Stockade - Movie - Figure

As the movie line slowly comes to a close, we are greeted with the normal conditions of a line closing out... repaints. There certainly are a fill of them for the movie, with more yet to come. However, there are a few original molds coming our way. Landmine has been covered in a review previously. This time around, we'll look at Stockade, which looks to be the last of the original molds for the Deluxe class. Stockade arrives after the 'last battle' to act as a bully towards the Autobots.

Alt Mode

Stockade uses the alt mode form of a Sector 7 issued SUV. The Sector 7 SUV in the movie was based off the GMC Denali (*cough*JIMMY!*cough*cough). While there are subtle design changes to make it look like a generic vehicle, the unmistakable Denali lines are there. The vehicle is almost entirely black, with silver S7 insignias on the front doors. Contrasts include the blue tinted windows, a blue tinted moonroof, blue tinted headlights, the chrome painted grille complete with Decepticon insignia, chrome painted door handles, the faux air vents on the front fenders, the roof rack and the painted in taillights.

Hasbro has done a fine job of making some very believable alt modes for the movie line and Stockade is no exception. If there's any one area to fault the alt mode, it's that the seams for the transformation are plentiful in alt mode. They don't really blare out at you unless you're inspecting it up close, so it's a very minor thing. Transformation is simple.

Robot Mode

Stockade comes out looking quite interesting in robot mode (yes, I know, the shoulder flap is supposed to fold out... sorry!). The legs sport a PVC gray look, while alot more of the Allspark blue shows up in the chest, thighs and forearms. You can find another Decepticon insignia on his left thigh. The head is rather plain for a Decepticon, but looks rather nice. The eyes are piped blue.

Before you go thinking this is a brickformer, here are the points of articulation. Feet: Pin hinge, 90 degree bend. Knees: Screw hinge, 45 degree bend. Hips: Ball joint, 45 degree spread, 215 degree bend. Waist: Pinned, unlimited rotation. Shoulders: Ball joint w/pin, 90 degree wingspan, unlimited rotation, 90 degree inward bend. Elbows: 2pc pin hinge, 90 degree bend. Hands: Common pin hinge on all fingers, 90 degree bend. Head: Pinned, 45 degree rotation. The hips and shoulders have incredible levels of posing, but the overall poseability is hampered by lack of swivel in the arms and thighs. Also, the head is pretty limited in movement.

Stockade even comes with his own gimmick. If you have his forearms positioned right, he has punching action. Pull the roof rack back on the forearm and his hands will extend out about 1-1/2". The hands reset manually. Although he's a bit kibbled in robot mode and poseability isn't perfect, he's still a great non-movie figure and a nice add to the collection.

This thing is full of kibble... the arms scream it! Or do the windows hanging off the panels not count?

Heh, he has Armada Hotshots arms, and transformation scheme. Alt mode looks fantastic, bot mode, most kibble I've seen thus far. I'll have to see better pics before deciding to get this one.

I would like just to have another S7 vehicle. Simply knowing it transform would be enough for me.
