I got a distinct cyborg vibe from Lockdown, like he was an organic-mechanical hybrid rather than an actual Transformer (comparable to the Daleks from DR WHO, who are organic bodies encased in a mechanical body). His overall bot design resembles someone in a highly advanced spacesuit. In fact, his head resembles Iron Man's helmet with its pull-down visor. His transformation scheme utilises a blend of Transformium and moving parts (not to mention all the weaponry he forms from his body), which hints at his being a specially-created Transformer. He speaks as if he was a superior type of being, saying that Optimus was built and it was something inferior. He may have been implying that he himself was born and fashioned for a specific purpose. Does anyone think that Lockdown may have been a cyborg-like TF?
