    Now that we know the military truck is Hound, I'm just wondering how many of you actually wanted it to be Bulkhead?

    Considering how much Prime Bulkhead took the lovable brute with a heart of gold from Animated and made him a bro-fisting meathead brawler, I can't say I really want to see what the movies would then do with that character, realistically.

    I like hound due to the lack of spotlight.

    Only in the expanded canon, not the actual films. To those who make the movies, that 'doesn't count.'

    Ironic that TFP Bulkhead had an altmode more befitting Hound, and TF4 Hound has an altmode that's almost a literal translation of TFA Bulkhead.

    I half expect this to be another one of those situations where Michael Bay says it's one character, and Hasbro says another.

    they wouldn't lower themselves to so much as acknowledge even the mere existence of extended continuities.

    I think it was time that Hound made his return as a main character. Some i'm cool with him being Hound.

    Actually I was thinking he'd be a NEST truck. It was a pleasant surprise that he was an Autobot.

    Acknowledging that Hound would mean acknowledging that crappy PSP game. Which nobody really wants to do.

    I very much expected Bulkhead because he's been in the past two cartoons, so Hound is a very pleasant surprise.

    As much as I love Bulkhead he has been in two cartoon series in a row while Hound just hasn't gotten much attention. Also as other people have said I'm just not sure how well the movie production team would capture Bulkhead's personality given the tone and writing for the movies so far.

    But either way I'd be okay because we've already had some good toy releases for both characters if I don't like the bot mode in the movie I've got both covered without the movie.

    is there any reason to think they'd do any better with Hound?

    I don't think Hound is a bad choice for the movie at all, just that this is a lousy altmode choice for the character. And it's all we have to go on for now.

    I don't want Hound as a hulking brute.

    Must admit, when I first saw the pics, I thought it would be Bulkhead and would have liked for it to be him, but I have nothing against Hound being in the film, they need another big bot, especially without Ironhide. :rip

    I hope Hound is really the name and not just an on set code name. G1 names slapped on movie characters don't mean anything, but it would be nice if Hound got enough popularity to make it into the next cartoon that will do him justice.

    I thought it'd be cool as Bulkhead, but Hound feels more righteous . . . he's been around longer you know. ;)

    Either would have been fine....though the vehicle definitely seems more Bulkhead to me.

    I'm not sold on it being Hound. You know how much they play with names before these movies come out. If it's Hound, it's no big deal, I just don't really know anything about Hound, and Bulkhead is such a simple, immediately communicable character that when he inevitably gets 2 lines, they still may be enough to characterize him.

    I really wanted Bulkhead because I feel like Bay is maybe going for a Transformers Prime type feel for the movie as where we've been seeing them film lately looks like where their command post was in seasons 1 and 2. Hound will be cool though as he will probably be the new weapons specialists like Ironhide was in the other movies.
