    So I decided to do some late night research regarding characters to be shown within DOTM, and I may have stumbled upon an interesting find.

    I looked into the character of Crowbar, one of the Decepticon Dreads, and learned that his alternate mode is a Carbon Motors E7 police car, or rather, this:

    [​IMG]

    Now, here is the screen capture we have of Barricade in the Chicago battle scene:

    [​IMG]

    As of right now, the only distinct similarity I see between these too images is the word "Police" on the car door, and the robot's arm. It may be possible that the robot we see in this shot is in fact Crowbar, and not Barricade. Now does it seem possible to anyone else?

    I realize a lot of Barricade enthusiasts are going to be trolling the crap out of this, but I'll just say now that this is only my own speculation which I wanted to share with the rest of you. I have no other way of saying I'm 100% other than one similarity. I do hope it is in fact Barricade within the scene, in all honesty, but this is just something interesting which I stumbled upon.

    Also, I realize the Crowbar Cyberverse toy shows no print on the side doors, but that could have been a manufacturing choice made by Hasbro to save costs. It would not be the first time they cut short on paint decor on some of their toys (DOTM Deluxe Sideswipe).

    You may be onto something, but for now I think its Barricade. Although, what you just said is quite convincing.

    It's the Barricade model. I'm not saying this to troll anyone.

    Check the trailer in 1080p.

    Barricade's Barricade.
    Crowbar is Crowbar.

    Crowbar's the Carbon Motors E7 police car only in the toyline.

    It just something that clicked when I first saw the images of the E7. It's not even something I fully believe in myself.

    I think I've posted this before, but what then hell. Barricade has his "POLICE" thingy across one door, where as Crowbar has it across two. The Decepticon in the screen capture has the word "POLICE" across one door, therefore it is Barricade.

    And the whole time you only see "one door". You can't see his other arm in this shot.

    Here is a CGI render of Barricade to help your theory:

    [​IMG]

    Oh wait, the "Police" logo is on both doors (arms). Looks like this doesn't help...:rolleyes2

    Yeah, but the whole word is on that "one door", it's not split in half like it is on Crowbar. Get what I'm saying?

    Where is there a confirmed picture of this? Other than a small Cyberverse toy where tough calls need to be made.

    The picture you posted of the E7, it has it split in half. The doors make up the arms of car Transformers. So when you compare this...

    [​IMG]

    To this...

    [​IMG]

    They don't really match up. But when you compare this...

    [​IMG]

    To this...

    [​IMG]

    They match up pretty damn well. So, now do you get what I'm saying?

    Also on his shoulder u can see the Decepticon Police shield logo, if it was Crowbar the door would say Poli with part of the I cut off also u can see on his arm that it says 911 if u compare CGI renders u will clearly see they are in the same spot as Barricades i can also clearly see his pointed shoulder wings from the windows of the doors of the car and i can also see he has the same tires as the CGI renders as well , its clearly Barricade i would stake my entire transformers collection on it.

    This also, we would have seen Crowbar's vehicle mode on set. I'm not saying Crowbar isn't in the movie or anything, but that Decepticon in the screencap is Barricade. I'd stake my ROTF Leader Jetfire on it.

    Sorry for not having a source to this but awhile ago didn't somebody say not to assume to hard on the characters and that just because we dont see the vehicles doesn't mean there wont be new or in this case returning Cybertronians such as Longhaul, Desert Camo Brawl, Sideways and Barricade, perhaps he appears only in robot form that's also how its looking for Hatchet as well.
