    Looks really good! Your paint work is always so clean and it's an intriguing post season 3 take on the character.
