    Does anyone else kinda wish they delved more into that story in ROTF, maybe even DOTM?

    It seems by the time he is in NEST, his job becomes his life and theres no mention of his daughter or wife.

    I kinda feel like his deep involvement with the Autobots can really devastate the character's family life, you know? Granted, he's doing all this for their safety from the 'Cons, but sooner or later, there has to be a breaking point.

    What do you guys think?

    Yes. After the first movie, my friends and I noticed Ironhide dropping off Lennox, and we joked at how it would be funny or cute if in the second movie, Ironhide got stuck babysitting for a bit. I still think one of the reasons Ironhide became a favorite, was while he is an absolute bad ass, he is also a sweet guy who clumsily climbs out of a pool, but gently steps over the little girl.

    You know, Ironhide didn't crash in the pool. That was Optimus.

    Um, no? The Topkick was actually in the driveway of the house that Ironhide crashed at. I promise.

    And the reason Lennox never mentions his family again is because Ironhide ate his wife and daughter.

    I always thought it was Optimus because of the godly music that played so, if that was Ironhide, where did Optimus land?

    Sorry, it was Ironhide. Go read the book if you don't believe us. And watch how he walks, slightly duck footed because he's old,not to mention, the trees he hides behind when the dad comes out are also by the GMC Topkick! Optimus landed in the field, and you see him jog in his protoform, just like he does later on when he tries to run away from the Sector 7 guys.

    Did you not see Optimus transforming into the Peterbilt by the highway in the middle of nowhere?

    He lands in the oped field area. It shows his protoform form start to transform. Then he runs off, then he scans the truck that passes him.

    Ironhide, pool.

    Ratchet, warehouse.

    Jazz, baseball field.

    Hacker chick, my pants.

    Atleast Optimus gets that epic transformation entrance in the alley in front of Sam and Mikaela though. That was the best scene.

    It's about how Ironhide ate Lennox's daughter and wife.

    And he's got some badass swords! But hey, why not something special for Ironhide? He even has the old fashion sound when transforming.

    Ok, just an FYI, but we are on the 2nd page now and theres hardly been any discussion regarding what I made this thread about. I know I'm at fault too, but lets all try to get back on target.

    Oh, yeah. Lennox's family should have shown up in ROTF, even if it was a name drop, like Lennox saying how he misses his family or something like that. They should appear in DOTM, but I'm not holding my breath.

    No, Lennox is a secondary character. We have plenty with Sam.

    Lennox and his family strike me as far more worthy of focus than Sam and his folks. Same goes for Epps.

    Sam doesn't bother me. But I do like how apparently he is actually doing more shit this time around.
