    I personally thought he was the best main villain in the movie series, especially as far as characterization goes.

    I want to know what you guys think personally about Lockdown compared to the other villains.

    Honestly, Galvatron was the villain I was looking forward to... But lockdown stole the show for me! Loved him!

    I chose the first option. Lockdown was excellent, and a great villain for a movie series that lacks them.

    He was easily the best.

    I was actually hoping he'd make it out of this, just so we'd get more of him.

    As a villain he got what he deserved at the end. But he should have escaped somehow just so he's there ready for another film. Its seems every character Mark Ryan gets is always killed!

    Best villain....

    Lockdown was the greatest main villian in the movie-verse. Coldly killed Ratchet by ripping out his spark. He put a hurting on Optimus and captured him along with the "legendary warriors" and all their artifacts. Best motto: "I don't care". Didn't run away like Starscream or Megatron when the battle got out of hand. A bounty hunter traversing the cosmos hunting and capturing trophies.

    Better than what Megatron was, and probably better than what Galvatron will be if he returns.

    I think Lockdown and Sentinel Prime were both excellent villains.
    Sentinel Prime remains my choice for the best but Lockdown is right behind him.

    Sentinel was the only other capable villian but turning your back to Megatron is never a good idea.

    Lockdown easily takes this.

    Yes. Ruthless, badass and giver of zero shits. He killed a lot of Autobots and was one oft he major driving forces of the film.

    so yeah.

    First & only baddy thus far in the movie series that provided a legitimate threat factor AND was actually efficient.

    I voted good, but not the best.
    To me, he's as great as Sentinel Prime was, but on a different level.

    He was great, and a worthy successor to the throne of big bad left by Sentinel and Megatron. The fact it was an Animated original made it even better.

    I think he is definitely the best villain. He had a presence like no other. Megatron was also very well done. The Fallen should have had a more menacing presence. Shockwave should also have had more of a presence and a bigger role in Dark of the Moon.
