Keith's Fantasy Club teamed up with Auto Assembly
to bring fans the Auto Assembly 2013 custom figure kit - Bad Cop
! Based on the concepts for Transformers Universe Barricade, this kit includes everything you need to customize a First Edition Transformers Prime Vehicon into a Transformers Prime Barricade.
The kit is nice and easy to do - all you need is a little superglue to fix on the lightbar, and a careful hand to apply the stickers. Since the head is on a balljoint you can just pop the Vehicon's head off and plug in the Barricade head, though I found I needed to just gently shave a little plastic off the socket for the ball joint for the best fit.
The final effect is excellent - the new head perfectly captures the look and feel of a Transformers Prime character, and the half a dozen main stickers - two for the doors, two for the rear wheel arches and a two-part one for the roof - help to complete the look. In vehicle mode, Bad Cop looks very cool and dynamic, with the additional details added by the stickers complementing the existing look of the Vehicon's vehicle mode nicely. In robot mode, some of the new details are hidden but the stickers on the vehicle's sides are now on the arms, which together with the new head gives the robot mode its own identity.
Bad Cop was produced in very limited quantities for Auto Assembly. If you were able to get your hands on one of these kits, congratulations, you own one of the cooler third party "garage kit" sets on the market. If you are a fan of Transformers Prime and get a chance to pick up this kit, I recommend you go for it - it is a great complement to any Transformers Prime collection.
