    Does anyone else agree that with such a brief stint in this movie they would have preferred to see sidways replaced with barricade so those of us who didnt read the comics could get some closure on the most bad ass copformer ever??

    No because then Barricade would have died

    Sideways and Demolisher were only in it to show off NEST and how it worked

    Even though I would have liked to have seen Bumblebee taken him out (or Prowl, even), yeah, it wouldn't have made a difference to me is Sideways was Barricade or not. It would have tied off the loose end, saved the money on a model used for about five seconds, among other things. The only good thing to come from Sideways was his awesome game appearance.

    Yes. Show up, do nothing, die. Wraps up his story. No more wild rants.

    honestly, what disguise would it be if one US Saleen police car is in China?
    Unless u guys meant that Barricade scanned an Audi R8.

    That's what a lot of people thought before anyone knew sideways was sideways. I hope barricade makes a TF3 comeback though

    I don't think so. This allows for a cop to cop showdown in case Prowl shows up in TF3

    its obvious

    If barricade had sideways' role in rotf, it probably would've never changed anything at all. But they had to do that...




    ... TO SELL TOYS. :lolol

    No, not if he was in it just to die.

    It would have been great for story purposes, but remember this movie is also a toy commercial and that played a part in that too.

    Folks:

    I think that Sideways should have been Sideways, instead of just "Ooh slice!" He could be a fun character. Maybe we'll get him in a cartoon.

    Imagine the out(nerd)rage the Barricade fans would have if one of the key players of the first movie survived it, only to be ginzu'd in the first 5 mins of the second movie. No thanks, there are already too many rants as it is...
