    I don't know what to tittle it so... Yeah.

    Lockdown is supposed to be small enough to become a lamborghini so why does he look so large next to Optimus and he seems super strong too.
    There is already a thread about his strength but it doesn't explain size, and this has been bothering me since i first saw the Optimus versus Lockdown scene in the trailers.

    Anyone?

    I don't know why people are concerned about size! Bruce Lee could have murdered Dwayne Johnson!!

    The smallest, most trained and experienced ninja in the world could take out a WWE champion. No?

    Yeah, but this is Murder Prime. He IS Bruce Lee. If he looked like Dwayne Johnson. And was REALLY pissed off.

    A Lamborghini Aventador is NOT small.

    Metric LxWxH : 4,780 x 2,265 x 1,136 meters.

    So, if Lockdown's legs stretch out fully in car mode, his robot mode
    will almost be twice the length of the car mode.

    2 x 4,78m = 9,56m ~ 31 ft

    Let's say he compacts a little for added strength.... say 27 ft for example.
    Yes, Lockdown can easily pose a physical threat.

    Even in the Tokyo Toy Show pics... I think we can see the Lockdown
    deluxe toy robot is about inbetween deluxe Hound and voyager Galvatron.

    People just like to call it small because of its height but yeah a lot of supercars like that are actually bigger than most would imagine

    They are like 7 feet wide. A lot wider than regular cars. Some of that extra width rearranges into height.

    We haven't seen Prime and Lockdown 'toe to toe' so actual height is tough to gauge. But I suspect he will be a bit smaller and of less bulk.

    One thing to consider, if the transformations are still reasonable scale accurate, is that Prime's truck mode has a lot more empty space in it than the Lamborghini which is built with less passenger space, engine space etc.

    Still if they end up being very similar there could be some cheating going on.

    Prime may also have shrunk in size as well, seeing the assumed "last scene" where the five autobots are standing together. Bumblebee looks almost reaching Prime's chest.

    And now that I think about it drift should be just as big as lockdown if we're going by the size of the car

    I'm not sayin Lockdown is particularly small its just that he is a supercar while Optimus is a truck and they are about the same height, that seems weird.

    I doubt anyone understands that logic right now until the movie is actually out.
    Personally it bugs me a bit that a Lambo is shown superior over a big rig. :wtf: 

    It reminds me of BB taking out Rampage, but I still don't know what Lockdown is capable of doing.

    Don't forget that Lockdown appears to be incredibly ancient himself...and is likely extremely powerful because he's spent eons stealing upgrades, training, etc.

    He certainly comes off as far more menacing than any of the previous cons.

    Because as we all know from Transformers history, your alt mode absolutley reflects your combat prowess.

    Not to mention that the two most memorable Decepticons were a handgun and a tape deck, and were more powerful than Autobots with car, trucks, and freaking tank alt modes.

    Judging by the latest TV spot, it appears that Bee and Lockdown are roughly the same height.

    Also in the new TV spot Bee is about 2/3rds the height of Prime.

    Just rough deductions.
