    So this is what my movie custom Barricade looks like right now. I use enamels on him. First I gave the parts I was going to paint over a flat black coat and then I drybrushed the silver on. I then updated pieces I had drybrushed into another flat black and put a gloss coat on there. (I didn't have gloss black) Then I drybrushed some pieces with a gloss purple (over the silver) to get that movie look.

    I forgot to mention I used pieces of the Robot Replica to add to the arms and replace the head. I also cut away all the of the original hands.

    Ofcourse I also added the lightbar!

    Oh and I modified the pushbar so it would resemble the movie version more. Three more bars and 4 holes.

    When all the paint has cured I'll make comparison pics with my second Barricade.

    I'll need the Repro labels but paypal is acting up! :(

    Also I retooled my Frenzy 2.0 because my little brother sat on him.

    Frenzy 2.5 now has three digits on all hands and more articulation. I also cut away a lot of plastic from the head and mid section.

    In addition I repainted a stikfas kid to resemble Sam from the movie with his strokes T shirt and he's waving around his grandpa's glasses.

    Hope you like! I'll post more pics when the thing is done!

    cool work. that's one of my favorite moves...flat black with silver metallic drybrush, however, I like to put a middle-of-the-road in there also, I use the silver enamel just on the last pass, to highlight.

    Reprolabels have been good to me, Jaime over there is real cool. I was making my own stickers via a friend with a vinyl plotter, but they are so much better, especially for cob/autobot symbols, I have a set coming SOON for my smokescreen custom.

    HAHA thats funny, funny in a god way though. Very unique.



    Now, back on topic. Cant wait to see your finished Barricade, Frenzy is top knotch and Sam is just all kinds of LOLs. I want to do something similiar with my Barricade, but I dont have enough faith in my modeling ability to do the arm mods.

    I didn't think there was any hope for this version of Frenzy. You've proved me wrong! He looks so much better with some added poseability and a better paint job.

    I finished up a few details and put Barricade together today. The pictures do not do the thing justice :( 

    Forgot to mention that I filled up all the screwholes too.

    I still have to do the car mode (tires and some details)

    I'm quite pleased. Maybe his legs could use a bit more black.

    Compared to the original Barricade

    One with and one withour the flash. The flash sucks, it highlights all the ugly parts...

    I really like how the head turned out! Very evil. It almost scream "ARE YOU USERNAME..." to me

    The original pushbar compared to my modified.

    I'll have pics of the car mode next week. Only minor changes on that.

    It's very cool ! :thumb  - but you're right it needs a bit more dark/black tint to it.

    I was hesitant to do the RR head mod on mine, but damnit if that doesn't finally convince me, just looks great.
