    OK I really like this toy. Got it from BBTS last night and am impressed. It looks much better than the pics we saw before. It just has to be transformed properly....imagine that.

    Transformation is really close to the deluxe version. A few more little steps added and that's it. Like Bumblebee he has a weapon for one of his hands. The left hand is a "spinning blade" that pops out when you press the gas cap on the car. Frenzy can ride in the car or under the hood ala the deluxe version. He is as big as HA Bumblebee.

    I'll try to post some pics soon.

    edit: my picture skill is severly lacking but, here you go. No pics of the car.

    He really doesn't have much of a backpack


    Edit: Alt mode pics on page 6

    Considering all we have thus far are stock photos, could any of you who bought the toy from BBTS take photos?

    Huh, if he's better than the official pics have made him out to be, then I might give him a shot.

    Please upload some pics mate! :) 

    I'll get him for sure, the HA line is just too impressive not to.
    With that awesome alt mode, a good representation of Frenzy and the fact that it's Barricade, I think I'm going to love him even if he's not overly complicated.

    I don't really like the ugly brown plastic, but I like how the kibble folds up, and the robot mode looks pretty cool and articulate. Looks like this toy is one that would be fun in-hand.

    Yes the chest deforms. I haven't found a great way to do it yet but, it does.

    THANKS SO MUCH!!!

    I was eagerly awaiting some non-official pics. He's definitely not as bad as he looked in the official photos..although on the other hand, not nearly as good as Skids and Bumblebee, either..

    So is that plastic really brown or is it another case of lighting issue? I remember HA Skids has some brown plastic on the inside as well, but that's almost grey and turns brown in yellow light.

    It is a greyish with a slight brown hue in light.

    Looks good. Haven't had a HA figure that I haven't liked, even though Sideswipe bushed it a little bit. Can't wait to find him at retail.

    You just made my day! The toy actually looks worth having now.


    I had one on preorder that I had been seriously considering canceling after those first photos surfaced. Then out of nowhere my order shipped. (we always get pictures before the toys go to market. I was really surprised.)

    It gets here monday, and now I'm actually looking forward to it!

    I need to see a video of this guy. Outside the head sculpt I can't get into him like I could for the other HA figures. He just looks...so deformed and ugly for lack of better descriptors.

    Frenzy is like the other HA humans. Tiny and hard to stand. He can lay flat in the "chest" of Barricade and man guns that flip out.

    Here he is with the other HA figs. Don't mind the second rate photography, I don't have a lightbox.

    I was looking forward to this being my first HA figure. After seeing how he looks, I think I will pass.

    Looks like a fairly decent figure to me.
    I still think people hold that HA Bee far too highly. I find this Barricade to be pretty on par. IMO

    Does he have any kind of head gimmick like the other HA figures?

    So where does he stand on the list? Above Skids/Sideswipe, or below?
