    With the introduction of the evil police car and giant helicoptor in the movies, would you like to see these characters, in similar alt-modes, done up in a Classics style? Personally, I think it would be VERY cool. There are already characters in G1 called Barricade and Blackout, but a new police car and helicoptor body for them would certainly be cool. Also, they could appear in the comics like Dropshot did.

    I hope that Barricade is just a Drift repaint with a lightbar,and Blackout have a new mold with his Mircomaster partner as his Mini-Con minion.

    Cool idea.
    I'd probably buy it.

    A classics style Barricade would be cool. I can see Hasbro doing a "Classics Prowl vs. Barricade" set.

    The boxset could be called "Good Cop vs. Bad Cop."

    I see him paired up with the new repaint of BB. Keep the movie vibe going, since BB's got the movie paint job now.

    Nah, that'd be way too small for Blackout. He has enough size issues as it is when it comes to toys without being a deluxe. No, but in all seriousness, I would like to see a Classics Style Blackout based on the Movie form, maybe in ultra class if possible. If he had to be a repaint though, I think Universe Blades would probably be the best choice. Thats just off the top of my head. I'm not sure if there are any other voyager or ultra sized helicopters in the Universe/Classics/Generations line.

    Barricade would also be a cool addition to the classics line. Again, preferably a new mold if possible. But if it had to be a repaint/re-mold I would have to go with Universe Prowl, and definitely put him in a two pack with the new Reveal the Shield Bumblebee.

    I'd be open to both characters but I would hope that another mold was used for Barricade than Drift because I think that POS should either be heavily retooled so the articulation isn't restricted by all the kibble or destroyed so that no other awesome characters like Blurr can be dumped on and given a lazy "new" toy when they deserved their own mold.

    Pass!

    Other than the fact it's a completely different style of Helicopter with a different transformation, why not?

    A repaint couldn't work all that well for Blackout, since the most recent helicoptors we've gotten have been deluxes, in movie style, and don't give off a very menacing vibe. I could see Barricade as a retool of Wheeljack with a light bar and a new head however.

    New mold? That will be awesome! :thumbs2: 

    But I'll be happy if the Makers repaint Classics Prowl into Barricade.

    Jeez man, tell us how you really feel... :rolleyes2 

    I'd say Barricade and Blackout are in the same camp as Lockdown. They can both probably translate well to other forms of TF media, like Lockdown did when put in the G1 universe. I'd love to see them both in Classics form.

    i would love a new blackout mold, though i am not sure what it would be.
    Barricade would be fabulous as well, as long as they give him a brutish, rough around the edges look. TFU Prowl is too sleek and clean for that, IMO.
    the new Wheeljack mold seems a decent possibility with some tweaking.

    gotta remember, he's a squad car, not some car that Crockett and Tubbs tool around in between dope buys and babes.
    lol.

    I would like a Classic-ised version of them. Problem is choosing a alt-mode for them, especially Blackout and getting the toy to not suck like the movie Voyager version that was shit. If they did a Leader Blackout, a new transformation and style is needed to make him worth, I don't like remolds that much.
