    Did Hasbro envision him as a Decepticon, then change thier minds and make him a 'Con? The sculpt and colors really scream Decepticon, even if you discount that, his eyes are red just like a 'Con's are. Plus, Spike's chest armor looks really similar to DOTM Megatron's chest armor.

    Your Thoughts/Opinions.

    Yes. But I can also see him as Very movie Ironhide inspired. Maintaining peace through force and firepower. Brave and formidable as well as an arogrant braggart. But we still dig him. Because he's the best at what he does.'

    The colorscheme also makes the blaster mechtech mode work well with Leader ironhide's colors. Perhaps it was always intended that Ironhide would have this Trooper for backup.
