    This is the second of the two threads I have started. The first covers the smartest Autobots but this one is all about the might within the arms.

    So like the last one this is purely based on what we have seen within the shows, comics, and movies, not based on numbers from tech specs which seemed questionable in certain categories...

    Who would you consider the strongest Autobots?

    This one is a bit tricky to list out since it would almost all be filled with city bots and gestalts. Considering how I including Computron in my top five for the smartest I guess we have to count them.

    Personally I'd separate it into two categories, the first would be filled with guys like...
    Fort Max
    Metroplex
    Omega Supreme
    Defensor
    Superion
    Guys like them, of course these are the first that come to mind when we talk strongest Autobots.

    But why not make a second category where we don't include them? Who would you consider to be the strongest (without considering gestalts and city bots)?
    Grimlock
    Ultra Magnus
    Optimus Prime
    Brawn
    and Ironhide
    Are some who come to mind.

    So you can discuss or even make top fives or tens but who do you consider the strongest Autobots?

    He always seemed average to me. relied more on Magnus and the blasts from the Matrix.

    He had reverted to Hot Rod at that stage. The Dreamwave profile book depicted him as physically very powerful as did his tech specs.

    He threw Galvatron through the side of Unicron. He seemed quite strong in Regeneration.

    Is Ironhide that strong? He's tough and armoured but I wouldn't have thought he was one of the stronger Autobots.

    Previous posters have me bruising the usual suspects like Prime and Grimlock. Here's a few I would consider:

    Inferno
    Hot Spot
    Hoist
    Grapple
    Nosecone
    Scoop
    Countdown

    Sorry I didn't watch the whole episode, I don't know the whole story, I only watched a clip of the fight on youtube.

    Yeah I was going to mention that but he was only that powerful for the first few minutes after he became a Prime so I didn't really count it.

    No mention of Huffer in this thread? Pretty sure he said something like I'm not one of the biggest Autobots but I'm one of the strongest. I think in that episode with the Wooly mammoths.

    Whoa. We must have posted at the same time there!
    Huffer shows his strength in the old Marvel comics where he catches Bomber Bill's oil tanker in one hand and punches Soundwave over with the other - all in the space of one panel!
