"Go chew on a microchip!" is Ironhide's slogan. Prefers
action to words. Oldest, toughest, most battle-tested Autobot. Bodyguard
to Optimus Prime. In charge of guarding anything of importance.
Gruff, but kind. Trithyllium-steel skin makes him nearly invulnerable
to attack. Shoots variety of liquids from supercooled nitrogen to
superheated lead. Has sonar, radar, radiowave detector. Slowest
and most fragile of the group.
Ironhide was available without (1984) or with a rub symbol (1985+).
