One of the few Transformers that I never knew until the first Transformers movie came out in 2007. When he first appeared with all the leaked pics/videos of the movies, I was floored! I couldn't believe that they had gotten Ford to agree to use the Mustang. From what I know it isn't easy to get car manufacturers to use their products in movies, especially as a "bad guy". He turns out to be a Saleen S281E police car. Beautiful car and amazingly fast.
I got attached to him quickly and when the movie came out it was just beyond words can describe. I so attached to his character that I had gone out and bought his shirt ( I still wear to this day ) On his rear quarter it reads "To punish and enslave..." I guess it's a parody of the classic police slogan "To Protect and Serve". Great idea Bay! The front quarter police logos have the Decepticon symbol on them and the writing "Pacis Quod Alcedonia", Latin for "Still, Halcyon Days of Peace", and "Incorporated since June 1865".
With all that said and a little knowledge of Barricade he has made his way into the Kre-O line but only as a Kreon. He comes in a little set with Autobot Troopers.
Me? I'm a Transformaniac through and through. I've been collecting for over 20 years and my collection is starting to outgrow "The Vault"! I collect, maintain and refurbish my Transformers and I am always looking for new (and old) ones to add to my 1000+ plus collection. Feel free to check out my collection, as it's ever-growing and I'll be updating my blog with new Transformers as soon as I get them.
