Dreamwave comics continuity
Ironworks was seen at the Micros-only bar in Little Iacon. He tried to warn Trip-Up that the chair he was going for belonged to Roller Force. Trip-Up responded by taking the chair anyway, and pushing Ironworks out of his own chair for good measure. He was later seen trying to fight off a group of Decepticons who invaded the Micros' territory.
