Remember Actionmasters? They were the figures at the dying days of G1 that couldn't transform, but had transforming accessories. Yeah, most people would like to forget them,too. Hasbro hasn't, though. They recently repainted Lockdown in the image of Axer, who is now known as Axor.
Unlike most masters of bladed weapons, Axor could care less about form. He is a whirlwind of destruction, caring only about seeing his enemies in pieces - as long as those pieces are still large enough to claim a bounty on. He especially looks forward to claiming the bounty on Autobot Ratchet - and taking the healer's weapon for himself.
Axor shares Lockdown's alt mode to a tee, besides the obvious color change. His main color scheme is a light gray, with red on the rear grass and behind the doors, as well as the fender vents. He has a dark blue on the roof spikes, as well as the wheel spikes. The bumper is a cream color.
Where Axor excels over Lockdown is in the details. The engine block is now pained with silver and cream, a vast improvement over the unpainted block Lockdown had. The red touches on the vents and rear windows also livens things up a bit.
Identical to Lockdown
Axor is almost a spitting image to this Actionmaster counterpart in robot mode. The color scheme is nearly identical and even the retooled head pays a close resemblance, other than the "horns" on his head.
The other retool on the figure is with the right arm, which employs a battle axe instead of Lockdown's hook (He's Axor, get it?). Beyond the head and hand retool, Lockdown and Axor are otherwise similar. This includes the few gripes that came with Lockdown, including the troubled kibble on the arms.
Hips and arms are still a sore point.
