I want to bring up a couple questions about Barricade. (Yeah, I know... ) 1. It's been said that Barricade makes no appearance in ROTF. Is this true, and does that mean there's a possibility he may return in TF3? Would they/we even care at that point? 2. With Barricade's status up in the air, what does that mean for Prowl? Would the introduction of another police car Transformer (this time an Autobot) confuse general audiences, especially since the previous (Decepticon) one just disappeared into thin air two movies previous? Could Prowl have another, non law enforcement alt. mode? 3. Why do you think that Barricade has been so consistently forgotten about? First he was forgotten about in the climax of TF1, and then he was forgotten about for the entirety of ROTF. Did the screenwriters (or some other people in charge of the production) just not like him or something? Do you think that Sideways was intended to be the fugitive Barricade, reformatted and in hiding? His design and role in the movie seem to suggest that he was intended to be Barricade at some point, and the scene was written to basically fill that leftover TF1 plot hole. If that's true, was the name/identity change a totally toy-based decision (like naming and giving separate bios for each of Arcee's "parts")? 4. Speaking of toys, it's obvious that not everyone forgot about him, as he's gotten/getting several mainline figures. Does anyone else find it odd that he's getting not only a deluxe, but something as high-end as a Human Alliance figure in the ROTF line when he doesn't even have a cameo in ROTF? So yeah. The mystery of the bot named Barricade. Discuss.
