    So, I am watching Animated again, and I think I have a theory about Lockdown's hook/ Right arm. What are the chances he took down Grapple and that was his trophy?

    It seems pretty clear Ratchet is the reason he lost his right arm and had to replace it with a hook. Where that hook came from, who can say.

    You could ask Derrick J Wyatt for his thoughts, I guess.

    Not so great. We don't know if Grapple is in the animated world first of all. And second....look at that freaking hook. Does that look like a heavy duty construction hook?

    Maybe Lockdown snuck over to BayFormers and killed (like, with a spoon or something) Optimus and nicked one of his hooks.

    Could be his own signature weapon. A sword would slice his prey up, but a hook would snag them & keep them from running.

    I'd say that he just got a random hook arm, probably from his collection, maybe on commission from a replacement parts unit or something, after Ratchet destroyed the original appendage.

    Which is kind of hardcore actually, Ratchet straight-up ripped someone else's appendage apart so hard they couldn't rebuild it.

    It is a yellow arm with a hook. As far as it being a "heavy duty construction type hook" nothing in the cartoon looks heavy duty. Just a theory.

    Realy more of a homage to his Death's Head roots i think.

    Although if memory serves (and somebody please do correct me if it doesn't), Death's Head never had a hook hand. He had a mace club, a gun and a missile that could lock into his wrist, but not a hook (although I've not read the DH comics of recent years so maybe he now does). I suppose you could maybe count Death's Head 2 since his arm turned into a lot of things and one was probably a hook since he liked spikey things, but then you're getting too far away from the Death's Head version Lockdown is somewhat based on.

    Unless you just mean it's a DH homage because he has a weapon hand rather than a hand hand.

    Animated has almost all of the G1 characters so it can be assumed he in it as well. The hook ain't that big. It could fit into his hand
