The modern Lock Legion has made it its goal to recieve equal recognition and respect to the group it is a ripoff of, the Clock Crew. They are considered by many to be clock posers, fake clocks trying to steal the limelight from the original Clock Crew.
Much like the Clock Crew, the standard animation style tend to be to animate an object as an avatar for a person, with a lock representing the facial elements, as opposed to the clockface of the clock crew, and to use "tickers" (a moving arrow or a line emanating from the character) to indicate which character is talking in the absense of a mouth. Often times computer generated voices take the place of voice acting in Lock Legion animations as well.
Some facts about the lock legion:
Some notable members of the Lock Legion either for their prominence in the group or for their animating ability are Banana Lock, Coffee Lock, Aubergine Lock, Peach Lock, Trash Lock, Dia Lock, and Cloud Lock (also known as Wonchop.)
The Lock Legion has proven to be quite efficient in the production of music video collaborations, and far more efficient than the Clock Crew in accrediting them to the Lock Legion newgrounds account.
Many Locks are responsible for the creation of various other similar spinoffs, groups that follow the same animation concept as the clock crew and the same principle as the Lock Legion. These spinoffs, like the lock legion, largely consist of newer members (noobs, newbs) that are frustrated by the difficulty of finding respect and recognition within the established hierarchy of the Clock Crew.
