    Went to Toys R Us tonight and stumbled upon the Barricade bicycle helmet. There are actually two. One being for youth and the other a child. The child has a high glossy finish and Barricade sits a little farther up in the back. Unfortunately, I couldn't pick up the child one. But here are some pics for the youth helmet.

    I still don't understand how they think these faces are marketable on all of the stuff they use them on.

    It's like having a Predator backpack or an Alien thermos.

    Saw those over the weekend. I figured people were seeing em all over the place. The one with the flames is the one I can't find.

    Just saw 'em today myself, paired up with the Optimus Prime bicycles. My wife wouldn't let me get either of them. And for good reason!

    I know those are supposed to be teeth, but he looks like he's puckering his lips in song.

    Barricade: "Les... pois... sons! Les possions! How ah love les poissons! Love to chop! and to serve little feesh!"

    As much as I love the movie designs, I have to agree with you there. These designs should be marketed to 10 year olds at the youngest.

    Barricade is voiced by a brotha so he be doing us some jazz, blues, soul or hippedy hop.

    Yeah, the barricade helmets were with the Bikes at my TRU. The bikes looked like they would be great fun if I was a kid or had some.

    Sorry I didn't post these earlier. I bought the Barricade one at TRU on June 2 with the rest of the movie toys. You're most likely to find the Prime version at WM.

    Ha! Yea, I'd have to agree with you on that one. They certainly dropped the ball in the face department. But come on...kids like hidious bug faces right?
    But I think I'm just as suprised that they put a Decepticon on a bike helmet. As if Barricade really cares about bike safety.

    Bonecrusher (who HATES head injuries) would have been a better choice.

    Thank you!

    I remember when I was 9 during the He-Man craze but before Transformers, my cousin and I always liked better the monsters over the heroic warriors. Our parents couldn't understand why.
