TF2 Deluxe Audi R8 Toy Pictures

The Arker.com has posted pictures of the Transformers 2 Deluxe toy for the Audi R8 seen at the Bethlehem and Philly shoot, usually involved in a chase sequence. It is also the same vehicle mentioned on the call sheets (which have yet to be contradicted) and it matches the leaked robot mode (pic above) of the character. The person with the toy just didn't quite do the transformation right. The name of the character currently isn't known. It is a Decepticon, it reminds me of Barricade but the face mold is different. However, there is nothing preventing Barricade from returning in a new mode since his final fate has never been officially confirmed. Below are a select pictures, but the full galleries of images are here and here.

  2. I think it might be Barricade as well. In the comic prequel Alliance he's currently still alive. The claws are the most similar I think, but the face says otherwise. :/

  3. He only needs to rotate that piece on his back so it points upwards, and it'll be a perfect match to the earlier robot image.

    Slick vehicle mode! I think the robot mode has not been completely transformed yet. Reckon there's still more tabbing, fastening, and turning and twisting of pieces to get the final look (especially his back). Probably his back latches properly to the car trunk, and the windows need to be swivelled up?

    Greatttt look. So far, Sideswipe and this one, have by far, the best vehicle modes.

    Oh God this teases my senses to the max! Come out already with your action figures Hasbro!!!

  6. How many times I have to say this? Barricade's fate isn't unknown. In first movie's comic adaption Barricade was killed by Optimus Prime short time after Bonecrusher's death. But Starscream fixed him in Reign of Starscream sequel comic.

    Prime didnt kill Barricade. The Movie Adaptation was from an earlier script version. In Transformers: Reign of Starscream #1
    Barricade was ran into a bride support column by Ironhide. When Starscream found him he was in the process of recharging himself and Starscream told him to continue his recon of the Autobots.

    I would go with the T:ROS version

    That being said I dont think this is Barricade.

  9. It might be true that this robot isn't Barricade, but faces are still like him has and hands are too like his hands. If anyone has more information about that Audi R8 robot, send a link to here. I'm a very big fan of these Transformers live action movies and I want to get all information of characters robot modes, alternate modes and voice actors immidiately.

  10. Barricade's twin. There's already Twins like Skids and Trax robot. Why there would need to be Twins to the Decepticons?

    Why you peeps keep thinking it is Barricade is beyond me. There are a number of Decepticons who has transforms into a car as their alt mode like the Stunticons & Runabout & Runamuck. So it could be any one of them...

  21. I think nobody of those commentors has it. I've asked, but nobody didn't know.

  22. Sweet car!

    The concept art bears a striking resemblance to Barricade, in terms of his arms, torso, and legs.

    It would be cool to have that be "Barricade reincarnate", but I don't want too many old characters brought back to life, so maybe it's a stunticon. (Yes! Finally, a Decepticon that isn't a giant guns-a-blazin' military vehicle.)

    We'll just have to wait and see:)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Huh. He looks like a Decepticon version of Alternators/Binaltech Silverstreak.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Barricade and Frenzy weren't military weapons too. By the way, Scorponok is metallic animal, not military weapon. Soundwave, Ravage and Constructicons aren't military weapons too. In first rest of the Decepticons were military weapons, but in ROTF movie things are different.

    A rule in filmmaking: If it ain't in the script, then it ain't true. The Average Joe shouldn't have to read some comic book to know what happened to a movie character. If their fate wasn't revealed in a film, then we didn't know what happened to them. It's either a plothole or an ambiguous ending.

    Barricade should still be alive.

  26. Okay, now that I've actually taken the time to look at the toy, am I the only one that thinks it looks nothing like the actual car?

    ^^ There's the car, it's completely different.

  28. Head of the Toy looks like Barricade. Same mouth and eyes, but head and cheeks are shaped differently.

    IMO: Barricade reformat again to continue his recon mission under disguise. Hence, the some slight similarities to the original Barricade mustang appearance. Due, to his reformat, his appearance alters his looks a bit. (Or could be his Twin brother with a cool hairdo)

    ReplyDelete
  29. The red and pink color screams 'gay' to me and doesn't seem to follow the usual color scheme for all Movie Decepticons. Is there a chance this robot might be a not-so effeminate female? Someone who cld go on a catfight with Arcee . .

    ReplyDelete
  30. maybe it's smokescreen

    ReplyDelete
  31. yeahyeah true... kinda like the smokescreen from transformers cybertron

    ReplyDelete
  32. or the return of jazz in the form of a decepticon.

    ReplyDelete
  33. If Not a Rebuilt Barricade, it has to be Breakdown.....

    ReplyDelete
  34. That's one sweet looking Audi. I also seriously doubt its Barricade. The more I see, the better I think this movie will be.

    ReplyDelete
  35. catfight with arcee haha

    ReplyDelete
  36. car looks good, robot not so good

    ReplyDelete
  37. this robot could be a spy working for the autobots?...

    ReplyDelete
  38. I also think it is Barricade. There are quite a few things that are similar to him here, including the face.

