Derrick J. Wyatt, Art Director/Lead Character Designer for Transformers Animated has updated his blog and given us a peek at the creative process behind Lockdown's design. Derrick says that hid original concept for Lockdown was "more of a lumbering Frankenstein monster type, made up of stolen parts looted from other Cybertronians" Check out his blog see for yourself.

What's ulgy? :) hahaha

Yeah, I do like the Lockdown final version better, tho the big Decepticon symbol w/ an "X" cut through it was pretty sweet.

Yup. The final version is better. Although he looks sorta like a veteran comando. I'm amazed the name Lockdown was never used before.

Here's what I want to know. To all the wankers out there who're constantly giving us crap like, "gee, I can't believe you're posting this! I heard this a day and a half ago on __some-other_website__!!!" Do you give the same amount of crap to those same other sites when we happen to post something a day or so before anyone else? (Incidentally, I don't recommend that you do. I'm just curious.)

Nice goin' J. :P

Woah. That's harsh. I only go to other than this. I'm actually glad you guys post these things at all. I wish I could share all this amazing news. *salutes perceptor*

The lockdown final design is way better than his concept.
