    Title says/asks it all. I'm really not a fan of the weird Americano-British accent Ironhide has in the Bay movies, so I wouldn't like to hear a version of that in Prime. I'd love to hear Mr Cullen reprise this role, even if it was for a guest appearance of the character.

    I think having Ironhide turn up would also be a great opportunity to give Optimus some much needed character depth/development, with the pair being old battle buds. Imagine them recalling (or even flashbacking to) events in the early days of the great war, when Prime was an idealistic young buck and Ironhide was the ultimate war bastard.

    Even better would be Ironhide taking the piss out of Prime for the time when they both got some shore leave in Tyger Pax, and Prime took home what he thought was a femmebot... yeah, that wouldn't happen....

    No, he won't be.

    And I don't think Ironhide's accent in the movies is British.

    I actually prefer Ironhide to Bulkhead though I like his character too.

    I don't, and I think you know I don't. I'm merely posing the question for the sake of discussion.

    Sounds like a buff David Hyde Pierce to me. Whatever it is I don't think is suits Ironhide. To me, Ironhide should have a Texan style accent.

    They've already got Cullen signed on as Prime, so I don't see why he can't do another voice.

    On the wild chance the animation style isn't going to prevent other bots from showing up at some point then yea it would be really cool. I guess I'm in that same boat of I really liked his G1 voice but I wasn't too happy with his movie voice.

    I would prefer a toned down version of his G1 voice, was not really a fan of how he sounded in the movie; he kind of reminded me of Skylinx.

    Well SOME will show up, we already know about Breakdown, Knockout and possibly Wheeljack, they won't be a CAMEO GALORE like Animated but it won't stick to the same 12 guys forever.

    If he does, I hope not. I don't like Cullen as Ironhide because his voice is just too distinctive. Just sounds like Prime doing a southern accent.

    Depends on what he looks like. If he's very G1 looking, the Southern accent is fine, if he's a black pick-up truck with massive cannons then the British hardman would be the way to go. However, Cullen might want to play Ironhide again so they may find a fine line (black alternate mode, red inner robot).

    I think so far GI Joe Renegades might even have Animated beat for old characters popping up since so many episodes have had new looks for old characters. So I don't think it's a case of Hasbro not wanting to do updates with their cartoons I'm just not sure how many Prime will be able to do.

    I think if we see Ironhide in this series, he'll be much more akin to the movie version. For this reason I don't see Cullen filling the role.

    Would I like for him to? YES.

    I have to wonder if Cullen can even still do the "G1" Ironhide voice? I know a few fans don't care for the way his Prime vocie has aged, I'd assume the same might be true for Ironhide.

    I never had a problem with the one in the films. I thought it sounded appropriate for that version of the character.

    I'm indifferent. Cullen voicing Ironhide has never been as important to me as him voicing Optimus.

    Personally, I've always been curious to how a Kevin Conroy voiced Ironhide would turn out.

    Depends on the Ironhide. Crazy south dude? Cullen go for it.

    Badass black pick up? British hitman.

    Cosigned. I think Ironhide always sounded too close to Prime for my tastes.

    Leadfoot: Same here. His voice might have worked before he became famous as Optimus, but now, it's just a little too much. Besides, I don't think that I could ever take it seriously.

    Chris B: Interesting idea on Ironhide. I myself have been curious as to how an Optimus voiced by Kevin Conroy would go over.
