* adds this to the list of why Barricade is the most visible & important Decepticon in the movies.
Just sucks that IDW prematurely killed off Barricade in the comics. The character had a lot of potential (especially in opposing Starscream's scheming). Would've loved a Generations (perhaps Combiner Wars) version of Barricade.
Yeah, it’s unfortunate. Kinda plays into the whole deal, where no one in charge of making creative decisions seemed to realize how popular he was. It seems like they’ve finally gotten the hint since they brought him back for TF5 & now the B.B. movie. I’d like it even more if we got to see him finally make the jump into one of the toons.
I still want a TFUniverse you of Barry! That repaint of Smokescreen left a lot to be desired.
Agreed. I was hoping they would use Barricade in Prime or NuRID ever since they revealed his kickass Aligned design (along with Prowl) but nope, those cool character concepts went unused, which is a shame.
If Barricade does show up in this movie, it'd be interesting to see his bot mode for sure.
Yeah, I have that figure and it's alright; more like they took the Aligned Prowl design and slapped a Barricade deco on him. I much preferred using TF Prime First Edition Vehicon and using that 3P Barricade head, light bar, and sticker upgrade garage kit for Aligned Barricade.
Speaking of Smokescreen repaint, using MP-19 Smokescreen and painting him up in black and white makes for a great Floro Dery/Guido Guidi version of G1 Masterpiece Barricade.
Having Barricade as the main villain is just the smartest thing to do.
