    I am not a fan of the movies really, they are alright, but not for me. I did however enjoy some of the new characters, and at the top of that list is Barricade.

    Let's test your memories? I originally did this custom about two years ago, anyone remember?

    I was never completely happy with him, and I was never 100% down with the choice of head. Fast forward a bit and we get Bot-Shots released, one look at Barricade and I knew his head would be sacrificed for this custom. I finally found repro labels (they were in the movie section, I kept requesting them to be cut for a Classics Prowl mold, but they work just the same).

    Pretty damn happy with this chap. Might add the grill at the front some time, but very happy with this.

    alt mode please! great idea! the head is a BIT cartoony, but i honestly think it's the best we can do. I saw the potential in the Bot Shots too. Great job all around!!

    Although I'm not much of a fan of Prowl-into-Barricade repaints, I like what you did with the bot mode, with all the purple.

    Head looks too cartoony for Classics, but can't really blame you since it's the only non-movie styled Barricade looking head without making one from scratch. Looks pretty good.

    Eh, one persons cartoony is another persons character. I'm very happy with this as is. Thanks for all the suggestions though.

    Nice job. I think Cybertron Downshift (the green Wheeljack-ish Muscle Car) would be a better base for a Classics Barricade though. Especially the car mode, front end for a chest, and the pop out claw on the front end (custom into Frenzy ejector).

    Not sure how it would look with the engine head popped out, but maybe one can level the hood off a bit to make it look more police car than muscle car.
