    You know both the G1 and Movie Ironhides are perhaps two of the most popular versions of the character to date. There's a lot of reasons for it like thier personatly,weapons,look,etc.
    They pretty much have a lot in common. They both died in their repsective universes as well so out of the two which do you think is the most tragic and brutal?

    The G1 Ironhide's death was pretty brutal and tragic however I think the Movie's was more graphic and shocking in my opinon.

    What are your picks?

    Movie. But of course folks will say G1 was more brutal because apparently quick Fusion blast beats rusting to death for some folks.

    I swear, I recall seeing a thread like this a few months ago. But although I haven't seen the G1 movie, I've seen the first 10 or so minutes of it on YouTube and will say DOTM Ironhide's was more brutal. In G1, he was apparently decapitated off-screen by Megatron's fusion cannon. FAR less brutal than being shot point-blank in the chest three times and left to rust to death in a few minutes, as opposed to instant death like in the cartoon.

    G1, because of Megatron's heroic nonsense line.

    G1's hit the heart harder than movie ironhide. Movies was done more for shock value to reveal sentinel as a villain. G1 was a shot threw the heart of NNOOOO!!!!

    G1.

    Not because of it was more brutal in a violence sense, but because you have a greater connection to G1 Ironhide, because he was a main character in G1 S1 and S2, while Movie Ironhide, while a great character, never got that much screen time. So, when G1 Ironhide dies, it's worse because of that connection.

    This. I was just as unmoved for Movie Ironhide's death as I was for Movie Jazz's death. As an aside, both Prime's death in ROTF and Bumblebee's severe wounding had me tense.

    G1. Both were fairly brutal in their own ways, but G1's was more tragic because he was a character who'd had a lot of screentime to develop his character. Movie Ironhide had what, ten lines in the course of three movies?

    This thread exists. I know for a fact it does. I'm gonna go find it, I swear the poll is almost identicle and everything.

    EDIT: Lookit that, just searched "Ironhide" and it was on the second page.

    G1 wasn't for shock value? Right. G1 Ironhide's death was the deffinition of shock value.

    Movie Ironhide. It's not even close. He was betrayed by a comrade and rusted to death

    I like the Bay movies, but does movie Ironhide really even constitute a character? Did he contribute anything to the movies other than shooting or deliver any dialogue other than a couple one-liners per movie? I don't get how anyone is able to be moved by that death at all.

    By ten you mean around 50. He had 22 in the first film alone.

    I hate the Bay movies, but I'll give it to Movie Ironhide hands-down. The scene aboard the shuttle in the 86 movie amounted to Hasbro throwing a bunch of 1984 toys in the toilet and flushing them to make room for others.

    This was taking probably one of the only well-developed Movie bots we got and offing him in a way that made us hate Sentinel upon his villain reveal. Why didn't they kill off the other guys? We didn't know them! Nobody cares! But IRONHIDE, hoo boy. Good thing I was already sitting down.

    G1

    He got shot like 7 times by other Decepticons and got shot in the face by Megatron just a few feet below Megatron's fusion cannon.

    I got more of an emotional reaction out of G1 Ironhide's death to be honest.

    I didn't vote because I believe Movie's was more brutal (being slowly disintegrated from the inside out) while G1's was more tragic. He reached up to stop Megatron with the last of his strength only to be killed and waved off with the line "such heroic nonsense".
