There might be new pictures (AmiAmi has bigger pics, but HLJ has a few more), I can't be bothered to compare them right now. Takara Tomy's MPMs tend to be slightly different from Hasbro's right?

Emerje

Very slight. But this new one seems to be the exact same.

Yes, but I've found with the recent film MPs, they're hasn't been many significant differences, except for the price perhaps?

At least it isn't a Beast Wars logo. I'm guessing there's supposed to be one of those fancy authentication stickers on there that you see on some officially license stuff, or maybe just a regular ford logo sticker. You said you got it off eBay, right? From a Chinese seller I'm guessing? Maybe it was rushed out so fast that they didn't get the sticker? I'm thinking any found at retail will have the sticker on it.

Well, Barricade is like MPM Optimus: great in robot mode, disappointing in alt mode.

Robot mode is fantastic. About as articulated as this design can be.

Car mode is where the problems are. Just like Prime, things don't want to align right, and the tolerances are to much for the roof tabbing, which causes the roof to pop up, leaving a very noticeable gap. I only paid less than 60 bucks for the figure, so I'm keeping it, but I cannot recommend paying full price.

Transformers Movie Masterpiece MPM-5 Barricade Sighted In Canada

Weapon: Star Saber Sword
Thanks to a heads up from our fellow fans over at Cybertron.ca, we have news that MPM-5 Barricade has made it to Canadian retail!

The figure, spotted by Cybertron.ca member steamwhistle, was found at a Canadian Toys R' Us, and was sold for $119.99 plus, tax, which is around $95 US dollars. With this figure now showing up in Canada, it should not be too long before he starts showing up elsewhere, though with the American Toys R' Us closing down, where that could be is still to be determined.

Movie Masterpiece Barricade has been a figure many were eager to buy, as he is one of the most memorable Decepticons of the live action franchise, he is the first Decepticon movie masterpiece figure in the new line up started by MPM-3 Bumblebee, and he is the first all original Decepticon movie masterpiece, as Starscream was a repainted version of his leader retail toy.

So with the figure out in the wild, begin your hunt, and let us know if you find him, and what you think of him, in the comments section below!

So I got my own MPM-5 today, and I have some thoughts to give you guys.

I do really like him, he is really cool. The bot mode is gorgeous, and I love how movie accurate he is. The moving mouth is a nice touch, and I love his hands, those are my favorite parts of him.

But I do have a slight issue with the shoulders: they do not want to stay up, and keep falling back down into his torso. I have accepted that they will slump, but it's still a tad disappointing. Also, his weapon is dope as hell, but it doesn't like to stay in position too much. I wish it split in half, it would look better.

His transformation is fun, and probably the best of the 3 so far. Alt mode is standard sweetness.

He and Bee are really close in terms of fun and quality to me, hard to really pick which is better. Bee holds together better in bot mode, Barricades transformation is a bit better, and both have awesome car modes. Probably the thing that would put Barry over the top is the face that his is so stable on his feet, and he feels the heaviest of the 2. He ain't going nowhere despite the smallish look of his legs

What's your limit? HLJ has him for pre-order for $77 plus probably another $6 or $7 for the slowest shipping option.

I'm always paranoid of getting sealed MPs off of Ebay... especially if they ship from China....

I ended up getting mine on TFSource for more than I would have liked to pay. Guess I should have checked HLJ. Has there been any confirmation if the Takara/import versions are *any* different than the Hasbro release?

I thought there was talking of Prime/Bee having darker (lighter?) grey plastic?

We are talking different currencies here. Is $77 US plus shipping and import fees to Canada so much better than 120 Canadian? Also iron, are you sure that was not a KO? Sounds like the price those KOs are going for.

On-topic... I'm almost liking the Movie MPs better than the Mainline (G1) MPs... I'm really digging the fine detailing on them (though I'd wish they'd pull a bit more paint detail out). Although Sunstreaker still blows my mind for being able to convert between both lambo modes, and how neatly his backpack fits together.

I do wish Barricades "weapon" mode did something cleaner with the rear window piece. But he's other wise super solid balance wise (more so than Bee) and his range of motion is really fun. Though I am starting to wish more had an ab-crunch.

