Earlier this morning, Hasbro officially revealed Masterpiece MPM-5 Barricade from the Transformers Movie Universe, which we first heard rumors about earlier this year back in September. You can view our previous news stories about MPM-5 Barricade here. Without further ado, here is the information Hasbro posted via their Pulse website about this highly anticipated figure, which will join the ranks alongside previous Masterpiece Movie figures such as MPM-4 Optimus Prime, MPM-3 Bumblebee and Starscream. It is currently assumed that Toys R Us will be the exclusive retailer for this figure, though that has not been confirmed yet. MPM-5 Barricade will be released in 2018.

I was disappointed at first by the lack of painted rims, until I realized that Barricade has black rims in the movie. I never noticed that before. I also don't remember him having that much blue. Looks good though.

If we ever get an MPM Frenzy, I want him to come with CD shuriken and a Ding-dong for accessories. And maybe a voice chip. I really like his voice.

I'll reserve any excitement until we have in hand reports.


Almost every Masterpiece figure has flaws. That's kinda why I always considered the title ironic.

Opitmus Prime is fantastic. Just the truck mode alignment issues bring it down but I don't tend to transform them much into vehicle mode anyways.

This figure looks amazing and improves on all the issues I had the otherwise fine Human Alliance figure such as the hands and general proportions and structure.

Now that looks incredible. He is going to be pre-ordered!!

It is really telling that they put this much love into Barricade, and he is the only Decepticon movie masterpiece so far who wasn't just a repainted leader class figure, AKA original mold for the MPM series. And I love his arms and wheel weapon!!

Well, being at MP level is probably the only thing that could get a bayverse figure to have enough detail and engineering that it would look half-way decent. I was always disappointed by the bayverse figures because they were never as detailed and articulated as their on-screen counterparts. What's the point of putting in all that detail for the movie if the figures they are promoting are always a disappointment by comparison?

The only MPMs who were just redecoed Leader class molds were MPM-1 Starscream and MPM-2 Bumblebee. MPM-3 Bumblebee and MPM-4 Optimus Prime were all new molds.

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

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!

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.

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!

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

I find the longer I'm in this hobby the less I enjoy the movie designs. To me, they're not "beautifully detailed" they're jumbled eye sores with barely any defining features. Say what you will about the G1 designs but at least they're clean and memorable. I feel that the bayformer designs try way too hard to be "edgy and cool" and often miss the mark on both.

IMO, that has more to do with them being Bayformers rather than being Transformers. Ever since the first Bay film, I have been under the impression that the people responsible for these designs weren't even familiar with the franchise to start of with. Look at Starscream and Megatron.. these were ABSOLUTELY terrible designs! I think the toymakers have done a fairly decent job creating toys from pathetic movie character designs (although MPM-4 was disappointing due to the trickiness of lining everything up), but again that's just my opinion.

What Hollywood should really do is fire Bay, and get those who were involved with the 1986 animated movie to create a "real" Transformers film.
