    Paints Used:
    - Black Gloss Acrylic
    - Red Gloss Acrylic
    - Silver Metallic Acrylic
    - Dark Gray Enamel
    - Flat Steel Enamel
    - Gloss Grape Enamel
    - Metallic Copper Enamel

    Mods:
    - Full head articulation
    - Disabled hand punching gimmick

    I remember getting this figure along with Premium Jazz and while the paint apps were good the figures themselves were lacking compared to some of the other figures that were out. Still I decided to keep them because at that point I was starting to become more of the collector that I am today. While there's plenty of problems with the figures they're still decent toys and with some modifications they could stand alittle better. Such as the case with Barricade here, which is the Premium version that Hasbro did back in 2008. After painting him up and managing to add head articulation via a ball joint I pull off a spare ROTF Skids figure (foot joint). I did the same with the Recon version which I should hopefully have painted up soon. In the mean time here's the figure that Hasbro should have given us back then.

    Nice Job!Although I'm not a fan of most of the movie versions,Barricade was one of my favorites.I just wish they would have given the Cons hands instead of pincher claw like fingers.
