Custom G1 Movie Masterpiece Barricade

Motto: "There are no victims, only volunteers."
I did this project for myself around May 2014 along with my G1 MP Lockdown. I would have posted this guy earlier as well but I moving around that time.

Anyways, this project was inspired by Guido Guidi's artwork referenced. I added my own spin on things by making Barricade's hands and upper arms a more subtle metalic purple, adding Mustang style rear lights and translating the light pink parts in the reference photo to silver.

One thing that was upsetting with this piece were the rear side windows. For some reason there was a bad reaction with the paint I used there and windows crackled... =/ Outside of that, I'm very happy with the piece. It has been sitting proudly in my personal collection for several months now.

With that said, I have to put this guy for auction to gather funds for future projects. Christmas is also around the corner, so I hope it makes someone very happy =)

More photos & info can be found on my site which is linked in my signature as well.

Enjoy! :D

I would have left the "to punish and enslave" portion off of the Police sticker (for a couple of different reasons) but other than that, that is one seriously sweet custom job you have there. I had never really thought about Movie Barricade having a G1 incarnation but you have pulled off the idea beautifully.
I'm a cigar chomping, Energon guzzling, crotchety old bot that's tough as nails, two days older than dirt, can out grouch Ironhide, out-complain Huffer, leave Bluestreak speechless with a single glare and make Grimlock back down in a stare-off. If you're nice, and extremely lucky, I may only tell you to go blow it out your exhaust pipe!

I... never thought about using smokescreen as the base for barricade. I've never seen that pic from guido before either. I like this.

I don't mind the idea, and I think the execution is great, but I would seriously like to to see this with a decepticon head. The current one is so intrinsically "autobot" that it makes it impossible for me to see this figure as a decepticon.
