    Bummer, really. I'd love to see a much larger version of him.

    Lockdown must NEVER have a voyager toy. However he must have a deluxe that expands to Voyager height in robot mode. Such is the tradition of Lockdown.

    Why not a Voyager that compresses down to a deluxe scale car?

    When i get a voyager i expect a large vehicle/beast and i fairly large robot. Lockdown however i will never want to be a voyager. I agree with the large height as a deluxe and then compressing into a small car.

    Because it'd be cheaper for us consumers to have a deluxe that expands up to a voyager scale robot?

    Agreed.

    Size honestly doesn't factor a ton for me so much as having a well-proportioned robot mode.

    Yeah, but as a Voyager he'd have a more complex transformation and better engineering

    Lockdown was actually shorter than prime if you look closely at the fight scenes.

    But still, Prime was huge in the film and Lockdown was a large enough size that he could face Prime head on without having to really completely on agility.

    He wasn't large at all, however he was a skilled fighter. Lockdown had his ass handed to him in every fight with Prime up until Prime took his attention away to help Cade.

    That's what I was thinking! Then they would have more budget for gimmicks! Especially since compressing it would require less plastic than expanding it.

    You mean those guys from six and four years ago respectively?

    I've said something similar about Cyberton Metroplex being close to supreme size but people always say they want a cheaper figure

    I feel like the voyager Galvatron mold could be retooled to make a voyager Lockdown--their proportions aren't terribly different in robot mode. Though a Lamborghini Aventador and truck are two completely different vehicles..

    And perhaps he'd be closer scale to Human Alliance toys!
