All New Transformers Movies Must Have an Evil Mustang, and Here’s the Latest

-Last week, we saw the new Bumblebee from the upcoming movie Transformers: The Last Knight. Now director Michael Bay has shared an image of the new Barricade, a Decepticon Ford Mustang slated to go toe-to-toe with the Autobots’ Bumblebee Camaro.

Barricade made its first big-screen appearance in the 2007 Transformers movie as a Saleen Mustang; this one isn’t a Saleen but it still looks plenty angry.

Barricade certainly looks more impressive than the new Bumblebee, but does that mean we’re rooting for the bad guy? We’re not sure, but given that GM’s product placement in the new Transformers films has made the modern Camaro into an icon of sorts, it makes all the sense in the world that the Mustang would play a bad guy.
