The "it sucks because it should have been G1" argument lost steam by the second movie when it officially became a franchise and doubly so by the fourth movie when characters became even more solidly designed killing the "Bionicle" argument.

Hck, that argument lost steam with Beast Wars! It's ridiculous to say the least. Not real Transformers my sine function!
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

No more disappointing than any other supposed Masterpiece figure (the number of G1 MP figures without at least several flaws is a very tiny one or perhaps no number at all) and they are both amazing display pieces. I dunno if it's just cos I will ALWAYS take the more complex beautifully detailed movie designs over simplified G1 cartoon but this thing is just so damn gorgeous. Probably best damn thing Hastak have sculpted all year. This is why I'm into Transformers, not that horrendously blocky stuff like (TR Sixshot and Overlord come to mind, god i hate those things)
Ok no more. I'm sold. Now I just gotta wait for the release. So I will avoid any further pics best I can. I next want to see it on my shelf. :)
peace out. :D


I find the longer I'm in this hobby the less I enjoy the movie designs. To me, they're not "beautifully detailed" they're jumbled eye sores with barely any defining features. Say what you will about the G1 designs but at least they're clean and memorable. I feel that the bayformer designs try way too hard to be "edgy and cool" and often miss the mark on both.


It's kind of like, it's hard to really tell so many of them apart when you get right down to it. At least for me it is. They just look messy.

10 years later, my first Transformers was a Bay figure and I still like the designs. There are some messy ones, but there are plenty of good ones too that I really enjoy.

This guy, he will be one of them. He nailed the look. The figure is amazing, the weapon is amazing, and this is a perfect Barricade. I'm hoping they keep doing the movie MP's. I would like to at least have the original 5 Autobots and Sideswipe done in MP form.

HD Images of Transformers Movie Masterpiece MPM-5 Barricade

Motto: "Till All Are Pun!"
While we did post some in-hand images of the Hasbro - Takara Tomy collaboration on Transformers Movie Masterpiece MPM-5 Barricade, back here, the recent private press event during the Hong Kong Toys and Games Fair 2018 which announced its successor MPM-6 Ironhide, also had previous figure Bumblebee and the Decepticon police car on display, as comparison and showcase.

Thanks to Hobbymizer administrator Stanley Cheung, who contacted us directly, we have some nice, clean, high-definition shots of the ladiesman217 seeker - which you can check out below! The shots include the figure in robot and vehicle mode, plus comparisons with a previous version of the figure and the Bumblebee Movie Masterpiece toy, as well as some close-ups of the spinning blade wheel weapon.

The more and more I see Masterpiece Barricade :CON:, the more and more I fall in love.
Yes in a perfect world he would have rubber tires and come with a Frenzy :CON:, but this is not a perfect world........cause if it were the G1 purist would finally get it into their heads that Bay :michaelbay: did not "ruin" anything, and they would realize why a movie studio wouldn't want to recycle designs and concepts from 30+ years ago. :BANG_HEAD:
