MPM Ice Cream truck would be fantastic.
MPM-5 Movieverse Barricade Fully Revealed

It looks like those are the same ones Hasbro Pulse's Instagram put up. They definitely let you see that his weird-looking mouth is an artifact of his little triangular lower jaw being open. Hopefully that's more attractive in person - I've always liked the working jaws on HA Barricade and Soundwave, but this one does not thrill me so far.
Everything else, though...

Does Barricade really have that much white on his face in the first movie? I always think of his face as being mostly black, but it could be because my main perception of him is from hazy memories of the film and the original '07 deluxe that I still have.

That thread also includes a foreign-language YouTube video.

Now, to get through the negatives, in part due to his somewhat inhuman anatomy, kibble arrangement, and transformation mechanisms, he's not as wildly poseable in the way that some of the recent Masterpieces are. Waist rotation severely restricted (you have to unpeg a whole bunch of back stuff to give it more that 10 degrees of clearance, and that makes the rest of his torso slightly unstable because that back shell assembly is what holds everything together). While it's nice that he's got the accurate buzzsaw mace weapon, indeed having to practically untransform that whole forearm makes the rest of the arm look pretty clunky, especially the back windscreen piece that has to just hang there, instead of folding up nicely into the mass. Biceps don't freely rotate due to how the elbow joint collides with his shoulder panels. No real wrist joints, although you can unpeg them and kludge a bit more movement out of them than is intended.

Well damn. On second pass, I find a small detail I didn't catch the first time around. His rear wheels (the ones on his wrists) actually split in half and spread apart on the axle, slightly, to replicate his "transformed" wheels from the movie model. Such a small, inconsequential detail, and a bit of a surprising inclusion since they didn't bother to do anything with Prime's wheels (albeit, his wheel transformations are far more impractical and costly to replicate)..
