    well, should he? like if he doesnt come to earth, think he might still possibly get a toy? Hasbro is notorious for repaints&retools-maybe Ratchet with a retooled head, new/no weapons, and something slightly cybertronian. im hoping that since he seems to have Ratchet's cybertronain form, they could retool his wheels into a tank tread kinda thing. or do you think he'll be in a future episode?

    my hopes for him are he gets an earth mode as some sort of delivery truck. he comes to earth looking for Magnus to get repairs, deliver information about the Cons, and/or is trying to find out why he can no longer contact them. then maybe he's like related to ratchet, thus their choice in similarly shaped alt modes&transformations. he can give the Bots some info if he has any too

    that or him as the traitor but is really a triple-crosser ^_^

    I think his toy's base should be RID X-Brawn

    Considering he looks almost exactly like Universe Ironhide, no, save the Animated toy spot for characters that ain't getting other type of representation.

    I hope they bring him on the show. He's really gotten the shaft thus far. A lot of the iconic original G1 Autobot crew (OP, BB, Prowl, Ratchet, Jazz) have already been represented in the show. Ironhide, Wheeljack, Mirage and others should definitely be worked into the show in the near future.

    First we should get Cybertron Mode Ratchet, he had more screen time in that mode then Cybertron Mode Megatron and that got two molds. Once we get that then it can be repainted/retooled into Ironhide.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro eventually does a retool of Animated Ratchet as Ironhide. All they'd need to do is a new head and remove the siren lights.

    That one clip was enough for me to want one.

    We hardly saw his robot mode, And he just got disconnected, he is probably still alive. I don't really see a reason for him except maybe as a repaint.

    Yeah and add a little extra to the transformation to get rid of the beer gut. I like it on ratchet but on ironhide both would be cheap. The again were talking hasbro. Give him the cream lines across the side too.

    Didn't they state that anyone who does appear in Universe won't be appearing in Animated?


    There's already an Ironhide toy planned for Universe.

    Cybertron Ratchet was pretty lame looking, like a tippy-toe tank treads... More characters opposed to multi-versions of the same characters.

    I'd personally prefer a show accurate Starscream before we start getting 5 second cameo characters like Ironhide. At least Wreck Gar and Arcee had full episodes dedicated to them, Ironhide only got a few seconds.

    He should, and probably will. But will Elita-One?
