    Sure looks like it, taking on the movie toy's style too.

    So it looks like Skywatch and the Autobots are outted to the public in #12. I wonder who the betrayer will be.

    And if that's Lockdown on the cover of Drift, then color me very interested in this new mini!

  3. Acteon's Avatar Acteon says

    I wish they'd update the digital stores for those of us who have trouble getting the comics...

  4. King Henrik's Avatar King Henrik says

    the most interesting thing of that entire solicitation was that cliffjumper gets named dropped over everyone else in the prime description...

  5. Thundershot's Avatar Thundershot says


    Lockdown in G1!

    It's my fault. I put Movie Lockdown on my Classics shelf with Bludgeon months ago.

    Odd that Cliffjumper is getting top billing and not Bumblebee for TFP...

  6. Fit For natalie's Avatar Fit For natalie says

    Be funny if it turns out that Lockdown murdered Drift's sensei, too.

  7. There are more replies on The 2005 Boards.
