    Fantastic paintjob on a mold I like! Makes me wish this was a wide release. Frenzy is cool too. Joints are solid as well.

    I must have a defective one because the two balljoints on one of his front wheels cannot stay attached to his shoulder and arm.

    Mine is almost as loose as my BH Smokescreen...nowhere near as good as Prowl. His hood kibble just wobbles.

    Doesn't stop him from looking tremendous in both modes though. A figure I didn't expect to like, or love, or own, but digging him mightily. Always loved Police Barricade.

    The mold is what the mold is and while I actually like it for its complexity and looks I do wish the arm kibble wasn't so bad and the transformation wasn't quite so finicky. Anyway, that aside my only real complaint with this guy other than him not getting a unique head sculpt is that the center of his light bar isn't painted differently but rather is just covered red. Feels like a simple but obvious oversight in an otherwise gorgeous redeco of a pretty neat figure.

    I figured out why mine won't stay together. On the front wheels, there are two ball joints of different sizes. My barricade came assembled wrong and stretched one of the sockets. When I switch it around, one stays in ok, but the one that goes in the stretched socket cannot even snap in. :(

    That head looks a lot better on the mold. It actually helps make this feel more like Barricade then with the Prowl head.

    when i'll get this guy, i'll keep the first edition vehicon with the bad cop kit as the prime one, and the tfss version as the "reformated good as new" beast hunter barricade, that could work well

    I prefer the Prowl head. Third party molds just don't look good to me. Okay, so it looks more like the promo artwork but this isn't movie Barricade so he can have a Prowl head no problem. I never cared for movie Barricade as a character but this Barricade looks pretty good though.

    I hope to see a Combiner Wars Barricade from Prowl sometime.

    It's neat how this toy and 2014 Emergency Response Streetsmart are like mirror reflections of each other.

    I absolutely FORGOT this figure existed! Now I’m torn on whether I want this one (if I can find it for a decent price because TFCC), or get the TLK & Siege Deluxes and swap the heads like I saw in the Custom Figures section
