    How long before ROTF Human Alliance Barricade v. MPM-05 Barricade becomes the new ROTF Leader Optimus Prime v. MPM-04 Optimus Prime? Because I would hope we somewhat moved on from that saga (it was too much filler episodes and stupid conclusions)

    When the preorders go up mMMMMMhmMMMBOYYYYYYY

    Just kidding you are already aboard, welcome. The talishypeman will protect you

    Dudeeeeee, it feels SO refreshing to say I'm waiting for a third Masterpiece, and not a 3rd party Masterpiece. Finally

    But HA Barricade was always a loser, since the beginning. Even only seeing the doors, the MPM already destroys it.

    Oy, please no! I like the HA figure, don't get me wrong, but there's a lot of room for improvement with that mold, particularly with the leg articulation (the hips are hindered on the HA for no good reason) and the missing left hand (so it could accommodate the gimpy wheel mace weapon gimmick), among other thing. Especially with engineering progress these days since the 2008-9 days of the ROTF/HTFD toy line era (nearly 8-9 years ago).

    The seam in the door in this teaser image (if it's authentic) seems like a step in the right direction. Frenzy and Barry's wheel mace weapon better be included (though I don't particularly care if it's integrated into his arm or not, but I would rather not given how compromised the HA's version is; better just have them as standalone accessories much like MPM-4's ion cannon and energon swords).

    I sincerely hope frenzy is a separate toy that won't have to interact in his chest
    Why is everyone so in love with HA version?? The deluxe 07 toy was way more film accurate with no kibbles or white all over his face than it. movie_2007_deluxe_barricade_by_transformer_products-d8trg8r.jpg

    Ok.... so how long before somebody drags DOTM Deluxe Barricade into this discussion? :lol 

    Nothing wrong with comparisons, it's just interesting to see how different beauty is in the eye of the beholder

    Already a big step forward with the really accurately-shaped door panel for robot mode.
