A real piece of trash!
Ugh, the head is way off proportion, and it looks like an oversized Robot Hero. Pass, I'll only get Optimus, maybe Megs
WTF is an "absorbent" price? I don't think he meant it was cheap because he goes on to call the figure expensive. Maybe he meant "exhorbitant?"
It's only an illusion. I thought it was oversize too until I realized the pieces on both sides of the head are actually the windows hanging off the back. It doesn't look that bad to me... Certainly better than the old Action Masters.
I'll wait until I see it in person. Barricade and Prime were the two of these I was planning to get, anyway. I hate the way the front of the car twists and stretches for Barricade's robot mode, so I may stick with the transforming figure.
It's a price that absorbs the money from your wallet.
Hey rherk is there a way you can fix your site so you don't have to scroll left and right to read each sentence?
Archiving wouldn't be a bad idea, either. Do we really need every review ever done on ONE page?
What a shame, I was really looking forward to this line and the Barricade figure in particular (as well as Frenzy).
Just, it only just resembles Barricade...please tell me that he does not look like that.
I have seen Robo-Rep Barricade a few times in stores now. He really doesn't impress me and neither does Megatron. Bumblebee looked the best and I ended up picking him up, he also seems to be the best seller of the set.
Thanks for pointing out some of the flaws. I have made some alterations and fixed the gramatical error. Thanks
Nice review, but I need more pics , particularly side and back views... one of the things i love about unleashed BB is the beautifully detailed backside... almost looks better than the front imo.
Well, you have his feet backwards.
But that doesn't make him any less shitty. He'll only be a display counterpart for BB. Pending he can do the crouched posed he seems so fond of.
BB and Prime were all I was planning to get. (Megs looks sweet too, but they're just so pricey)
Yeah, I thought they may be but I couldn't get a clear pic on the package or anywhere else to show the correct way. But you are right. He is shitty regardless.
Seeing it in person, I can definetly agree with this review. They look incredibly cheap, and don't come with enough accessories or articulation.
Even Robot Replicas Frenzy comes with gun arms and a little insertable disc. Barricade should've had a little removable Frenzy.
I don't actually think he looks too bad there - I may change my mind when I see the fella up close and personal of course.
Off topic: Lovin' those new GI JOE figures too!
Damn, had to get this from page 4!
Very under-estimated. I love this guy, he`s poseable and really fun! Gotta love that spinning wheel thing!
A+ (could`ve been ++, but the size hurts him)
I saw him and passed, crap paint, could've been better articulation, and the accessory isn't even painted to match the part of the arm its supposed to be.
I did get bumblebee however and think its an ok figure, still crappy paint apps.
Uh...i think he's okay. Most panned him for being craptastic, I was one of them. But when I decided to bite the bullet and got him ('cos I have RR BB).
After taking him out of the box, he is actually not bad....
Barricade: "I am goona kiilaz u good!"
Bumblebee: "Oh shit..."
