Explanation of the conversion: Since there was no individual tech spec for Ironhide II this write-up is based on information in the combined tech specs of Magnaboss and that of the Japanese release of Ironhide II called Santon.

Ironhide II History: Aproximately 300 years after the end of the Great War, Ironhide II, a Maximal named after an Autobot hero, was one of Cybertron’s finest and most accomplished medics. He was a philanthropist and greatly respected life of all kinds. He refused to kill, since as a doctor it was his duty to do otherwise and help the wounded.

Magnaboss Ironhide II traveled with Silverbolt II in order to meet up with Lio Primal on the planet Gaea. Once there Ironhide II and Silverbolt II were reformatted into animal forms native to that planet. Ironhide II was partnered with Prowl II and Silverbolt II in creating the gestalt warrior Magnaboss and together opposed the Predacon forces of Galvatron II.

Returning to Cybertron after the defeat of Megatron II, Magnaboss became a member of the Maximal High Council along with Torca, Air Hammer, Bantor, Battle Unicorn and Corahda. Optimus Primal came before them to warn them of the coming of Unicron, but they questioned his story and ordered him confined for fear he would start a panic among the population of Cybertron (Transformers: Universe #3).

Trivia: Ironhide II shouldn't be confused with Ironhide, an Autobot who turns into a van, or Ironhide III, a Mini-Con.

Ironhide II Powers: Ironhide II is energy efficient and amazingly strong, tough, intelligent and skilled. In robot form he carries two blunt force battle clubs which fire blasts that can easily knock most opponents unconsious. His tusks can project a protective force field. He converts into an elephant which is capable of charging at speeds of over 75 mph and attacking with his tusks. He recovers from damage quicker in beast mode and is better protected from high energon levels as well. Ironhide II combines with Prowl II and Silverbolt II to form Magnaboss.

Ironhide II is a master medic, and is very adept in using non-lethal force to disable his foes.

Weaknesses: Ironhide II is slow and reluctant to harm others. In beast mode he lacks ranged weapons. High energon fields can adversely effect Ironhide II if he stays in robot form for too long. His animal form is protected from high energon levels. He cannot fly.
