Looks like most of us won't be waiting till January for Human Alliance Barricade. Youtuber baltmatrix has gotten Barricade off of site sponsor BigBadToyStore and has taken the time to review the figure. He goes over articulation, transformation, interaction with Frenzy, and just about everything you'd expect from a video review. You can check it out on Youtube, or embed in this news post.



Altogether, baltmatrix shows that Barricade is a worthy addition to the Human Alliance series. If you're interested in getting Barricade before Christmas, then you can order it with Human Alliance Sideswipe. Keep in mind BBTS's shipping schedule.

Stay tuned to Seibertron.com, your Ultimate Transformers Resource!

nice to see hasbro went back to the greyish coloured acents rather than the mud brown.

Thank goodness the proportion problems I saw in the photos are mostly gone in the video review! The alt mode looks so much better in the video. The colours are better too, though still could use improvement. I wish more metallic grey was used in the figure.

I hope we see some more early reviews of the figure because Ballmatrix seemed a bit unsure of a few bits of the transformation such as the feet.

Speaking of transformation, I really like how the figure is designed for transforming. It looks like the transformation isn't too complex or involved but offers enough to make it fun and satisfying.

I still think that was more about bad lighting for photos than choosing a wrong color...

It's now gone from 'need to get to keep HABB busy' to 'need'.

I thought as much. Glad to see a difference in color from the pics we saw earlier. Either way, I'll be picking this guy up.

Actually, the reveiwer comments on TFW stated that the camera lighting made the toy look less brown in the video. I think he's saying that it's still there.

in way he he stands barricade his feet are wrong his feet are suppose to be roated around where he has less stabilty pointy ends sticking out in front to stnad same as deluxe which could be why i hate his bot mode his feet do nothing for him to small for his baody to easy to knock over but i may get him either way

great figure still has standing problems with the deluxe version disspointed at first that freanzy doesnt spring out of his chest but i can deal with it

Really Great! Maybe just maybe I don't have to get the Takara Version specifically (in case Hasbro came out first and I'll have to wait). Yeah I still believe pics do not do the figures justice..

This might be more fitting here so I'll repost...I'm gonna have to go against the grain here:

After seeing the youtube review of this I must admit I'm pretty underwhelmed. Seems too close to the deluxe and I don't feel a great need for a bigger version of that figure. After Skids my high hopes for this line returned, but I'm back to feeling a bit disappointed and that Skids is just the exception. They just don't live up to the greatness that was Alternators... The alt modes are there (for the most part,) but the bot modes and transformations just don't match, and I still think it's largely due to the stupid, worthless, accompanying "figure" and the interactive gimmicks they try to incorporate.

Replying to my own post... Not to mention the coolest part of the deluxe transformation was probably the hood splitting to reveal the head, which they left off this version in favor of a more standard and less exciting method.
