    Would someone be so kind as to oblige me with a pic of Jaegertron next to both Carnifex and Hexatron?

    Much appreciated!

    I want to like this guy. I really do. There's just been something that's been throwing me off of it, and I just figured it out; the head. More specifically, the decorated beard on his chin, with the spikes coming out. It just does nothing for me, and really looks goofy in my eyes. If he had a different head that was a bit more clean, I would definitely get this guy.

    That's super weird cause I could nitpick a lot of things about the design yet the head is the thing I think MMC absolutely nailed 100% perfect. Fantastic sculpt it is and I love the big spikey chin. It was a design element established with the rotf figure and then further carried in to the comics because it made him more distinct.

    Imo spikey chin is vital to his design these days, absolutely crucial for Lockdown looking like Lockdown.

    MMC's head looks nothing like that comic other than the chin.

    Not technically true, but I didn't make a statement about it being strictly accurate either. Merely that the design suits the character very well. Black outer head, green on cranium, grey face, red eyes, big chin and some spikes. All you really need for a good lockdown head design. And MMC's is great. It's the rest of the figure that's a bit iffy as far as representing lockdown goes. Wish they'd been able to allocate his mass better and maybe had his wings on his legs or arms instead.

    So far my main disappointment is that the hook hand has to be removed for transformation

    Huh, in the artwork you posted, the chin spikes look alright. The figure seems to just have chin spikes that are too big for its head? Or they seem to try to put the chin into the face rather than be directly under it? I don't know, even comparing the head to the artwork, it doesn't seem right, or maybe it's just me.

    That feature facilitates multiple other hand attachments of different shapes though and that's one of the coolest things about the figure.

    Certainly. In general I would have much much preferred a slavish idw design but eh that was never what cassy intended for the mold at all so I don't ding it for that.

    True and I do appreciate that about it which is why it's only a mild disappointment, other than that I honestly love this guy, and the trophy case is a nice touch, I added the super ginrai helmet to it after getting the pc-15 upgrade for super ginrai :p

    I would definitely love to have a figure fully based on the IDW art. Until then, this figure is an alright stand-in until a Lockdown like that comes out.

    I'd like to ask, what are the (non-preferential) issues with this figure?

    I'd say the way the wings fold for transformation is not the nicest thing.
    And shoulder articulation is a bit limited.

    Would be nice if MMC would do those Deluxe Insecticon designs.

    I see, thanks! It's the Predacon heads and weapons that drew me to this one. But perhaps I'll opt for a ROTF Lockdown instead.

    The heads can be purchased separately.
