    they have some similarities

    -they both transform the same (shoulder pieces angle in)
    -they both make weapons. (some, ironhide, better than others, wheeljack)
    -they both died
    -they are both old-ish bots. wheeljack is old but not jetfire old, and ironhide is a little older than ratchet who is older prime (not by much).

    anything i missed? and what are some comparisons you've found between bots. and cons. or both. other than the obvious. (dreads, arcees, twins, wreckers...ect.)

    Weapon specailtist and Weapon maker.

    You might as well think they were partners.

    I'd relate Ironhide to Optimus more then WheeljaQ


    Both have the pointing up ears.
    They have gears on the side of their heads that move when they talk
    They have the car's front parts on their chests
    Ironhide has the same kind of Mohawk helmet as Optimus and Sentinel with the cheek pads and all.

    well, according to the comics Wheeljack and Ironhide were in the Sentinel Prime main team together with Megatron and Soundwave (I think... I may be wrong, I don't read the comics since many months)

    Ironhide and Bumblebee have similarities, too. They turn into four-wheeled vehicles, they both are Autobots, and they shoot guns!

    Yeah,I'm pretty sure that Movie Ratchet isn't older than Prime. Ironhide? Maybe,Ratchet? No way

    I thought movie prime is the oldest out of the autobots. He might not look it but the primes are as old as you can get. Optimus was just the youngest out of the 13.

    Optimus wasn't one of the original 13.

    :lolol 

    Also Leadfoot's bio and being voiced bu John DiMaggio make me think he's more Wheeljack than Que.

    Que could of became his own charecter.

    I still think he worked just fine as Wheeljack. I don't really understand why people say he's a shitty fighter/weakling, since we never saw him fight. To me, that's kind of like saying that Mirage was a complete dumbass because he never did anything smart. He begged for his life, yeah. But I don't understand how showing fear in the face of death makes you a weakling.
    Plus, how do we know G1 Wheeljack didn't do the same when he was killed?

    But whether people call him Wheeljack or Que, that's their own thing. He was called both, so I don't think it should be made into as big of a deal as everyone else makes it.

    But aside from all of that...

    No, I don't really see how Ironhide and Wheeljack are similar, aside from the very minor things you posted. Just about as many similarities as Mirage and Jazz.

    What I'm bothered by most is that they're upset that an Autobot character is a "weakling" at all. The Autobots aren't war machines like the Decepticons, they don't believe in "survival of the fittest".
