So here are both Deluxe Barricade molds in robot mode side by side. I did a good bit of extra detail painting and filling inaccurate colored parts in with the right colors on both. Other than that, no mods, but to help remove some of the chicken leg look on DOTM Barricade, I removed the thigh flaps that make the car rear shell. They pop right off. I hope you guys like em!
I'm really torn as to which of these I like better!
To be honest, neither are great representations of the on-screen character, but which is closest and coolest looking too?
The newer DOTM figure has a slightly better upper half IMO. The arms aren't just the sides of the car so much as the 07 tawy. They split up a good bit more and have actual poseable hands. Also, his head is on a ball joint, while 07 Barricade's head is just stuck in place.
Still, the DOTM figure has those thinner legs and his smaller size make him look like a pansy next to his movie rival, Bumbleballs.
Which is the best Deluxe Barricade? I have too much else to think about and this is one of those weird things that's bugging me, lol.
