Barricade

I agree with all your

I agree with all your points, Atom. Sculpted well, but not very poesable. (BTW, why is it that Barricade and Jazz warrant glow-from-behind eyes, but both ver. of Bumblebee just get painted?)

The shoulders are what did it in for me, in addition to the ankles. Oh, BTW, you pointed out that the shoulder armor are ball-and-sockets, but you forgot to rotate them around like they are in the movie. And you forgot to flip the two foot spikes up.

...

I did find, however, that it is possible to tighten the ankle joint... to a point. If you look at the fender armor behind his heels and the trunk armor on the back of his calves, they overlap somewhat. However, if you continue to rotate them back just a tiny bit more, then the fender will overlap the trunk armor, and the ankle will snap into place. You will lose the ability to twist the ankle, but you will gain stability when he stands/poses.

But the instructions don't tell you this...

I got this a while back, it

I got this a while back, it istotally worth the 10 bucks, on mine, the door windows/wings are too tight to budge. I just leave them down, for if i push any harder, im almost positive they will break.

Human Alliance Barricade sighted!

TFormers.com just posted a new image of him. It's small, but looks more articulate than the first figure from 2007. It also appears to come with a human figure!
There is no indication from the one photo if he will come with Frenzy or not, but the wheel on his left arm can sprout spikes just like in the movie. The right arm seems to follow with the tradition of other HA sets, and can seat the human figure in a chair with a specialized weapon there.