    His hands are similar even including the car's tires around his wrists like Barricade's.

    His feet are similar since Barricade's feet came together as if he was wearing a shoe instead of spread apart like claws, which is also present here.

    The way Barricade's car doors opened up like wings.. however Bumblebee had that, too so that might just be a normal car thing in robot mode.

    The head looks like a slightly modified version of Barricade's. For example, Barricade had a very elegant design about his head and very Decepticonish with all the fancy and wild metal shapes that made up his face. A lot of those same shapes are present in this toy such as the sharp edged shape that creates that high cheekbone look. He also had a longer jaw which looks to be shortened here and a higher crest that has also been shortened. His head reminded me of the Green Goblin from Spider Man with a very angry appearance.

    If it isn't Barricade, it's no big deal. Just pointing out the very high similarities. I don't really like the idea of the Transformers from the movie looking so similar to each other since each one was always very unique and I would hope they'd try and keep it that way for the second movie.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I agree that it seems like a very good possibility that this could/should be Barricade. The movie clearly never showed what happened to Barricade. He never showed up to the final battle and as above posters have already mentioned, the movie tie-in comimcs have clearley showed him to not be dead. either way if you read the comics or not, it should not be a surprise to see him show up in the next movie. Kind of like it wasn't a surprise to see the Scarecrow show up in The Dark Knight. Didn't take up a lot of the movie but tied up some loose ends.

    In addition to all of this, I don't know if anyone remembers the CGI pictures that where released of this Audi Character two or three months ago? They where online on line for about a day before they where removed at the request of Paramount but the second I saw those pictures I thought, "This is Baricade. Looks just like him just a different car." which makes perfect sennse. To stay covert he would need to take a new vehicle mode and that would explain the head looking slightly different. Remeber the autobot's faces in protoform looked nothing like their faces did after scanning earth vehicles. So their faces are definatley linked to the vehicles they choose. Soooo, Baricade takes a new vehicle mode of a vehicle roughly the same size and shape as the mustang, and as a result his face looks slightly different. Anyway, just my opinion. Time will tell. I'm sure a picture of the package will turn up soon, and we'll all know the answer.

  40. can't wait to see who this turns out to be.. but it really bothers me why the car isn't accurate, and where the logos went

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow Barricade huh yeah his fait is unknown but come on barricade the only TF that can reformat his head use the brain people..i see where everyone thinks its him but seriously why would his head change??makes no sense its a new character

    ReplyDelete
  42. yeah you're right... Bambelbee didn;t change his head when he reformatted...

    ReplyDelete
  43. The Audi is present in the supposed opening scene in China. How did a reformatted Barricade get there? I don't think it's him.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Barricade: I would like if this were Barricade... I'd be sad about the departure of the Saleen (eyegasm inducing metal, right there), but I do love the R8... He was also one of my favorite characters from the movie. I do believe it would make sense for Barricade to reformat. He's a scout, primarily, and Starscream DID send him out to do recon on the A'bots. His Mustang form was WAY too conspicuous. (I'll miss the, somewhat kinky, 'To punish and enslave' slogan...)

    The Audi: Of course it's not going to look EXACTLY like the true Audi R8. It's a toy that has to make somewhat complex transformations. Certain things are going to have to be sacrificed.

    I'm not saying it IS 'Cade, but I would like it if it was.

  45. the minute i saw the face of the robot it looked like ratchet but the evil version of him.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. i like transformer

    ReplyDelete
  48. Bumblebees head didn't change because bumblebee reformatted into a newer version of the same car. Same color same make. He also wasn't reformatting to hide what he already was. He just changed because Mikala was talking smack. Barricade would be reformatting for a tottaly different reason. Think about it. Plus The head of this toy isn't going to mirror exactly what it will look like in the movie. If I remember right the head in the CGI pic was almost dead on. Again, not saying it's 100% for sure Baricade, but it fits.

  49. Wasn't the Cop Car seen on a few trucks around filming?

    ReplyDelete
  50. "Wasn't the Cop Car seen on a few trucks around filming?"

    Yes, why yes it was, and you know what that means? THAT THIS IS NOT BARRICADE!

    ReplyDelete
  51. "Yes, why yes it was, and you know what that means? THAT THIS IS NOT BARRICADE!"

    It could also mean that they show Barricade in his previous cop car mode, before showing him scanning a new vehicle.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Yes, why yes it was, and you know what that means? THAT THIS IS NOT BARRICADE!

    Orrrrrrrrrrrr... He will just change his alt mode in the movie? DUUUH?

    ReplyDelete
  53. ok tfw2005 just posted some new pics of the r8 and ill be damn if they got a great close up of his head and i wouldnt be suprised if it ended up being barricade, at first i said no way but these new shots got me thinking otherwise

    ReplyDelete
  54. If I remeber right the pictures of the cop car that showed up around filming time where debatabley old pictures. I don't think it was ever proved that they where authentically new.

    ReplyDelete
  55. It's Wildrider from the Stunticons. I'm 100% sure on this. Take a look at this:
