Deluxe Barricade was teased last year, and now we have the solid confirmation he is a Prowl remold (as if there was much doubt to begin with, even without the teaser image). Have the official images fully wetted your appetite for these figures or have they left you feeling dry? Let us know here on the Energon Pub at Seibertron.com!

I'd say that counts as a reveal of Seige Smokescreen, too, whilst we're at it. Same head. Same guns. They'll just lose the light bar on the car mode.

Man, it seems no Micromaster set will ever be able to look anywhere as good as the Battle Patrol and Air Strike Patrol. >:oP

A different face sculpt for Barricade would have been nice. Make him stand out a bit more than having a 'reverse-Prowl' colour palette.

I am.... slightly disappointed in Barricade. I'm glad that he's not an exact repaint of Prowl, and instead uses Smokescreen's head, but I wanted him to have his own, unique headsculpt. Love that vehicle mode though. Here's hoping a 3rd party will release a unique head for him.

Thumbs up for the new Micromasters, even the almost-only-repainted ones are good.
About Barricade... meh. I was fully prepared for a simple Prowl repaint, yet I was hoping for something a little more original. The movie character is probably one of the most memorable 'cons, it's a shame they didn't try to add a little more personality to this toy... they could at least include its trademark saw blade.

I think the inspiration for using Smokescreen came directly from Guido Guidi himself, with this old classic bit of art.

A mouth plate or a partial mouth plate ala Optimus Primal, would have worked a lot better though.

I agree. I actually think a new mold that could be Barricade and Strongarm would be a much better mix, but I have a feeling we won't be seeing Strongarm again in a very long time.

Yep, same thought I had about the Coneheads to be fair. Barricade is based on a Movie character, so his face shouldn't look like the default.

Now if Astrotain is Leader, why not Leader Blitzwing as well? (With Animated Face changing Gimmick?)
And a Silver Shockwave? :lol:

Sans naff face change gimmick. Blitzwing doesn't need to be reduced to Transformers' Man-E-Faces anymore.

We knew it was coming, and we know repaint are a fact of life, but it is still such a massive let down and disappointment to see.

My kids have been asking for, and I've gotten them most of siege, but Barricade will be one I refuse to pay money for on general principal.

Barricade is kinda disappointing. I was hoping for something closer to his Movie or Evergreen face, but instead we get a repaint of the lamest of the heads from the Datsum bros. That Smokescreen head isn't my favorite, and I so wish they had gone a different path for his head.

I love this for months people were wanting to see barricade waiting and expecting him to be a black prowl and there he is and people are complaiming that that’s exactly what he is and wanted.

Transformers fandom. Textbook definition of bipolar syndrome

Wait.. that's Barricade?
...
So, Barricade is just "Nemesis Prowl".

Errrrhhhh....... ¯\_(⏓ヘ⏓)_/¯

A case of when expectation meets reality, more likely. Barricade maybe a Police Car, hence Prowl comparisons. But I think even when first announced the expectation was for more than just Black Prowl. The fandom ate up mere palette swaps back in the 80's. More is expected now.

So that's barricade eh? About what I was expecting, okay I thought it would use the Prowl head. I love the Micromasters, even if only a few of them have decent combined modes.

What toys are we waiting for reveal wise now? Just the other exclusives?

I think this is more a case of people expecting a different more movie head, not a Smokescreen pretool head.
