ARE YOU USERNAME: LADIESMAN217?! Barricade
Sub-Theme: Transformers (Movie 1)
Release: March 2018
Alternate Mode: Ford Mustang Saleen S281
Equipment: Rotor Blades
Retail Price: $99.99 (American Import)
This is supposed to be the definitive version of Barricade from the original Transformers. Unfortunately all he comes with is his HUGE blade weapon with a stand and features rely heavily on awkward poseability. No gun and no minicon Frenzy.
He was the second most prominent Deception in the first movie and TLK, so his importance is justifiable in getting. There isn't a better version of this character in robot or vehicle mode, its just a shame he doesn't come with more surrounding his character.
This is screen accurate to the highest degree. He is about the same size of Bumblebee, but holds a more menacing presence. His arms are longer than his legs and the figure brings out all these features and proportions that breathe life to the character model.
He's got a lot of joints, as any Masterpiece should, but they have extremely weird placement. Its a pain to pose his arms due to lack of 'normal' arm mechanics. The Rotor blade spins excellently, and he has the ability to move his sharp fingers and mouth.
Total Rating: 7.5/10
This isn't as pressing a Masterpiece purchase as Prime or Bee were. The complicated poseability in the arms as well as lack of definitive accessories make for a toss up. You won't be dissatisfied with this figure, but you would want more of out it.