That was my main hesitation... ebay was the first place I looked (surprised BBTS didn't get any) though I did recently see a case of Studio series thundercrackers in San Jose, CA.... so I'm going to be a little miffed if Barricade suddenly shows up. Live and learn I guess.

I haven't noticed my shoulders slump, though they will rotate down depending on how I manipulate the arms (strong ratchets/joints). I *think* the door windows/wings can help a little bit, though I wish between that hinge and the collar/neck area... that all could have clipped in or something.

They were out right before the official ones were, and were sold online, still are. Do you have a link to the listing you could share?

No, upon further investigating, I did buy a KO. Damn, I haven't had a fail like that in a long time. Guess I should have known. While it has on issue (the roof doesn't connect properly in alt mode) it seems to be much higher quality than my Bumblebee or Prime MPMs.


Damn, that is embarrassing. Oh well, it works well on display, I just feel like a bit of an idiot.

Here is how you can do to get a refund without shipping back the KO figure:

1) When receive your figure, click return.
2) Fill in reason as "KO" or "not authentic".
3) Take pictures of your KO figure. There are 2 places you can easily see that are proves of KO. 3.1) The "POLICE" print was misprinted on the trunk while it should be on the spoiler. This could have been fixed but you will still see marks on trunk. 3.2) In the crotch there are 2 C shaped parts that you won't see the opening, while on official figures you will. Basically KO put these parts on the wrong direction.
4) Do not ship it back, as it is illegal to ship inauthentic items. Wait a few days and ask Ebay to step in (there is a button for it).
5) An Ebay employee will be assigned to your case and usually they will ask you to DESTROY the figure and sign something to prove you did it. Then they will refund you at sellers cost.

I highly recommend you destroy the figure like I did, not keeping it to yourself. KO in my opinion does too much damage to TF collectors community and they should not exist. I am OK with slightly modified/improved KO but a pure bootleg like this should be destroyed and not entering the market to confuse people.

This has me super curious. If its illegal, then how come there are tons of listings, which describe the item to be a KO? Shouldnt E-Bay take them down? I get the idea that shipping an inauthentic product if they advertize it as authentic is illegal, but if they give the customer all the info regarding the legitimacy, does that give them a free pass (from e-bay)?

Seller did nothing wrong. He had it listed as a KO. I'm the idiot that missed it. It was a noob mistake, one I thought myself long since passed.

This has me super curious. If its illegal, then how come there are tons of listings, which describe the item to be a KO? Shouldnt E-Bay take them down? I get the idea that shipping an inauthentic product if they advertize it as authentic is illegal, but if they give the customer all the info regarding the legitimacy, does that give them a free pass (from e-bay)?

Yes, as long as it is listed as a KO, it's all good.

That I am not sure. The one I bought did not say KO. It might even related to where you ship from.

1) When receive your figure, click return.
2) Fill in reason as "KO" or "not authentic".
3) Take pictures of your KO figure. There are 2 places you can easily see that are proves of KO. 3.1) The "POLICE" print was misprinted on the trunk while it should be on the spoiler. This could have been fixed but you will still see marks on trunk. 3.2) In the crotch there are 2 C shaped parts that you won't see the opening, while on official figures you will. Basically KO put these parts on the wrong direction.
4) Do not ship it back, as it is illegal to ship inauthentic items. Wait a few days and ask Ebay to step in (there is a button for it).
5) An Ebay employee will be assigned to your case and usually they will ask you to DESTROY the figure and sign something to prove you did it. Then they will refund you at sellers cost.

I highly recommend you destroy the figure like I did, not keeping it to yourself. KO in my opinion does too much damage to TF collectors community and they should not exist. I am OK with slightly modified/improved KO but a pure bootleg like this should be destroyed and not entering the market to confuse people.

Thank you for this list and the directions. The one I got was not labeled a KO anywhere, and the listing said "authentic." And I checked, and mine has the signs of the KO. So now I am super pissed at this seller, he is about to hear from me, and I am very loud
