Barricade Transformers TLK

After sitting out the events of Transformers: Age Of Extinction, one of the first Decepticons that the Autobots had to deal with after making their way to Earth has returned to cause them some trouble. The official Twitter account for the franchise has revealed a first look at ‘Barricade’ in his new Decepticon mode, ready to “Punish And Enslave” the humans of Earth in Transformers: The Last Knight. Will he be bringing along any of the other Decepticons from the previous films as well? Well, if these reveals are any indication, it looks like we’ll be finding out very soon. Check out the image below and let us know what you think in the comments section below afterwards.

  • Maybe it’s me, but I feel like because of all the detail they add (the wires, tubes, gears, cylinders and “car” parts) every Transformer looks the same, with the exception of slightly unique faces. I mean, you go back and look at the 80’s TV show (which this is originally based) and you can see such different looks between all the Transformers. I mean, despite both being big trucks you could see the difference and never mistake Optimus Prime for Ultra Magnus, but in the movie by Michael Bay, if their backs were facing you or you covered their heads, you’d have no clue.

    Maybe it’s my childhood memories creeping up, but I just feel like — despite all the hardwork those designers and CG artists put into those designs — it’s overkill and just to complicated and thus cold and I don’t care. I saw the first film out of curiosity, but haven’t seen the rest as I didn’t really care for the way they translated them to film. Making them contemporary is one thing, making Jazz say things like “What’s crackin’ b!tches.” Is another and it’s just not needed. I’m not prude when it comes to language, I’m a down right sailor, but when you translate a kids cartoon to the big screen and just openly destroy what made them clean and safe for kids… you lost me and my inner childhood memories.

    • It’s not just you. Everybody knows the robot designs are messy and nearly indistinguishable from one another. That sort of encapsulates the actual action and stories of this movie series, if you think about it.

      Saddens me to think of how we’ll probably never get a truly good Transformers movie with robots that actually look like Transformers.
