In some media, he is depicted as the same character as another Lockdown.
History[edit | edit source]
Titan Comics[edit | edit source]
Lockdown was originally a Decepticon, who had a sideline as bounty hunter and hired killer. As mentioned in Locked In, Lockdown claimed the bounty on the Coseem crime gang's boss.
Five years before the Battle of Chicago, Lockdown was part of a three man team consisting of himself, Drift, and Knucklehead, trying to capture an Autobot fortress. Drift and Knucklehead wanted in claim it with minimal bloodshed, but Lockdown preferred a more destructive solution. After they sneaked in, Lockdown disobeyed orders, and killed the prisoners anyway. Drift stopped him, giving a gleeful Lockdown the chance to claim the guy was a traitor and kill him off. Knucklehead and Drift sent him down into a molten moat, swearing revenge on them both. However, he couldn't actually kill them while Megatron was still in charge.
Age of Extinction[edit | edit source]
Lockdown is first seen hiding underwater watching the humans attack Ratchet. He then shoots Ratchet in the chest. He offers to let Ratchet survive if he tells where Optimus Prime is. Ratchet didn't tell him, and Lockdown finishes him by ripping out his spark, killing him instantly. He is later seen attacking Optimus as he tries to escape the military. He is seen again when he attacks Optimus while he was fighting Galvatron. Lockdown captures Optimus. While he was aboard, Optimus ended up escaping without Lockdown knowing. He goes down to Hong Kong and battles with Optimus. During the fight, he impales Optimus with his own sword, and just as he is about to finish him, Bumblebee and Cade battle Lockdown as Tessa and Shane pull the sword out of Optimus by pulling it out with the help of a pickup truck. During this, Lockdown then takes down Bumblebee, and was going after Cade, but before he could kill him, Optimus stabs him on the back and whacked him through the head when he didn't see it, and he was killed.
