    Thighs/waist are kind of too skinny making the chest look too broad...dace is kind of meh also... :( 

    That should mean a flood of FT Willis for cheap now though ;) 

    I’ll save my money for Wheeljack

    The hands on this guy really bother me, its like the fingers are relaxed but look odd making a fist, I want something closer to Sunstreakers

    Is it weird that I kind of like my Maketoys Gundog better?
    This official Hound looks great! I may still get it if a review shows me a fun and interesting transformation.
    But I just kind of dig the proportions on the Maketoys version more, I guess.

    If we are lucky. It wouldn't surprise me to see him hit the $150 mark

    Any glaring issues that you have noticed now that you have had some more hands-on time?

    I think all of you are forgetting the fact that this guy looks to have a WAY lower parts count than Sunstreaker. This could be our first $89.99 masterpiece since ironhide.

    Too early for that, if they have shrunk the alt mode,it will be expensive magic like Sunstreaker.

    He was saying it would be cheaper than Sunstreaker because of a lower part count. I'm going Amazon jp anyway so I really won't mind paying what I paid for Sunstreaker

    Nope, I still prefer my toy accurate version as that is Hound to me...but, TTMP is great to fill that toon spots. One of the few toy/toon different bots I will gladly double dip on.

    Looks like those are maybe side mirrors in gray that fold down in bot mode

    I have noticed the 'W' on 3P hounds as well which leads me to believe it may not be licensed

    Wonder how they are going to change that cannon into the one that is on the back of the jeep, which looks very different

    Makes me think though. Is it really that so many are excited that there’s finally a new G1 Masterpiece and automatically say it looks perfect and hold it up to a pedastal because it’s Takara and right away “this is perfect to the screen because they made it”.

    Hound and Sunstreaker could use more accurate show faces. Prime 3.0 looks to be movie accurate and his backpack looks proportionally accurate to the body.

    Still, looking from the outside instead of looking from in, that’s what I noticed now that this guy is revealed. Im glad this new one will be released, but I know the face could use a little work.

    Speaking on the flip side, I’m sure there will be more face options. So a wait and see approach before giving a final opinion should work best. He definitely looks simplistic like Inferno but I can’t say the MP line is becoming flat panels because then Dinobot and Sunstreaker give you more detail as well as MP36. At least I’ve learned to try to understand things from different aspects as opposed to a first party/ third party only approach. When the Amazon preorders come up, I’ll get two Hounds. One for display and one to play with.

    Just saw this live at Wonderfest. Its a much more informal display than I’ve seen at other toy shows (no glass enclosing) but looks cool. They had Hound, anime wheeljack and Streak on display, for some reason. Also Sideswipe+ in a separate display, so I guess a re-issue.

    Great... Now give me a Diaclone Detritus repaint... At least I think it was inspired by Diaclone, either way, MP Decepticon Junkion for THE WIN!

    Very impressed. I'm super happy Takara continues to fill out the 84-85 cast. We are so close.
