    I've heard some great things about both, but which is the preferred pick if you could only choose 1?

    HA Barricade. Already have the Twins, don't care for the Demolisher mold. Plus HA Barricade just looks awesome.

    Is Shanghai Battle pack really much of an improvement over the original molds? I actually think Demolisher might be worse in white. Twins are probably better- but are they significantly better?

    HA Barricade is absolutely an enormous improvement over the deluxe version.

    Depends on your own tastes and what you collect- but unless you never got the ice cream twins, I would think Barricade would be the one to go with.

    HA Barricade, like everyone else.

    Though Shanghai Demolisher does get an extra bit of fun going for him if you have a legends class Prime hanging off his head a la movie.

    Will warm? It already IS shelfwarming here. The only TRU exclusives that've actually sold out quickly have been the 6" Titanium figures along with Arcee and CM Ratchet.

    If either were easily available in the UK I'd go for HA Barricade over Demolisher and the Twins.

    If I was picking from those two and didn't have any other versions of these guys already I'd pick Barricade. I think that Demolisher mold is pure garbage; regardless of color.

    I'm sure that Shanghai set will be on "clearance" (for only $5 less since that's a clearance for TRU) soon. Then again, I'm pretty sure all the HA toys will be on clearance soon too. That whole line shelf warms at every store that sells TF's in my area.

    Barricade. Being I bought Barricade, and have the First Demolisher and ICT Twins, I definately think Barry is more bang for the buck. I keep seeing the Shanghai set at TRU, but besides it being the right color of the movie...I have little desire to buy another set of them.

    You need a poll, dude.

    And just to be on topic, Barricade :)

    There is no doubt, you should choose HA Barricade. Easily one of my all-time favorites.

    Sorry but are you serious? You're asking to pick between the best version of Barricade, and repaints?

    Go with Barricade, he'll change your life.

    HA Barry, easily. Everything in the Shanghai Battle pack is just repaints (a somewhat more accurate Demolishor and the same ICT Twins only with bad attempts at rust), while Barricade allows you to do one of the most memorable scenes in the first movie;
