Profile: Lockdown could care less about Megatron and his grand goals of universal domination. He's in the game for upgrades, pure and simple, and he wears the Decepticon badge because they're the ones who can get him the systems he wants. For the right price he'll hunt down any target and bring it in - functioning or not. As a bonus, every new target means new trophies for his workshop wall. He enjoys his work, and he's traveled from one end of the universe to the other doing it, which is why he's got a collection of weapons and functions second to none. Driven by the thrill of the chase, Lockdown is a bounty hunter by choice and a Decepticon only by necessity. Once he's accepted a contract, nothing short of total deactivation can stop him. His services don't come cheap, but he's the best there is at what he does.
Lockdown has a grisly habit of collecting "trophies" from his victims for his own use. He has attached a number of parts that appear to be stolen, such as his hook, chainsaw weapons, and parts of his left leg.
Abilities: Lockdown can reach a top speed of 250mph. Subject utilizes a supercharger that stores the kinetic energy from racing in his alternate form and uses it to boost his own speed for short bursts. This is his favorite device... because his favorite tactic is to catch up with targets and sink in his Capture Hook for the up-close-and-personal kill. He has also been known to use his cow-catcher to clear a path though obstructions to get to his target. Lockdown also possesses an EMP generator which, when fired, can knock out electronics, and, if one is close enough, another Transformer. The weapon is limited in that it takes time to generate enough energy to fire an effective pulse. While in his alternate mode Lockdown can deploy an oil slick and a smoke screen in order to elude his enemies. He replaced his right hand with a hook; he finds pleasure in using it to capture his prey.
Weaknesses: Lockdown’s EMP generator takes time to charge making him vulnerable while waiting for the device to fire. Although he is quite arrogant, Lockdown is by no means reckless; as most egotistical beings. Lockdown’s profession has procured him a decent number of enemies; however his reputation has kept them at bay, thus far.
