"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.
