    Tj Maxx is stocking HAs on the cheap, and after picking up Jazz, I want em all. Queestion being, which ones the better deal at 20 bucks, Barricade, the pretty good one, or Sideswipe, who with a mod or two looks really cool. I'm not incredibly partial to either, but I am digging the Voyager autobot Car scale.


    Or I could ring another twenty out of my budget to get Both. Still quite the discount. What do you suggest?

    Of the two Barricade is the best. Sideswipe is cool, but......

    I bought both of them for $30 each. I'd say if you have the money, they're worth it. You'd be able to get something else with the money you saved over me as well :wink:

    Barricade no doubt. That said, I got my Sideswipe from BBTS for $15, great toy.
    Both.

    Barricade FTW. I passed on human alliance for sooooo long and was doing good. I didn't need out of scale characters I already had was my line of thinking. But when Barricade came out, I had to get him. Cuz it was probably the only new Barricade we are gonna get. He sold me on the line, now I have all but Mudflap. Sideswipe isn't that bad after the mods, but barricade is way better.

    Sideswipe's robot mode is pretty lacking....like they made one too many sacrifices to make it compatible with a figure.

    That said, if you're going by HA Jazz standards, Barricade isn't that fantastic either.

    Still,i think 20.00 for Barricade is a better deal than 20 for Sideswipe... you shouldn't have much trouble finding the later for that price in the near future.

    barricade

    as pointed out in various threads. HA sideswipe isn't that great of a figure. for me it's not that great due to it lacking some key articulated joints

    Barricade by a long shot. The Frenzy he comes with is pretty damn cool on it's own too. Good scale with deluxes.

    I don't even display Sideswipe with the other HAs. He'll be stored away in alt mode for a long, long time.

    I'd say both, except that I had the same opportunity and only got Barricade, so I guess I'll vote for that. I think Sideswipe looks cool, just can't get over all of the bad reviews that I've read/heard.

    Barricade, but he needs someone to fight; so get both.
