    Well here's another TFA character! This time it's none other than TFA Energon Ironhide! Or should I say Armorhide, since there's, well, allready an Ironhide in the show. He's heavily influenced by Swindle, primarily because a couple of years ago, I made a digibash of Swindle as Ironhide.

    Galactic Powers and Abilities:
    - Is heavily armoured
    - Can maneuver in almost any environment
    - Shoulder mounted sonar makes him a good communications officer

    Bio:

    Armorhide, is well, a rookie when it comes to the Autobots. He has only trained for a few stellar cycles under his trainer, Roadblock Major. Along with three other squad members who seem to have taken a shine to him and who strangely use rhyming to communicate. Roadblock Major has often taken the squad to the depths of Cybertron give them unconventional training, as to better prepare the squad for difficult obstacles. Recently, Armorhide and team have been sent to investigate a distant planet for a batallion calling themselves the "Terrorcons". Because of his dedication and military prowess, Roadblock believes that Armorhide will eventually become a great Autobot warrior, perhaps someday reaching the title of "Prime", if Armorhide could only learn to be a bit less brash when it comes to missions.

    UPDATE:

    Size comparison time!!! I just felt like throwing a quick size comparison of some of the animated stuff I've done. Just for some entertainment which side would win and why? Or maybe, out of everybody, who would be the champ and why? (I actually made the file bigger, but for some reason, uploading it to photobucket made the pic smaller). A bigger version is here: http://destron23.deviantart.com/#/d3adaop

    Destron, I'm giving you an internet high five.

    Did it sting? It should have. I'm pretty pumped.

    XD Thanks Tedimus! Glad to hear it! :D 

    I had a lot of fun making this guy (though I may touch up his eyes, because for some reason, the pupils aren't very visible now). I also hope that everyone gets the references in his bio.

    XD Thanks! I honestly could see him as being one of the characters in the Autobootcamp episode.

    Haha! Thanks! :D 

    I've always liked Ironhide, but I've always had the impression that people didn't really care for the character. I'm really glad that this is getting a nice positive reaction.

    That art's all kinds of awesome. It's great to see Energon stuff get some TFA love for a change. ^_^

    It's nice but you should have done him more massive since he is.

    I kind of like him like this. Ironhide was the new recruit/kid in the show, right? I think this take fits that characteristic pretty well.

    I don't mean that he should be bigger, but he should be larger.
