    Hi there! Good to see ya.

    Y'know, one of the things I liked about the first Bay movie was Barricade. He was just cool. I liked the idea of a Decepticon cop car, especially if the 'con likes messing around with humans.

    So, I got to thinking it would be cool to see the character in a G1/Classics style. I wanted him to appear to be from that "era" so I immediately decided that I didn't want him to have freakish claw hands or a insect like face. I wanted a G1 look.

    I used various enamels for the body. Two shades of purple were used for details with some light silver drybrushing, and a label pack from dear ol' Reprolabels. The car light was Film-Barricades.The head belonged to Cybertron Thundercracker. The chainsaw belonged to a Zoid.

    Hope you like the pics, he was really fun to make!

    Excellent work! I think using Cybertron TC's head was a great choice. :thumb

    I hate that mold but I like what you've done with it. The color scheme is very cool though I don't think he comes across as aggressive as movie Barricade (who is one of my all time favorite Transformer designs and his HA toy is one of my favorite figures) but maybe that's due to me coming to really dislike G1 non-mouthplate faces and finding them too 'cutesy'. Anyways it's very well executed for what you wanted to do and the paintscheme looks great.

    I myself am quite partial to the movie Barry design, but I think this interpretation fits particularly well too.He is a character of deception and pretenses, and the choice of head is quite apt.

    I even like the 'wings', a nice homage to the movie design. Great job! Very neat.

    Great work here. The paint looks really nice. I also dig the concept. I think we're gonna start seeing Barracade more in the future of the franchise too, especially after seeing he's in the new video game coming out

    This is beyond excellent. I've been kicking around the same idea for a while - I may have to steal yours. :D 

    The only way I'd change this is add a push-bar to the front - steal it off of Universe Ironhide or an actual Barricade, whatever, but he needs the push bar.

    Pretty sweet.

    I have to say the simple detail of positioning the fender kibble behind the head, to homage the movie characteristics, is rather ingenious. Nice job.

    Very nice. I think this is very well done. He fits right in with the other cons.

    Very creative take on Barricade. Everything about this custom screams badass.

    This is great. I've always wanted to see Barricade done in Classics form. You should totally make a Sideways using the Lambo mold. Maybe even a Classics Prime with the flame treatment.
