The way I see it, at least he kicked some serious ass before he went. I saw DOTM with my friend who's a Starscream fan and after he died in the most pathetic way I thought, "Well at least Ironhide didn't go out like THAT."
Yeah, I was bummed about Optimus arm too cuz clearly Ratchet sucks at repairing his teamates(see Ironhide's right eye)
