Transformers: Barricade . Finally, here is my 2nd Transformers model, it took me a very long time to finish, of course was tough and a little bit “boring” time, I almost done with it long time ago but didn’t have the time to take photos and videos to post it, in this hard build I tried my best to make a nice looking Transformers model in both modes, I believe my 1st Transformer was great on auto mode but not on robot mode, as a lot of you guys told me, at least I think it’s better than my first attempt, although I think it’s your call, I can’t judge my own work, you can, so hope you like it every one. Thanks for visiting my page .
Barricade is apparently a complicated robot. He's considered "fractious" even by Decepticon standards, yet is willing to give Starscream the benefit of the doubt and follow where he leads, at least for the time being. Though not totally dedicated to the service of the Decepticons' current leader, he is much more cautious and reserved about expressing mutinous dissent than say most. He believes that Starscream is vital in their search for Megatron and the AllSpark. In many ways this makes him Starscream's closest ally in the naturally combative Decepticon ranks. Then again, it's been said that he likes to trick people into trusting him, just so he can see their reactions when they find out just how much of a bad idea it was. As such, he has disguised himself as an Earth police car in an attempt to fool the humans around him.
If his attitude toward his fellow Decepticons is inconsistent, his attitude toward the Autobots is not: kill them all. Barricade might not be as large as most of his peers, but he is every bit as deadly. He thoroughly relishes every chance in fighting the Autobots. He's smart enough to let one live if he thinks he or the Decepticons can use it to their advantage, but most of the time, they're dead before someone's even thought of a plan.
Let’s begin with some front shots of this bad cop:
A couple of top shots:
Notice how I made the led lights at the top of the roof…
I didn’t use any non-LEGO stickers as I wanted my model to be “pure” LEGO ;-)
Or may be I’m too lazy to get some for my model :-O
And some shots for the rear:
"I'm always the Bad Cop. And don't bother asking for the Good Cop. I killed him."
And here’re some shots of the robot mode:
Barricade in action:
And a close up image so you can see the details of the face clearly:
The back of Barricade:
In order to make the robot stable and solid, without adding or removing any piece thru the transforming process; I made some “built in” lock pins all over the model as shown in the coming pictures:
Leg and arm details pic:
A photo of the bottom of the car mode shows how complicated this MOC was:
Before I go Barricade has a short message for you guys: “Hey kidos, try to improve your photos quality and presentation of your MOCs, as I consider it a big part of the creation itself, it will bring more attention to your work for sure”
The Youtube video:
Of course here’s a short movie to show you how the model transforms from car mode to robot mode, sorry about the quality, I didn’t find any one yesterday to hold the camera for me, so you’ll see my hands more than the MOC itself :-0
