    Okay, so I have been bouncing around a few different forums now and then and it seems that quite a few people like the notion of Barricade really being Prowl in disguise. I, for one, do not like this idea. I mean Prowl is a cool character and all but I just love the character of Barricade. He is second as my favorite movie character (blackout being first) and I am crossing fingers he will be in the sequel. I just like the fact that he is a police cruiser as well and one of my favorite cars too. It really is like the epitome of a decepticon to be something so trusting to us and yet be so evil. so double crossing. What about you guys, any thoughts?

    I definitely think they should be kept as separate characters. Barricade was great as is, and doesn't need to be shoehorned into being Prowl.

    That said, I wouldn't mind seeing them in the same movie together, as it would be great to see them fight, cop vs. cop.

    i say the idea of a decepticon police car screams for more stories.
    (imagine him calling in human backup,like the t-x.)
    him being prowl makes no real sense--just guys unwilling to accept a new idea,i expect.

    I hate that idea too, Barricade is my favorite Decepticon, I'd hate to see him turned into an Autobot.

    I hope they bring him back and keep him evil, and a cop car!

    agreed. I can't wait for a sequel BUUUUUT at the same time I don't want them to rush into it this soon. I've seen to many good movies destroyed because of rushed sequel and Im not about to let Transformers become another.

    I'm a Barricade fan too. I think the idea of Barride being Prowl in disguise is interesting, but I'm not buying it all the way. I was thinking of Prowl getting into a fight with Barricade, scanning his alt mode, changing the "Punish and Enslave" back to "Protect and Serve" then doing some infiltration. Showing up a to some Decepticon expecting Barricade and being totally blown away by Prowl.

    Not keen "Barricade is Prowl in disguise" either. Sure, one can use Punch and Counterpunch as examples but Counterpunch's sometimes written as a split personality of Punch's. Barricade and Prowl should be kept as two different characters. If the film folks decided to use Prowl, they should use his G1 personality as at least a base to draw on.

    Heh, whole new meaning to good cop vs. bad cop. That would be nice to see...

    Good cop... bad cop. Meh, I don't see a need for Prowl considering the film followed the cartoon's route of having Jazz and Ironhide as Optimus' lieutenants.

    Maybe 'cause he couldn't? Maybe Barricade wore him out, or, since Barricade obviously wasn't in any shape at the moment to fight, BB thought he was finished.

    Brawl was different, as he wouldn't stop till he was dead.

    the offcial Good cop/bad cop thread..

    Anyway, I don't think Barricade is Prowl. I mean the Autobots trashed him. If he was a Autobot, Optimus knows the Decepticons are pretty much dead, so whats the need for exposing his cover if their are no Decepticons to infilrate. I don't think they would just dump Prowl away.

    The only reason people think Barricade is Prowl is because they turn into police cars and have a similar head crest.

    By that logic, I declare Starscream to be Waspinator in disguise, Brawl to have been G2 Megatron in disguise, and Blackout to be the left leg of Energon Prime in deep cover.
