    I like Barricade, but I have the RC car from Radio Shack that transforms, so unless I'm mistaken, none of the RPMs transform, so I'll most likely pass.

    Wasn't there an RC Barricade for the 2007 film?
    I'm almost certain there was.

    [EDIT]
    Ah yeah, that's the one that I was thinking of.

    Well, it's nice to see Hasbro wasting their budget on things like this instead of giving us Classics/Universe Wheeljack or Jazz.

    I doubt the simple development of a car body shell and face for the remote destroyed any budget or prevented the development of a possible figure. If they don't make a Classics/Universe Wheeljack or Jazz, it's because they don't want to.

    With all this merchandise Barricade is getting for a movie he wasn't in, I'm hoping he'll have a very large role in the third movie to tie up his story and explain his disappearance from the first.

    ironic how they keep making product of Barricade, while at the same time he's being ignored in the the sequel.

    Barricade is just so awesome, he gets new toys and stuff even if he did not have a role in ROTF, but maybe he might have his revenge on Bee in TF3.

    Didn't you know? Everything costs the exact same to develop, design, and produce. A legends-class repaint means we can't get a life-sized Optimus Prime.

    Shelfwarmer ahoy!

    At £30, Prime and BB haven't exactly been selling over here, and they're far more popular characters.

    It's sad that a Legends Class Jazz is all we got, and also sad that I had to re-purpose my Energon Downshift as Classics Wheeljack.
