    When was Impactor ever an Autobot again?

    Impactor (G1) - Transformers Wiki

    ^ Pretty sure the wiki is an accurate source as to his allegiance. As far as can be seen, he was never a Decepticon.

    Awesome. I’ve been hoping we’d get a G1-style Generations police car Barricade. He’s become such an iconic character, I’m suprised it took them this long to actually do it.

    That's probably an error then.

    It's probably not since every previous toy of him also had him as an Autobot.

    Just an error of making him a Decepticon for the fan vote. They should have chosen someone else for the decepticon spot.

    Oh, I thought you said that the wiki made an error. Guess there was a miscommunication.

    Just doesn't make sense to make the winner an all Autobot choice when it was meant to be a vote for Autobot and Decepticon.

    He is indeed a Decepticon in this, but from memory, the fan vote bio kind of implied that he might become an Autobot in future.

    I get the impression that this toyline is supposed to represent the very early days of the war, so I guess not everyone has settled into their regular roles yet.

    It kind of makes sense. I mean, Impactor was a close friend of pre-war Megatron in the IDW comics. And given his personality, it fits that he may have initially been a trigger-happy, war-mongering Decepticon.

    Still a bit of a strange choice on Hasbro's part though. I can see more than a few fans going out and buying Autobot stickers to put over his Decepticon faction symbol.

    I suppose Impactor being a Decepticon turncoat makes sense. His personality does seem like it's plausible for him if his backstory were further fleshed out. It just seems a tad odd for Hasbro to make him a Decepticon option in the poll when his traditional portrayal is as an Autobot and also to make figures of turncoats from a time prior to when they defected to their current faction.

    On that note, I think we need more Autobot turncoats who defected to the Decepticons. Nearly every turncoat I've seen are Decepticon defectors to the Autobots. It's getting rather boring after a while. Having more bots betray the Autobots to join the Decepticons adds more nuance and complexity to the war and suggests that the Autobots may not necessarily be the faction that everyone should want to be on. I may even say that having more Autobot turncoats is nearly as necessary as having more female Transformers.

    He's a Wrecker. And not only is he a Wrecker, he's probably the Wreckerest Wrecker. So that's basically a Decepticon Light.

    That'd be quite the error.

    Actually, speaking of errors, a thought occurs...What if this Barricade listing is actually for the rumored(EDIT: No, sorry, confirmed.) Studio Series Deluxe, and they listed it as Siege by mistake?

    The whole point of a decepticon Impactor in siege is for a future story arch I guess. At toy fair the brand team said Impactor is a Con in the siege arch and paired up with Mirage for the whole story point of mirage having to go behind Enemy lines to convince Impactor to flip sides and join the Autobot cause.

    It could be although the studio series barricade isn't a rumor.

    Eh, take it with a grain of salt. It's probably a Siege figure of some sort for sure.

    Why Amazon isn't straight up normal with the naming scheme is just weird.

    One example- Cyberverse Ultra class Shockwave is still called Kramer and isn't searchable by entering "cyberverse ultra class shockwave". Why they haven't changed it is beyond me. Like they don't want casual fans to be able to buy certain toys unless you know the secret handshake or something. :confused:  Or they are just flat out lazy and forgot to change the secret names.
