    If by some chance/opportunity that some of the Decepticons were still around and could ally themselves with Lockdown, how well do you think it would go over? Pretty sure Megs is a no go. How about Starscream? Think he would be subservient to Lockdown? Would Soundwave be content running intel for the bounty hunter? Do you feel Lockdown had a commanding enough presence to direct some of the lesser 'cons (i.e. Barricade, Bonecrusher, Constructicons, etc.)? I know all those guys died in the previous go rounds and this is just for kicks! Btw, went back a few days and didn't see sumpn like this so please forgive if already addressed.

    You fail to address the fact that he wouldn't want to lead the Decepticons. As far as we could tell he hated them just as much as the Autobots.

    Lockdown wouldn't even bother with the Decepticons. He was there for one thing. He didn't want/need an army.

    He even say that the war of Autobots and Decepticons is stupid and he has to clean it up all the time.

    Yeah, like pretty much everyone else said, Lockdown considered himself above the civil war and would have had no use for an army.

    Lockdown is not interested in an army. He thinks the Autobots and Decepticons are below him. He believes he is more "civil" by rejecting the war. He has his posse but he's not out to start a fight. He just finds people and gets paid for it. He doesn't have any beef with anyone else.

    Most probably his now dead corpse would be repurposed & reprogrammed by Galvatron to be one of his underlings. How ironic!

    (That if the creators of the TF movie wants to bring him back in the future)

    Lockdown wasn't that evil in the first place.

    I mean, Yeah he was.... But not Megaton evil.

    Lockdown is already the de facto leader of a small army of 3rd party Transformers, all the factionless mercenaries and bounty hunters on his ship with him, united under the "Creator's" employment.

    As Jetfire said being a Bot or a Con is choice. Lockdown chose neither.

    Why would he work for a bunch that wants to destroy the universe and leaves no prisoners?

    Lockdown likes his trophies alive and isn't into genocide. Unlike Soundwave who like dead trophies.

    Nor does Lockdown like to be touchy and feelly about other races like the Autobots. Hence this mixing of races is disgusting to him and approves of the Creators stance on it.

    Hell Brains just plain left as he does not want to be involved anymore. He almost sacrificed his life and look at thanks he gets.

    It was just Lockdown and his mercs. They didn't give a fuck about anyone.

    One thing I actually loved about Lockdown was his and Savoy's meeting on his ship, and just how Lockdown did not want to hurt the humans at all. It was fascinating.

    Lockdown has a saying for that. "I don't care."

    So what do you guys think happened to Lockdown's men now that they're leaderless?
