    Yep, that’s the one! That’d be perfect! I’d wondered about using the Bluestreak mold (instead of Prowl) and that custom definitely proves it would work amazingly well. I’d definitely buy one. :)

    I feel it should be pointed out that Takara is also busy creating non-Masterpiece Transformers on a pretty regular basis.

    Perhaps a rotating panel like Tracks' or Bumblebee's roof insignia.

    No familiarity with BC's clone, but perhaps there was no easy way to accommodate the light-bar? It's definitely going to require remoulding on Takara's part, perhaps a 3P company didn't think it was warranted.

    Looking at the roof section, I believe that a police light bar could've been feasible.

    Then perhaps their red repaint didn't sell as well as they'd hoped.


    I wonder how well Cordon is going to sell, this is a fairly expensive Diaclone repaint. Hope they go all out to make it worth it.

    One thing that I really love about Transformers is all of the different personalities (or at least potential of personalities, as many never got to flourish past the tech specs or universe profiles). One adds a new character to the G1 mythos. The other adds drones. Having a new character is incredibly more interesting, fiction wise, and the toy would represent that character.

    I always thought Badcube should've made a Headmaster add-on kit, to make Sunsurge like the IDW Sunstreaker. :D

    Barricade just came out in Japan, and they're working on getting Dinobot out there. Ironhide's on his way as well.

    The more cop bots, the better. Two of my family members are NY auxiliary police, two family friends are NYPD, and a good friend of mine is a Pennsylvania state trooper. I also did a 6 month stint with Military Police units (USAF Security Forces Squadron) in the past.

    Transformers with police decos tend to look really sharp (I just bought Transformers Million Publishing exclusive Go-Shooter not too long ago, and MPM-5 Barricade is my favorite MPM figure to date). The steep price tag on MP-42 Cordon kinda sucks but Amazon.co.jp should have this guy for a bit cheaper, at least.

    I would too if only to display Barricade in both bot and alt modes. :D  The Nissan Datsun Fairlady mold looks really sharp in all black with a bit of white on the doors.

    Hey man, there's a Hong Kong 3rd Party Transformers fan page on Facebook passing your Photoshop job off as "official pics"! Haha

    They seem to be joking about it, tongue in cheek, but everyone likes it a lot!

    Give me the hand cannon, a different face, and throw Chip in the garbage (I sold all of my human figures).
    I don't think I could resist him then.

    I think I would like the police deco of this more. We'll see.
    Reason being I already have a red Lamborghini (Sideswipe) and a yellow (BC Sunstreaker). Having the police deco would give me more variety.

    Also planning on one of the cream/white Breakdowns as well.
