    I'm just wondering since I'm seeing this a lot in the forum. Of all the Autobots why him? Is he the most important after Optimus and Bumblebee to you guys?He is to me.

    Probably because his death would cause an impact, but most importantly not on the toy sales. OP and Bumblebee would never be killed off because of the merchandise. Him or Ratchet are most likely to die IMO.

    I can't speak for everyone, but it's not that I want him to die, he just seems more likely than any of the others at this point.

    I do and I don't want him to die. I mean 4 out of the 5 autobots from the first movie have surrvived someone has go to go. Ironhide, Bumblebee, Ratchet could be anyone we won't know until the movie.

    I feel to see why there were so many decepticons and ROTF and only two autobots died.

    Because the Decepticons couldnt be less of a threat if they tried?

    I think thats why people want Ironhide to die. Actually have the Decepticons show some sort of fighting ability.

    I guess he's about the only one they could kill that would have any sort of impact.

    Some people hate the Twins so instead of being sad some people would celebrate. New characters don't get enough development to have any emotional weight to their death. Prime has already been killed off once so a second death might not feel as big. No way they will kill that bastard Bumblebee. Ratchet hasn't really done enough to get one of those Dinobot type deaths.

    Exactly [though I would like The Twins having a truly hearwreching and badass death to redeem the characters].

    Plus, Ironhide's death could open role for development on the other Autobots [showing what they feel after his demise], like Ratchet becoming vengeful and more of a badass soldier with his death, as the movies kind of implied that Ratchet and Ironhide are friends [as on the first movie Ratchet talked to directly to him when he met the eletrict wires, he fought alongside Ironhide for most of the battle, and in the second one, Ratchet and Ironhide discussed that whenether they should leave the planet or not in one brief scene], Bumblebee becoming more serious and being more of a leader, The Wreckers going vengeful, Sideswipe with his spirit crushed or something like that.

    It would also give more of a dark feel to the whole movie, Ironhide is the more proeminent Autobot except for Optimus and Bumblebee, the audience and the characters alike would feel the impact.

    I have no idea why, but I don't want him to die. He is like one of my favorite Autobots.

    I kinda do. See how brutal Crankcase and his pack look? Can Ironhide really survive an encounter with them?

    He'll probably die but like others have said I'd like to see him go out in a great battle. Also, sideswipe will probably also go out in this as well. I hope we get to see him doing some more badass flips and battle tactics. I'd love to see him jump on a side of a building and riding along it during a fighting scene.

    One of my favorite animation models.

    But as a character, he's a non-entity.

    Because he, the grizzled old gunfighter, seems likeliest to go out in a spectacular blaze of glory that would look fantastic on-screen.

    I don't know if you're being sarcastic or not, but if not . . .

    Fail.

    This thread is talking about why people want him to die in Dark of the Moon. As many have said, I think it's because it's most likely at this point he's the most likely to go.

    If he dies, I hope he dies heroically! :)
