    Deluxe Lockdown
    Voyager Galvatron

    You're not really spoiled for choice with the bad guys.

    What choice do you have? The 1-Step Lockdown?

    I tried it, by the way, and it is a chunk of $#&%.

    I decided to pick it up because the 1-step Drift wasn't too bad. Sad to say, but it looks only marginally worse than the Deluxe Drift.

    Lockdown is another story, though. The 1-step has a spring action that likes to pop open on its own for no reason. It really is a cheap piece of garbage. Maybe the Flip-and-Change Lockdown is a little better.

    But really, your only option is the Deluxe. And with Galvatron, they don't even have the lame alternatives. It's voyager or nothing.

    There's really only one choice for each of them.

    I'm fairly certain galvatron will get more toys in the next movie. But for now the Hasbro voyager is fine. Deluxe Hasbro lockdown looks cool to me. I'll leave the cannon on his head.

    Other than that. You have construct bots, and kreo that are alright. I like the one step changers that are like drift or the dinobots. But most of the sportscar ones are underwhelming. Probably because they were the style they conceptualized first.

    The G1 Grimlock kreo set gives you galvatron and lockdown without having to buy their big playsets.

    Human Alliance kind of felt justified this time. Considering the human supervillains in Harold Attinger and James Savoy of Cemetary Wind.

    Include at least Attinger with lockdown.

    To put it lightly I wanted Optimus Prime to punch them with boxing gloves made of drills. Would be nice to have a toy for that reason.
