    Why is Bulkhead in the series and not Ironhide.... I mean I get it, Animated has to be part of this new show apparently but really, Who would you rather see Ironhide or Bulkhead?

    I mean Ironhide may come later in the series but who would you rather see first?

    I would like to see Ironhide appear in the beginning.

    Ironhide. Hopefully he'll show up later on. Hope he looks more like his movie incarnation too.
    I don't have any real problem with Bulkhead though.

    i think there are more compelling characters to have from animated, sentinel prime being one of them. bulkhead went from being season 3 grimlock to grimlock with a new brain when it came to space bridges (altho clearly not that extreme). like thundercrackah, i don't have any strong feelings against bulkhead, I just think ironhide would have been a better, more traditional choice (especially given the live action movie).

    Ironhide, make him a red pick-up truck with Peter Cullen's voice. I am sure he will at the very least have a cameo or something.

    Bulkhead.
    1) He's had more characterization in one episode than Ironhide has had in 2 films.

    2) I enjoy animated.

    3) It can always be all G1 all the time.

    Bulkhead. Because he's a great character and this cements him as part of the mythos beyond just Animated.

    I personally would want Brawn, but of the two, Bulkhead.

    Bulkhead, as there's more to Transformers than Generation 1.

    Plus he's a great character in Animated and hopefully will be a great character here too.

    Of course if we can have both, and Ironhide be the black armoured weapons specialist of the Movie series, so much the better.

    I dunno. I don't think all the new TF shows need to be G1 clones. As much as people put down AEC, I applaud these lines for not cloning G1. Wheeljack, Sideswipe, Ironhide, Cyclonus, Cliffjumper, Scattorshot... All very far from the G1 versions of these characters.

    So if TFP gets an Ironhide, I hope he's NOT based on G1. Maybe a rookie like Energon or a weapons specialist like the movie or something completely new.

    Yep, that's pretty much what I want.

    I consider the "TF Prime" series to be animated G-2. therefore I think Bulkhead fits better into this newer TF prime series than Ironhide.

    Bulkhead was probably the second Autobot I disliked the most from TFA, but mostly just because he could be a dimwitted jerk without meaning too (Firing at the Mix and Scraps after they'd lost their memory, beating Bee under the Wasp-disguise, ect.) Depending on my mood that made him a tragic idiot or poorly written.

    Still that doesn't stop him from being a developed character and having a very heartwarming friendship with Sari, something I hope carries on with his new incarnation and Miko. It also shows that Hasbro did CARE about TFA despite its cancellation and that Transformers is more than Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Ratchet, Ironhide, Arcee, Megatron, Starscream, Shockwave, and Soundwave. Bulkhead was TFA's baby and I'm happy didn't die with the show and will go on to appear in future reboots.

    Neither. Ironhide had his time in 1984 and Bulkhead's love affair with the girl sounds like it's going to be nauseating.

    As part of their tradition of half-assed attempts to link everything back to G1...somehow... i expect Takara to rename Bulkhead to Ironhide anyway.

    ..and if there's an actual Ironhide, eh just call it Armorhide.

    Ironhide. I had no idea where they came up with Bulkhead when Animated came out (a toy from what I gather was the worst-recieved of the Unicron series), but then and now I would much rather see Ironhide even if it's his movie persona version.

    Must we choose? We met Prime Ironhide in Exodus and WFC so we get Bulkhead in the show from the start, before the gruff old timer shows up. It's fair.
