    UPDATE: Added the new Reprolabel set: Post #7
    UPDATE: Additional painting: Post #10
    UPDATE: Timesynch's wheel mace: Post #13

    Did a little work on DotM Barricade. I painted his white midsection black and added some silver to his weapon. Also painted the side rear lights red and dabbed some white and silver on the small front lights. As someone showed in the feedback forum, I loosened the screws behind the lower front bumper pieces so the can now twist down in robot mode...

    Yeah BOTM....Bork of the Moon! Jeeze! LOL j/k

    This looks great tho! I love the added effect of loosening those screws to break up the bumper.
    Good job!

    Botm... Oops, I wish I could blame that on a smart phone :) 
    Thanks for the comments, guys!
    The gray parts don't bother me nearly as much as the white. Maybe I'll paint them some other time...

    Burping on the Moon Barricade looks great. LOVE the custom claw gun thingy from the film.

    If this were a Hatchet custom I could go with BARK of the Moon :) 
    Yeah, the Reprolabels and Fakebusker's gun are great!

    Some painting

    Big thanks to the mod who fixed the title for me! :) 
    Last night I did some painting on this guy: his arms, legs, and midsection. I still would like to paint his chest and face some and add some more of the light purple details...

    Very cool painting! Loves me some Barricade.

    Have you tried swapping his feet (from one leg to the other) and turning his waist and hip joints around 180? A little parts-forming, true, but I think it improves his proportions (gives him some added height too) and leg articulation quite a bit so he doesn't look so stubby (I know the stubby look is kinda screen accurate but I like a sleeker Barry sans childbearing hips XD).

    Oh, and if you want to add Barry's wheel mace weapon to him, you can use the accessory that comes with Robot Replicas Barricade. I made the hole on the attachment arm slightly bigger using a Dremel, and just popped it onto Barry's elbow ball joint (after removing his forearm; again, more parts-forming).

    Apologies for hijacking your thread but I have a lot of enthusiasm for the DOTM Deluxe mold of the guy and like to share it when I can. XD

    Thanks for the tips, Timesynch! I've been considering shaving away and his ankles and heels to allow his feet to bend back further, allowing him to stand straighter. I think I'll give that a shot...
    I'll also have to be on the look out for a cheap Robot Replica Barricade!

    Wheel Mace

    I tried out your idea, Timesynch! I found the weapon on eBay and made it into a holdable weapon for Barricade using some Lego Technic pieces :) 
    I'll have to paint it some next time I add some more paint to this guy...

    Looks pretty cool. I also noticed the Sideswipe with the rocket pack in the background.
