Hasbro Transformers Animated Lockdown Action FigureWhile the animated TV show did a lot to give the first 25 years of fandom a big hug, we got some new additions like Lockdown which made a huge impact on the franchise. The character would go on to appear in a movie toy line, and then the IDW comic books, and the rumor-that's-not-a-rumor is his appearance in Age of Extinction. Quite a big deal for a character that didn't exist before 2008!

On the cartoon he was more of a for-hire antagonist, but the toy line needed to make him a Decepticon. The faction symbol is on his chest, while the cartoon sported an amazingly clever rubsign sticker which really adds to the mystery of the character's intentions. In robot mode, the character unfolds into a huge robot - taller than most Voyagers! - which makes it one of the most impressive Deluxe transformers to ever exist. The Frankenstein's Monster-like appearance features bits and pieces of other robots scavenged over the centuries, which also lightly invokes Boba Fett's mismatched armor. On the TV show he was all about getting upgrades - and this figure can actually swap parts with Animated Ratchet - it doesn't do Lockdown too much good, but the engine EMP generator can plug in to Ratchet's wrist. There's also a hook weapon which mounts to Lockdown's forearm, and also fits in the center of the car while in vehicle mode.

Transforming is relatively easy, but parts will likely pop off. Be careful, you may have to replace a leg as things go and you rotate out the arms or legs from the nifty, skinny car.

Hasbro Transformers Animated Lockdown Action FigureThe car, like most cars, doesn't do much. You can flip out a hook in the front bumper, and activate the little spring-loaded engine EMP gizmo on the hood. The wheels roll... and that's about it. It does more than most deluxe car Transformers toys, which is to say, not much. Generally speaking, the best you can hope for is rolling wheels or a weapon which can plug on to the toy, and this has both of those. At least it's not just a brick - plus it looks really cool. The black body comes to life with silver and green paint, and red windows look superb. The spikes on the roof and wheels make sure this doesn't look like anything else you can buy... except maybe another Lockdown toy.

There are three different Lockdown toys based on this mold, another Movie/G1 comic toy from Revenge of the Fallen, some simplified toys, a Bot Shots toy, and a few others. It's a wonderful design and while I'm fond of the Revenge of the Fallen version, I would say that this one has aged much more nicely. It's gorgeous, and can probably be had for $5-$20 - depending on the week. If you don't have any Animated toys, go ahead and get this one - even if you never transform it again, it looks beautiful in either mode.
