    We all know Ironhide and Hound are probably the best soldiers in the Autobot team. Mostly because they both work well with guns.

    But who do you think is better?

    Hound by a mile. He actually feels like a real character instead of being random onscreen robot #758.

    Hound.
    Ironhide's only moments of personality were, well never.
    the most characterization he got is a couple of one-liners in the first one.
    The only scenes where he really stood out to me is the gun-flip in the first one and him fighting the dreads in DOTM. Oh man I wish we could've had more scenes like the Dreads battle for all the autobots. Ratchet has more lines in the opening of AOE than he does in DOTM. Literally the only thing I remember him saying in DOTM was "mortar that bridge". might've said something when he was investigating the moon with Optimus but don't recall his line.

    Hound had more character in his introduction than Ironhide had in three movies. About twice as much screentime and four times as many lines, too.

    It really kinda tells you something about the Transformers in this movie.

    Considering Hound had more characterization and dialogue in his first 3 minutes than Ironhide did throughout all 3 previous movies, the answer is obvious. This is what Ironhide should have been, but never was.

    After seeing AOE it makes me think about what could have been. A quiet, emotional scene with Optimus consulting Ironhide about the pain of war, or something to that effect, comes to mind. And now it can never be...

    I know Hound's character was more fleshed out, but I'll always have a soft spot for Ironhide. So Ironhide it is for me.

    Hound killed a guy by throwing his hat at him.

    That's awesome.

    I want that Hound figure even MORE now.

    I agree 240%!

    I LOVE Hound. He is an awesome character and killed the Two-Headed Shockwave with his Cigar!....but I still like Ironhide slightly more....

    Hound has a hat? OK, we need that Leader-class Hound, now.

    I 100% agree with you I haven't seen AOE yet but i like hound already but Ironhide was always my favourite and I think him and the Wreckers tearing up Chicago would have been boss.

    Hound. All of the Hound. Ironhide may have been badass, but Hound was fun. And badass. And he had depth (that scene where he solemnly puts his helmet over his chest...damn). And John Goodman was great as him. "I'm a fat ballerina!"

    I miss Ironhide. But Hound is Walter Sobchak as an Autobot. He's a Wrecker to the core. His guns guns got guns on their guns.

    I do imagine him and Ironhide would be a rather enjoyable on screen duo.
