"Never kick down a door that you can blow down with a Satchel Charge!"
When Cobra takes over a city, it has to be won back block by block, house by house, room by room! BARRICADE, G.I. Joe's urban assault specialist, has nerves of steel and trip-hammer reflexes necessary for the job. Outfitted with a suit of flexible composite, laminate armor and a helmet with built-in infrared heat source sensors, Barricade can take on any Cobra agent in an urban environment and "knock his block off" with relative ease.
Barricade (v1) was available in 1993 repackaged on a Battle Corps card prior to the release of Barricade (v2).
Barricade's body is entirely original - no parts were taken from other figures.
Internationally - including China and Europe - Roadblock was sold with the name Barricade. These figures should not be confused with the domestic action figure, Barricade.
