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.

"Moveable faceplate" means his mouth opens?

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.

I like how it doesn’t mention MPM-2. I know that MPM-1 is essentially as good as the modern ones, was MPM-2 actually that good?

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'm not sure it's a good or bad thing I'm more excited for this than the entire TLK toyline. Bring on Barricade!

I think they were merely talking characters as Bumblebee has appeared in the line twice.

As much as I love the look of this guy, he needs Frenzy to complete the set. If the Deluxe and Human Alliance versions can, than this should too!

Well... yeah. It makes sense.
I was just curious as I’ve never really heard anyone mention it.

The face has too much white. It looks good but I have no interest in movie MP.

This sculpt looks amazing! The colors... not so much. The blue accents and black definitely-not-lipstick make him look like a movieverse Shadow Striker. :-? Hopefully it won't look this way in-hand - he was the first MPM I would consider getting!

here's hoping the Takara Ver has silver paint apps instead of that grey, and some better decos. I'll wait to see which is the better buy.

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!!
