Profile: The Mission Commander for the Autobot Earth team, Ironhide is one of the oldest and toughest Autobots. "They don't make them like they used to" is an apt description of Ironhide -- he's yesterday's model, but he's built to last. He’s been a soldier for as long as anyone can remember. The old veteran is a close confidant of Optimus Prime, and before him, Sentinel Prime.

Never one to mince words, Ironhide prefers to communicate his intentions through direct action. He can’t abide those “young punks” who talk a good game, but never follow through. Time and conflict have taken their toll, and he’s seen better days physically. But Ironhide is still renowned for his toughness and determination.

While he can be a hardliner and a curmudgeon, Ironhide is a bit of a softy deep down. He’s got a big spark, and makes friends easily. Never one to back down from a challenge or exhibit fear, he’s still capable of showing up any Autobot or Decepticon upstarts who dismiss him as an old relic.

Abilities: Ironhide possesses great physical strength and above average intelligence. But it’s his eponymous toughness that really sets him apart. His super-dense trithyllium plating is lined with radiation dampeners making him nearly invulnerable to physical and radiation attacks.

He is typically armed with a heavy laser rifle. His arms house emitters that can fire pressurized liquids up to 1,000 feet. He carries a variety of useful liquids, including super-heated metal, a self-igniting petrochemical spray, potent acids, molecular adhesives, and his favorite, liquid nitrogen.

As a security model, Ironhide is equipped with advanced scanners. While capable of performing a number of functions and searching much of the electromagnetic spectrum, his equipment is primarily intended to scan for munitions, hidden enemies, concealed weapons and the like. None of his scanners except his radar suite has a range of more then a mile. His radar has an effective range of 50 miles.

His alternative mode is a massive crew cab pickup in a dark metallic red. His paint is chipped and he’s covered in dents, but his engine purrs like a well-fed tiger. He can reach speeds of approximately 100 miles per hour.

His Holomatter Avatar is a surly gray-haired Caucasian male. He speaks with a southern accent and smokes cigars. He sometimes presents himself as a military officer, retired or otherwise.

Weaknesses: Ironhide isn’t getting younger. Ratchet has patched him back together so many times that many of his systems are jury-rigged and bypassed to the point where they no longer resemble their original configuration. While the old soldier runs just fine, rarely requiring more than a tune-up...Primus help him if he should need a major repair. Or if anyone but Ratchet is forced to make sense of his internal workings.

Ironhide is also one of the slower Autobots, and while he can keep pace with most terrestrial vehicles on a straightaway, his maneuverability is rather poor, especially at high speeds. He’s also a gas hog, lacking the fuel efficiency of younger models.
