GM Kills Ironhide

According to Jalopnik, the GM Topkick which is the alt mode of Ironhide, is being discontinued.

GM Statement Regarding Wind Down Of Medium Duty Truck Production

After four years of working with multiple potential buyers, General Motors has decided to wind-down its medium-duty truck operations. Production of the Chevy Kodiak and GMC Topkick medium duty trucks will cease by July 31, 2009.
That cannot be good news for Ironhide's continued survival in the third movie.

  3. He'll either reformat or be replaced by someone like Trailbreaker.

  7. It doesn't mean anything..

    Just because it's discontinued won't mean they can't still use him. Ironhide isn't going anywhere...

    Michael Bay can still use the truck, GM can't stop him from doing it..

  9. Just as long as his next alt mode isn't a red mini-van, it will be OK.

  10. whats all the fuss about? ironhide will return as the same truck even if he's in trasformers 7---optimus was an old truck that they "pimped"--GM put of the hummer too--does that mean rachet will not show up in other movies?---also the production pple-they can jus repair the truck if its damaged over the yrs--it jus so happen that he scanned a GM truck----i think his alt mode will remain as good as new once the battles are over and he gets rest

  11. Well for everyone arguing that this isn't G1 enough, He died in the '86 movie, didn't he?

  12. That doesn't mean the end for an Ironhide TopKick. He can still be the truck, it's not like they update the truck every movie. Once he becomes the truck, even if they discontinue it, he can still stay the truck.
