    Would have been a better choice if ironhide could had change he's vehicle mode for a Ford F-650 ?

    Because it's basically the exact same thing as what we got. Big ol' pickup truck vs. a slightly different big ol' pickup truck. Why would it be better?

    I had to look him up since I don't watch the movies. He is a GMC topkick so an f650.... all the robots modes are already garbage painted white, so maybe it doesn't matter which American product he is based on.

    You are suggesting that Ironhide should be another model of pickup truck. Everyone is saying it doesn’t matter because the model used and the model you suggested look so similiar. You keep saying the model you suggested fits his personality better. Can you explain how it fits his personality better than the model they used?

    No one is suggesting he be a subcompact.

    ...but you're saying that the replacement for him turning into a pickup truck is for him to turn into...another pickup truck.

    Why would he turn into a different pickup truck when he already turns into a pickup truck?

    They do look quite different, but i agree that there wouldn't be any point in changing the alt mode.

    Are you even reading these posts? Prime's went from turning from a semi-cab to turning into a semi cab. It's the same general type of vehicle, which you are clearly failing to grasp.

    What you are also failing to disclose is how the bloody hell is a Ford F-650 is in any significant, meaningful way, different from the GMC Topkick, WHICH IRONHIDE ALREADY IS.

    But the topkick was discontinued back in 2009-2011.

    So all Topkicks simply disintegrated after 2011?
