    Hi there.

    First of all, excuse me for the bad pics. I take them in a hurry, later I will post better ones. Besides, the camera shows some flaws that I didn't notice, so I will fix them too.

    This is a repaint of the blue version of Barricade, with a pair of hands instead the ugly blocks he has at the end of their arms. I have painted everything except the blue windows and the faction symbols. I painted even the shields on the doors. I'm working in a weapon that will be stored below the car, too.

    Hope you like it.

    Thank you for your comments. I think you get a Prowl vibe from the car mode, because the bot has a skull or something, and is hunched, and looks evil. It is suppouse to be a police car, so it's a good disguise if it looks like Prowl, right?

    Yep. My prowl will have the legs turned around to look more like prowl. I am using the deluxe mold.

    Any one know where we can get balljoints small enough to give this guy elbows?

    And where'd you get the hands, they look great!

    The hands, as well as the fins and fingers for my Movie Legends Megatron, were donated by a Plasma Tech figure, the blue one. They have some LED's too, take a look: http://www.megabrands.com/en/kids/plasmaverse/plasmatech/index.php

    Regarding the elbows, I think there isn't space enough to add a ball joint, unless you want an elbow too close to the shoulder. As far as I know, Minicons have the smallest ball joints. If you can make it work, you will become my idol. Good luck.
