    Re-watching all the TF-movies before I can go see AOE which opened yesterday here in Belgium, I realized I don't have a Barricade in my collection. So, which one is best? And since I'm not a fan of the HA scale, Deluxe scale would be better.

    If you think the HA is that superior, then just put HA, after all I did make an exception for Jazz.

    Both the ROTF and DOTM Barricades are good. The ROTF one is a bit larger and not as in scale but the DOTM Barricade is the closest for scale in the Deluxes and is one o my favorite Con Deluxes. Hope that helps.

    I have movie 1 deluxe Barricade and the Dark of the Moon deluxe Barricade and I have to say the Dark of the Moon one is superior. I personally don't have the human alliance version but it looks nice by pics I just looked at on Google.

    best deluxe? i saw a sick custom of the TF1 barry with the DOTM head, maybe the hands too?

    obviously HA is best but i'll admit if they made a deluxe sized KO of it and jazz i'd eat my hat.

    the legends is also one of the best legends ever

    I honestly prefer the first movie one. I just really love that Premium paint job. Of course, it certainly isn't a perfect Barricade figure. Maybe if DOTM had a better paint job I might think it over.

    This should go in the Toy Discussion, but I'll just answer it anyways. I really loved the first movie Barricade. I literally played with him in the 67' Camaro BB all the time. I never got to own the Human Alliance version, but I wish I did. The DOTM version was alright, but not as good as the 2007 Barricade.

    HA is the better more accurate, but as for a deluxe I would have to say dotm is the best. It is a little shorter than the other movie versions, but it also is like a smaller HA Barricade.

    I don't mind the first movie one. I'll have to go with 2007 Barricade

    I have the ROTF deluxe, it's basically the same as movie 1 but has more silver situated on the legs, which I prefer than the metallic purple. If you want Frenzy and don't want HA scale then go with the movie 1 as the ROTF one comes with the sticky out headlights.

    Movie 1 Barricade, notice the metallic purple on the thighs. Comes with Frenzy that hides in the grill.

    ROTF, there's more silver on the legs. Comes with sticky out headlights that fold away in grill. It seems to have clearer face detailing as well. IMO, the paint seems more 'crisp'.

    The DOTM deluxe is basically a buffed down version of the HA one. It seems out of proportion IMO. Though the face sculpt is good. There is no Frenzy or headlights, just a Mechtech weapon. It's a tad small as well.

    Scaling next to the movie 1/ROTF mold, (DOTM left) Keep in mind that most deluxes are the size of the one on the right :p  The DOTM version's skinny legs stick out now...

    Ha hands down. It's more pose-able, more accurate and simply more fun than the others.

    As far as deluxes go, grab DOTM.

    If you get the HA one, do the hip mod. I shaved the "nubs" down and then switched hips, so the shaved parts aren't visible.

    Also, if you cannot find the HA, the bootleg one on Ebay from China is an exceptional version, from what I've heard.

    I've always loved the '07 deluxe Barricade, especially the Premium Series version with the better paint in vehicle mode and silver on the face. I also bought the '07 Screen Battles deluxe Barricade that came with a small non-posable Frenzy to display on my First Trilogy shelf. Here's a pic from it(sorry, it's dusty).

    I never bought the Human Alliance cause they don't scale well with voyagers or leaders. And I never cared for the DOTM version, cause it didn't look right, and was just too small.

    I like Recon Barricade just because it's so absurd.

    Human Alliance, easily. He doesn't squat as badly as his other toys

    I do agree. Rent-a-cop Barricade is absolutely the bee's knees.

    He doesn't stand as well without the squat either, hence the hip mod. It does wonders to the toy as a whole.

    I did have a DOTM deluxe in hand once, it was flimsy as crap.

    Either or, really. It belongs just as much in this Discussion as it does in the Toy Discussion.

    Thanks for the big comparison shots. Considering most of my 70+ movie toy collection's mainly ROTF and 07, I think I'll get the 07 deluxe with Premium if I can find it. I really dislike the proportions of all Human Alliance toys, and I don't like the look of HA. The only thing it's got over the others in my eyes is the wheel ball and chain weapon. I'm not too big a fan of the claw mechtech, (that's what it has, if I recall correctly), and it's prone to jamming. I'll just go with 07 with Frenzy, I still don't have one :)  Is 07 old camaro Bee worth hunting down as well? I'm not expecting HFTD Bee quality, but still.
