Months ago, Jollibee included Cybertron Transformers in their Kids Meal which had me and my old officemates trooping to the nearest outlet first thing in the morning. The toys were decent enough, except for Optimus Prime.
Last weekend, jollibee's at it again, this time with TF Movie toys!
I first saw the pics here, posted by Thunderbreak. And from the pics, I knew Barricade should be the first TF toy I should get. Hell, Barricade is the mose decent-looking TF of the set!
This morning, I bought two Jollibee Kid's meals. The first I got, of course, is Barricade.
I really love Barricade's police car mode. Even in a simplified, cheap Kids Meal version, the badass thing he got going is still there. The toy itself is light and feels a bit flimsy.
Not much tampos, though. No "To punish and enslave" and the decepticon symbol is relocated to the hood. Still looks evil enough for me! I really like this car mode.
The only problem here is that the sides of the car tend to fold inwards easily when you make the car roll on the table while holding it.
And here's the manual.
The funny thing is, for a simple toy like Jollibee Barricade, the manual is far more detailed and thorough than the actual deluxe toy's manual.
In robot mode, Barricade looks faithful to the movie image and to the deluxe toy. And yes, the devilish, impish, evil look? Still present.
While possible, Barricade has a bit of trouble standing on his feet without the supplied plastic stand. Attach it to the stand, and this toy will pass even the strictest ROHML kick test!
Articulation is decent, and the joints are tight enough to make Barricade hold his pose.
JOLLIBEE BARRICADE meets DELUXE BARRICADE
"You gotta earn 'em tampos, boy!"
In car mode, Jollibee Barricade ups the deluxe toy on one thing - all wheels touch the ground! Aside from that, and the lack of tampos, all seems good.
Now, check out the transformations.
Jollibee Barricade maintains two crucial transformation steps. The only difference is the transformation of the legs. This is more evident in the robot modes.
In robot mode, Jollibee Barricade still looks evil enough. The lack of paint on the face makes Jollibee Barricade look more like an evil ninja, though.
ROBOT or CAR?
I'll pick car mode!
- retains the evil, badass look and stance of the deluxe and movie versions
- good car mode
- enough articulation for playability and tight joints to boot
- came with food
- all plastic parts means you could bring this toy with you when you go bathing
- a bit on the flimsy side
Whoah! higher rating than the deluxe? Of course, but put things in perspective here- among the Jollibee Transformers, this is the best, hence the rating.
