Uhhh...yeah.....no. Movie decals don't look good on a Prime fig.

Also, looks nothing like Barricade from the Prime universe.

Come on FunPub, you're slacking.

And you know there's no way the production version will have that purple color. I don't think Hasbro is even capable of producing that shade of purple.

And here I thought megaplex was just a fluke in regards to the club using recently released figures.

Also any one notice the smirk, I don't think the original head sculpt head that. Heres hoping thats just the mock up :lol:

While he is cool, it isn't close enough to his official character model to justify the cost. He'd be bought if this were retail. But a TSS figure? No way. It's a shame as I'm usually a sucker for this stuff, but next years figures aren't looking good.

Yesh, Prowl has barely been released and he already has a planned redeco.

And guys, give the fiction and his backstory the benefit of the doubt. We don't know if he actually is Prime Barricade, or another Barricade that has a Prime-styled body. And how many of you have re-purposed Slipstream as G1, despite her possibly not hailing from that continuity? ;)

Also, some features of the model do match up: the legs, the hips and the chest. The rest, not so much.

They phoned in another overpriced repaint - oh joy.

Slap a familiar name on an already overused mold and charge triple retail. These sub figures are an insult.

Probably because they can't just throw a new head and a light bar on top of the Vehcion mold. >:oP

Honestly, I absolutely adore this guy.

Well they did that as an Auto Assembly figure this year using PRID Vehicon to form a Barricade.

Look good too.

Well When they reveal Rewind you may be a bit happier.

Pay attention kids! This is how you efficiently and effectively neuter an otherwise totally bad-ass Decepticon character. #-o

On a side note...
Can I get a Mod to delete that first post so I don't have a "Double"? I'm getting "general error" messages like mad on here and it won't let me delete the first post. Thanks.

Where did you hear Rewind? If it's Chromedome, Rewind being a possible partner was just a silly thought based on nothing. >:oP

I could definitely see them doing that though from the Reveal the Shield "Demolition" Rumble mold. But that's just me.

Am I seriously the only person on Seibertron that actually loves the crap out of this Barricade?

I dont need this at all. Honestly, if I had any intention of bringing Barricade as a character on my classics shelf, I would just go with the movie toy. I think some of the Prime and Animated molds have potential for classics, but not with those cartoony big jawed heads. I dont see why they cant just put serious looking classics styled heads on the bodies of those molds ?

Man he looks awesome
Happy they didn't give him that screwed up head like in Universe
Unfortunately I have other figures that need my wallet, so he's gonna have to be on the wait list


Now doesn't that look bad?
