    Just thinking about Toysrus closure. What's going to happen with Future MPMs? What's going to happen to Barricade now?

    Unknown. Has it actually been confirmed that TRU is closing? I plan on using banked rewards tomorrow and probably getting Barricade online.

    I could forgive most of the problems if the alt mode was really nice and accurate.

    As it stands he's a super flashy transformation that doesn't actually accomplish a heck of a lot for either mode.

    This is what I like to hear. :D  Pretty damn jazzed. Might pick up a Takara MPM Bee off HLJ while I'm at it just so Barricade has someone to square off against.

    I don't actually have him in person, but thats because after seeing what everyone has said, I can't see myself spending that much on something that has a few details that I personally dislike. I'm pretty much a professional at looking at reviews and pictures and deciding whether or not I'll enjoy a figure before I actually buy it.:lol 

    He's had almost overwhelmingly positive reviews and I'm sure he's a great figure but there are a few things that just really throw me off about him. His head sits far too recessed, his shoulders sit too high on his torso, his legs and feet look really blocky from some angles, and his knee placement is just pretty damn bad imo. Oh and the awkward waist swivel is awkward. I know most of those are due to his slick transformation, but it just really bothers me. And the car mode looks almost cartoon since the shapes are slightly off. A lamborghini isn't an easy shape to pull off, but after seeing Tfevo's Hot Fire, I'm inclined to just wait and see their upcoming Lockdown.

    This is one of the best and shortest descriptions I've heard for the figure yet haha

    I feel like I'm hearing a broken record regarding Peru Kill.

    Agreed, I thought this was the MPM Barricade thread.

    :cry ............

    Anyways, the quality on Barry is amazing. It's been awhile since I held an official figure with this much heft! And the plastic feels very nice! Probably going to have to buy another!

    Are Wal-Mart and Amazon the actual sellers, or is a third-party vendor selling them on the sites?

    They were the actual sellers (also walmart.com it's just from them).


    Unfortunely they're out of stock now (they were around 80-85$usd).

    Conversation goes where conversation goes. Not like most of us even have Barry. :D 

    Huh, wouldn't think Walmart would get these in. You wouldn't happen to have a link to the product page by chance? When I search I only get third party sellers. (probably because Walmart's listing is out of stock)

    Still can't see the seller. I checked the site too and there's nothing but third-party vendors. Still though, I am surprised to see such a vast array of masterpiece transformers on Wal-Mart.com.

    Yeah it never even occurred to me he'd be talking about a non-US Walmart.com. My bad.

    Got a little excited there for a sec.

    So I went to the TRU that I used to work at to see the status of Barricade since he should be arriving this month or early next month. Nothing. What's more concerning is that the DC doesn't have any orders for him.
