Transformers DOTM Deluxe Class – Barricade 10/1 – 10/7

Continuing on with my quest to hunt down as many DOTM ¬†figures as possible (especially since most are on clearance around these parts) here we have Barricade!Not much to say about car mode other than the fact that it looks amazing!Love the fact that the cop car is actually a bad guy in disguise ūüėČ I remember first seeing Barricade in the first TF movie and really digging him.It doesn’t get any more intimidating than Barricade in that scene as he gets in the face of ¬†Shia Labeouf ¬†to interrogate him.In DOTM Barricade makes a quick appearance towards the end of the film.Now alot of people have a problem with his robot mode but I don’t.I think the problem lies in how some people transform him.I believe the proper way to transform him involves the legs being separated,making him look like he has no torso.I on the other hand don’t separate the legs and that tends to give him more of an upright and balanced look.The one gripe I have is with his mechtech weapon.While it looks cool when deployed with the claw exposed,It’s not able to lock in place. I think the claw is a big part of Barricades appearance and overall vibe and the fact that it can’t be displayed permanently is a minor turn off.Other than that i’m loving this figure and will soon have to make more room to display these neat little DOTM ¬†Transformers!
