    hey everyone knows about barricade's disappearance from the movies, right?

    Well what if that cop, in the freeway scene, was just an ordinary cop trying to arrest/ pull over bonecrusher for flipping over cars and stuff. Them Sam's assumption would be wrong and bumblebee would have killed him back at the power plant.

    what do you think?

    The only problem with that is when Frenzy told the others the locations of both Megatron and the Allspark, Barricade was shown receiving the transmission, and with Brawl and Bonecrusher.

    I think it's just too much of a stretch to assume.

    He probably fled after seeing Bonecrusher get decapitated. If not that, then.... I dunno.

    I would laugh. Because that's what I always loved about Transformers. Disguises that work both ways, like when Inferno picked up the fire cheif's car in G1 thinking it was Red Alert.

    Maybe Barricade saw what happened to Bonecrusher and was like "fuck that!" and ran off.

    Maybe he'll be back in the third one revealed as Shockwave's double-agent.

    Once Barricade saw that Megatron was losing it, and with the fall of Bonecrusher, he left the battle to report in to his true master.
    In the books, he was never overly loyal, and didn't like Starscream. So, it would almost make sense that he answered to someone more 'in control' of the situation.

    I just watched that the other day! I think it was Iron Hide that picked up the fire cheif's car though. How wealthy is that town, BTW? Their fire chief rolls in a Lambo! Talk about misappropriation of taxes!
    Quite plausible. Decepticons do have a tendancy towards cowardice.

    Barricade was killed off camera by Optimus Prime in the first movie right after Bonecrusher. He will never be back

    Comic book info does not always apply to the films.

    I believe the comic book was just trying to fill the plot hole left by the film. Personally, I wouldn't take it as 'for fact'.

    Personally, of he doesn't show up in TF3, I'm gonna resort back to a line Optimus said in ROTF, the scene where Optimus does the report on the Shanghai attack - "Our alliance has counter-measured six Decepticon incursions over the last two years..."

    My guess is Barricade was among them.

    Couldn't have been a normal cop in the highway chase since its Nevada. I don't think they use the same cars for their officers.
