Well this is a bit of a surprise. Thanks to Seibertronians Mindmaster and Sabrblade, we have been directed to in hand pics of an as-yet-unannounced earth-mode version of War for Cybertron Trilogy Barricade. While this isn't completely unexpected, given that Barricade now seems to be the Decepticon version of any Prowl/Bluestreak/Smokescreen mold, it wasn't guaranteed to be made, either.

Given that he's standing next to a cardboard Selects style box, it could easily be assumed that he's going to be released in the Selects line, but as Sabrblade points out....

Everyone, say hello to Netflix Barricade:

Now, to clear up some confusion, this is indeed a Netflix toy and not a Generations Selects toy, despite the presence of a Generations Selects box behind the figure. We first knew about this figure from way back when we got these listings of many other Netflix figures, the first five of which later proving to be real.

As for the box seen in this pics, we don't know whose it actually is, but it definitely looks to be one of the TakaraTomy Select boxes since it has Takara's consistent misspelling of "Generations Selects" as "Generation Selects". Barricade, however, would not be coming in one of these boxes but instead in a normal Walmart Netflix Deluxe class package.

With that said, heeeeeeeeeeere's Barry!

Kind of Lackluster to be honest.

Greetings Seibertronians! Fellow Seibertron user, Praxiusprime77, has let us know that Facebook page, DaimChocReports, has uploaded new shots of the forthcoming Netflix Transformers War for Cybertron Trilogy Spoiler Box #2, or more specifically, it's contents: Nemesis Prime!

These new shots show off Nemesis wielding his weapons (taken from the Power of the Primes Amazon Exclusive Nemesis Prime) and uses for the red Slitherfang repaint the set comes with.

As a bonus the images also show a comparison to Takara's Siege Nemesis Prime, released this past March. The differences in deco choices are apparent but the Netflix release comes with more extras in the was of the aforementioned Red Slitherfang, Giza, and the two double barrelled guns from the Amazon Nemesis Prime, and a black repaint of Earthrise Leader Class Optimus Primes trailer.

Check out the images below:

The images were taken by Chan Fuk Cheung.

Will you be getting this classic black redeco of Optimus Prime? Are you sticking with the Takara version? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

Wait... I thought the bird-sword was omitted from the WFC one?

What's the deal, with ?Hasbro and using dull colors? Like that tan/grey on the trails of the Titan Master OP and the Sleep OP, and now this dark grey instead of black on NP?
I also like the more extensive use of teal on the Takara version.

Also it appears Fangtron will be the first Shield-Type Battlemaster to have non translucent Plastic? I know there had been pics of it before, but they were small. I thought he would be translucent like all the others.

That's an interesting point :-? I didn't think anything of it when I newsed but looking back at the reveal photos, giza was no where to be seen. Now its possible that the photographer added giza but I don't know

Nope, but we only found out he had it a few days ago when in-hand images started appearing:
Netflix-War-For-Cybertron-Nemesis-Prime-01.png

I could have sworn this got posted here already, but I guess not.

I already wasn't intending to replace either of my Siege Datsuns with this ER mold, but this Barricade especially makes it easy. Worse/more boring colors, still no Punish and Enslave on the alt mode (although that's probably for the best given how this year has gone), and the bad-looking ER Smokescreen face? No thank you. The only selling point here is the fact that he gets an actual gun this time in addition to the shoulder guns.

In that case disregard everything I just said. That's a nice surprise for once

I'm glad I POd Nemesis Prime, I'm definitely selling the Amazon one now, this is better. I'm happy to see Barricade comes with all the weapons allotted to the mold.

Don't know if I should go for the more accessible WFC one, or the PotP one with its Evolution gimmick. Storyline potential! :-?

I have and think I prefer the POTP one, but I almost never decombine him and its so big compared to the current Prime and Megs and other leaders that I am kinda looking forward this for a more scale figure. But this combo of Siege Prime with Earthrise trailer is identical to my Optimus and I dont want a straight duplicate

Hasbro's Nemesis Prime looks way better than Takara's overload of teal, especially better truck mode. Barricade looks really good too along with his nearly entirely black car mode. I can't wait to have all of the siege and earthrise datsuns.

:MAXIMAL:

Okay, I do not get what's going on here, but either everyone is really confused or I missed something, cuz hasbro's is the one with the vivid black and teal, tt's is the one with muted colors, you can tell by the color of the wheels who is who, but everyone seems to have them mixed up

If I ever find that Nemesis Prime in store, I may make an impulse purchase.

But Soundwave will be a instant purchase if I found him in store. I won't buy from a scalper though.

Takara's is the one with the teal con symbol, Hasbro nemmy has the purple con symbol. In the comparison photos, TT Nemmy is on the left, hasbro is on the right. This is confirmed by looking at stock images and the in package shot

I'm confused. We thought the snake in the new set was Giza, but in the PotP version the "bird" was Giza. If he comes with both then what's the snake's name?

In my head canon (since I'm going to have both figures) the TT figure is RID Scourge's newest body while the Netflix version is Unicron Trilogy Nemesis Prime/Grand Scourge (if you consider those the same characters, I do). So one is a Decepticon that looks like Optimus and is on sort of the chaotic neutral side while the other is a creation of Unicron that looks like Optimus and is pure evil.

Animated Skywarp = dark gray
War For Cybertron Soundblaster = dark gray
Siege Skywarp =dark gray
Now Earthrise Nemesis Prime = dark gray

This is getting ridiculous now. They're all supposed to be jet black. Why is Hasbro doing this? Is there a logical explanation why they can't just use black plastic?

I'm beginning to think that the red Slitherfang doesn't have a name ..unless that's the spoiler for this set ;)
