Transformers - Target Exclusive AllSpark Barricade
Today we feature one of recent Target Exclusive Transformers figures that got to share the excellent check-lane endcap with the exclusive GI Joe vehicles and the Order 66 Star Wars tubes. There are four of these repainted figures, all packed in robot form in the distinctive tubes. They caught some amount of flack for being just a phoned in repaint with some of the 'AllSpark blue' tossed around, but they still seemed to sell pretty well around here! Preserve readers may remember that the Jazz figure had sold out so quickly, it took a fortunate restock for the Preserve to score one, and all the rest re-sold quickly until all that was left was, sadly, Barricade. So, of course, we feature Barricade today! Click the image below for more pics and details.
Much like the Premium series re-tools that hit the line here at the end, they have updated the bios to at least partially explain why we're getting yet another release of the same figures. The bios on these are pretty short, I guess necessitated by the smaller package, but at least we get some sort of bio, and the consistent tech specs as well!
