Wow, a tiny bit of paint makes A.o.E Galvatron looks much better.

So wait? Takara's going with blue Drift also? On the plus side Lockdown is looking far better when properly transformed

The paint differences are very slight between Takara and Hasbro this round. This makes me feel better about just going ahead and picking up Hound, Drift, and Galvatron (and Lockdown) when they show up in stores here. It's not worth it to pay double the price (or more) for a little more gold paint on Drift's collar or a random swipe of "rust" detailing on Hound's tummy. Crosshairs seems to be the only must have Takara deco, and even that's a bit marginal.

That color layout suits Grimlock well, but I wish Takara or Hasbro had used it on the Voyager mold instead.

Hound, Galvatron, & Drift look amazing!

Of course, I'll get the American versions in-hand first before deciding whether to actually pounce on these, but man... they sure are tempting.

Most of the changes are just on the heads of these figures. Galvatron still lack so much paint on his body but looks much better without that silly cross-eyed face. I dig Drift's new face color too.

Sweet Primus, a GOOD picture of deluxe Lockdown. Almost certainly carrying a face-gun, but I don't see room for a hook. Shame that.

After the latest bunch of TV spots, I'm starting to think less that it actually is a hook and more that it might be a crossbow-type weapon in the movie instead.

Good luck finding HFTD Battle Blades Bumblebee at a reasonable price. If you buy it from Ebay, prepare to pay a king's randsom.

Wow. I always said that I didnt like AoE Leader Grimlock. But for that Black Knight version, I'll make an exception! :x

Also, that Galvatron seem to have his bot mode painted, as expected from Takara. I'm just affraid of the pricetags. To import or not.......

Hopefully not. I know it's an adaptation of a character (from a series that liberally appropriates names for mismatched characters), but it would be nice to have SOME homages to the character you're referencing in the design. Right now, aside from the bounty hunter angle, nothing really says "Lockdown" to me.

Well, you could say the same for Galvatron, Crosshairs, Hound, even Drift.

Movie designs looking nothing like their namesakes isn't anything new. The Unicron Trilogy was rife with "in name only" character designs yet hardly anyone made a fuss over those.

Fair enough. I just think a little visual cue would add more to his visual personality, to help differentiate him from "black and steel robot #38".

Or maybe I'm just a sucker for mythology gags, idk.

See those 2 pegs in that space in Lockdown's gun?

Just sayin'.

Is this the first good look we've gotten of Lockdown? He looks pretty badass but I wish there was more of the car visible in bot mode. I like how Crosshairs and Drift clearly look like "car robots" in bot mode.

It to me looks like the gun can clip onto the head of lockdown. If not i will still buy him.
