    Frenzy hacked the Airforce 1 computers to find Sam and alerted the Decepticons to the cube's location at the Hoover Dam. He is more important than Barricade.

    Barricade is friggin' awesome and I can't for the life of me figure out why we didn't get a Leader class figure for him...he would have been perfect for ROTF. He'd still make an amazing Baybot MP if they decided to build from scratch (and maybe reboot the movie MP line, away from what they've already done with BB, SS and OP).

    Anyways, Barricade IS AWESOME, I agree 100% and we need a larger bot. Yesterday!

    So at my wife's request (seriously!), we watched the first Transformers movie tonight. And for the first time ever, I took my one and only Barricade toy off the shelf, scrubbed all the dust off of him with a wet toothbrush, and. . . for the first time in the 8 YEARS that I've had him, I transformed him. And I did it without any instructions. He's pretty badass. :D

    I once fairly regularly saw a car with "To punish and enslave" markings and a Decepticon logo ^^

    Yeah, that's dedication right there. That Maserati could not have been a cheap car.

    I'm glad to see all this talk of Barricade's various toys in here!

    His DotM action figure was actually the one that got me back into buying the toys at all after G1. Well, I actually bought the RotF Ravage figure a few years before that, I guess. And I was impressed with the overall design and articulation...but the complete lack of any real alt. mode was kind of disappointing.

    But then I saw the DotM figure and HAD to have it.

    I hadn't tried transforming a TF toy in a couple decades so at first I was pretty frustrated. Ten minutes in with little to no progress I was about ready to just smash the damned thing against the wall and call it a day, lol. I seriously considered buying a second one and paying some kid to transform it for me so I could have one in cop car mode and one in 'bot mode and just leave 'em like that, ffs.

    But I eventually got the hang of it (not worrying about breaking it anymore was the main hurdle, I think) and was pretty damned amazed at how well they'd captured the intricate movie design, kept him so poseable, AND given him a flawless alt. mode. He's a hell of a toy!

    Anytime I'm trying to explain the engineering/puzzle-solving genius of the toylines to a pal, I just show them Evasion Mode Optimus, Leader Class Sentinel, or DotM Barricade and they pretty much get it right away.

    :)

    Now that I think of it... yeah he is the most important Con.

    Also, I like 07' Dlx Barricade more than his DOTM toy.

    When did UM do such a thing?

    Whoa that's awesome!

    I think he did appear a lot more technically than Barricade and did a lot more than any of the others, though ironically was the only one in the first movie not to get a proper toy. The closest was either the FAB or the tiny one that came with Barricade.

    I'd love to see Prowl in the movies.

    But only if he's a prick.

    I own Barricade....He told me to tell you that your musings are inconsequential as you are inferior.
