    i like the third pic,and the added height gives this figure good points,most of the DOTM figure have short legs whic makes them look like gorillas and the mod youve done to this figure makes it look more cooler =D.by the way does this one still transforms?

    I doubt it will transform since the legs are just too long for this mold.

    Looks awesome though! Gives it a more screen accurate look, I dislike DOTM barricade because of it's stumpiness!

    How did you get the bumper on his chest to twist like that? I'm trying to same on mine and it feels like they're about to break off when I try even the smallest bit. Or they try to yank the headlights down with them

    He looks kinda odd with long legs. They look unatural with such a short torso.

    I think he's referring to the pieces that are bent to either side of the flippable bumper. My guess, if this doesn't transform,it was modded, permanently in that position.

    actually, those are moded, you have to carve a bit on the inside of the pieces, but they do go back to their place in alt mode

    I tried putting the 07 legs on my DOTM fig too. It kills the transformation and they looked a bit too big to me, but in your pics it does look better.
    man no kidding about those lower chest panel joints being hidden. I had no idea. Unfortunately i cant get the right side on mine to move at all though.

    EDIT: loosened a screw and the panel swivels fine now. Thanks!

    Very nice and simple kitbash of Barricade!

    I happened to have the TFTM Premium Deluxe and DOTM Deluxe Barricades and just replaced the parts as mentioned, and loosened the screws on the front bumper pieces to angle them slightly. I also threw in the wheel mace weapon from Robot Replicas Barricade (though I had to widen the socket on the weaponized arm with a Dremel to make it fit DOTM Barricade's elbow ball joint).

    And voila, a much more screen accurate Barricade! The Human Alliance figure is still the definitive Barricade (that can transform without partsforming) but this guy is still all sorts of cool! Thanks for sharing the kitbash ideas!
