They should change Barricade's bio:


"Once BARRICADE is on the trail of a target, he never rests until it is caught, or until he is deactivated [or written out of the script for the final action sequence and the second film]. He is the ultimate hunter, because he doesn’t care about anything but victory [and magically disappearing]."

Now, I'm more of a circuit man, so I'm open to enlightenment here... but what exactly is 'Rally' about Mudflap?

It's got dirt on it?

RE the deluxe Skids and Mudflap redecos: it's a bit of a shame that with all of the various redecos getting new heads at the same time, Skids and Mudflap haven't. Neat little toys, but still don't care for the faces.

He replaces the normal Chevy Aveo( I am not sure if it's the right one, as it could be the Meriva as well...) ?

He smokes heavy tobacco, and has a sticker on his bonnet?

Exactly. If they redid deluxe Skids with a new head I'd buy it. Now it's been relegated to an impulse buy if I ever feel like I want a tf, and there's nothing else around . . .

Wow, Ransack looks about eighty times better than the first one like that... If it wasn't for those awful arms I'd be mighty tempted. But they look crap, so there's no point.

Plus "hey, let's do a homage to a guy who was mainly remembered for being a pacifist hippy, BUT PUT GUNS ON HIM!!!!". Dune buggy to armoured car. WICKEDCOOLXTREMEHARDCORE.

Indeed, this and the recent Universe Classics Legends release indicate a change in Beachcomber's attitude, and takes 'Slash and Burn' conservation to a whole new level!

I'm actually not a fan of that paintjob, and that surprises me somewhat. In theory it sounds great, but in practice it turns into just this big blob of red. It needs more contrast in bot mode. There've been a few recent repaints that fell into this trap.

That's a Machine Robo scheme. What a bunch of idiots.

Well, you're allowed one mistake :p

Nah, I get what you're saying, but the first scheme was too far the other way, IMO. What we need is a full Jasta of the thing to fully decide. That, or some proper arms on the poor bastard...
