A couple of months ago a member dropped by our forums with a supposed leaked image of Lockdown's face from the upcoming Transformers: Age of Extinction film. At the time we had little to go in terms of verifying it's authenticity, but after the licensed product reveals that came out the UK Toy Fair we feel its safe to say this is indeed Lockdown! At this point we can confirm that the gray Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is Lockdown, and comparing the leaked image below to the Lockdown Mashem from the show, this does appear to be his face. As you can see he has a very humanoid face, maybe a little Destro-ish. Our staff member on the scene at the UK Toy Fair, Va'al, also managed to catch a full body glimpse of Lockdown on a mini ad for the Transformers Sparbag. Check him out below.

Wait, are those the minifigure blind packs? They look horribly painted compared to this:

Anyway, yeah, Lockdown looks badass. Very Destro-esque. This will piss off some Animated fans.

GOOD

Now THAT is a TF face I can get behind. Unlike Hound, with his...trappers...trappings.

Looks like a step down from how awesome the rotf toy head looked like.

I don't know, what I should think on the next movie though. When I see all the newest pictures, my first idea is that the movie will totally suck visually... Because Optimus Prime doesn't really looks great, Drift looks like sh.. and Lockdown isn't that great, too...And Bumblebee, well it's Bumblebee...

so lockdown had a kick ass looking figure in ROTF but instead of using that as a basis they go with this crap, i have the feeling that this is just hasbro slapping the name on a bot to keep the copy right.

Yeah, also my feeling. But the hole movie is too much eastern orientated, I mean Optimus Prime and Drift looks like Samurais, well I haven't a problem with Samurais movies, but to combine this with Transformers will suck, the best example is Transformers Go in my eyes...

Well I know one who don't collect the Transformers Age of Extiction toys. :-?

Optimus is more based on a medieval knight than a samurai, which would be more western than eastern.

And, there have been tons of samurai Transformers in the past.

That's true, but they looks much better than AOE Drift for exemple...

I look forward to samurai bot prowl was samurai in animated, would have prefer ninja oh well bumblebee everyone feel same way about bumblebee from legend to leader class with bee IF Hasbro could just dumb it down with bees there wouldn't be much hate for him on trans sites out there,.

who ever said it he does close resemble to destro like to see whole face in color be better judge of this character

Yeah, I wasn't a really big fan of Animated Samurai Prowl either, but he looked better than AOE Drift. Yeah, AOE Lockdown looks really a little bit like Destro, and his smile remembers also a little bit of the Joker. :-?

So am I the only one that thinks Lockdown looks like a mechanical Martin Luther King? Or am I just weird? :-s

Normally, I'd disown this guy as Lockdown, but 1) I'm too lazy to do so today, 2) I'm to the point where I sigh and think, "This is exactly what I should expect from Michael Bay", and 3) I actually kinda dig this look. Sure, I would've like to at least seen a splash of green on him just to have a small homage to his Animated roots, but the complete badassery that his car mode completely overrules every argument I can give.

Admittedly, Age of Extinction is beginning to have me interested (with the exception of that Leader/First Edition Optimus Prime). If the toys don't suck like Dark of the Moon's did, I may get back into getting movie toys.

And now the reverse is in effect, with folks complaining that it's not like the faces in the first three films.

When I first saw the picture of that Lockdown toy, I said to myself, "Holy damn, that dude who was on here months ago was right," and I kind of believed him, too. With that said, I liked the insect faces on the TFs. But, whatever. Change is fine.

Waita generalize. Rotf Lockdown didnt have anything near an insect face. He actually had quite the opposite compared to bonecrusher or starscream. You guys need to stop attacking your fellow fans just for having opinions.

It's not hideous, there has been far worse. This has definitely got its cool factor, it also somewhat looks like a T-800. It's just that when it looked so much more wicked and badass in the ROTF toy form and the CGI packaging, this just feels meh in comparison.

Actually, I've always liked the trilogy faces even since the first movie. The Autobots were kind of humanoid, but distinctive enough to be alien/mechanical, and it was perfect.

Now I'm not against change, as long as it's explained. Perhaps these new TF's with the "smoother" humanoid faces are a sub-species of Cybertronian--like how elves and dwarves are similar but different than humans. Just a spoken line or two to let the viewer in on why the new guys look so different, like how Lennox explains to Meering about the matrix and TF's using energon as sustenance during Sentinel's "revival" scene.

It's probably not an issue for most of the fans, but I have a personal peeve against "fanon", and like to have things officially stated in a movie.

I'm not really fond of his head design since it looks generic. I can't help but compare it to Darkseid and the Terminator and Destro and Bane and Doctor Doom and a million other bald bad guys. Lockdown's not standing out, and that's not good. Evidently turning into yet another grey/silver super sports car certainly doesn't help matters.
Hopefully the rest of his robot mode leaves a better impression, because right now he's not leaving any.

Aren't a bunch of the original TF heads based off of samurai helmets?

Among other things. Bumblebee's head looks like it was inspired by a generic Viking helmet with the horn and all.

Image

Image


Mirage's looks rather similar to that of a Pharaoh's crown/head-gear/crest thing.

Image

Image

Streak/Prowl's and Ironhide/Ratchet's helmets, with the crescent moon-like headpiece on the forehead, probably look the closest to a samurai helmet.

If the head is going to be symmetrical, this is a full head version, joining the halves together....

Wait wait wait!

A robot with a human face it's different form a robot with a face that has some human featuring. The Lockdown ROTF toy looked as a robot, both in the head and in the body; these AOE toy line is completely different.

How to say... While the previous toy lines where anthro shaped robots (I mean the had head, arms, legs, feet, hands...) these toy line is about humans wearing robot clothes (I'm italian, I hope I've given the idea :oops: ).

Lockdown was one of my favourite TF, and the Lamborghini was the coolest cool alt mode, but these robot is UGLY, like Optimus, Drift and Grimlock.

The more I see this toy line, the more I'm sure I'll not buy a single toy. And going on like this, I'm starting to hate even the movie.

I've just always found their faces to be too busy, complicated for the sake of being complicated. If they are changing the faces to be smother I'm all for it, I think it will help define the individual bots more.

Grazie Va'al! M'hai lanciato un salvagente in terra straniera! :D

In ogni caso, per stare nel merito, credo che la toy line di AOE si preannunci come una delle peggiori, quanto a design... oops, non facciamo i maleducati: ora scrivo in inglese...

Thnk You Va'al: You've given me a lifesaver in a land far from my home! :D

About the matter: my idea stays the same, I dont' like this toy line. I hope the other characters will have a better layout, but it's clear that the general imprinting is "China styled warriors" :-(

But... But... the car mode is too clean! Lockdown needs spiky things NEEDS them! :-( :P

Like the face sculpt, it "is" a bit too clean and mask-like for Lockdown's three toy, and two media incarnations, but its not a bad looking lockdown. If this were the first Locky we were getting after his animated self, I don't think there'd be much outcry specific to him. And I suspect the person who actually owns that Lambo would be vehemently against letting Bay cover it in driving spikes, so oh well.

Hope the fgigure is good, I like my ROTF Lockdown, but he falls apart alot and is rather alien looking compared to a lot of my other tfs. Crossing fingers that he's a half-decent mercenary/bounty huter figure with a nice bot mode.

And a good movie. Hoping for one of those too.
