You bubble-headed booby!on June 28, 2011 at 6:06 pm
I’ve got a few hours before we gotta head over to the theatre, so I’ve got a little time to crank out more photos and words about the BotCon exclusives I haven’t given specific attention to yet. I’m in the middle of packing away toys for our move in a few weeks anyway, and I can’t box away some of my Animated stuff until I get them photographed with their BotCon redecoes and/or retools! I can’t help it. It’s my compulsion.
So here’s Lockdown and his BotCon counterpart, the Stunticon Wildrider. For being a dark gray redeco of a black toy, they look pretty different, which is nothing short of amazing. (Note: My Lockdown is a little custom-painted.) The silver and burgundy definitely distinguish him, and the most recognizable part of of Lockdown, his lantern-shaped head, is replaced by a new one. Wildrider has a pointier jaw with jagged teeth and a little helmet.
Another nice thing about Wildrider is that he’s the “Blazing Lockdown” mold, which means he comes with the chainsaw instead of the hook. I never got the chainsaw version, so that’s an extra bonus for me.
Despite Wildrider’s feral appearance, he actually sounds like Dr. Smith from Lost in Space.
