    Barricade was just taking a beating, that's it.

    Except he's never died in the first movie.

    Barricade was injured, but not killed. He'd recovered by the time Starscream ordered the 'Cons to mobilise, but when Bonecrusher attacked and was killed by Optimus, he presumably scampered and went into hiding.

    It may be helpfully instructive to point out that you might recall Lennox's own words regarding the tail of Skorponok which was separated in that same film in which Barricade was injured yet which had clearly healed and regrown by the time of the second film;

    SELF-REGENERATING MOLECULAR ARMOR, I believe it was.

    So, as mentioned above, he was injured but got better.

    There you go.

    I think you need to watch TF07 again! Firstly, following his fight with Bee, Barricade is shown laying in a heap, injured and twitching, but CLEARLY not dead. Secondly, as Meta777 stated, Barricade is later seen in the same movie! Again, clearly not dead!

    tm11176, I think you need to re-watch all three movies, and re-read all the comics online. Then re-read all the press releases, then re-watch all the interviews. When all that is said and done, when you have learned all there is to know about the movie-verse that has been released thus far, you will have my permission to post new threads.

    To paraphrase a certain awesome movie.

    Barricade regenerated ; he also regenerated after he was taken out by Ironhide on the highway, just before Bonecrisher battles Prime. You can read this in Reign of Starscream.

    Depends on where you are coming from. In the book he was killed by Prime shortly after Bonecrusher. Everywhere else he survived and recovered. I believe that you can see him die when Optimus gets his killionare in DotM.

    Barricade was killed by the NEST soldiers: A combination of bullets in his eyes, bombs in his legs and more bullets in his head.

    They never even showed the end of that fight. The movie focused on Sam, Mikayla and Frenzy while leaving the big interesting robot battle off-screen.

    He did not die. After he was beaten down by BB, he was heavily damage and at that point apparently unable to move his body, possibly entering a temporary stasis lock until one of his fellow Decepticons could help him out. He then appeared for about one whole minute altogether during the final fight with the Autobots in LA.

    This. Barricade was never killed after the fight. He's a tough con and besides, there was a clip of him driving when Starscream told the Decepticons to mobilize.

    He was wounded, but recovered. You see him driving to the battle, but that's about it. He was in the ROTF Prequel too.

    You remember wrong, since he was seen a few more times in vehicle mode after that before taking a powder.

    Exactly. In the movie we never see how Bumblebee is able to stop Barricade. We see the start of the fight but then the camera goes to Frenzy attempting to do something to Sam. By the time Mikaela saves the day for Sam the fight between Bumblebee and Barricade is over.

    For all we know Bumblebee could have just dropped several tons of building materials on Barricade or trapped him in some other way that would take a long time to get free. The film never gives an official answer to how Bumblebee stopped him without killing him.

    He probably shot him. Remember? Bumblebee came walking towards Sam and changed his gun back into his hand.
