    Hey all,

    Do you think Prowl will be in ROTF since Barricade is no longer a police
    cruiser?.I mean seeing that Audi R8 is so Barricade-ish I think its him.
    And I know Hasbro has done just about every line with him,G1,G2,BW
    and so forth,so I think its pretty good odds that he will be in ROTF as a
    police car,does anyone else think so?

    2 things:
    1) i still believe Barricade is a police car
    2) i think he should be the chinese poile car seen way back when.

    it would make sense, as hunting the Audi-bot is supposedly Springer and a team. the team should be Hound and Prowl. then, later in the movie, Prowl, being a mostly white police car, would fight Barricade, a mostly black police car. the opportunity is too good to pass up.

    ...

    so chances are it wont happen =[ maybe have Barricade survive and feature that fight in TF3?

    Considering Prowl is one of the most used TF Hasbro trademarks, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a Prowl who had nothing to do with police or Barricade.

    Why do Prowl HAVE to be a police car? He can be in cybertron form, he can be a chopper. This is movie universe.

    thats like asking why Prime needs to be a big truck. its iconic-Prowl has always been a Police vehicle.


    and what could be cooler than 2 very different looking police car robots kickin the slag out of eachother?

    To be honest, I can't really see a police car Prowl showing up any time soon, and certainly not in RotF. Barricade was one of the most prominently featured bots in the first movie before his sudden disappearance; suddenly bringing in another police car bot on the other faction would just be unnecessarily confusing to the general audience, even if (or perhaps especially if) Barricade is still around in a new form. Honestly, it just seems more trouble than it's worth...

    He could even be one of those Police Choppers we've seen in Bethelem.

    I agree 100%

    I don't want the Audi R8 to be Barricade because he's a police car. I'd rather the Audi R8 be one of 5 Stunticons

    I would think if the Autobots/ Military knew he was out there and he was a cop car he would stop being a cop car.

    I really want to see a showdown between the two police car bots.

    I'm still not convinced the Audi is Barricade. I don't care how superficial the similarities are between Barricade and the Audi toy.

    If Barricade (police car) and Prowl (police car) fought it would be:rock .

    I hate to say this but Barricade is the Audi R8 and has no police emblems or whatever
    on him,just like bumblebee in the first movie,they can scan new designs all they want
    to change there alt mode,hence the audi r8 design.Now even tho most of yall say its
    not barricade then why would they give the double back fins and wheels on his
    hands if it was say Wildrider Stuntacon.

    So I say they probably decided to change his design so that Prowl could be put
    in the movie as his general self a police car.And even tho theres a slight chance
    Prowl will be in the movie,then why would they give Barricade a new design?.

    Also someone said its Springer,I am 10000000% sure that Springer is not gonna
    be an Audi R8 when all the rumors say he's the Osprey.Plus with 40 robots in the
    movie his chances of being in it are pretty good.So I say we'll see June 26th for
    sure won't we?

    Isn't our only source of Barricade being the R8 just leaked pics or CGI model and toy with superficial shared characteristics? Let's not go around claiming it as fact just yet.

    prowl needs to be in rotf. Arcee, wheeljack and prowl were ment to be in #1 but were cut. If arcees back in, why not prowl and wheeljack. They've both been rumoured both having rumoured alt vehicles that look very similar to previous forms.

    Prowl is too good to not put in rotf.
    Also there is a slight possibility prowl will have a chinese accent as he is a chinese police car, i think that would be interesting bringing different nationalities into the voices like they did with Jazz

    I would love to see Prowl in the movie but it's looking more and more likely he won't be in it :(
