    Regarding MPM Barricade, I did find this on Baidu after some casual searching:

    dc6759c2d5628535955057289bef76c6a7ef633a.jpg

    The seam lines don't match any Barricade figure released yet, I don't believe.

    I do not know who will be part of the image leaked to the Internet, but its back will have a tire, and the window will be transformed as part of the back

    And BTW, that seam lines up PERFECTLY with the door panel on his CGI model, and you are correct, no previous barricade has replicated this.

    MPM-05's got no mercy on the wallet. Looks like it's a definitive punish and enslave based on that Baidu leak above.

    HA Barricade was excellent based on what I've seen, but don't forget the dude's one-handed. We need a MPM-05 to offset that cardinal sin

    I'm a patient and understanding noodle, but I must comment that this seam line:

    reminds me of this:

    And that's perfectly fine. Because the onscreen counterpart never utilized his entire doors (at least not morphed) in his design

    That would suck, because the tires go on very specific places, the shoulders and hands.

    They not only matched the shape perfectly, it looks like they got the entire POLICE sign in too! (^o^)

    Is there a thread for this?

    First pic of vehicle mode leaked via Baidu:

    dc6759c2d5628535955057289bef76c6a7ef633a.jpg

    Note that the lines match up perfectly with the CGI model and they even managed to fit in the entire POLICE sign.

    And before someone says it, no, there are no other barricade figures with this particular seam line. I checked.

    Ah, I remember the days when the Movie TFs had clearly identifiable kibble on their models.

    @eltonlin98, if only I saw your post a second later... I really should have named the thread "First Look at MPM Barricade?". (^.^')

    My biggest curiosity is how they're gonna pull off his "goddamnit it's a goddamn Monday" front grill/headlights look. I thought the HA's idea to make the glass piece and the bulbs as separate parts was INGENIOUS. Oh, and of course how they're gonna implement Frenzy. Lil silver guy needs his time in the limelight too, he was the TF assassin predecessor to Laserbeak

    Dude I literally have no idea where I'm gonna photoshoot this guy (recap, Prime got one at BK, and BB got one at my campus). A police cars of all things, too!

    LOL if you really do want to keep the tradition going, we could summon a mod or sumfin

    EXTRA NOTE: Posts have been bumped due to thread lane-merging. There is a link for an album dedicated to Barricade and a YouTube video on all his movie appearances if you look on the next page of this thread //
