    If Prime died, (well for a while anyway) who would be a better leader in his absence or so?
    I vote Ironhide. He would make a better leader in terms of strength, and intelligence. Plus Rodimus/Hot Rod to me is annoying.

    Anyone agree/disagree?

    without a rodimus in the movieverse, its hard to say who would be a better leader. its asking us to compare an apple to... nothing. itdoesnt make sense.

    From the Autobot forces we currently know about, I'd say either Ironhide or maybe Arcee, seeing as she's led before...Probably Ironhide though.

    I agree, since this is the movie forum, you can't really ask this question untill(or even if) we get a movie version of the Rodster.

    And when you think about it, Ironhide(Movie Ironhide.) wouldn't be a good leader since he didn't even really want to save the humans in the first film. Though I'll bet that's a big selling point for some fans. -_-'
    But seriously, Ironhide was more a soldier then a leader.

    The point?

    We cannot judge something if we don't even know what we are judging.

    From a Movie perspective, we barely saw anything from Ironhide. None of the Auotbots were really *that* developed.

    Plus, as it has been stated before, we do not know anything about a Movieverse Hot Rod/Rodimus - so how could we have an opinion of him?

    Now if you wanted to ask from a G1 perspective you'd also have to be more specific, because in my opinion Hot Rod and Rodimus are pretty different characters and we actually see more of Rodimus than we do Hot Rod.

    Either way, the poll/thread needs to be alot more specific...

    In a movieverse perspective, I'd say neither for 2 reasons - Hot Rod / Rodimus isn't in it (yet), and Ironhide is, well, a little too triggerhappy IMO.

    Bring in Ultra Magnus, and then we'll be talking...

    Assuming a movie Rodimus/Hot Rod would be like the G1 incarnation, I would have to go with Ironhide. He has more experience and better skills to get the job done right.

    If it were a G1 esque Hot Rod/Rodimus we were talking about, I would say him.

    Thanks about it, Ironhide, on at least 2 occasions, wanted to blast away at many living people/animals.

    (Witwicky's, Mojo, maybe kind of Sam and Mikaela.)

    Ironhide didn't kill the original Prime.
