    I saw someone on Weibo asking them for a Guido Guidi inspired repaint of Maverick (aka Smokescreen). This could be their answer.

    I'm sold. Sure looks like Barricade with "To Punish and Enslave" on the rear fender.

    Hopefully the Barricade repaint of Harry is called Barry.

    I decided earlier that I wasn't going to pick up Bluestreak and Smokescreen, but then they announce a blue Bluestreak and a Barricade and I smashed the "absofuckinglutely preorder this now" button really fast. I really hope Barry starts the other 3rd parties down the copycat path and we get more Prowl repaints of him in other lines.

    Absolutely fantastic.

    Interesting that this is described as a Harry repaint. This it will still have the Smokescreen head?

    He will most likely bear a close resemblance to this:

    I have a mighty need for this repaint. Very glad to see Barricade getting some more love.

    So far it is looking like it is, at least along the top.

    That black triangle in the driver's window is part of the door. The purple window part folds down for robot mode.

    I'm honestly more excited for the Barricade version than for any of the other repaints.

    Well, I caved and ordered Harry and Manero. I guess this will be my carbot scale now, so I hope NewAge puts out the rest of the carbots in a nice, timely manner (by 3P standards, at least).

    Now I have to decide if their Barricade is worth getting. Maybe they should call it "Barry."

    I like the "evil cop car" concept of Barricade, though I've become a bit of a "Geewunner" over the last several years (at least in terms of which characters I feel the need to buy toys representations of), so Barricade (even in a G1 style) might not really hit those nostalgia buttons that I like my TFs to hit. On the other hand, it looks nice in that pic above.

    I'd like it if they gave this G1 Barricade a double crest like at 2:15 in the video below:


    I thought that was a nice touch for differentiating Barricade from Prowl. I'm not really expecting NA's Barricade to have a double crest like that, but I think it'd be cool.

    Well it could be like hastak wfc barricade in that it's just a (p)repaint* of smokescreen.

    *in official line, barricade was announced before smokescreen but he's clearly based off of the smokescreen look.

    Yup. The smokescreen is generations selects and the barricade is mainline siege.

    At a quick glance, I'd say I prefer a G1-styled Barricade to have a Prowl-style face/head, albeit with that double crest if possible. If NA's Barricade is a straight Prowl redeco, I'll get the Prowl part of that at least.

    What are all the companies making the Datsun brothers? There is Newage, and two more right, and they are new companies. I can't remember, is Transform Element making them also.
