    Here are a few ideas:

    Hound is a member of the older generation of Transformers. He fought alongside Optimus Prime during the early years of the Cybertron war, before joining an elite combat team called The Wreckers, led by an Autobot General known as Magnus.

    He was sent to Earth on a reconnaissance mission. His job was to track a squad of Decepticon spies and report their movements back to Magnus, who was en route to Earth with the rest of the Wreckers to deal with the growing off-world threat. The Decepticons were attempting to influence the outcome of World War Two for their own evil purposes.

    Soon after arriving on Earth, Hound mysteriously lost communication with his team, but decided to continue his mission regardless.
    He tracked a group of Decepticons to a US Army base, where he took the form of a military Jeep to observe them undercover. It wasn’t long before he was discovered...by a human soldier named Sergeant James Wilde.

    After convincing Sgt. Wilde that he wasn’t a Nazi war robot, the two stuck up a unique, and secret, friendship that lasted for many years. During this time, Hound joined his human companion on many missions and developed an unprecedented appreciation for Earth culture.

    It was during one of these missions when tragedy struck, and Sgt. Wilde was killed in action. Hound was distraught, having lost his only friend and companion. He recovered the sergeant’s dogtags and hung them from his vehicle mode’s mirror.

    He continued his mission alone, until one day a fight with a Decepticon soldier left him mortally wounded. To save his own life he went into self-imposed stasis lock and reverted to his vehicle mode.

    His current whereabouts are unknown.

    That would be sweet if Hound appears in TF3.

    Love the design.

    Nice, but if anything named Hound turns up in TF3 it'll most likely make little use of imagination and just be a dog-bot.
    Make Hound a jeep that transforms into a tracker dog. :p 

    At the very least it would continue his connection to Ravage.

    It's not ugly enough to be in the movie, sorry. It also needs more foldy bits and ugly Allspark symbols all over it :D

    Plus his face looks like a metal human, that's Optimus' thing y'dig, you'll have to add some animalistic features to his head (i swear to god all autobots look like a breed of dog in some way)

    Actually....I don't think that'd be a bad idea....he could still keep his position as a "tracker" and it would make sense to either allow him to talk or not, and in one swoop can help give Ravage even more credibility as a sentient being.

    I approve! :thumb

    Man, he looks awesome!

    Good to finally see some more art from you! He looks awesome. I could definitely see him working in Movieverse.

    I love the design and the transformation as I see it from the photo of the jeep looks cool, but the proportions can be a lot better. The head is reeeeally tiny and on a body that otherwise looks like it's got normal proportions. Just scale that up a bit and you be in bidnis.

    Also, the face could be a little more intricate. I love your original design for Hound's head- it's not noticeably human and yet it's got features that are recognizable. This one just seems like a cubed version of his G1 face.

    Bumblebee is a pug and Ironhide is a black pitbull.

    Really great design and a well-thought-out backstory, though I don't imagine anything that intricate would make its way into any of the movies. Comics, definitely.

    I can't help but feel that he's missing something, particularly in the upper body. I'd switch the front wheels to his shoulders and maybe add some kind of weapon to his back to help even out the design. Otherwise, it's fantastic.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone.

    I tried to give him a very stripped-down look. But you're right, he does look very symmetrical. I'm planning on doing a version with a gun attached to his back/shoulder, and also a goggles down/battle-mask mockup. See what that looks like.

    Movie with a hint of G1 making him instantly recognizable as Hound. Great backstory and everything!

    bot mode design looks too "modern" to be an old willy's jeep IMO :p 

    but still, its a great design!

    i'd love to see Hound imagined for the movie-verse

    Looks great! Really evokes Jeeper Creeper too... to me at least.
