    Warpath looks really good. I really like how they incorporated the chest cannon without having it stick out too far. I'm curious to see if we'll be getting any more soldier/tank Autobots for the create-a-bot multiplayer option. Barricade isn't bad looking, but he's definitely not one of the best WfC designs. I'd love to see this Warpath design get made as a toy, but at the same time I don't think it's very likely. I think we'll be luck to get any more than the one's we already know about.

    Warpath looks good and recognizable, but Barricade looks like genero-con. I have no idea who he's even supposed to look like.

    I don't like Barricade at all. Warpath is one of my favorites so far.

    I suppose he's supposed to be an amalgam of G1 Barricade and movie Barricade, which is what he looks like.

    Not to me he doesn't - then again, the G1 fig is fairly generic already. I don't see movie Barricade in there anywhere.

    If anything he looks like that protoform optimus from the first movie (in the torso mostly).

    I love the Warpath design, his G1-style head looks great. For the most part, the WFC team nailed the character appearances. I think the Tron influences work really well with the G1-type look.

    I'd have to agree. His character design is so ambiguous you could easily tag just about any obscure name to him and he could be that character.
    For awhile we had a few people who were thinking he was Astrotrain.

    Yeah, I really wish they had tried harder on Barricade's design. He just looks like an afterthought.

    warpath is cool, though he wont be bragging about or polishing that gun barrel any time soon.

    i like sideswipe. looks a lot like lightspeed the technobot. not bad thing. he was already a cybertronian sports car so it makes sense.

    barricade looks more like a random enemy theyd repaint over and over for you to kill. not bad but not much of anything else either.

    this one really exemplifies what i overall strongly dislike about the aesthetic they've chosen for WFC ~ the proportions take a character who's usually very lean and sleek and just make him look dumpy and awkward. Short arms, boxy torso, yuck. (and the pose is only exacerbating things...)
