Everytime I see someone mention Ironhide here, people always compare him to Bulkhead. But what is so similar about them? Let's look at it. Bulkhead is a massive Autobot who is very kind-hearted and conscious of his large size. He is prone to judging people, for example not wishing to help Vince because he seemed like a jerk. He is the big lug who is also a kind and caring bot who would help his friends in a heartbeat. He is kind towards most humans and will gladly protect them with his life. He uses his large size in combat and is quite powerful because of it. Ironhide is an Autobot usually just shorter than Prime and is Optimus' right hand man and oldest friend. He has a gruff and war veteran like attitude and prefers to shoot first and ask questions later. He is the Autobot's one man wrecking machine and is incredibly lethal when working with Optimus. He protects the humans but only because that means he can blow up Decepticons. He isn't the big guy of the Autobots, he is the hardened war veteran that's still just as lethal as he was eons ago. So I ask this: how are they so similar? They're completely different and people comparing them as very similar is ridiculous.
