    Maybe they’re breathing down someone’s neck to get final product as perfect as possible. They might have to do it at breakneck speed to accomplish that feat. The problem is, the projected release date and the planned QC for him have to be neck and neck to be a good Hound figure. Sounds like a pain in the neck and they don’t need to up in their neck in QC problems.

    Here’s hoping Hound will be a great figure.

    I love the look of the re-done turn style figures but I’m just not sure if I need to buy them again since I have all of them from the original run.

    Otherwise, the magnet would have been an attractive solution!

    Interestingly enough about Hound's neck situation...

    ...Star Saber has something to say about that.

    Wow that’s an excellent point and I wish you had brought this up earlier! Takara has already done the head on an armature and it worked fine. Of course there was another head underneath to keep the larger head in place. Oh well I have hope that it’s a non-issue in hand!

    Here’s hoping they show Hound’s alt mode next to a Datsun at Wonderfest. It’s a bit concerning that they still haven’t shown him next to a carbot in alt mode. Even if it’s a little too large I’ll be ok with it. I think one of the reasons why all the versions of an MP Hound look huge in alt mode is because most of the car bots are all really low sports cars that are much shorter than the average car. The 280Z is the tallest alt mode I believe.

    maybe Takara collaborated with Necka on this one? Either way customers will be breathing down their necks for a while about it. They're not known for releasing new figures at break neck speeds. It's just not the way they do things in their neck of the woods. Who's the pencil neck who signed off on this thing anyway?

    Ok, everyone is joking and saying neck gap will be fixed but to mee it looks like a creepy decapitated head and I already have a great Hound in Willis. It is a problem for many of us. I really do want to love this and hope they fix the issue.

    I doubt they will. He will have the floating neck thing upon release. I don't really mind it all that much...is it ideal? No.

    Same.

    The only part of the e-mail that's probably matters translates to: "Delivery date: 2019-12-31 - 2020-01-03"
