I honestly have to say, I wasn't effected by Ironhides death, I wasn't attatched to the character at all. The thing is, there wasn't much character development for him. If he would if died in ROTF, I would of cared, because his role and character in TF1 was pretty interesting. ROTF lacked character development, meaning I couldn't really get attachted to a character, in this case Ironhide. Ironhide didn't much a role in ROTF, the biggest thing in my book he did was saying, "Punk ass Decepticon!". To me, there was way too much of a gap between TF1 and TF3, to get to know Ironhide well, which is why I really couldn't have any emotion for his death. That's just my opinion, whats yours?
