—Lockdown to Harold Attinger.
Lockdown and his group of mercenaries have no allegiance to the Autobots or the Decepticons. This ruthless hunter only works for the highest payers in the galaxy. As long as the price is right, he'll hunt down anyone.
He is well equipped for these hunts too. Not only the giant cannon mode, his head has multiple other configurations, such as a monocular long range scanner. He also has a tactical face plate that gives him readings on his "prey". His arms also have various configurations, battle hook, sword, cannon, claw and spark catcher. Last but not least, he has grenades and shoulder-mounted missile launchers. His vehicle mode is a 2013 Lamborghini Aventador.
