Barricade + Frenzy
Images mirrored by TFW2005 - Super_Megatron
We need robot pic's dang it
Still, Barricade is pure love.
Oh, Frenzy is with Barricade BTW
ooo, in color. and ROBOT MODE!
niiice, I think I like them
Ah now it's loading, for some reason I wasn't seeing the bot pic's.
Have to say despite a killer vehicle mode I expected a much better bot mode. Looks like he was horribly mutilated in a lab experiment gone wrong or something.
Come on robot modes!
These are beautiful.
We're talking Alternator-esque in car mode here!
And Barricade has Frenzy too, who transforms!
YES! I've been waiting for some time to see some idea of what Barricade will look like. He looks gorgeous, in a murderous alien robot kind of way. I like his Bludgeon-esque head (not quite samurai helmet, but resembles one). I have high hopes for his actual movie design.
Brawl looks like a twist on the typical tank design with the chest angled downward and an overall bulkier build. Bumblebee looks pretty interesting as a simpler version of his movie design.
So that silly little thing that comes with Barricade is Frenzy? I couldn't quite tell as he doesn't look like he turns into a boombox. He looks more like he turns into a car part of some sort.
Horrible, especially Barriade. I've seen better designed mini-cons and Bumblebee's feet look like they're about to snap off. Brawls arms/hands look like they were burned in an accident or something.
Pass for all three.
Added pics to the top
First those gorgeous CG pics and now these? I DUB TODAY AWESOME MONDAY.
Toywise, however, the only one that really excites me is Barricade. Bumblebee might be good if hes a basic, however, he looks pretty weak for a delux. Brawl doesn't look that good at all - like Armada Megatron, except done wrong.
well they look more like transformers now that we've seen some toy pictures. still curious to see how optimus and megatron come off. but im still hoping that these are slighty mistransformed. cept they look pretty right.....but o so wrong.......
Barricade isnt impressing me at all, of course, there's a damn good chance it's mistransformed since we don't know what the robot mode is supposed to look like yet.
Brawl is f'ing sweet. mistransformed or not. awesome.
Bumblebee is pretty cool. also likely mistransformed, and could look far better once transformed correctly.
and thus the age of "show accurate" transformers comes to a screeching halt.
Hasbro has out done themselves.
I need to change underpants
Bleh, they look like an unholy union between the BM vehicons and SWTFs.
Digging Bumblebee and Brawl a lot more then Barricade, there neat, but still not as good as I imagined or had hoped.
Either they discovered some problems, or the accountants came in - Bumblebee had clear blue plastic windows in the test shot we saw earlier. They probably figured the amount of yellow paint required to cover the clear blue parts would have been rather pricey.
Bumblebee would almost look good if not for those terribly tacky painted windows. (i thought we saw a translucent canopy on the proto.
Barricade looks fabulous in car mode and like utter crap in robot mode ~ hope his chest is a bit mis-transformed there. and Frenzy's just beyond terrible...
Brawl, just yuck.
Expectations beginning to lower....
So what does Frenzy turn into, the car engine?
Bumblebee isn't half bad! He has two missle launchers. G1 bumblebee didn't even have a gun.
Brawl does seem a bit top heavy.
Nice to finally see the bot modes. Barricade seems woefully simplistic. Looks like his arms are almost the entire sides of the vehicle mode. I plan to kitbash a Barricade into a new character of my own, but those arms will need some serious alterations.
