    This is all Hasbro had to do. Give the old Barricade mold a ball joint neck. Right now I just have the new DOTM Barricade head sitting on the Premium Barricade. Once I figure out a way to attach it to the figure without affecting transformation I will go ahead with the mod.

    So one DOTM Barricade was sacrificed so that Lockdown can have 2 hands and Premium Barricade can have a new head. RIP DOTM Barricade.

    That looks sick! I hate DOTM Barry's legs.

    Curious, can you drill a peg hole in the neck base and then basically leave the head on the ball joint, which in bot mode is pegged into the hole you drilled and then for transformation, you could simply un-peg the ball joint with the head on it and and set it aside?

    I guess but I want it to transform without unpegging the head.

    I was just wondering if we can use DOTM Barry's hands on the old mold as well...I hate the original's hands with fervent passion.

    If I get a junker TFTM Barricade, I will experiment on that. I just don't want to mess up my Premium.

    I think if you dremel out the TFTM hands, I think the DOTM hands could fit.

    That head mod looks great, Solrac! Coincidence that I do have a TFTM Premium Barricade and an extra DOTM Deluxe Barry laying around. I might give the head mod (and maybe the arms/hands somehow) a try and frankenstein together a more screen accurate Barry, even if a little partsforming is involved. =)

    Looks great. Hope you're able to figure out how to peg in the head so you don't have to pop it out in order to transform Barricade.

    3 years later....

    Just noticed that I never posted an update with the head swap. Anyway, I cut the original TFTM head off so that I can still use the hinge for transformation and used the DOTM neck joint and shaved as much as I could off and then glued the two pieces together. I JUST transformed it today to see if there is clearance and just barely. Have to turn the head 180 to slide under the windshield into car mode and everything around it is a tight fit for car mode. But it worked. WOO!
