    Well the toy card says...

    Repaired and retrofitted after the battle of Mission City, Barricade elected to remain on Earth while Starscream returned to Cybertron. He has devoted his time on Earth to gathering intelligence for the inevitable rise of the Decepticons. he stalks and captures importan humans, the scans, interrogates and disposes of the captives using the highly sensitive probes built into his vehicle mode.

    So I figure's he's still up and running around Earth somewhere.

    After seeing everybody get their rears handed to them, I can see him sitting this one out.

    I'm hoping he is back for TF3. I kind of expected him to be in the police chase scene.

    that was sideways

    he was rebuilt/repaired after that fight. reign of starscream shows starscream meet up with barricade who is still alive after the fight.

    the movie prequel comics also show barricade alive and well

    the one who picked up sams parents had the same head as the protoforms, it was nothing like the head of barricade. that transformers face can be seen on the new verizon commercial...its nothing like barricades.

    same as above, it was a protoform

    no it doesnt, the prequel novel doesnt mention anything that happened with him

    doubt it, seems more like they just copied barricades cgi model like they did with half the other robots in the movie. Everyone assumed it was supposed to be barricade because of the similarities because no one thought we would get shafted with re-used cgi models, everyone figured that if they were that similiar it was because they were the same bot, everyone was played

    He could reappear in the third film. Here's another example: what if Bay decided not to put the twins in the third? They may not be dead, we may just not see them. Or Ratchet and Jolt during the Shanghai mission. Where was Soundwave during the first film? Just because he wasn't shown doesn't mean he might not have been floating above, finding an army base for Blackout to attack.

    Barricade was just Prowl infiltrating the Con ranks. Optimus ordered him to get out of the way as they would be killing anything with a Con signia on it. He got off the road, left Earth returning to Cybertron as Barricade and took up the hobby of playing chess with Shockwave.

    It was somewhat odd that he wasn't in the film b/c his toys have been selling well even with the stupid arms that stick out of alt mode, and mostly b/c people really liked that he was a reflection of modern day police.

    The Charger is in no way shape or form a sports car, and it is not a rival of the Mustang at all. Now some older Chargers, some Challengers, and some Cuda's would be pretty damn nice.

    I've been wondering this too. Maybe they were talking about him while Prime was talking about hunting Decepticons all over the planet, but it seems that would be a little cheap for a character as badass as Barricade!

    Yeah, big let down, with Barricade not being in the movie. But, in the prequel novel, and please forgive me if this was mentioned. Prime was tricked into fighting Starscream at the coliseum in Rome, trapped by some human hepling Starscream. Only to have Barricade come out to kill Prime. Prime breaks loose fights Barricade and traps him beneath rock for NEST to capture. That's the extent of it. No mention if NEST did in fact capture him or if the destroyed him.

    I know that is not fact, and nobody has said what has become of him. Something else we should ask Mr.Ocri about. Maybe he's the ultimate threat to the Autobots in T3, instead of Megatron or Starscream?.?.?

    Barricade wasn't offered a return part in the movie because when they decided to have the two cripps gang bangers in the film they thought it might not be a good idea to have a possible confrontation with the POLICE. Wouldn't want another Rodney King situation on our hands.
