    My only critique is if you do a video review,
    Please show the transformation

    No transformation = pointless to review TRANSFORMERS.

    Also, get a better camera. You work for an Online Retailer. You should be doing reviews with an at least 480p able camera.

    720p is Recommended. 1080 is Exceptional. :)

    Thanks for the review, but I have to say his bot mode just misses the mark. I actually really liked the deluxe Barricade mold we already have, actually.

    Its kinda odd that his mechtech weapon locks out and the other weapons with the other deluxes apperently don't.

    Wish he'd actually shown how the leg movement was hampered rather than just talking about it. I like the look of this guy, but hampered leg movement kinda worries me.

    I have to agree with what's been said previously, I want to see the transformation sequence in a Transformers review. The instant I saw the video jump from car to robot I quit watching.

    Over 8 and a half minutes and can't be bothered to show Transformation or comparison shots?

    Umm... nice to see new figures getting some screentime but I do wish you could be a bit more prepared when doing these videos. At least do a transformation (comparison) video like you did with the Sidearm Sideswipe, please. Until then, I'm gonna wait for Peaugh's review.

    I like Barricade .
    My only problem I see is the Claw should mount on the forearm not his shoulder .
    As stated in the review why have a claw that wont go past his hand .

    Overall great review! I like it when people who review figures actually say something other than "it's nice, I like it." (coughPeaughcough)

    However, I resent how many times it was mentioned that the reviewer doesn't like the movie-verse. Why do you have a pre-release figure if you don't like the line? I don't get it, but I enjoyed the review so I guess it doesn't really matter.
    That's cause he's actually, uh REVIEWING THE FIGURE. Also, for me a lot of fun of getting a new transformer is figuring out how it transforms. Why have it spoiled months in advance?

    As for Barricade himself, I really like how he looks and I will be getting him (he'll be my first Barricade since the 2007 one so I don't feel bad getting the same character again). The rake still looks dumb as hell though. However, I have a couple pre-release figures and mech-tech weapons are fun as hell to play with, even if they don't look good actually attached to the figure when being displayed.

    A TRANSFORMERS figure. A figure whose main gimmick is, well, the transformation?

    Then you are ruining the fun of getting the figure and transforming it for the first time. But it is up to you. For the last 2-3 years since Peaugh came around I watch the first few minutes of his videos right up to the Transformation and then skip right to the robot mode and his final thoughts on the figure, making sure I miss every part of the Transformation, as that is the biggest fun in getting the figures in hand for the first time.
