    Im thinking from my impression that Barricade is actually Prowl in deep cover. In the novel, he basically stays on the Nemesis, and doesnt really do much of anything outside of relaying communications . In the movie he is like the forward guy following the autobots. Its a good opportunity to be the spy. And what happens to Sam when he has him pinned? Why not kill him? I think he is there to keep tabs on the Decepticons. Even cops in deep cover have to commit crimes to inbed themselves deeper. And was there ever a "Police Car" decepticon? And look at Barricade's face. I see some Prowl homages goin on. What do you guys think?

    No, cause why would he fight BB?

    He probably needs him for the All spark

    I hope not. No character-changing copouts or deus ex machina in the form of "oh, he was with us all along!" please... I want my evil cop cars of doom to be evil cop cars of doom.

    That is definitely not prowl, they make a repaint of him as Prowl.

    Prowl would be a good sequel bot.

    That idea is too smart for a Michael Bay movie.

    this is true, but not for a spielberg movie. i think this is a pretty cool idea, but i SERIOUSLY doubt that its true...just because.

    i can see that, and i've heard this many times before that barricade is really prowl undercover, and it would fit the prowl character, he's a cop, or atleast a cop car. i think it'd be cool if that turned out to be prowl and he came to the autobots aid in the end of the movie.

    I'd rather they leave Barricade just as he is: a Decepticon. I don't understand the need for every police car to be Prowl and I like the fact that, for once, someone thought to make a Decepticon disguise himself as a member of law enforcement to make it easier for him to infiltrate our society, work among us, and remain under the radar.

    agree 100%. Sides Prowl was just a cop car, nothing about him was very well police-esque. Logical guy, 2nd in command, more of a listener than a talker unless he was giving commands oh and voiced by an Aryan asshole. Though I really want Prowl in a sequel but what would he TF into now? Could make him a SWAT truck maybe I dunno.

    I'd posted this theory on Seibertron before Barricade was revealed. I'm sure it would have been a cool twist for the story, but since seeing his character, I'm convinced he's bad to the bone...errr, circuit.
