    He hasn't been officially confirmed as dead has he? Plus why haven't we even gotten a drone of him? I would be happt to see a Barricade drone run past in DOTM.

    We've gotten a drone of every single fallen Decepticon but not one of barricade so what the heck the this mean? It's just kinda annoying that they won't even address this issue ¬_¬

    How much does it bother me? On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being "having annoyingly dry hands" and 10 being "a strange cat urinating on my shoes while I can't find my glasses in an unknown town", I'm at about a 1.3.

    Resolution to his character in the films would be great, but I won't lose sleep over it.

    I'm glad he's not there. Leave it open for imagination. It's like his absence was made for fanfic.

    I am kinda annoyed that they haven't put in a small scene where he finally gets killed.

    They gave a send-off for Scorponok in ROTF, so I don't know why they can't do something like that for Barricade.

    This, I'd like confirmation, but mostly, just some more Barricadey goodness, he had a LOT of potential (along with Brawl, my favorite :cry )

    It doesn't.

    It'd be cool if he came back as the leader of the Dreads or something. Their functions and alternate forms remind me a lot of him.

    Annoys me quite a tad. It just makes me feel like they couldn't be bothered to deal with their fate so that they could focus on shoving as many different robots as they could in our faces to sell more and more toys.

    My favourite, but I don't expect to see him to be honest...

    It annoyed be quite a bit when I didn't see him in ROTF. You have to admit that his presence in the freeway scene, in TF1, was kinda like wtf.

    The con just took a different route never to bee seen again in the film, or films. At first I thought Barricade was excluded because Bay/Co. didn't couldn't portray the law enforcement in a negative way.
    But this all changed when I noticed what the alt-modes to the Dreads are.

    I only ask for one last battle, that's it, he doesn't even need lines.

    It bothers me alot. All the other Cons were given enough screen time and an awesome death. Barricade, on the other hand, won't show even for something stupid(like drone re-usage).
    This is just like Buckbeak from the Harry Potter films. The Hippogriff may not have been very important but I was really forward to the scene where he beats the shit out of Snape in "The Half-blood Prince". I was so pissed and that movie sucked major balls.

    I can see why Jolt is cut from DOTM but for Bay to completely dismiss Barricade's existence films is just very irriatating. The Cop became a fan-fav and he was also more of main character for TF1 than Starscream was! There are plenty of reasons why a fan should be pissed about the abscense of this great character!
    It should be noted that a Decepticon strikingly similar to Barricade has appeared in the DOTM Comic Adaptation. I don't think that is a spoiler since I can't confirm much on it...

    Its a crime for the awesomeness known as Barricade to not reappear, but I don't think he will.
    We could Hold Out FOR TF4,
    like I said Bay likes him enough to leave him alive but not enough to put him back in
    A DOTM game appearance would be AWESOME

    Doesn't bother me. He's my favorite movie Decepticon, so at least he doesn't get killed off in some lame way, and it leaves room for him to appear in future movie-verse media. Plus we keep getting toys of him, which is good.

    A while back, there was a lot of speculation that RotF Sideways was supposed to be Barricade at one point. When you look at them comparatively, there are a lot of similarities.

    Part of me wishes Sideways had been Barricade. It could have put an end to all the mystique, plus I wouldn't mind if he got cut in half by Sideswipe.
