Found on the official Weibo page for Hasbro Transformers, we have a contest for fans to coincide with the release of the third figure in the Movie Masterpiece line, MPM-5 Barricade! Our machine translation (and Mandarin, for that matter) are a bit unhelpful, but it looks like fans will have a chance to visit the Hasbro offices - location unknown, as there are no Hasbro offices as such in the Chinese region, except for Singapore and manufacturing in Shanghai and other traditional venues - and preview the MPM5 figure as it is fully revealed to the collector world. How to enter? Entrants can simply post an image on Weibo of any of their currently existing Barricade figures present in their collection by November 20th!

If you're a Weibo member, pick out your favourite law enforcing changing robot, be it from the live-action movies or elsewhere in the Transformers line of toys, and zhù nǐ hǎo yùn!

Invite a Transformers fan to participate in the [MPM05 Barricade] the world's first video review of the shooting, you will also be the world's first fans to experience this toy!

Review time: November 22, 2017 afternoon.
Location: Hasbro Office.

In addition, you can also visit Hasbro Office, and be the first to experience the new Transformers 2018 products. Starting immediately, forward and/or upload photos that comment on any Barricade in your possession, you have a chance to be the lucky fan.

The result will be announced on November 20.

[Note] Non-members cannot upload photos in the comments of the fans, when forwarding can be uploaded.

I have to point out that Singapore is in South East Asia and not a “Chinese region”...

While fans are waiting for more images of Transformers Movie Masterpiece MPM-5 Barricade, we now have images of the box he will come in, courtesy of 淘宝店变形金刚改造工厂 on weibo (aka TF-Factory). While both the Takara Tomy and Hasbro logos are on the box, as is the case for all MPM releases since the 2017 line revival, we can tell this is the Hasbro packaging due to several languages being found on the box, and none of them being Japanese.

The packaging lets us know a few features such as a moving mouth mechanism and shows us what Barricade looks like with his mouth open. We also see that it is officially licenced. And for those wondering why the Canadian address is the most prominent one among all the legal writing in the back, it is because the box itself was printed in Canada (as is always the case for Hasbro Transformers products products). While we do not know the exact price yet nor the date of release, we assume the price will be around $80, the same price point Bumblebee was at.

Here is a list of additional facts regarding this product:

Features Barricade’s iconic Rotor Blade Wheel weapon from the TRANSFORMERS film
First Movie Masterpiece figure with a Movable Faceplate, allowing fans to play out their favorite scenes from the TRANSFORMERS film
Figure built with Die Cast Parts & features 170 Deco Ops with 30 Points of Articulation!
Vehicle-mode features Barricade’s accurate, licensed vehicle from the TRANSFORMERS film: Saleen S281 Extreme Ford Mustang Police Car
Product was designed with ILM Movie CAD Files from the Blockbuster film TRANSFORMERS
Figure features most film-accurate conversion to-date!
Item is the 1st Movie Masterpiece Decepticon to hit the market in over 8 years!

For the fans waiting for more images of Transformers Movie Masterpiece MPM-5 Barricade, we have something for you. While not exactly new images of the toy itself, images of the Japanese instructions have popped up online. They were found on the usual weibo page but have since been removed. We do have them below for you to see. The biggest take away is that he has 40 documented steps, making him very complex. This does not include the added steps needed to convert his arm into his massive movie accurate weapon. These instructions also further confirm the absence of Frenzy, which was also absent from the images on the box.
While we do not know the exact price yet nor the date of release of the Hasbro version, we assume the price will be around $80, the same price point Bumblebee was at. The Takara version will be released in April 2018 and is around the $100 mark depending on your retailer of choice.

Here is a list of additional facts, provided by Hasbro, regarding this product:

Features Barricade’s iconic Rotor Blade Wheel weapon from the TRANSFORMERS film
First Movie Masterpiece figure with a Movable Faceplate, allowing fans to play out their favorite scenes from the TRANSFORMERS film
Figure built with Die Cast Parts & features 170 Deco Ops with 30 Points of Articulation!
Vehicle-mode features Barricade’s accurate, licensed vehicle from the TRANSFORMERS film: Saleen S281 Extreme Ford Mustang Police Car

Look how much more readable those instructions are compared to what we got with Titan's Return. I can actually tell what part is toy and what part is paper.

So basically 10 steps less than the regular toy.

We have some sweet MPM 05 Transformers Movie Masterpiece Barricade news to share with you. Bruce Dong, a Transformers fan, has posted a video of him unpacking Masterpiece Barricade as well as transforming him from car to robot and then back to car again. The video is on Facebook but can be viewed below.

Here we learn a few tidbits that were previously unknown. Firstly, unlike with the similarly scaled Human Alliance version, the saw blade is not integrated within the toy. It is a separate piece that must be attached, in a very similar fashion to Masterpiece Hot Rodimus' saw blade weapon. The toy also comes with a clear stand for the weapon. Also, the weapon does not freely spin. It can rotate but only as long as you are pushing it.

The transformation does not seem as complex as MPM Optimus Prime and seems more akin in complexity to the Human Alliance version.

Below you will find screenshots which include him scaled with the other MPM Movie Masterpiece toys, along with the video and additional facts, provided by Hasbro, regarding this product.

Damn, as far as I'm concerned they have totally nailed it this time. That is a gorgeous figure and I intend to have that.

In addition to the recently posted video review and screencaps of the latest figure in the Hasbro and Takara Tomy collaboration on the Transformers Movie Masterpiece line, we have some in-hand images of the MPM-5 figure of Barricade, sporting his live-action design from the first appearance in the 2007 Paramount movie!

The images, mirrored below for your viewing convenience, are from regular suspect on weibo NOTRAB, and show off both the car mode (a licensed Saleen S281 Extreme Ford Mustang Police Car) and the robot mode, with a lot of emphasis on the latter. We get to see the face sculpt, and some of the features that Hasbro is highlighting in its marketing such as the Rotor Blade Wheel, the moveable faceplate, and some poseability. Take a look below, and let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!

Meh. Looks okay but I'm the type of person who doesn't like to half ass lines so if I'm getting one mpm I'd like to get the others to go with it, but bumblebee and Optimus are pretty disappointing so I'll probably skip this line as a whole.

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
