Profile: An Autobot of few words, Ironhide prefers
actions over excessive talking which he refers to as "leaking
lubricant." A veteran of several Great Wars, Ironhide is
one of the oldest and most experienced Autobots currently in active
service. His gruff exterior hides a kind, inner soul whose concern
for life knows no bounds. Younger Autobots often joke about Ironhide
as an antique from a bygone era, but his skill, experience and
loyalty often win them over in the end.
Abilities: Following the battle on Moon Base
Four, Ironhide's body was severely damaged. Utilizing the legendary
Reconfiguration Matrix, Optimus Prime generated Ironhide's new
form. His new body retains his original trilythium-steel alloy
which has been blended with new material and has formed a special
ablative armor making him more resistant to artillery and electromagnetic
attacks. Ironhide's arms house chemical mixtures that can generate
anything from supercooled liquid nitrogen to metal dissolving
acid. He can fire these from emitters built into his wrists. Ironhide
is able to combine with his trailer unit for increased mobility
