    Can anyone who was at Botcon speak of his accuracy? Headsculpt, wheelhands, Frenzy, all that. Is he a "Masterpiece" Barricade like HA Bumblebee is to his character? Weapons, if any?

    I'm sorry guys, but he's my most anticipated ROTF figure so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated. And yes, I know pics will be shown at SDCC.

    He looked pretty good when I saw him. Can't say there was anything obviously off in the design, though I honestly cannot remember the specifics off hand. Frenzy is meant to have double guns, though, which might be an indicator of accuracy, and I don't think he has his interrogation probes.

    was his chest the compacted, angular design from the movie, or standard car chest like the deluxe?

    thats what I'm most concerned about. it would be pretty easy to pull off correctly if frenzy doesnt come out of his chest, but you never know.

    I'm really most excited about HA Barricade and Leader Starscream then any other toys in the movie line, and probably Leader Prime just because it's prime.

    Do you remember if his car chest is a block or is it broken up as to be more accurate?

    Yeah, I've been looking forward to him.

    I WANT to say, based on bad memory, that the chest breaks up a bit to be more movie accurate. But I can't remember how. I just remember thinking it looked a lot more like him. Pretty sure it's not a 'block' like his deluxe toy, I just can't remember how far those details go.

    The fact both Barricade and Frenzy didn't show up in ROTF (to my knowledge, anyways) and yet they're the ONLY Decepticons who are getting HA figures (compared to like, what? 20-30 other Cons?) makes me want them bad. I don't care if it's close to the original Barricade Deluxe, as long as it's got better articulation and a bad-ass Saleen Mustang mode, I'll be happy. I'll be estatic if Hasbro gives Frenzy an udocumented ability to litteraly flip the bird out the passenger-side window (obviously that can't be marketed to kids, but if he has enough articulation in one of his hands to do that, it'll be one awesome figure).

    I've been wondering, if maybe, HA Ironhide was just one big rumor. Or was it actually confirmed by Hasblow? If it was can anyone provide proof ?


    And yeah, I can't wait to see Barricade. Leader Starscream and HA Barricade cannot get here fast enough.

    lol it took me awhile to figure out what HA Barricade was. I'm rather confused, like someone else said... why develop a figure for a character that isn't in the movie?

    b/c he was very improtant in the first movie and would make hasbro some more $$$$......and so many fans would definitely buy him...esp. with a good articulated frenzy

    The only weapon he used in the first movie was a spiked club/mace thing.

    Wouldn't a HA Barricade just have Frenzy as the Human figure that sits in the drivers seat? That way Barricade can be accurate without compromises.

    I'm excited for all the HA sets, but definately looking foward to Barricade and Frenzy. Any inprovement over the Deluxe is welcome. Not that there was anything wrong with it.

    But, I do hope to see ,more Human Alliance sets. What about Blackout and Starscream with the Holographic Pilots? Heck, include another version of Scorponok with Blackout. That there is a must have, for me. And Ironhide/Lennox is a given, Hasbro must make that. IMO. Or even Mudflap/Simmons, if they go and do Mudflap and Leo. I'd have to buy all I can, then set them all on fire. NO LEO IN TF3, OR MORE LEO PERIOD. Sorry, can't stand that character. And I know it never happened in the movie, but, why not a Sideways with both robot and human Alice?.?.? Hasbro is doing Sideswipe and Epps, and I'd don't remember them even looking at one another in the film?.?.?
