    Many have said it, and it's true: Prime's gun looks good on Hound. This is the gun that came with Deluxe Classics Prime-not a very stellar Prime toy, but the gun is quite nice. I had some time to try this combo out and integrate the gun with Hound's alt mode:

    I had to try it out for myself, and am happy with how it turned out. Questions are welcome, and thanks for looking!

    I really like how you integrated the shoulder launcher into the gun.

    The gun does work better with Hound. I incorporated it with my Alt Hound myself.

    I really like your work here, and I think you've presented it well, too. Thanks so much for sharing! :thumb

    I did this for my Alt Hound too... but for some reason, I like this better. I think Classics Hound is going to be poaching Alt Hound's gun soon. :thumb 

    I echo SQ7's question... how did you attach the hologram gun to the Prime gun??

    I hate that hologram gun so much. I can never get it to stay attached properly, and it looks silly attached to Hound's passenger seat. It's the one misstep in an otherwise fantastic toy design.

    Thanks for the kudos, it's good to know I'm not alone in my OCD. :)  As far as presentation goes, the thumbnails help reduce scrolling time, which I'm all for.

    The holo-gun attaches through a rectangular space that I hollowed out with a drill. I was going to work some other way for the holo-gun to attach on the shoulder with a 3mm clip, but didn't like having to make any more holes. And yeah, it's frustrating that Takara couldn't come up with a better way to attach that thing in either mode, because this Hound is one of my faves.

    I chopped up a Star Wars E Web blaster for my Alt Hound... which worked okay, but not nearly as sweet as this. If I ever score that Prime (or just the gun), I'll hook Classics Prowl up. Good job!

    That kind of looks like the gun that came with jeeper creeper. But Hound looks absolutely AMAZING with that gun in both modes.
