For those of you who signed up for the Official Transformers Collectors' Club Subscription Service 2.0 the wait for your fist figure is almost over. Fans have taken to the various social media outlets to report TFSS 2.0 Barricade with Frenzy has started hitting mailboxes. Check out the images below courtesy of Twitter user John DeLuna.

"Cruel? Justice is always cruel."

Barricade is devoted to his desire to see justice rendered. Unfortunately for the suspects he arrests, that justice is Decepticon justice. He is swift, cruel, and most times ignorant of the facts. Like a hunter studying his prey, Barricade stalks the streets of Cybertron looking for any individual who may be working against the great Decepticon ambition. Anyone acting suspicious is quickly detained and rarely seen again.

Over his career, Barricade had a number of partners: Howlback, Garboil, Nightstalker. Eventually each one requested to be transferred to another officer or precinct, but he ultimately gained a true partner in Frenzy. Frenzy excels at interrogation, although not at all useful in the roles of collecting evidence or tracking persons of interest. He also shows a complete lack of familiarity with Decepticon law. His zeal for inflicting pain until a suspect talks borders on the maniacal, but is crucial to Barricade's perfect case closure rate.

I seriously wish I could have gotten a hold of this. It's awesome!

So either Prime Nightstalker is a Decepticon instead of an Autobot, or Barricade's career as a cop stretches as far back as before the war, enabling him to work with a pre-Autobot Nightstalker before the factions rose up.

I really like this figure :D. I will say, as nitpicky as it will sound, the fact that the center piece of the light bar being red, looks a little off, but other than that, this figure's really nice.

I cancelled my Fisitron order and decided to get this guy instead. He looks much better than I was expecting.

wow that looks like a really great figure, it surprises me that a bit of paint can turn a really bad looking figure into an awesome one. But with that said i will never again deal with TFCC

I love how he looks. Can't wait to add Barricade to my Classics collection!

That sounds like a pretty rational theory. I also like the mention of Howlback and Garboil. Love to see e-Hobby characters (and fembots, in Howlback's case) get some love.

This is basically smokescreen beast hunters deluxe mold in black and sirens. still a good figure.

Barricade looks really nice, but it looks like they forgot to paint Frenzy. ;)

My Club membership expires in July, and I assume most of the TFSS figures are going to ship after that. Do I have to renew my membership to receive the remaining figures, or, since I paid for the subscription service in full and upfront, am I safe?


Pre-post disclaimer: I'd still call them, I could be completely wrong on this!

If I recall correctly, if you paid in full you're set, if you're on the installment plan you need to be an active member while they charge the installments.

I'm surprised someone hasn't yet used the Generations FOC Data Discs of the bird, cat, and lion for the three since those should still be available to use.

It uses the tooling that came with the Prowl version of the mold instead of the Smokescreen version (head and lightbar).

Though, I do still kinda wish they had been able to give it a new head to better match the deco's source of inspiration:

I got my barricade in the mail today up in IL.

Just got home to find mine having arrived and waiting for me.

Opening and examining the figure and its contents, the figure is in perfect condition with only two minor quibbles.

The first is a tiny chunk of plastic that needed to be hacked off from the back of its left shoulder/front bumper, as it was keeping the left hood piece from securing to the bumper in vehicle mode.

The second is the more widespread issue of Frenzy being slightly misassembled. His upper legs piece was put on backwards. A simple popping off, turning around, and popping back on fixed that.

misassembled... or intentional MOLD CHANGE! Ha ha.

Got him yesterday, he is as awesome as hoped...but wasn't Rampage already shipping? I still haven't gotten him yet.

Haven't gotten Barricade yet, but man am I disappointed in that micron. Just a hunk of boring gray plastic.
Re: TFSS 2.0 Barricade with Frenzy is Shipping (1579090)
Posted by gothsaurus on June 3rd, 2014 @ 11:14am CDT
Yeah, my expectations for the micron was already lowered by having gotten a lot of the Takara ones. They're fun to assemble, but without any stickers or paint... the all look a bit plain, this one no exception.

BUT all things considered though — and knowing getting a LOAD of bonus microns and an extra figure with this subscription instead of just the six — I am overwhelmingly pleased with the offerings this year. The new head sculpts, concepts, packaging, paint apps, execution, bios, etc. They are all really solid.

There are a lot of fan favorites... and a mix of some of the better molds with a few obscure Takara ones.

Barricade looks really sharp in person, and props for the bonus item. Big smile here.

Just got my Barricade, damn he is nice. Only complaint I have about mine is he's a little floppy from the fairly loos ball joints. But it isn't so bad that he can't stand on his own. He won't be holding up frenzy on his own any time soon though. He looks great in either mode. Props to them for such a good job on this figure, it's beautiful.
