    Having just rewatched "The Insecticon Syndrome" and "Day of the Machines," I realized Hound plays a larger role in those episodes than I remembered. He also looks really darn similar to MP-47 in the following screenshots (at least to me), particularly the face and eye shape:

    Great shots, but his face is still deeper and fuller in the toon than in the toy. Enough that it still bothers me, but not enough to not want it - I feel this is going to give me the same feeling I had with Sunstreaker - just WOW. How did they fit so much awesome into such a neat little package?

    I do know what you mean with the fuller face, although it doesn't seem to bother me now that I know the longer, more gaunt faces on recent MPs are to accommodate open-mouthed alternate faces. I guess my brain is automatically normalizing it for me now, so it just looks right ;)  I also had a similar reaction to Sunstreaker, though I was feeling more iffy about the jigsaw panel lines than the face. But in hand (and in most non-Takara photos, strangely) that all disappeared, and he's now my favorite Autobot MP (so far).

    I'm not surprised. IIRC Hound was supposed to be Spike's "buddy" and was going to feature prominently in the cartoon. That is why he and Spike were paired up frequently in the pilot. But at some point the writers realized that the Spike/Bumblebee match up worked better so Hound slowly disappeared into the background.

    Thanks to @Phamduc for this image, since I can’t find any threads for it.

    A great shot here, possibly the best one yet of seeing how Hound scales in alt mode. If you ask me he scales mighty well for what they had to accomplish!

    Great shot indeed! What show is this? Also, what is Hound holding?

    Looks like a G1 toy-accurate rifle. Detritus and + repaint confirmed?

    I'm hoping that long rifle comes with this version! I won't be getting any repaints so the accessories that come with this release will have to do!

    Holy compaction Batman!


    It almost feels like including the toy-accurate rifle with him would imply that a + repaint isn't coming soon. But if he's just holding another release's accessory as a teaser, then it could be true.

    It's so strange, we haven't seen an unreleased or unannounced accessory like this before. Could it be an Amazon Japan exclusive bonus, like in the old days?

    Yup, that's definitely his toy-accurate gun.

    Hound doesn't have his mirrors:D 
    Surprised it isn't chromed or pearlescent. Wonder if it got mixed in and is meant for Hound+ or Dietrius.

    I’m glad he has the rifle. Even if it’s not show accurate, he needs a better armament than his tiny hologram gun and the shoulder launcher.

    It's so weird, the gun's gotta be a HA or Amazon exclusive like @Sam said, right? Please don't mean that there's no + repaint coming!

    Looks like some Ironhide level mass shifting to expand in robot mode!

    I really hope there’s a + version. But this worries me as well.
