    Wow, that's pretty much confirmation that Barricade will be appearing in Bumblebee The Movie. I know we've had a lot of hints from the toys and whatnot, but I was starting to doubt that he would appear.

    Now I'm really curious what his vehicle mode is. I doubt the red Plymouth is him, because that car is said to be female. I bet "Blue Light" is a police car.

    AAAAAAAAAAAAA YES

    Oh god yes! Barricade once again in the hiz-ouse!

    I really hope they give him his TF1 voice and not his TLK voice, however...

    In fairness, his TLK voice was Generic. Made him sound like Scary Terry from Rick & Morty.

    Not really, it just sounded like Ironhide.

    But it's still Generic. His 2007 voice would be better.

    It's the same voice technically, just not pitched down as much, or with the metallic flanging added.

    But yes I'd also prefer his voice as it sounded in TF1.

    He was also shouting at a little boy in the first movie to seem scary, in 5 he was the little boy, so that's also a reason why his voice changed.

    If I remember correctly from the leaks from Studio Series, isn't "Blue Light" supposedly the unknown hero?

    Yes, that metallic flange makes it so much better. I'm really kinda disappointed that they ditched it for ROTF-onward.

    Barricade should have his Wakko Warner voice.* ;)

    I wanted Keith David to voice him dammit, Jess sucked ass and brought little personalities to Barricade.

    I wouldn't really call him a "boy" considering how much more mature, collective, wise and smarter he is than some of his peers and Megatron.

    But will he use the menacing voice from the 2007 film or the Ironhide-ish voice from TLK?

    We may never know.

    Cool. Looking forward to seeing more of Barricade. He's one of my favorite 'Cons in the movieverse.

    Coincidentally, he voiced both Ironhide and Barricade in the first movie.

    I'd like to think that the reason his voice sounds different in TF1 and TLK is because he was using his interrogation voice in TF1. Maybe his TLK voice is his conversation voice.

    I like his usage in TF1, but it was neat to see him in conversation in TLK. In some ways I kind of prefer that voice, because it makes him feel more like a character instead of a monster. I hope we get good dialog between the Decepticons in this movie. It would be really clever if they could find a way to work in both voices.

    As for his design, I would like to see his TF1 design, but with the bulkiness of his TLK design.

    If that's the case, I'm really confused, lol. I assumed it was a Decepticon.
