    It's one of the most frustrating things when you arrive "late to the party" and you're kind of "I don't have a LOT to spend, but WOW that figure looks great!" Then you find video reviews and it looks great in hand and THEN you start Googling it.

    Out of Stock.

    Out of Stock. Expected in stock: Never (why list it on the webpage then?)
    At the moment I'm looking at £40+ to get Siege Barricade from China and TBH I could spend that £40 here in store better... I'm not even looking at the Generation Selects Odyssey set anymore.
    £40 for a deluxe figure? No thank you.

    Yeah, this hobby can really suck for those of us who suffer from chronic indecisiveness and don't have huge amounts of funds.

    It briefly came back in stock last night but it seems to be gone again this morning. Luckily I happened to check it right before going to bed so I was able to get an order in.

    I do believe that the issue lies in Hasbro's lack of logistics.

    How much are regular deluxes? If deluxes are $30 each, youcan try to justify the cost that way...

    Know what you mean. I’m waiting for the day when non-movie Barricade isn’t just a cheap repaint.

    If I'm remembering correctly, I pushed against his forehead, angling the head back until it popped off.

    The joints are slightly different sizes if I remember correctly.

    Finally got it on. I had to wrap the head with a towel while pushing it on. Snug fit but works perfectly without any modifications. The Siege head makes the ER mold feel more "Barricade-like"....(barricady? I don't think that is a real word...)

    I'd heard there were clearance issues with the chin or something when using this head on this mold. You didn't encounter any of that?

    None really. It's a tight fit because the ball joint is a little bigger on the ER mold but it works with no issues for me other than it was a pain to push on. I thought I would break the figure until it pops in.
