    What are they up to? That’s the shuttle scene from the movie.

    Guess we know what it is now.

    One of the guesses on FB was Hound. One was Predaking.

    Looks like Hound.

    It's the shuttle scene from the movie featuring Optimus, Sunstreaker and Hound. Hound is closest to the centre of the pic, making it likely that it's him. Also, with MP Sunstreaker just released and a new MP Optimus on the horizon, it wouldn't be smart for a 3rd party company to announce/produce either of those two. Thus again making Hound the most likely of those three.


    I like DX9. Carry is my Rodimus Prime, Chigurgh makes a very good and fun Astrotrain and Richthofen (though the least fun of the three DX9 MP scaled figures I have) is a good powerglide. (Also loved Gewalt and Tyrant keeps tempting me, but both are too large.)

    That said, I'm very happy with Maketoys Gundog and don't consider it likely it will be replaced. Not by an official nor likely another 3P option.


    EDIT: but as pointed out a few posts down, it's not an MP but a WiP so Gundog remains unchallenged.

    Another cool Hound would be nice. Never liked FT's much but another Gundog-like figure would be awesome.

    It's Hound.
    It also feels kind of unnecessary. Between FT and MT I think most people are happy. Most of those who passed on those two are probably waiting on Takara's. But in a sense it's a good sign that companies are willing to go back and redo characters. Means that those unhappy with current offerings may still get another go.

    Hound seems like a good guess but I'm intrigued by the fact that it says "The Next Second."

    It makes me think they are talking about the next second in that scene. Yes the blurry shot is centered on Hound but a second after that the camera zooms on on Prime as he says his iconic "We must stop the Decepticons" line.

    Maybe I'm reading into it too much but the wording has me thinking it's not Hound.

    It is hound. "Dutch" is a reference to Schwarzenegger in Predator which had a predominantly green pallete being in the jungle and all. Dutch was also part of a special forces unit and Hound is a military vehicle.

    Honestly dissapointed in their choice but more choice is always welcome even though i have the FT's version.

    Cant describe how happy I feel at the moment!!
    If DX9 make a new Hound, it's all good news for me. I own Gundog but felt he was just a little too classics like. And just couldn't bring myself to get Willis since he just didn't do anything for me at all, except probably the colour was nice.
    So this from DX9 is my dream come true. In fact, my biggest dream come true would be for DX9 to make an MP Astrotrain V2 (anime accurate).
    But I'll take a Hound anyday from DX9.

    Doesn't the product number - X34 - suggest that this Hound (if that's who it is) is going to be part of their legends scale 'War In Pocket' series?

    Then again, the Dutch flag is top to bottom: red-white-blue.

    So it could be Optimus :D 


    Good point.

    These days almost every 3P is making Masterpiece based figures and were thus quick to think it's MP, but DX9 uses the X for their WiP line. And unlike with their MP line, they're in the 30's

    I expected we'd finally get that grandfather clock transformer judging from the title.
