The Optimus Prime Barricade RV-10 is a promotional blue and red version of the Barricade RV-10 that was released in 2011.

It comes packaged with ten Whistler Darts.


The Barricade features a single tactical rail on top of the blaster. It is compatible with all shoulder stocks. The muzzle almost looks as though it could accept a barrel extension, but a coating there prevents one from being attached. It also features an iron sight built into the blaster, as well as a jam door on top of the blaster.

It has a revolving cylinder which holds ten darts; this cylinder makes noises when the blaster is fired. Due to its flywheel system, it can fire most types of darts, including Streamline Darts.

The flywheel system for the Barricade automatically begins when the blaster is turned on. Opening the jam door on the Barricade automatically turns off the flywheels, possibly to prevent users' fingers from getting jammed in the flywheels while clearing jammed darts. The trigger can get stuck in the pulled position when darts get jammed. This also causes the switch to be stuck. It is fixed by turning off the blaster and clearing the jam by opening the jam door and fiddling around with the trigger (if it doesn't pop out already) until it pops back out.

The Barricade can be conveniently dual-wielded. However, as with all blasters, dual-reloading can be a problem unless met with practice.


It was available for purchase at the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con; limited quantities of the blaster were online for purchase on

Reloading and firing

To reload the Barricade, load up to ten darts into the cylinder.

Turn on the blaster and wait for the flywheels to charge up. Pull the trigger to fire darts.
