Barricade or Blackjack WIP by WheelJack-S70 Barricade or Blackjack WIP by WheelJack-S70
I thought I would share this little project since I won't be able to bash much for a while. I loved the alt mode on this but didn't much like the bot. plus he didn't fit in with my classics based collection.
I'm not sure if I want to keep him as barricade or make him Blackjack [link]
I have no emotional attachment to either from my childhood but I do try to stick to G1 almost exclusively. Barricade was a formula style race car [link]
at least blackjack was a mustang. Then again it would be nice to retie my collection to the movie.
I'm still undecided. :(

I grew accustomed to the Barricade movie design. But thiis is what I thought about the first time I got the figure in hand.

Thanks, yeah, I kept wanting him to push and pull him into something more classic looking. I went with blackjack on this one.

Actually, if you eliminate the police insignias but keep the colors, then I see more of Blackjack.

Awesome interpretation... well it depends
Dreamwave comics treat that the Micromasters were once regular sized bots before they were downsized
Also since Hasbro put some Micromasters homages in some toys like Countdown, Stormcloud, and Dropshot for Universe toys and Big Daddy in the movie toys... they are suppose to be their original forms before being "downgraded" as micromasters. But that is just an opinion, personal interpretation and Hasbro way to getting us to buy the toys... which I did...

Again....AWESOME!!

I hate the movie-verse, so I'm biased. I vote Blackjack.

I love the movies and I also love the idea of a Classics Barricade. Keep him as Barricade.

Actually, I like the idea of "classicsfying" all movie figures. Seems like it's the only way to get REAL vehicles into robots.

I like that idea too. that's why I was so torn. I think I'm going with blackjack though. I fear that my vision for my bashes is expanding a little to quickly. I need to focus a bit. I'll stick to g1 for the time being. :)

Ohh-ahh, you fulfilled every fangirls dream! :glomp: You did Barricade handsome!!!!!!!!!! :winner:

I cant tell you how much i hate the bayverse bots.
I admit, alien robots would much more look like those but baaaawwww :crying: gimme teh beautiful Geewuns!! Not the bird-feet insect-faced Bionicle clones. :iconbarricadeplz:

As referring to the microbots, you can keep him as Barricade; just think about the many mistakes they did at toylines, misnaming or changing or simply mistaking the chars... Those two could well swap names.

I think Barricade is a better fitting name for a street car than a Formula racer.

"I think Barricade is a better fitting name for a street car than a Formula racer."

true dat. I would have never considered remaking the microbots in the first place. I'm more toon over toy oriented. this is one of those bashes where the toy dictated the bash. Now I'm just trying to figure out who he is. :D Speak to me! ok I need to get out of my toy room.

Nooo! *chains you to the work bench*
oh, kidding. Well, reading some fanfics could help, maybe, to decide the personality. Ups, that'd require more free time...

"Speak to me!" :iconohuplz: exactly thats what i yell at my toys when i want to write something.
