    Robot design looks super generic, glad it wasn't used.

    By my god I wish they'd kept the poncho.

    Oh damn, I actually really dig this design. Keeping his alt mode as a muscle car would've been a nice homage, but I still like the final result as well. But man, what could've been.....

    Cape is kinda cliche. I am satisfied with the one that appeared on screen. He comes across as a hunter/solider assasin

    As cool as he was being a Lamborghini in the movie, I have to say, this altmode just seems a little more like Lockdown to me. But maybe that's just me.

    The poncho is the best thing about this concept design.

    I don't really like the rusted colour muscle car....the slick looking Lambo looked better.

    While it is a neat design, Lockdown's final design was a perfect fit for the movie universe, although I definitely would have loved seeing that muscle car on screen.

    Alt mode does seem more like Lockdown but a little glad they went with the Lambo really.

    Maybe you feel that way because of his animated incarnation. After watching him in the trailers and the movie, that Lambo was just right for me.

    The only thing I'm not sure of is did his robot mode have the matte black Lamborghini finish on it?

    And btw your avatar is :bay

    Capes make anything cooler.

    The old, rusty, partially replaced look is interesting if only because you just don't see that in Transformers. It's all CLEAN, NEW, SHINY, BUY NOW!
    Shattered Glass Knock Out, anybody?

    EDIT: derp, just remember "evasion" Optimus and DotM Megatron...

    Agreed.

    The alt mode would have been more traditional for the character, considering his Animated and IDW/RotF versions both use a Muscle Car.

    That said... I suppose a super-techy Assassin/Bounty-Hunter would probably benefit from an ultra-sleek sports car... so his eventual alt mode made some sense at least.

    But yea... that Poncho.... I want a poncho for my RotF Lockdown, now that I think of it...

    Channeling too much Starscream with those legs for my taste.


    Dig the cape, though.

    I wish his vehicle mode had an engine on top of his car mode like his Animated counterpart

    Neat throwback to his Animated and ROTF toy selves as far as car alt mode goes, but the bot mode is way too General Grievous for my tastes (I think the only robots in the TF universe who can pull off the cape look are G1 Starscream, G1/TFP Alpha Trion, DOTM Sentinel Prime, and DOTM Megatron). I'm glad they went with the final design they did for the AOE movie as I love the creepy cosmonaut assassin look they did go with.
