    CAR MODE

    Best deluxe car ever, the detailing on this Saleen is fantastic.

    TRANSFORMATION

    Nothing too unusual, fairly easy. Swing out sides of the car to form the arms, Split the rear end and connect the waist under the car, fold down down, split the hood in half, flip up the head, eject Frenzy from the chest (no spring action here) if you wish and unfold it and you're done.

    ROBOT MODE

    Looks very nice, the arms are spectacular (especially the hands - 3 fingers and one moveable thumb), gimmick is okay (left arm extends when you push a button), but the main thing is, Barricade is a pain in the ass to pose. It's top heavy and the legs cannot be straight, ankle joints are a bit loose. Head doesn't turn either. A bit of a let down in robot mode, but I've seen worse.

    I see what you mean about the legs. Is the head all attached, or is there a screw?

    Man that blows if the head can't turn. Are you sure you're twisting it hard enough?

    i don't like this figure too much, the arms look akward to me and the legs are too skiny and it looks like he has no midsection, like his hips mergre right into his chest, it just doesn't look right to me, and no turning head? probably just a prototype figure cuz when has hasbro ever released a figure whos head couldnt' turn? i'm actually excited to see good pics of jazz and more of blackout.

    It's going to take some time for me to get used to the look of the bot, but that's one fine looking alt mode right there. Thanks for the advance pics.

    Sweet, looks like he got to bend down instead of standing straight.

    Head is black and gold and made of rubber (the front half). The way it works, I don't think it's possible to mod it to make it turn. It's bolted there permanently.

    It's the finished product, it was MOSC. Cybertron Downshit couldn't technically turn his head unless the toy was customized. Armada Hot Shot couldn't turn his head either, Tidal Wave, Energon Wing Saber, Armada Overload, etc.
