Looks nice. Keeping an eye on this one. Look forward to seeing better pics of it and posed fighting with MPM Bee.

It's Masterpiece, outside of Cheetor, they haven't done a fake chest. I highly expect this to be real.

Maybe the orange highlights refer to any die-cast pieces. Looks fantastic!

That's what I wondered (though my mistake calling them orange. That was going by the first pic I couldn't see well, on the bigger one those lines are definitely red). :)

I don't think we ever got a good look on screen, but in the 2007 video game they most certainly are. In fact, they extend out further as Barricade's primary attack in the Autobot campaign as gigantic flails.

Interesting. Like at first glance, but experience with the previous 2 Movie MPs makes me very hesitant to get excited.

I've heard about problems with Prime's truck mode alignment but what was wrong with Bee? The folks I know who bought that one seem very happy.

Bee has trouble standing since he is very top heavy and the tabs that keep his feet together dont secure properly so his feet become undone and he falls over.

Hm odd. I asked friends if they've had any Bee trouble and they've said none. Dunno if common problem or just one of those things (like how TFWiki lists issues with certain parts on Sqweeks and Berserker popping off easily like it's just fact when those parts don't come off easy on my figures at all)

Though Masterpiece line isn't exactly known for being free of flaws anyways.

MPM Bee does have those problems, but those are also the only real problems I have with the figure. He's awesome! ;)^

But back to Barricade, I was thinking the other day that he'll probably come with Frenzy, and if that's the case, do you think Frenzy will be able to transform or will he be like the HA version?

also, the pricesame for the mpm line are close to stupid high. Any flaws, even minor, are not acceptable.

Says right on the image "Flat Black (TF BK2) Placement" and if you look at the color guide below it all of the "TF BK2" markers point to the same spots that were highlighted. Basically it's all the vents and other parts that wouldn't be waxed on a car normally so they'll be a flat black instead. I don't see anything that indicates die cast immediately, I think this is just detail paint apps rather than paint coating large die cast surfaces. I think the chest/front of the car may be die cast since it indicates the headlights being painted on top of black paint and there's no reason to paint a large surface black on this figure unless it's die cast.

Huh. I knew he had long arms just not down to his knees. I'm not complaining, jus didn't realise they were THAT long.

Like Spongebob once said when he was stuck in Sandy's treedome without a helmet and had a vase of water plopped in front of him: "II NEEED IIT!!!" =P~

I personally dont find the prices that bad. They are priced similarly to the MP Seekers right? Less than the Takara SRP on seekers for sure. And I think you get a lot of bang for you buck by comparison. MP Primal was an 85$ toy, Bee seems to be around that ballpark in parts count, no? They are a way better deal than MP Inferno, and if you look at MP 10 being retailed at 160 with the trailer, MPM 4 Prime just being the truck cab at 100$ feels right on the nose. I didnt expect that much more than this looking at their prices, though of course i would have wished for more. In the end, I would have liked to have more paint and less QC problems as much as anyone, but I didnt find the prices unfair compared to how stupidly priced all high end TF collectables are these days. I mean think about it, we are getting an MPM Prime for basically the same price some people are paying for a redeco/retool of TR Sixshot its not terrible value.
