    If you had to equal Ironhide to an animal, which animal would it be? A bull elephant? A bull cow? A rhinoceros? Your pick.

    So he'd be shot to death by Megatron instead of Sentinel Prime?

    First pick would be a rhinoceros. Maybe a bison/bull after that choice.

    That's...not really a trait that exclusive to rhinoceros'. Basically creatures with noses in general, save for a few exceptions.

    Ironhide WAS an African Elephant in the Beast Wars line.

    "Ironhide WAS an African Elephant in the Beast Wars line."
    That settles it then.

    ...How does that settle the issue? :lol 

    "What kinds of animals could Megatron be?"
    "Well, he was a Tyrannosaurus in Beast Wars."
    "Welp, that's it. No more answers."


    By this logic, Soundwave can never be anything but a tape player. And we all see how that worked out. ;)

    Good point there.

    Bay's films as an example:
    2007: Megatron equals Tyrannosaurus Rex.
    2009: Still the attitude of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
    2011: Hmm... A mix between a powerful angry tiger and a laid-back kitty cat.

    And yet in G1, Megatron killed Ironhide and BW Ironhide is supposedly the G1 charecter...hmmm.

    Oh I remember I posted "What sort of beast mode could Optimus Prime be?" and most people answered a gorilla because of BW.

    If you look up the Beast Wars saga, they made Soundwave a crocodile and Prowl an owl. Unlike those, the elephant works well with Ironhide. But I am open to other choices as good. Not being narrow-minded, just comparing with Beast toys and assessing whether it gels well or not.

    "And yet in G1, Megatron killed Ironhide and BW Ironhide is supposedly the G1 charecter...hmmm."
    I want to like this statement.

    Either a rhino or a bull. Even RiD Ironhide has a bull design on his chest. An elephant works too, I guess.

    A woolly rhinoceros. Along side an Optimus Woolly Mammoth, a Prowl American Lion and a Jazz Cave Hyena.
