Something I noticed about Lockdown's card.

    I dont think it is supposed to be a rubsign. although interesting interpretation. In the show, they two episodes where he shows up, it is a faction logo that is blacked out. I dont recall it revealing a decepticon logo. but someone mentioned that it looks like the shape of an autobot faction logo.

    Back when they first showed his design at Botcon of last year, they said he'd have a rub symbol because he's not really a true Decepticon. They just decided not to give him one for the final toy, I guess. I slapped one on him anyway, though. It's a little big for the space given, so that may be another reason why they decided not to give him a rub symbol as well.

    I bought a Reprolabels mini-rubsign to put on Lockdown. Fits perfectly. not sure if I should put a larger one on the decepticon symbol on the top of the car though. Perhaps just remove that symbol all together if possible. He didnt have a rubsign there.

    But the rubsign makes him so much cooler. Yesss...
