    Ironhide throws a fit when Mojo leaks lubricants on his feat. He then made a comment how it'd probably rust. Well, um, wasn't he the one who landed in a pool upon his arrival to earth?! :lolol 

    Anyone care to toss up some fanfic to explain this one?

    Ammonia and some other stuff that's found in dog urine that's not found in private pools





    Public pools have everything that's in dog urine and more:rolleyes2

    I don't know much chemistry, but would salt or chlorine have any effect on him? It looked like the owners of that house were pretty well off so I'm guessing they have a fancy salt-based system in their pool (separates the Na and Cl to make Chlorine I think)

    They probably just forced it in there without thinking about it so Ironhide could say something close to his 'leaking lubricants' line as a nod to us old school fans.

    Yeah, its just a joke. "Thats gonna rust" is just a stereotypical "robot, lol" thing to say.

    Looking into the Cybertronian chemistry of it all is just going too far.

    I agree with the, "It's a joke, don't sweat it" outlook. But I'll also toss in my silly fan theory:

    Perhaps the original protoform mode was more or less rust-proof, and it was only after some of Ironhide's pieces tried to replicate parts of the Earth truck that they became susceptible to rust.

    Mistake? Maybe not. When Ironhide landed in the pool, his body was so hot it EVAPORATED all the water in said pool before it could damage him.

    I think he said that only to exaggerate his misfortune (by being urinated on).

    Isn't that what we do? If a computer crashes, you might be angry and say: "Meh, just watch it explode here soon.."

    One shouldn't take everything literally.

    I would just think that in his protoform mode he doesnt have any elements to his body that would actually rust, but when he attains his earth mode, he probably was refering to the parts on him that reflect the vehicle he is transforming into, if I were to really want to dig into the meaning behind that. More than likely he was just being a whiny bot.

    That's what I took it as. Exaggeration for the sake of humor.

    This thread is amazing!

    I love the analysis of every tiny little thing in the Movie, usually with a critical slant, whilst the entire rest of the franchise gets away with all kinds of inconsistencies and fluff without comment.
