    So I think I've found fairly solid evidence that Barricade is in ROTF.

    Caution, spoilers from Alliance #4 below, so if you haven't read it and don't want to be spoiled, turn back.








    So part way through issue 4, the Autobots are hunting Cons all over the world. However, at one point, Ironhide tells Prime that Barricade got away again says he'll notify Bumblebee, who is with Sam. Here's the panel that it appears in.

    So I think we'll see Barricade once again hunting down Bumblebee and Sam, since this issue ends right as ROTF begins. So he's definitely alive at the start of the film.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks for scanning that page for us, neevnav.

    I for one hope to definitely see Barricade in ROTF in any shape or form. :)  He was awesome in the first one and I really hope he gets a chance to shine again in the next one.

    Even if we have to wait till TF3, I wouldn't mind seeing him again.

    Well since we really haven't seen much of his police car alt mode, my guess is he's either reformatted or scrapped early on in the movie.

    But hey, more Barricade is :thumb  with me!

    He's confirmed to be in ROTF, but... hear, hear. I hope he plays an important role in ROTF.

    Just curious, where was it confirmed? All I could find were the few pre-production photos of the Mustang on a trailer.

    And we may not have seen him during shooting if it was mostly second unit stuff, or if it was on one of the military bases. You've got to remember, we didn't see much of the Cons during shooting.

    I hope Barricade returns, and is voiced by Keith David. For the lines he hd in TF1, I think Jess Harnell was the better choice for just pure yelling at Sam, but the game tie-ins wowed me with Keith voicing Barricade. He made him really cunning and strategic. I'm assuming he'll have more of a recon role in ROTF, so I hope they bring David on board.

    They should definitely show Barricade. Even if it's just at the start of the film. And you see Optimus Prime standing there with his swords out, and then it pans down to a bunch of robot parts with the 'POLICE' logo on them.

    I really hope that Barricade ends up being that one 'pain in the ass' bot that keeps coming back bigger and badder each time, but is destined to fail all the times. Someone that just shows up at the worst times, or always tags along with the BIG villian at the time. Only to run away or survive somehow. Maybe he will last until the third sequel, and go out with a big bang.

    I'm sure some people will disagree.

    Definitely not proof, as the writers don't generally read the comics.

    I remember this too. That's some indication that he might appear, even if in a trivial manner.

    If it's recent, then it probably wasn't in time to work in a major character.
