    I really enjoyed Ironhide this time around. He had some good lines, and his moment with the Dreads was badass. I just wish someone had given a damn when he died...Que/Wheeljack gets touching death where Bumblebee says goodbye...Ironhide is left to rust in the parking lot.

    :lol  yeah that was messed up.not even sideswipe said somthing. my guess is, once you see so many bots die at your side, you kinda become immune to it. but a "ironhide, no" or "you will pay for that sentinal" should have been said to at least show that he will be missed.

    It was kind of sad to see Ironhide just die like that. I too loved his personality. I think everyone did. However, I think the Autobots didn't mourn him because they didn't know he was dead just yet. Notice he didn't COMPLETELY rust away until Sentinel got away and they gave chase. Only his fingers were rusting at first.

    Man, I will NEVER be able to forget that. Even though it was a fake robot, it still looked painful as heck.

    Ironhide was shot, then the other Autobots came under fire. They didn't have time to mourn.

    Does no one mention Ironhide at all after he died? No sad faces? Not even Optimus or Ratchet!?

    That scene was brutal, even if it was mostly in CGI. You kind of have to see it.

    They torn the shit out of decepticons, and Optimus Shotgunned Sentinel in the face, that's all the tribute and mourning Ironhide would ever want.

    Ahem. No time. The Autobots were in too much peril constantly to mourn Ironhide.

    in the middle of a war with the decepticons, they wouldnt have any time to think about it. and by the end of the war, they would have forgotten about it. that is why ironhides death is unemotional. i however, have not seen the movie yet, and i am seeing it today at 2:30 :D  so excited.

    Agreed. Shit met the fan right after his death, they didn't exactly have time to stand around and have a funeral.

    Still...Ironhide is the second in command and Optimus' oldest friend. A little "This is for Ironhide!" would have been nice

    No one mentions him specifically. But I got the impression it really affected Prime.

    I was pissed at first. But then I realized the writers had to kill off someone to let the audience know that it was possible for anybody to be killed. It had to be a character that people cared about. It did the job. I was really worried that Bumblebee was gonna be executed.

    I'm sure the autobots all mourn the loss of their 2nd In Command. However like in the military when your confronted with an on going threat you have NO TIME to mourn. Which is the situation in DOTM. They had no time to mourn what was left of Ironhide.

    As was pointed out in another thread, that would have been lame.

    That is not the way i pictured Ironhide's death, They should of had it so he takes on Sentinel, Megatron and Soundwave, kills Soundwave, injures Megatron, and when Ironhide is protecting humans, Sentinel Blasts him, in the final battle in Chicago of course.

    Nobody gave a shit when Jazz died, and he was second in command. Why would anyone care when Ironhide dies?

    Because Jazz had about 4 lines in the first film and seemed to go out with a fight. Ironhide was in effect stitched up, and didn't deserve to be shot in the back like that. It was shocking. Not to mention the emotional engagement he had with the fans who'd followed his character for 3 films.

    Bumblebee was running trying to save his own ass. he probably would have mourned him if he had the chance.
